Acton Gardens

Thanks to the highly anticipated arrival of Crossrail in 2018, Acton has been highlighted by Rentonomy, the property letting website, as one of the top three areas in London to purchase a property to buy-to-let. The study also highlighted the regeneration of the area and long-term house price trends which all combine to ensure Acton offers a fantastic opportunity for investment.

Buy-to-let purchasers seeking an attractive investment property should take a look at Acton Gardens in W3, the ambitious regeneration of the 52 acre South Acton estate by Acton Gardens LLP — a joint venture between Countryside and L&Q. As highlighted by Hackett Estate Agents, investors can expect a gross yield of 4.2% on a one bedroom property at Liberty Quarter, amounting to £1,350 per calendar month, rising to £2,275 on a three bedroom property, with a gross yield also at 4.2%.

The first phase of 80 apartments at Acton Gardens sold in just 10 months and the second phase, Liberty Quarter set in an impressive building and designed by RIBA Stirling Prize winning architect Alison Brooks has a selection of contemporary one, two and three bedroom apartments and three and four bedroom duplex überhaus apartments available.

Andrew Loveday, Sales and Marketing Director of Countryside, comments: “Acton Gardens is proving extremely popular with buyers due to the regeneration of the area and its close proximity to five underground and rail stations. With average monthly rental prices in Acton of £1,200 for a one bedroom apartment and £1,680 for a two bedroom apartment according to Zoopla, these properties offer an excellent opportunity for potential investors.”

Apartments at Acton Gardens benefit from the highest standard of contemporary design, convenience and comfort, with expansive glazing, airy light-filled rooms and desirable outside space in the form of a balcony or terrace. Also available are a selection of duplex überhaus apartments which are designed to maximise

space and light with private entrances, split levels, spacious living areas, generous outside terraces and balconies to upper and lower levels and some with private gardens.

Featuring a superb specification with quality fittings and a superior finish, investors should have no trouble in attracting tenants. Living rooms and hallways have walnut-effect laminate flooring, while neutral carpets are fitted to bedrooms. Bathrooms feature sparkling white sanitaryware and stylish chrome accessories, complete with fitted mirrors and towel radiators, while the kitchens have contemporary streamlined units, reconstituted stone worktops and a range of appliances.

Acton will benefit hugely in 2018 when Crossrail, the major new east–west rail link, is operating from Acton Main Line Station which is located just over a mile from Acton Gardens. This will significantly improve journey times into and across the Capital.

Acton Gardens will evolve over the coming years into a vibrant urban village, comprising more than 2,500 new homes beautifully designed around a series of parks, squares and play areas, with communal gardens and podium courtyards. The masterplan includes a new sports ground; a central plaza with a shop, youth centre and other community facilities; and a proposed new bus route and street network to link the development to the surrounding area.

Prices start from £375,000 for a one bedroom apartment, £495,000 for a two bedroom property and £675,000 for a three bedroom duplex überhaus apartment. For further sales information, visit Acton Gardens is open Thursday to Monday from 10am until 5pm.
