Acton Town, west London
Currently Full

We’re partnering with Women’s Pioneer Housing to offer property guardian 1-bed flats to women in Acton. Situated opposite Acton Town underground station, the properties provide an ideal base for those looking for excellent access to central London balanced with a welcome retreat. Packed full of green spaces, good pubs and some of the best transport links London has to offer, Acton is fast growing in popularity.

In line with the mission of Women’s Pioneer Housing to provide homes and services that offer a springboard for independent women to achieve their potential, these 1-bed flats will only be available to those who identify as women. The properties are available for sole occupancy, or for women-only couples.

What’s available? Currently full.

The property

Layout: The properties consist of a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. The bedroom will fit a single bed comfortably, or a double bed with little space leftover.

Outdoor space: 

The properties are situated within a small complex with a garden border, peppered with trees which provide a good level of privacy from the road. Surrounding streets are leafy and relatively quiet, and within just five minutes’ stroll, you can reach the former grand estate now known as Gunnersbury Park. Complete with lakes, landmark buildings, museum and sports facilities, this idyllic green space provides plenty of opportunity to enjoy some tranquillity away from the bustle of the city.

Parking/bike storage: You can store your bike inside the property. There is free parking available on streets nearby.

The high street

A seven minute walk up Gunnersbury Lane will bring you to the heart of Acton where you’ll find a good mix of independent retailers, pubs, cafes and amenities.

Supermarkets include Tesco, Morrisons and Lidl, as well as Bulgarian food store Kasmetcheto, bakery and butchers Mleczko, Marrakech supermarket and Zevi International.

Head to The Aeronaut for a top notch Sunday roast and The George & Dragon for eclectic live music nights and Thai food. Al Baladi Lebanese restaurant is much loved in the area, while authentic Portuguese cafe Vilamoura offers an outstanding selection of small dishes to try in an intimate setting.

Homeware supplies can be sought at Wilko or Acton Bargain Household, while Acton General Store will sell you anything from kitchen equipment to DIY essentials.

Arts and leisure

Formerly a local library, The independent ActOne Cinema and Cafe is a great space for catching the latest release in a relaxed atmosphere – or for remote working and a bite to eat.

For climbing enthusiasts, Arch Acton has a relaxed atmosphere with some good tunes. Nearby, there’s also Acton Gym with cardio equipment, weights, pool, plus fitness classes and personal training. And check out Oxygen Freejumping’s new trampoline Park in west Acton, with 150 interconnected trampolines complete with assault course.

For something more sedate, head to Gunnersbury Park museum, set within a former stately home, to get an insight into local history with artefacts from across west London.
