WhatHouse? takes a tour of the three-bedroom townhouse show home at Acton Gardens, a Countryside and L&Q joint venture, in West London…

Acton Gardens is Countryside and L&Q’s flagship regeneration of the South Acton Estate in West London, delivering more than 3,400 new homes over 15 years. Combining urban amenities with village comforts, Acton Gardens is London’s most exciting new neighbourhood.

Holm Villas is a collection of three-bedroom townhouses for sale, situated to benefit from the best of Acton’s many transport connections. The beautifully designed houses that make up Holm Villas provide a comfortable, relaxing family atmosphere with ample room for entertaining. Airy and light, the expansive living spaces enjoy a seamless connection to nature, opening out to private patios surrounded by landscaped gardens.

Paul Dawson, design director at Honky, comments: “London purchasers keen for outside space often have the choice between garden, roof terrace or balcony. Not so with this impressive townhouse which features all three. Moments from the bustling hub that is Acton, the luxury of having all three is clearly a massive draw. With that in mind, we set about creating the furnishing scheme from the outside in.

Acton Gardens (Countryside)Living room/dining area: “The ground floor is dedicated to family living. The double aspect space flows seamlessly through to the generous garden with relaxed sofas in teak and black webbing. We have employed a range of open grained woods and several key furniture pieces feature cane detailing. The natural palette of tone & texture runs throughout. With this as a frame work we have lifted the scheme with accent colours ranging from sage to amber. This varied accent palette shares the same tonality to ensure that they work together seamlessly and convey how people live today.”    

Acton Gardens (Countryside)Guest bedroom: “The second bedroom, with the same double aspect and floor-to-ceiling glazing as the ground floor, is full of light. The king-size bed demonstrates the true scale of this room which in truth feels more akin to that of a master bedroom."                 

Acton Gardens (Countryside and L&Q)Third bedroom: “Bedroom three is geared up for the youngest member of the family. Whilst the room can happily take a double bed, our single canopied bed allows for plenty of floor space for play. The harlequin wall covering, tasselled light fitting and pom-pom trim give this room a pretty and playful feel."

Acton Gardens (Countryside and L&Q)Master bedroom: “The top floor is altogether a more grown up affair with the look and feel of a boutique hotel. The Japanese floating bed is luxuriously styled and features a bespoke headboard wall in both suede and a textured weave. Antique brass metal accents are to be found in the choice of dressing table, feature table and pendant lighting – all adding to the glamorous appeal."

Acton Gardens (Countryside and L&Q)Roof terrace: “The master bedroom provides direct access to an intimate private balcony. Across the landing is the generous roof terrace, perfect for sun-downers with friends. This is the final stop on our journey of blurring the inside and outside."

The new marketing suite on Acton High Street is now open, and you can view the fully-furnished three-bedroom townhouse show home for yourself.
