This beautiful top floor three-bedroom apartment in Ealing Village, a charming and pretty Grade II-listed estate, designed in 1934 by R. Thomas and Partners.
The estate was originally intended to appeal to actors and producers at nearby Ealing Studios and retains many of its original features, including private tennis courts, an outdoor residents' pool, clubhouse and expansive and well-kept gardens.
Aesthetically, the architecture draws inspiration from the Art Deco period, incorporating fluted green roof tiles, ornate gables and red brickwork, as well as original Crittal windows.
Access to the apartment is gained on the third floor. There is a high quality real wood oak floor to the hallway and main living room, arguably the heart of the apartment, which is positioned at the far end of the plan with access via Crittal doors to the large balcony. The lounge features an impressive and unique art deco influenced wood panelled wall feature.
It has an original, ceramic fireplace and is bathed in natural light, care of a bay window on the westerley-facing aspect.
The kitchen is positioned to one side of the entrance hall and has a further glazed door with access out, onto a fire-escape at the rear of the building. There are beautiful Crittal windows over the sink and worktops, and contemporary white 'pebble effect' tiles from Mandarin Stone underfoot. Storage spaces have been created exploiting the pitch of the roof.
A modern bathroom that is positioned adjacent and has the same beautiful 'pebble effect' tile as the kitchen, with Aqua tiles from Mandarin Stone on the splashback wall (the kitchen tiles are bottle green, again from Mandarin Stone). The rest of the room has been wood panelled, with a Art Deco influenced designed wallpaper adding some colour and vibrancy. Sanitaryware is from Burlington, with a stunning chrome vintage style shower with exposed valves.
The master bedroom is a generous size and has a further set of Crittal doors which open out to the terrace. There are built in wardrobes painted with matching Little Greene colours.
A further two bedrooms are positioned opposite the living room, the smaller room a ideal home office or Nursery.
Ealing Village is a private, gated community. There are expansive communal gardens, looked after by the estate's gardener, with perfect spots for barbecues and picnics in the warmer summer months. There are also a small number of communal allotments, located behind the former air-raid warden's shelter. Residents also have use of Ealing Village's clubhouse for events, as well as the swimming pool and tennis courts. There is parking space for every resident within the community and a concierge service.
In the last 7 years the estate has undergone an extensive refurbishment, with new roofing and windows throughout. Consulting with the original window fabricators, Crittal double-glazed replicas of the originals have been designed to satisfy the listed status of the estate.
Ealing Village is a short walk from Ealing Broadway with its wide array of cafes, restaurants and bars. Further green space can be found on Ealing Common or Hanger Hill Park.
The nearest Tube stations is North Ealing, approximately 7 minutes' walk from the apartment, running Piccadilly Line services to central London ion 25 minutes.
