With 698 flats set around new public squares and pedestrianised lanes, brought to life with shops, restaurants, markets and street theatre, Dickens Yard in Ealing has created a new town centre hub.
Vista Apartments, above, the latest phase, includes penthouses with enormous 3,391sq ft terraces, below. Homes come with a package of hotel-type extras — a smart entrance foyer with 24-hour concierge, underground parking and residents’ spa.
The scheme dovetails with surrounding heritage buildings, including Ealing’s gothic-style town hall, a Victorian church and a fine Thirties fire station. From £549,950. Call developer St George on 020 8568 1100.
