About Avalon, Ealing
A unique development
These newly built properties are located in an enviable position directly opposite Drayton Green, one of Ealing’s finest open spaces. The homes boast an impressive specification which includes a fully fitted kitchen along with elegant bathrooms and en-suites. In addition some homes will also feature private balconies, terraces or gardens, and private parking will be available for selected properties. Avalon provides an unique opportunity to get a foot on the property ladder in a green, leafy and established residential area.
For everyday essentials, there is a Waitrose supermarket conveniently located within minutes of the development, along with a range of convenience shops and cafes on Argyle Road. A little further afield, Uxbridge Road and Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre offer a mix of independent outlets and big brand names in fashion, lifestyle and food. There is also a farmers’ market close by every Saturday.
For a serious retail therapy session, the West End is just a 23-minute tube journey from Ealing Broadway Station. Sport and fitness fans will find a number of gyms and fitness centres in the area together with clubs for all sorts of sports including golf, football, rugby and cricket. Parks and open spaces are plentiful, from the formal layout of Walpole Park behind Sir John Soane’s house at Pitshanger Manor, to one of west London’s largest green spaces, Gunnersbury Park. Situated in Pope’s Lane, Gunnersbury Park museum, a listed mansion once home to the Rothschild family, is at its heart.
