East Churchfield Road is a beautiful road that occupies an outstanding spot on the cusp of Poet’s Corner, thereby falling into the most alluring spot in Acton. A park runs along one side of the road, and the other side is occupied by grand residential properties.
The road is rich with history, and it was one developed alongside a few others by the Goldsmiths Company. Former famous Goldsmith, John Perryn, also lived in a large house in the area and left much land to the Goldsmiths Company.
The former Goldsmith Company almshouses, which were erected in 1811 and extended in 1818, can also be found here. Situated in the centre of the road, these spectacular buildings are now used for residential purposes and known as Goldsmiths Buildings.
Although originally the plan was to build more large houses on East Churchfield Road and those surrounding it, the Goldsmith Company eventually sold 21 acres to a local board, hence Acton Park was developed in 1888.
The road attracts the aspirational, and is characterised by period properties throughout. From quaint one-bedroom cottages in the Goldsmiths Buildings, to detached seven-bed houses with driveways, there’s a wonderful array of properties available here.
This location provides an excellent base for commuters, families and young professionals too, as it is only moments away from Acton Central, East Acton and Acton Mainline stations. The bus stops of the Vale are also a short distance away and one can even cut through the park on a nice day.
East Churchfield Road is one of the prime spots in Acton, not only because it is so aesthetically appealing, but also because it has great links in and out of London. It’s also within close proximity to both Acton High Street and Churchfield Road, and their fantastic amenities, pubs and independent shops.
