A piece of local history
When purchasing a new home at Triumph House, you are securing yourself a piece of local history. For many years the unit on the ground floor was run as a motorcycle shop - a heritage we have tried to reflect, not least in the scheme’s name.
Dating back as far as the early 1900s, local company Whitby’s ran its dealership from here, and was one of the largest Triumph and BSA distributors in the South East. The premises were then purchased and run by motorcycle enthusiasts and racing legends Brian Hunter and Tom Dickie. The pair successfully operated from here for a number of decades, whilst pursuing successful racing careers.
Both famous within the motor racing circuit in the sixties and seventies, the pair notched up some considerable successes. Not least, in 1966 Tom Dickie won the Manx Grand Prix, before going on to win the 24-hour endurance race the Bol d’Or in 1970.
In addition to competing alongside his friend and colleague, in May 1969 Brian (pictured) added another accolade to his name. Brian played his part in the Trans-Atlantic Air Race between London and New York, transporting the eventual winner for the UK leg of the race on his Triumph Tiger 110.
An emerging part west London, Acton offers its residents quick and direct access into the city, while the neighbouring towns of Chiswick, Ealing and Shepherds Bush are all within easy reach.
The area boasts an array of individual high streets, offering everything from independent cafés and coffee shops to florists, bakeries and small supermarkets.
From everyday essentials to serious shopping
Step out of your front door and you will find yourself on Acton High Street, which offers the convenience of a large supermarket, coupled with an array of local independents.
For those in search of high fashion and a true retail experience, then look no further than Westfield London - one of the UK’s premier shopping destinations. Here you will find everything from designer brands to high street favourites, along with a wide range of bars and restaurants - plenty to keep you occupied.
Fine ales to fine dining
In Acton itself you will find a broad selection of cafés and gastro pubs. Local favourites include the George and Dragon, which boasts its very own microbrewery. Other well-loved haunts include The Rocket, which offers a tempting menu of British classics, or why not try The Station House Pub and Dining Room with its cosy interiors and extensive beer garden.
If you are looking for a true, foodie destination then neighbouring Chiswick will not disappoint. From its two Michelin star restaurants (Hedone and La Trompette) to an impressive number of bistros and brasseries, you will have trouble deciding where to visit first.
Outdoor pursuits and indoor retreats
Residents in this part of London are spoilt with the many parks and green open spaces available to them. Whether it’s a game of tennis or making use of the putting green in Acton Park or participating in the ‘park run’ at Gunnersbury Park, there is plenty to see and do. The area also benefits from a large number of gym and leisure amenities, including The Park Club (which remains open but is currently undergoing an £8m refurbishment), along with the Everyone Active Acton Centre, a fantastic facility that boasts a 100 station gym as well as swimming pools, dance studios and its own library.
