Acton Green

Acton Green has a claim to be inside Chiswick – it has the W4 postal code – and houses there are often described by estate agents’ particulars as being in “Chiswick Park”, after the local tube station.

The area is divided from the main part of Acton by the railway lines and Acton Green extends roughly to St Albans Avenue in the east.

The properties in the area was mostly built in the late Victorian and early Edwardian eras. Apart from the original houses, there have been a number of new mews developments in recent years. In contrast to neighbouring Bedford Park, many of the terraced properties have been converted into flats. Some of the streets are very close to the railway lines, but that does not stop flats there being popular. There are also a few mansion blocks and individual new houses.

Acton Lane is the spine of the area off which the streets of Acton Green run east and west. To the east are roads such as Kingscote Road and Savile Road. To the west is Church Path and roads off it such as Rothschild Road and Antrobus Road. Near the railway lines there are some converted warehouses, and “Chiswick View” is a block of flats created out of a former transformer station. There are modern mews developments off Church Path.
