The £150m redevelopment of the Green Man Estate has brought over 770 new homes to the area and represents a huge transformation, but the grand period homes lining The Avenue and surrounding roads remain. It means there’s a great mix of property types and sizes, giving the area a broad appeal. The schools are also great with the Conran-designed St Johns Primary School, Drayton Green Primary School and Springhallow School for children with special educational needs.
Like much of the area, West Ealing is characterised by open spaces and there’s plenty here for sporty types, with the Ealing Eagles Running Club, Ealing Golf Club and Ealing Trailfinders Rugby Club. For those who prefer to watch rather than participate, The Drayton Court Hotel shows many live sports and events in their impressive beer garden, and plays host to ‘Shakespeare in the Garden’ every summer.
