St George’s residential-led development Dickens Yard has launched its newest collection of superbly-appointed homes

Set in the heart of thriving Ealing town centre, just a short walk from Ealing Broadway Station, Vista Apartment’s 96 Manhattans, one, two and three bedroom residences, scheduled for completion in 2017/18, are the latest to launch at St George’s contemporary Dickens Yard development.

The development’s landscaped gardens and contemporary architecture blend seamlessly with Ealing’s green spaces and local historic landmarks, including Ealing’s parish church, Town Hall and Old Fire Station, which have all been integrated into the design of the development to create an attractive setting. Picturesque pedestrian boulevards link the three public squares across the development to complement the expansive parkland that inspired architectural historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner to give Ealing its prestigious “Queen of the Suburbs” title.  The Vista Apartments notably feature superb views of Victoria Square, the development’s piazza centrepiece, and Ealing’s 19th century Christ the Saviour Parish Church.


Designed by award-winning urban architects John Thompson and Partners, each home within the Vista Apartments collection offers large, open living spaces with high ceilings, extensive glazing and generous natural lighting, as well as substantial outdoor balconies and terrace areas. 

Ian Dobie, Managing Director of St George West London, comments: “The collection at Dickens Yard provides living spaces for aspiring homeowners seeking attractive homes with modern specifications and quality finishing in a vibrant location. Dickens Yard combines these characteristics with Ealing’s scenic surroundings. Just a few minutes’ walk from Ealing Broadway station, Vista Apartments residents can enjoy stylish and serene interiors without forfeiting excellent connectivity across the capital. Through careful attention to the demands of buyers in today’s housing market, we have created the definitive living experience for a cosmopolitan lifestyle.”

A selection of contemporary colour palettes allows potential buyers to choose natural, calming tones and textures that will be used throughout their home. Combining sophisticated decor with high-quality appliances, the refined interiors of the Vista Apartments are also furnished with Siemens kitchenware and Villeroy & Boch bathroom fittings.

Residents at the Vista Apartments can use several exclusive facilities on offer at Dickens Yard. Private luxury spa facilities including a gymnasium, swimming pool, sauna, steam room and treatment room will allow owners to unwind without leaving the development.* A dedicated 24 hour concierge service is also available.

A number of stylish retail outlets on-site at Dickens Yard will add new vibrancy and economic value to Ealing’s town centre, while tomorrow’s professionals can benefit from the five minute walk to the University of West London from Dickens Yard. Several top-rated private schools including HarrowSchool, St Benedict’s School and DurstonHouseSchool for Boys are also close by.

Dickens Yard is perfectly positioned to capitalise on Ealing’s excellent transport links. Ealing Broadway’s Central and District Line services on the London Underground provide easy access to the West End, Westfield shopping centre in Shepherd’s Bush and central London in minutes. Direct routes to Paddington station and Heathrow airport are also available.

Ealing is also anticipating Crossrail’s arrival in 2019. Set to reduce train times to Bond Street and CanaryWharf by 52 per cent and 43 per cent respectively.  Crossrail, Europe’s largest on-going infrastructure project, will also bring diverse new investment to the local area as property values are expected to rise by up to 32 per cent over the next five years.
