  • Barton Apartments, the latest phase of Barratt London’s Eastman Village development, set to attract owner-occupiers and investors

  • The regeneration project is located in one of London’s top regeneration areas, benefitting from quick links into London’s city centre, making it an attractive investment opportunity in Zone 5.

HONG KONG, 8 April 2024 - Property investors in Hong Kong can purchase homes at Barton Apartments, the latest phase of the highly acclaimed Eastman Village, a mixed-use property development in West London.

Located on the site of the former Kodak film factory, Eastman Village is part of a larger £1.75bn improvement scheme in Harrow which will include two new schools, 3,000 jobs, shops, leisure facilities and commercial space. Boasting five different train lines running into the capital, and a choice of more than 30 local schools in Harrow that have been given the top Ofsted rating of “Outstanding”, the development is set to be a popular location for families and commuters alike.

Barton Apartments comprise a selection of one and two-bedroom apartments and three-bedroom duplex apartments, situated in the heart of a top London redevelopment area, which can achieve rental yields of up to 6.4%.

The Barton Apartments are named after trailblazing photographer Emma Barton. Emma was an English portrait photographer who was ahead of her time and hailed as the leading pictorial photographer[1] in the early 1900s.

Barratt London’s references to the history of photography begin with the site’s name, George Eastman – the village’s namesake was the founder of Kodak, the company that invented roll film and brought photography to the masses. The newest launch at Eastman Village will be ready for residents to move into in the latter half of 2025. Apartments come in one- two-and three-bedroom layouts with access to landscaped podium gardens, underground parking and balconies on selected plots.

Green space can be found in abundance in the surrounding areas – the development sits next to a landscaped park which will serve as the new Green Link in the heart of residential Harrow.

Barton Apartments will be the closest block to the new link and its 6.2 acres of green space, as well as Headstone Manor – one of Harrow’s most famous tourist attractions with its green park and museum. There is also a newly opened residents' gym, planned cafés, restaurant, onsite school, multiple playgrounds and an on-site supermarket for the wider development. Fittingly, these are the closest homes to Headstone Lane Overground station on the newly named Suffragette line, another nod to women who made history, which is a 14-minute walk away.

Barratt London prides itself on its high-quality designs. For Eastman Village, the renowned housebuilder is working with prolific architect Pollard Thomas Edwards to build 2,000 modern homes that blend seamlessly with the iconic site. The design features red bricks throughout the development to reference the original Kodak buildings, while subtle graphics in the signage and balcony screens are inspired by the site’s rich heritage.

Rosa Tsui, Associate Director of International Residential at JLL, comments: “Eastman Village is a landmark project in the area. The regeneration of the site is providing a beautiful place to live that blends history with modern living. The latest phase at Eastman Village, Barton Apartments, integrates perfectly into the development. We expect it will appeal to investors and buyers moving from the local and surrounding areas”.

Travelling into central London is a breeze from Eastman Village. Residents can reach Euston Station in just 12 minutes by train from Harrow & Wealdstone station, which is just a 12-minute walk away, or travel directly on the underground via the Bakerloo line. This enables central London living in zone 5.

For those looking to travel further afield, the development is near to the new TfL Superloop which connects Harrow to Heathrow, North Finchley, White City and multiple key outer-London town centres.

Education is also an important aspect of living in Harrow. The town is best known for the prestigious school that bears its name, but it also has plenty more excellent schools for its residents. In fact, 98 per cent of schools in Harrow are judged by Ofsted as ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’, making it an ideal choice for families.

There are 35 residences at the Barton Apartments, featuring one-, two-, and three-bedroom duplex apartments with a balcony and terrace in all homes. Prices start from HKD 3,350,265 (£339,000).
