In a nod to iconic British wartime photographer Roger Fenton, Barratt London has announced the launch of the Fenton Apartments at Eastman Village.

The development offers prospective buyers a selection of one-, two- —, and three-bedroom apartments in the heart of a top London redevelopment area.

 The developer is also announcing the opening of a 6.2-acre green link, which will connect Eastman Village to nearby Headstone Manor.

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.

Homages to the history of photography begin with the site’s name. George Eastman – the site’s namesake – was the founder of Kodak, the company that invented roll film and brought photography to the masses. At the same time, Roger Fenton was best known for his iconic and influential photography during the 1800s. The developer has also restored the factory’s iconic chimney, a landmark in the Harrow skyline. 

The latest block is 15 stories tall and is one of the tallest buildings within the development. Apartments come in one-, two- —, and three-bedroom layouts with spacious open-plan living and a balcony or terrace, providing residents with that all-important outdoor space. There are an additional three duplex apartments available in the building.

Residents on the upper floors of the apartments will enjoy breathtaking views. Those who choose the southeast-facing apartments will also be treated to a picture-perfect view of London’s skyline every day.

Fenton Apartments has the added benefit of being one of the nearest blocks to the train station at Eastman Village. Its residents will also enjoy walking through the development’s 6.2 acres of extensive landscaped parkland and gardens. There is also a residents’ gym, planned cafés, restaurant, and supermarket.

Barratt London prides itself on its high-quality designs. For Eastman Village, the renowned developer works with prolific architect Pollard Thomas Edwards to build over 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 the site’s rich heritage inspires subtle graphics in the signage and balcony screens.


Joseph Antoniazzi, director of sales & marketing for Barratt West London, comments: “Eastman Village is a landmark project for the wider Harrow 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, Fenton Apartments, integrates perfectly into the development.”

“The recent launch of our new expansive sales suite is a key milestone for the development, and we would encourage anyone interested to book an appointment to come and view their future home. We expect the latest phase to continue to be popular with 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. For residents who travel via the underground, the station also services the Bakerloo line. This enables Zone Two travel times while living in Zone Five.

Education is also an essential 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 percent of schools in Harrow are judged by Ofsted as ‘Good or ‘Outstanding’, making them ideal choices for families.

The Fenton Apartments features 71 residences, including one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments and duplexes. Prices start from £339,000.
