This home, located on the council estate and known as the Harlech Tower was featured in the opening credits of ‘Only Fools and Horses’. However, recently it sold for an amazing amount of money (Just over one million dollars) and is presumed to be the first time that a seven figure digit has been received for a property on the estate.
Although ‘Only Fools and Horses was set in Peckham, south London, Del Boy’s home was actually Harlech Tower in Acton

This four bedroom townhouse was built during the massive regeneration program on the former sink estate.
It is 1,736 square foot house set over four floors and also comes with a garden, two terraces, and a garage!
It was built by Countryside Properties in partnership with housing provider L&Q and Ealing Council.
This upgrade is far superior to the Trotter brothers’ 80s flat. The new furnishings include walnut finish doors, stone worktops, and two roof terraces.

The goal is to demolish 50 tower blocks by 2024 and replace it with 2,500 new properties with both affordable and private housing.
The director at Countryside said, “We now look forward to building on the success achieved so far by continuing to engage with the community in the remainder of the regeneration program.”
This redevelopment is also being organized in phases and a community board has even been formed. Since the formation of these new homes created so far, employment opportunities have been created which also includes a horticulture project which trains young people to work with landscaping and gardens.
The tower is located in Acton which is ten miles from Peckham which is the famous location in the show where Del Boy lived.
The redevelopment will be designed to enjoy outdoor spaces in order to create a social and lively place to be.
The flat was perfectly suited for Del and Rodney in the 80s.
The 50 tower blocks are set for demolition in 2024 to be replaced by 2,500 new properties.
80 percent of existing residents have opted to be rehoused in the new homes at Acton Gardens.
