Try following the piccadily line into town, it depends mostly on your
budget, but chiswick park is a pretty good compromise, looks like it'll
take an hour or so from there to work, if you're lucky you'll find
somewhere well situated for walking to acton town, chiswick park and
turnham green stations.  The tube map also says trains run from ealing
broadway to heathrow airport (it's a bus from there to stockley park) -
ealing is quite self-contained for a lot of things while still being
reasonable for getting into london.  If you'd be driving in, you could add
richmond as another candidate for pretty nice area without being so far
from london, and fulham which feels much more real london.

That said, I don't think any of the people I know who work in the area
live particularly close to town.
