Exclusive and fashionable, this part of London is known for attractive terraces of large freehold Victorian townhouses, as well as portered purpose-built apartments in the period mansion blocks overlooking Holland Park itself.
Unsurprisingly, it is now one of the most expensive residential districts not only in London, but anywhere in the world. Many countries also have embassies here.
The most notable architectural residential development of the area is The Royal Crescent, designed by Robert Cantwell in 1839. Although not strictly a crescent, but two quadrant terraces in Regency style, the building emulates its namesake in Bath with its white stucco front, in similar style to properties in London’s other smart residential areas. Today many of these Grade II listed four-storey houses have been sympathetically converted to a very high standard into modern leasehold and freehold residences.
Holland Park’s international community is drawn to the fabulous range of high-class shopping and restaurants in areas around the park such as High Street Kensington, Notting Hill, Holland Park Avenue, Portobello Market, Westbourne Grove, Westfield Shopping Centre, Clarendon Cross and Ledbury Road.
A variety of large gated residences are often available to rent on a short or long term let basis, as are stylishly furnished leasehold apartments in the Victorian mansion blocks. These properties are often within walking distance of the excellent transport links to both the West End and the City from Holland Park or Notting Hill Gate tube stations. It is also incredibly easy to travel further west to Brook Green or Shepherd’s Bush.
Holland Park is a district and public park in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in west Central London. It is widely regarded as one of the most romantic parks in London because of its plentiful wildlife and secluded hideaways. There are no official boundaries to the district but unofficially they are Kensington High Street to the south, Holland Road to the west, Holland Park Avenue to the north and Kensington Church Street to the east.
Holland Park and its surrounding area are home to a wide selection of very good independent, international and comprehensive schools for boys and girls between 5 and 18 years of age. Norland Place School, Pembridge Hall School and Wetherby Pre-Preparatory are all popular schools in Holland Park and Notting Hill, while Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School and St Paul’s Girls School are also nearby. For good quality international schools, there is the Ecole Elémentaire Jacques Prévert in Brook Green, and La Scuola Italiana a Londra on Holland Park Avenue which opened in September 2010.
