THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS PROPERTY ADDRESSES IN LONDON

THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS PROPERTY ADDRESSES IN LONDON

Home to more than 80 billionaires, London now has the world’s largest concentration of ultra-high-net-worth individuals in a single city.

Naturally, it is the financial sector that fuels this growth but the retail, luxury goods, media, technology and real estate industries all contribute to making London a centre of wealth.

As well as business opportunities, London offers high-class areas that are next to parks and luxury shops plus some of the finest hotels and restaurants that give an unrivalled air of grandness and ostentation.

So, if you’re looking for a luxury London property, where should you live?

Knightsbridge

After Kensington Palace Gate (aka ‘Billionaire’s Boulevard’) Knightsbridge Road is the most expensive residential street in London. Knightsbridge has Harrods and easy access to Hyde Park, plus a wealth of culinary delights including Harvey Nichols Fifth Floor Bar, the Mandarin Bar at the Mandarin Oriental or The Blue Bar at The Berkeley.

Kensington

Kensington has a high volume of quality building stock, with period architecture influenced by French and Dutch designs. The area is family-friendly with access to museums, and prestigious schools such as Bassett House, Kensington Park School and Queen’s Gate School.

Shoppers are well catered for with Sloane Square, King’s Road and Kensington High Street offering top brands and delightful bars and restaurants. Antique shops are situated in Kensington Church Street.

Belgravia and Eaton Square

Belgravia is characterised by grand terraces of white stucco houses and squares, the jewel in the crown being Eaton Square. Belgravia is so exclusive it is known all over the world as being one of the best areas to live and stay in London.

There are four Michelin-starred restaurants in the area, including Petrus, Gordon Ramsay’s French restaurant.

Mayfair

Once known for its private members’ clubs, Mayfair has become the trendy brother to Belgravia being home to millennials who currently make up the largest demographic. These young professionals, aged between 25 and 39, like luxury but they also like to work and play.

Chelsea

Chelsea covers so much – there are 30 parks in the borough, Kings Road has a plethora of shops, bars and restaurants. Tom’s Kitchen, Bluebird and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay are here. There is the Chelsea Physic Garden and of course, Chelsea is close to the Thames with house and apartments on Cheyne Walk as well as very desirable houseboats.

Chelsea has a bohemian air with many studios and smaller properties available.

Hampstead

Hampstead Heath, known to locals as “The Heath”, is a 791-acre park with some of the oldest, most beautiful trees in London. The Heath generates a feeling of a village or small town outside London but is only half an hour from the City.

Courtenay Avenue, a street between Hampstead Heath and Highgate Golf Club, is up there with average prices of £19.5 million. If you want to feel that you live in the country, while being very much a part of the city, Hampstead is for you.
