Notting Hill is a district located in West London. The area was made famous worldwide in the Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts’ 1999 film Notting Hill. With Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park to its south-east and filled with quirky, culturally rich areas like Portobello Road, Notting Hill is fashionable and affluent. The area is famous for its chic restaurants, nightlife, and excellent shopping and has been a hotspot for artists and alternative culture for decades.
Notting Hill has a great range of properties, from flats to large family houses. The majority of properties in this cosmopolitan area were built in the Victorian era, offering a mix of stucco and London stock brick. In addition, Princedale Road and Portland Road has a range of charming mews and cottages. In recent years, there has also a growing number of new build developments on old commercial sites.
Notting Hill will not disappoint even the most discerning super-prime property buyer. Grandiose townhouses and villas lining the streets of Kensington Park Gardens, Norland Square, and Chepstow Villas attract international buyers worldwide. The area also features characteristic period townhouses such as those found in Landsdowne Crescent or Elgin Crescent, which are much sought-after for their elegant charm and exclusive communal gardens that offer a tranquil getaway from the bustling capital.
Due to its fashionable history as one of the centres of bohemian culture in London, buyers in this area are as diverse as the district itself. Notting Hill attracts everyone from young professionals to families. Many celebrity names in music and film also reside in this popular area to enjoy its sophisticated nightlife, trendy restaurants and other high-end amenities.
