The Buying Agents cover St James, Mayfair and surrounding areas.
Initially developed in the 17th Century as a residential area exclusively for the aristocracy, St James’s is in Central London in the City of Westminster. It borders Piccadilly to its north and The Mall to the south, Green Park to the west and The Haymarket to the east. Although it maintained its status as one of London’s most elegant residential addresses until the Second World War, it is primarily a high-end commercial district.
As one of the most expensive areas of London, it is synonymous with super-prime residential property. Yet, around St James’s Park, just a stone’s throw away from Buckingham Palace and Downing Street, there are luxury properties of all ages. In addition, the impressive terraces of houses designed by John Nash, known as Carlton House Terrace.
As an equally prestigious commercial and residential address, super prime property prices remain high in St James’s. With commercial buildings in such high demand, purchasing in the area would be a solid long-term investment. Residential capital growth is driven by low supply and corporate lets prop up the rental market.
The area is known for its exclusivity and privacy. With a diverse residential property offering, including spacious apartments and grand, palatial homes, buyers range from affluent families to successful entrepreneurs. Stylish one-bedroom flats start around the million-pound mark and many of the large houses regularly sell in excess of £100M .
The larger private residencies in the area rarely make the open market. If you are considering a purchase we would recommend you enquire about our off market acquisition service.
