The St James 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 located in Central London in the City of Westminster. It is bordered by Piccadilly to its north, The Mall and St James’s Park to the south, Green Park to the west and The Haymarket to the east. Although it maintained its status as one of the most elegant residential addresses in London until the Second World War, today it is primarily a high-end commercial district.
As one of the most expensive areas of London St James is synonymous with super-prime residential property. Around St James’s Park, just a stone’s throw away from Buckingham Palace and Downing Street, there are beautiful luxury properties to be found, including exquisite penthouses, and 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 spaces in such high demand, there is no question that purchasing a St James’s property would be an excellent long-term investment. Not only would a St James’s property prove fruitful in terms of capital growth if you should decide to sell later on, but businesses are willing to pay extremely high rents for the privilege of having such an illustrious address.
St James’s is known for an exclusivity and privacy. With a diverse residential property offering, including spacious apartments and grand, palatial homes, buyers range from affluent families to successful entrepreneurs. With stylish one-bedroom apartments in St James’s coming in at well over the million-pound mark, the area is undoubtedly a residential enclave for the elite and the super-wealthy, despite the shift towards commercial buyers in the last 60 years.
