Property in Kensington

Kensington has some of London’s finest architecture, not only belonging to the museums, but also in the residential properties in Kensington. There are gracious terraces and squares of Victorian stuccoed houses, many with their own private gardens where access is granted only to residents.

The Victorian age saw houses in this upper class area increase and become even more grand in their designs. However, nearly all of these large white houses have now been divided into apartments and studio flats to rent or buy.

From the small mews houses with cobbled streets and the Victorian properties divided into flats, to the new build apartments, Kensington offers a fascinating combination of fashionable modern London life and stately, grandiloquent Victorian architecture.
