The 8 hottest postcodes in london

  2. 2. LONDON 2014  London is a leading global city buzzing with excitement. With the huge success of the London Olympics London’s popularity is at its highest ever. A diverse cosmopolitan hub for finance, education and the arts, London is becoming more and more chic. Many business tycoons and high net worth families own homes in the UK capital. In such a huge metropolis it can be hard for foreign investors to know where to look when purchasing property. So what are the hottest postcodes in London?
  3. 3. W 1S H A N OVER SQU A R E A N D SAVILE ROW Hanover Square is situated south-west of the popular shopping district Oxford Circus, making it close to some outstanding local amenities. Savile Row is known primarily for its world famous tailoring and bespoke suit-making shops. It was on top of 3 Savile Row that the Beatles made their final live performance. The Royal Geographical Society previously occupied number 1 Savile row, where they planned exhibitions to the South-Pole, Africa and Asia. With its rich history and luxurious feel W1S is definitely a hot London postcode.
  4. 4. 3 S AV I L E R O W - T H E B E AT L E S F I N A L L I V E P E R F O R M A N C E WA S O N T H E R O O F O F T H I S B U I L D I N G .
  5. 5. W1J MAYFAIR Home to the American embassy and exclusive restaurant Nobu, Mayfair is a well-known luxurious area in London. The freehold of a large portion of Mayfair is owned by the Queen herself, or the Crown Estate to be exact. Rents here are among the steepest in London and the world. Although most property in Mayfair is now commercial there is still a substantial amount of residential properties on offer. The exclusive London hotels Claridge’s and The Dorchester are situated here making Mayfair a popular hang out for high net worth individuals and expat professionals.
  6. 6. 3) W11 NOTTING HILL Notting Hill is a leafy cosmopolitan area that is home to the Carnival every summer. The most famous street in Notting Hill is Portobello road. It is here that Portobello market is held which is a popular tourist attraction along with the Notting Hill film tour. In terms of property London estate agents Savills report that two thirds of their sales in Notting Hill were in the £2,000,000 plus bracket. Notting Hill’s unique feel away from the bustle of more central locations make it popular amongst large families.
  8. 8. SW7 SOUTH KENSINGTON My personal favourite area, South Kensington is home to the French consulate, the Iranian embassy and the Austrian trade commission. London’s best museums are here namely the Natural History Museum, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Science Museum. With some fantastic Georgian style townhouses and the southern entrance to Hyde Park it is no wonder South Kensington is a popular London location. If you’re looking for a new build in South Ken it will be difficult, most flat here are high quality conversions.
  9. 9. SW3 CHELSEA Located next to the river Thames, Chelsea is often called the borough of artists. Oscar Wilde himself had a home on Tite Street. Chelsea is also home to one of the largest communities of Americans living outside of the United States. King’s Road is the most well-known road in Chelsea and it was named for King Charles II. Filled with both modern and traditional style houses and apartments SW3 has always been a popular London location.
  11. 11. SW1X KNIGHTSBRIDGE Knightsbridge is positioned in between well known London landmarks Hyde Park and St James’. It is also home to Harrods, one of the most famous luxury shopping centres in the world. This exclusive area is also where the world record apartment “Hyde Park One” was sold for £134,000,000. This unique property sits above the exclusive McLaren and Rolex retail shops. In 2007 The Times reported that 14 of Britain’s two hundred most expensive streets were in Knightsbridge.
  12. 12. TW10 RICHMOND HILL Richmond Hill is home to one of the best views in London. In fact the view is so good that it’s the only view in England that is protected under UK law. This stunning town located next to the river Thames is a popular spot for many celebrities and famous musicians. Both Pete Townsend and Mick Jagger have homes here. International rugby teams have been known to stay at the Richmond Hill Hotel when they come to compete in Twickenham stadium. Although Richmond is in zone 4 there is a 18 minute fast train directly to London Waterloo, this makes this leafy suburb a great place to live for commuters with a family.
  14. 14. N2 HAMPSTEAD GARDEN SUBURB Hampstead Garden Suburb is home to London’s most exclusive street, the Bishops Avenue. Often called Billionaires Row, this street houses 66 luxury properties of varied architectural style. This road is popular with many of the “uber-rich” for good reason. Ten of the houses are owned by the Saudi Royal family, whilst other owners of houses on the street include the Sultan of Brunei, Steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal and Heather Mills (the former wife of Paul McCartney). However, the Guardian recently produced an article that showed how some of these mansions have been left vacant for years and subsequently internally they are in bad condition. A certain level of vacancy is really to be expected when buyers are coming from the Middle East and Russia, local developers argue that Bishops Avenue is in transition and new apartments are under construction there.
