The west London neighbourhood of Notting Hill has a vibrant community with period property conversions and pastel hued houses. Known for hosting the famous Notting Hill Carnival, it is also home to the world-renowned Portobello Market. The area was put on the map in 1999 with the film ‘Notting Hill’ starring Julia Roberts.
Notting Hill, Popular London Neighbourhood
There are excellent transport links available at Notting Hill Gate including the Circle, Central, and District lines. “With the ability to easily access the rest of London and the diversity this area offers makes Notting Hill an ideal location for young couples,” says, Joanne Lilly, Director at Dexters Notting Hill Estate Agents.
Located in the heart of Notting Hill, Princes Mews is a meticulously refurbished modern property. A part of Westminster City Council’s Bayswater Conservation Area, Princes Mews offers luxurious living whilst surrounded by all the diversity and culture Notting Hill has to offer. Situated within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the immaculate four bedroom house has a fantastic glass staircase that is the home's focal point.
The green space of Holland Park is another lovely attribute of this area. Holland Park has extensive woodlands for central London and is home to animals as majestic as peacocks. The park also has a Japanese garden, known as the Kyoto Garden. This graceful garden was a gift from the city of Kyoto to commemorate the long friendship between Japan and Great Britain. Nearby are also the Royal parks of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, adding to the area's affluence.

One of the many colourful Notting Hill streets is Lancaster Road. Its iconic row of rainbow homes is an Instagrammer’s dream. On top of that, the loud colours of this road are the embodiment of Notting Hill, and portray the lively energy surrounding this area.
Ledbury Road is a beautiful converted Victorian house in the middle of this fashionable neighbourhood. The open plan home has a delightful west facing balcony, large window doors and high ceilings. All of these features create extensive elements of space. Conveniently positioned off of Westbourne Grove, “the eccentric one bedroom property is perfect for entertaining, with its great reception area,” says, Tom Foreman-Browne, Director at Dexters Notting Hill Estate Agents.
