GUIDE TO HOUSES IN HYDE PARK & BAYSWATER

HYDE PARK & BAYSWATER OVERVIEW

Hyde Park is one of the most desirable areas in London. It has both the open green space of Hyde Park & Kensington Gardens and the proximity to the West End shops and restaurants. Many are attracted to the grand white stucco terraces and garden squares. Residents in the area tend to be families taking advantage of the good schools, or professional couples and singles appreciating the easy commute to Central London. There is a strong sense of community with many residents moving to the area and staying. This is especially true in Connaught Village where annual fetes are held often with guest appearances from the local celebrities such as Claudia Winkelman, Tony Blair and the Beckham family.

The area is predominantly boutiques and independents lending itself to a strong café culture. There is an eclectic mix of residents from all around the world which is reflected in the variety of restaurants. Further towards the more cosmopolitan area of Bayswater you will find Whiteleys, London’s first department store, that is home to more of the well-known chains. Shopping mecca Oxford Street is also close by as well as the West End and Marylebone Village shops. You will never be at a loss for things to do with All Star Lanes bowling venue and Electric and Everyman Cinema’s both in the area. 

HOUSES IN HYDE PARK & BAYSWATER

A majority of the housing is the very desirable large white stucco fronted buildings, around 2,000 sq ft – 4,000 sq ft over 4 or 5 floors. These are often split into flats and situated around the garden squares such as Hyde Park Gardens and Hyde Park Street. The smaller mews houses are also popular and offer a little community in themselves. These period properties tend to attract European and English buyers.

Purpose built mansion blocks with porters that look over the park are popular with Middle East buyers and other foreign investors. Bayswater has benefitted from recent regeneration and is home to more high spec apartment blocks. This cosmopolitan area has drawn in Middle Eastern, American and Brazilian residents. The renowned Hyde Park Estate provides rental houses and flats that are highly desirable.
