Guide to living in St John’s Wood

The St John’s Wood area boasts tree-lined residential streets and a village-like community. Its proximity to central London, which is either a brisk walk or two stops on the tube to west London, attracts young professionals who find it hard to leave and eventually stay for the good schools and neighbourly atmosphere.

Properties in St John’s Wood

Developed from the early nineteenth century, St John’s Wood is one of the few places in London that offers ‘villa’ properties with large gardens on tree-lined terraces. This, and its proximity to central London, creates some of the most sought after and exclusive property in London. In the 1960s, St John’s Wood was designated a Conservation Area, and many of the houses are protected by English Heritage. The area also has many smaller houses in either mews or terrace properties. There are also a few new-build portered apartments, such as Embassy Court and Pavilion Apartments; the wide range of upmarket properties mean there is something for everyone.

Living in St John’s Wood

The area offers busy bars, restaurants and boutiques along St John’s Wood High Street, making it a social hub during workdays and weekends alike. There is also a strong multicultural presence with thriving Jewish, Middle Eastern and American communities, reflected in its numerous specialist shops and restaurants. Attractions such as Lord’s Cricket Ground and Abbey Road’s famous pedestrian crossing bring in crowds of tourists and sports fans to this upmarket and picturesque area.
