Hanover Private are real estate specialists in super prime property sales and lettings in Holland Park.

Holland Park is a serene and unique area of West London, which, despite being surrounded by busy, bustling Kensington, Notting Hill and Shepherds Bush, has remained as exclusive as it was in the 17th century.

Once the site of a major Roman road, the area takes its name from Lord Holland and the Holland House Estate, a Jacobean stately home built in 1605 on 500 acres of farmland which stretched as far as the current location of Earls Court Station. The estate was gradually sold for residential development, leading to the birth of Holland Park, as a desirable destination for affluent Londoners. The original Holland House was destroyed during the Blitz, although ruins can still be seen in Holland Park, a public park created from the last remaining portion of the estate today.

Insiders often refer to Holland Park as the ‘new Notting Hill’, due to the influx of privacy-seeking international residents and well-known public figures who have migrated here from Notting Hill, to escape the crowds and tourists, while still enjoying luxurious amenities, beautiful properties and a European ambience. In addition, with easy access to the M4 and M40, Holland Park is particularly popular with those who own a second home in nearby countryside, such as the Cotswolds.

Architecture in Holland Park

As a result of various periods of residential development in Holland Park, a range of different architectural styles can be found here, including Georgian terraced properties, Victorian townhouses, detached villas, Grade II listed stucco-fronted properties, historic mews houses and cottages. For those seeking an apartment, there are also a number of red-brick mansion blocks overlooking Holland Park.

What makes Holland Park so special?

Holland Park allows residents a sense of privacy which can be difficult to find in West London, while not forcing them to be removed from cultural attractions and high-quality services. The area has a distinct village atmosphere with close relationships between neighbours and families who have based themselves Holland Park for many years. The beautiful green spaces of Holland Park and Avondale Gardens, along with the excellent schools, also make this pocket of London particularly attractive to families.
