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

Living on the fringes of Hyde Park, one of London’s finest Royal Parks, allows residents a sense of tranquility amongst the chaos of Central London. Everything the capital has to offer is moments away from the shops of Knightsbridge to the restaurants of Park Lane, yet the presence of this beautiful expanse of green space lends an element of peace and calm to everyday life.

Land once belonging to the Catholic Church, Henry VIII acquired Hyde Park following the dissolution of the monasteries, and transformed it into a hunting ground for sporting purposes and entertaining foreign dignitaries. In 1637 Charles I opened the park to the general public, and during the eighteenth century efforts to landscape Hyde Park were introduced with the development of the Serpentine Lake. Notable features of the park now include Speakers Corner, the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial, and the Serpentine Sackler Gallery.

As the park borders the areas of Mayfair, Belgravia, Knightsbridge and Kensington, residents can enjoy both the community and amenities of these distinct quarters while also benefiting from views over the park.

Architecture in Hyde Park

Architecture in the properties surrounding Hyde Park is predominantly Georgian and Victorian, with the occasional contemporary building. Most properties were built in the Italianate style, stucco-fronted, purpose-built blocks of apartments and maisonettes, although some red-brick period properties can be found to the north of Hyde Park. In contrast, One Hyde Park on Knightsbridge is a modern tower of glass and steel, - a stunning display of contemporary architectural techniques.

What makes Hyde Park so special?

A sprawling green oasis in the heart of a modern city, Hyde Park allows Londoners the opportunity to enjoy a slower pace of life in natural surroundings. The historic park is one of London’s most treasured features, and living nearby gives residents the chance to treat this huge expanse of historic parkland as if it were their very own garden - but without responsibility for the upkeep.
