Queens Park is fast becoming one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in London, a place where bohemium ambience meets a luxurious lifestyle. Queen’s Park is a relatively small area, bound by Maida Vale, Kensal Rise, West Hampstead and Ladbroke Grove; and only 3.9 miles northwest of Oxford Circus. The area is centred by a 30 acres park, opened in 1887, and named in honour of Queen Victoria. The quintessential Queen’s Park homes vary from Late Victorian and Edwardian semi-detached and terraces houses, substantial detached Victorian homes and beautiful conversion apartments; however, many residents have built contemporary modern structures.
Houses prices in Queens Park vary in range, dependant on the location and the neighbouring area. House prices range from £175,000 to £2,900,000, with the average apartment price standing at £582,529, compared to the average house price of £1,312,492. House prices have been on the increase since the ’90s, and last year saw an average sold price 15.33% higher than the previous year. Interest for property in the area is still at an all-time high and the demand for housing is being met by the construction of new developments. Fortunately, there is always houses for rent in Queens Park so you can find affordable housing for yourself and the family.
Queen’s Park has become a magnet for accomplished individuals, flourishing artists and wealthy free-spirited characters; the area is full to the brim with delightful families. Most of the residents are in their 30’s and the median age is 37. Just over half the residents are married, and the second-largest demographic is married with children, and nearly 11 per cent are single.
The park was laid out in 1887 in a traditional late Victorian park style, designed with a more natural style of gardening and a far cry from the parterres and geometry of earlier Victorian gardens. Designed without any straight, Queen’s Park makes extensive use of bold tree planting and shrubberies with natural outlines and large open areas of lawn for recreation and sport.
The landmark of the park is its bandstand, which was completed in 1887, and today hosts many spectacular events, summer is celebrated with an outdoor cinema, and an autumnal Queen’s Park Day ends the summer in style with a traditional English Fete.
Facilities in the park include six all-weather tennis courts, a pitch-and-putt course, an ornamental quiet garden, a children’s playground with paddling pool, a children’s animal farm and a café.

I couldn't have been happier with the service provided by Braithwait in helping me find a new rental property. The Lettings Manager, Luke, went above and beyond in meeting my needs and exceeding my expectations.
