KENSINGTON PROPERTY – Extraordinary! In Kensington itself the speciality is the tall, elegant Victorian terraced townhouse & mansion block. Massive apartments can easily house families, whilst the houses are out of this world. If you’re looking nearby to Holland Park or to Kensington Gardens, you have to add substantial amounts to already large price tags. All houses around here tend to be extremely fine and it’s hard to find them on the market for long.
