NOTTING HILL PROPERTY – Revolving around two areas – one either lives on the Ladbroke Grove side or the Bayswater side, which has historically been more affordable. Both feature gorgeous, large Victorian houses, many painted in startling colours & all offering wonderful but pricey places to live. There are lots of fantastic conversions – particularly in flat-hungry areas near Bayswater. Flats here command high prices but many houses here are still single properties & are extremely desirable. Standards of fitting & decor can generally be expected to be very high indeed.
