As a location, Notting Hill needs little introduction. It is one of West London's most fashionable districts, full of stylish period conversions and two to three bedroom apartments.

Many residents remain from 60 years ago when the area was more famous as a slum, while dynamic young professionals still flock to the area for the cafe culture. Hedge fund managers and captains of industry love the large period houses.

Hyde Park and Holland Park - the largest park in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea - are hugely popular with residents and visitors alike, while Portobello Road plays host to one of the world's most famous street markets. The communal gardens of Notting Hill - as featured in the movie - offer tranquil seclusion for residents lucky enough to live in properties bordering them.

Notting Hill also boasts fantastic transport links, making it the perfect location for modern working professionals. Underground stations can be found in Notting Hill Gate, Holland Park, Bayswater, Queensway and Westbourne Park, making it easy to reach the rest of London, while the nearby A4 and A40 provide links to the motorway network. London Paddington is only a five-minute drive away and offers access to the Heathrow Express.

With its excellent range of local schools, Notting Hill is also popular with families. The likes of Colville Primary School, Chepstow House School, Wetherby School and Southbank International School can all be found within the district.
