Property Investment Guide - Kensington, London
Kensington has everything that a discerning tenant seeking rental accommodation could wish for. Cultured visitors love the palaces and large homes while pleasure seekers are attracted to the high-end restaurants, museums and picturesque parks.
Discerning Londoners from all walks of life are to be found in the main shopping thoroughfare known as Kensington High Street which starts at the art-deco monolith of the Barkers building and ends with the lush elegance of Holland Park. High Street Kensington contains many fashionable retail outlets and is adjacent to Kensington Church Street which alone is home to over 60 quality antique dealers offering one of the largest selections of Art and Antiques in London. Here you will find amongst other treasures, oriental ceramics, silver, paintings and 20th century decorative arts.
However, it is in the side streets that one truly discovers the soul of Kensington. Immaculate squares are fringed with lovingly preserved terraces, bordered by ornate railings that date back to the nineteenth century. Mansion blocks here are works of art in themselves, such is the beauty, elegance and sheer variety of historical styles on show. Opulent town houses, grand mansions converted into modern rental apartments and attractive cobblestone mews almost sell themselves and will certainly be high on the must-see list of any wealthy family, corporate professional or expatriate.
Interiors tend to be of the highest quality and are shown off by the generous amount of natural light that the large windows let in. Wood floors and all the latest kitchen appliances are options that any prospective landlord would be wise to consider as they enable any property to be let quickly and ensure a premium return on the investment.

The location of Kensington could hardly be bettered. Separated from the West End jostle by Hyde Park and from the more commercialised Earl's Court by Holland Park, it remains accessible through a Tube station that is situated on the Underground Circle line. Residents can reach the main overground rail hubs of Paddington, St Pancras, Liverpool Street and Victoria within minutes and hence the express links to all London's international airports.
