BAYSWATER area guide


ARLA-registered Astons London is one of Bayswater’s premier estate agents, with a range of property for sale and to let in this diverse and bustling area.

Leafy cosmopolitan streets

Bayswater and Notting Hill are often spoken of as a collection of typically leafy streets, lavish with Victorian details and lending a high quality of life that is typical of the fashionable part of London. While Bayswater and Notting Hill may only be separated by an eight-minute stroll, the character of Bayswater is unique to the cosmopolitan enclave. With streets that hug the border of London’s iconic Hyde Park, Bayswater is well placed for tourism and its diverse mix of residents. Like its neighbours, Bayswater boasts grand 19th Century stucco buildings and fine residential squares.

Modern and historic attractions

Tourist attractions in Bayswater range from the Royal Albert Hall, Marble Arch and the plush Porchester Hall to the angular Subway Gallery and Speaker’s Corner’s quirky free-speech soapbox on the corner of Cumberland Gate and Park Lane; Bayswater caters to all tastes. Close by are the fine shopping streets of Kensington and Portobello Road Market. Top attractions in Notting Hill Gate and Westminster are easily accessible on a tube from Bayswater Underground Station.

A variety of property – and prices

Due to large swathes of Second World War bomb damage in east Bayswater, a patchwork of modern apartment blocks and original Victorian property has emerged, as well as a varied range of buyers and sellers. Bayswater’s mix of cultures includes American, Greek and Brazilian families residing in Bayswater’s large stock of converted flats. Over decades of dramatic price increases in other parts of the capital, parts of the Bayswater property market have remained a more affordable west London alternative and with many stucco buildings having been converted to suit modern living. One-bedroom residences are generally marketed from around £600,000, increasing to £1.5 to £2 million for a prime-location property. As properties with outdoor space are a rare commodity among the many house conversions, Bayswater’s numerous garden squares provide a leafy retreat for many residents.

A great investment opportunity

The once overlooked W2 property market is tipped for even greater success with the opening of Crossrail, and the improved transport links in the area will increase its desirability. If you are looking to become a landlord in the Bayswater area, Astons London can help you find the right property at the right price.

Our director, Antony DiLieto, tells us why Bayswater has been earmarked as an integral property hotspot this year, at OnTheMarket.com.
