Renting & buying Property in Maida Vale & Little Venice

Maida Vale is a largely residential area made up of the northern part of Paddington, is west of St John’s Wood and forms part of the great city of Westminster. Buying or renting in Maida Vale means you’re not only in an extremely well thought of and affluent area, but are surrounded by many large and well-kept Edwardian and late Victoria mansion flats.

In 1806 the British fought a battle in Maida, Italy and a pub then opened on the Edgware Road called the Hero of Maida, the name caught on and Maida Vale & Little Venice were born.

Development of the area began in the 1840’s and beautiful stucco fronted houses along side Victorian properties, grand mansion blocks, and even now house boats all combine to create a vibrant and cosmopolitan neighborhood well served with bars, restaurants, and specialist shops, parks and schools.
The area also benefits from wonderful period mansions blocks featuring grand flats with a hidden secret to most. They have huge communal gardens that are a hidden treasure and a big selling point. Communities and friends and made here:
