Maida Vale Overview
W9. A magnificent entirely residential central London area bordering Marylebone, St John’s Wood, Paddington and Bayswater. This sought after London district has large, elegant villas and houses dating back to the middle 19 century most of which are preserved and maintained to the enviably high standard.
A nice display of attractive houses leads to the pool of Little Venice. This wide stretch of the Regent’s Canal is where many colourful narrow houseboats find sanctuary during winter and where they mark the end of it in a unique English Waterway Community’s fashion: with a large procession, a pageant of boats parading along the Canal at the beginning of May marking the start of London’s summer boating season. A unique, very colourful celebration and festival for all ages!
Grand family houses with French doors and balconies opening out to private front gardens and large landscaped backyards; wide mature tree lined avenues; charming artisan shops, well established restaurants and the gentle flow of canal water that cuts through the area - are factors attracting visitors and property investors to Maida Vale and Little Venice. Warwick Avenue, Maida Vale, Randolph Avenue, Bloomfield Road, Elgin Avenue are the most attractive addresses in the area.
Super convenient for Central London, the district is close to newly developed, sleek and modern Paddington Basin district which gives the area a rail access to the Heathrow airport and the Midlands.
