Kensington Report September 2017
About the report
Kensington is an assorted mixture of old and new and this is currently reflected in its housing market. Established period housing contrasts with the new development that is taking place on the western fringes of the borough. Pricing remains highest in established streets, but new development at lower price points is proving popular with buyers and renters.
Our report highlights the following points:
• High-end housing is the defining characteristic of Kensington where pricing can challenge £5,000 psf in some prime locations
• Small-scale development is taking place in the eastern enclaves of Kensington where pricing is highest
• The western fringes of Kensington, along Warwick Road and at Earl’s Court, are witnessing a greater volume of new and exciting developments
