Kensal or North Notting Hill as it is affectionally becoming known as is increasingly popular with residents moving fromPortobello, Notting Hill, Ladbroke Grove, Kensington, Maida Vale and Queens Park. All seeking properties which offer better value for money.
The area has some lovely Edwardian and Victorian properties with many original character features. Kensal Green has a grouping of Georgian properties, the earliest being about 1820 but the majority dating back from the opening of the Cemetary (1832) which lies opposite. In the last decade we have seen the opening up of some new Gastro Pubs (Paradise, The Chamberlayne, William IV and the latest refurbishment of The Island further strengthens this areas resolved to set the pace of its well heeled neighbours.
Another great addition is the Lexi Cinema on Chamberlayne Road, a great “Arthouse Cinema venue” the UK’s first social enterprise independent boutique digital cinema.
Kensal Rise and Kensal Green both have excellent rail links to Euston, Richmond, Kensington and Canada Water on the Overground.
Kensal is within walking distance of King Edwards Park and is in close proximity of the open spaces of Queens Park along with the cafes, bars and individual shops.
