If you are looking for property in central London, there are several prime property areas such as Bayswater, Hyde Park and Lancaster Gate. Lancaster Gate is a charming and stunning locality in the Bayswater district and is also an entrance to Kensington Gardens – one of the Royal Parks of London which lies immediately to the west of Hyde Park.
Lancaster Gate is considered to be one of the grandest 19th century housing schemes in central London and is also one of England’s most densely populated areas. Its beautiful 19th century terraced buildings designed by Sancton Wood are now used as offices, embassies, hotels and houses. The name Lancaster Gate itself is in honour of Queen Victoria, who was also the Duchess of Lancaster in the 19th century.
Lancaster Gate is basically a street with a pair of long terraces of buildings which have commanding views of Kensington Gardens. In between the terraces is a wide gap, which opens into a square which spreads northward to the tower of the former Christ Church. The body of the church was demolished in 1978; however its grand spire is now attached to an ecclesiastical looking block of apartments. The terraces are stuccoed and feature English Baroque details and French touches. The west of Lancaster Gate has undergone reconstruction and consists mainly of offices whereas the east side consists of stucco houses and mews. Lancaster Gate has been described as Bayswater’s most ambitious and successful achievement in terms of architecture – a prime reason why many people are looking for properties for sale in Lancaster Gate.
