Euroterra Capital is known as ‘London’s Premier Garden Square Developer and Asset Manager’ with all of its properties sitting close to the capital’s prestigious Royal Parks.
Being within walking distance to over nine tube stations, as well as having access to both the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) and the Heathrow express from Paddington Station, makes W2 one of the best connected postcodes across London.
Hyde Park is London’s largest and finest green space and one of the city’s eight Royal Parks, covering 350 acres. At its epicentre is The Serpentine Lake, home to a number of historic monuments, including the Princess of Wales’ Memorial Fountain. An icon of London’s rich heritage, Hyde Park stands out for its vibrant history, expansive open spaces and stunning Victorian architecture.
Henry VIII acquired Hyde Park from the monks of Westminster Abbey in 1536. The infamous monarch and his court were often seen on their horses, thundering through the trees on the hunt for deer. Later Queen Caroline, wife of George II carried out extensive renovations and was responsible for the creation of The Serpentine Lake. However, it was the Victorians who truly made Hyde Park into the area we know today. One of the most important events to take place in Hyde Park was the Great Exhibition in 1851. A celebration of modernity and design, this had a powerful impact and resulted in the Victorians introducing the decorative flowerbeds, sculptures and fountains that can now be enjoyed across the park.
With a 200-year history, Hyde Park remains one of the most prestigious addresses in central London.
Hyde Park is surrounded by an abundance of large townhouses, period apartments and traditional mews homes that are characterised by Georgian and Victorian architecture; many of the grander townhouses are Grade II listed and white stucco fronted. Resided in by British Aristocracy for over 200 years, since constructed in the 1800’s under Queen Caroline’s rule, the homes here are special for their outlook over the Royal Park or views across London’s private garden squares, which are dotted around nearby Paddington, Kensington, Mayfair and Belgravia.
As well as an attractive aesthetic, the area offers residents easy access to a variety of quaint, boutique shops and cafes in the desirable retail quarter known as ‘Connaught Village’. Living in Hyde Park is not only a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of the Capital, but is well located for schools, the shopping amenities of the West End and has excellent bus, tube and railway links across all of London and the UK.
Hyde Park has been home to British Aristocracy, royalty, pioneers of literature, science and engineering and a number of famous faces over the years, including, Winston Churchill, Keira Knightley, Stella McCartney, and JM Barrie, author of Peter Pan.
Today, Hyde Park plays host to a number of prestigious live music events, festivals and ceremonies and people from all over the world mingle with locals to enjoy the beauty of its walking trails, cycle paths, sporting pursuits and nature in the city.
Of W2 Makes For
A Smart Investment
The historic area of W2 is the postcode district in West London incorporating areas of Paddington, Bayswater, Hyde Park, Westbourne Grove, Little Venice, Notting Hill and also sits within the prestigious boroughs of Westminster and Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. Over recent years, the area has received huge investment with significant infrastructure projects helping to modernise and regenerate the area, whilst keeping the historic charm and cultural importance of the locality.
The £182 million development of the iconic Whiteleys shopping centre is based around delivering an enhanced retail experience, a residential development and new leisure facilities, including a luxury Six Senses hotel and spa. It will restore Whiteleys once again to its rightful position at the heart of Bayswater. Alongside the plans for the building, Queensway itself will be rethought in order to become more pedestrian friendly and give it a new lease of life as a key London thoroughfare once again.
W2 is a dynamic and exciting
place to invest.
