As with Ladbroke, the houses and apartments in Pembridge village exude clout and style. Those properties, lying close to the main artery of Notting Hill, have a more commercial feel but there are still pockets of real opportunity in the occasional cul-de-sac such as Linden Gardens and Mews and Clanricarde Gardens set amongst some of the smartest streets in Notting Hill, like Dawson Place, lined with substantial stucco family houses.
For those houses surrounding Pembridge Square Gardens, with their grand, high ceilinged drawing rooms, there is a quiet, subdued atmosphere of calm, even with the Wetherby School and other children during the day. With its royal connections, Wetherby is the school to which locals aspire for their children. Residents include a mix of ambassadorial staff, as well as a more varied social mix in the apartments.
There is, too, a diversity of architectural styles prevalent throughout this village which intrigues the eye. Pembridge Crescent and Square, Dawson Place, tree-lined, large detached and terraced family homes, this is the smart heart of Notting Hill, the area has come a long way since George Orwell was a resident of 22 Portobello Road. The bustle of Notting Hill Gate and Portobello, the cafes and shops of Westbourne Grove are a very easy walk away from this peaceful, elegant enclave. And one final word – just up the road is probably the best Italian restaurant in London, Assaggi, where the competition for tables is intense.
Defined by Notting Hill Gate, Pembridge and Chepstow Villas and Chepstow Place, this Village is a simple walk to everything you need, everywhere you might want to go with links to world leading communication nodes. Historically, the larger properties close to Notting Hill Gate have been used as hotels, which, steadily now are being returned to smart residential houses and apartments.
