St James's Property & Area
Home to many of the UK’s oldest and most exclusives clubs as well as St James’s Palace, the area falls within the borough of Westminster. Its location and proximity to attractive green spaces - Green Park lies to the west and St James’s Park to the south – make it a popular choice for those wishing to augment their property investment portfolio.
Local character and style
The architecture here is quite distinct from much of central London and includes many stone built properties with ornate period features. Most are large red brick Georgian and Victorian mansion blocks comprising serviced apartments and some smaller mews cottages. The area also features established shops, boutique banks and offices as well as some rare and special homes.
These include St James’s Square, Pall Mall, Carlton House Terrace and The Albany.
The area boasts some of the longest established shops in the country. Jermyn Street and St James’s Street offer traditional, exclusive shopping, with Piccadilly nearby. Major theatres are on the doorstep in Haymarket and Lower Regent Street as are the renowned Ritz and Browns hotels. St James’s is also famous for its private members’ clubs including Whites, Boodles, The RAC club, The Reform and The Turf.
