Located directly north of Paddington, to the west of St Johns Wood and to the South and East of Kilburn, Maida Vale has a range of properties on offer, even though the area is well known for wide roads and large mansion-style flats. With the Grand Union Canal offering picturesque views, this area is well known as Little Venice and if you are keen to enjoy life in one of the idyllic parts of London, Maida Vale has everything you could look for.

There has been a high level of redemption and regeneration for the area, and it has been transformed from its post-war reputation. In the 1970s, there was a movement to improve the style and reputation of Maida Vale, and current residents are reaping the benefits.

Current Property Options

Given that over 85% of the property options in Maida Vale are flats, either located in mansion blocks or in recent conversions, you will find that there plenty of opportunities to find property in Maida Vale if you are starting off or making a move up the property ladder. If you are looking to move to a large substantial home, you may find the Maida Vale options more limited options, but there is no doubt properties here for everyone; Maida Vale is a stunning area with plenty of options for buyers for any particular type of property.

Postcode

The Maida Vale area is predominantly in W9 but there is a small section, just south of the Canal and at the west of Edgware Road that lies within Bayswater territory, W2.

Best streets in Maida Vale

This may be a contentious issue and different people will always have a different opinion on what constitutes “Best Street” but plenty of people love Maida Avenue and Blomfield Road, which can be found on either side of the canal. Other popular streets include Warwick Avenue (we are unable to confirm if Duffy has finally reached the street), Randolph Crescent and Randolph Road, with stunning communal gardens being located between Warrington Crescent and Randolph Crescent and between Warwick Avenue and Randolph Road.

Are there any up and coming areas in Maida Vale?

It is usually of benefit to look into areas that are on the rise in an area and Maida Hill, which lies to the west of Marylands Road, is an area with great potential for growth. It may be slightly rougher around the edges than what you would normally associate with Maida Vale, but for people looking to move in an upwards fashion, this is exactly the sort of area you should be looking for.

Who buys property in Maida Vale?

The proximity of a BBC recording studio adds a touch of cool to the local area and famous residents in the area have included Kate Moss, Paul Weller, Ozzy Osbourne and Mary Portas.

King Solomon Academy has been classed as outstanding by Ofsted and there are a number of other local schools which offer a range of educational focus and opportunities.
