"South of the train and tube stations, West End Lane has less of a villagey feel ." OMG.. do you even know West Hampstead? The village is close knit that way. You could walk across the lane without village like gossip. Checkout West Hampstead Mews as that is where you find the Former Decca Studios. All south of the stations around St James Parish.
Streets of London: West End Lane, NW6
South of the train and tube stations, West End Lane has less of a villagey feel – largely because there are fewer shops. However, there is plenty of housing, which ranges from purpose-built postwar apartment blocks and mansion flats to large, detached Victorian houses, which, like the houses up the road, were converted into flats in the 1960s and ’70s. The conversion flats here are relatively large; there are plenty of well-proportioned three-bed flats along this southern stretch and the offshoot roads towards South Hampstead.
The area might have already up-and-come, but purchasing property here is a safe investment. There are excellent, fast transport links to the West End and Docklands, it’s in Zone 2, and for those who don’t want to lose out on proximity to town, this is a fantastic area in which to be based.
