Kensington remains the location of choice for the rich and powerful, just as the Victorians intended it.

With much of the Royal Borough listed and with conservation groups keeping guard, there are few opportunities to squeeze in modern homes. However, resourceful developers are still managing to unlock sites.


The development is close to Kensington Palace

Vicarage Gate House is a scheme of 13 lateral apartments in the sought-after Cherry Tree conservation area close to Kensington Palace. Designed by leading architect  Eric Parry, these light-filled homes of up to 5,209sq ft have  full-height windows and big terraces looking over private courtyard gardens. 

Residents get 24-hour concierge services, on-site gym and parking. Prices from £6 million. Call Savills  on 020 7016 3860.
