Maida Vale and Little Venice: renting guide

The houses in Maida Vale are popular with City professionals and sharers, while the larger flats with access to communal gardens are rented by young families.

£350 a week: for this one-bedroom flat on the first floor of a period conversion in Shirland Road, Maida Vale
Louise O’Driscoll, lettings manager at the local branch of Knight Frank, says in Maida Vale the houses are popular with City professionals and the mansion flats attract professional sharers and some of the larger flats, especially those with access to communal gardens, are rented to young families.

One-bedroom flats start at around £350 a week; two-bedroom flats from £425 a week and three-bedroom flats start from around £575 a week.

Such is the shortage of houses in Little Venice that people looking for houses to buy are often forced to rent while they wait. O’Driscoll has recently rented a white stucco house on Clifton Gardens for a mind-bending £5,300 a week.
