St. Johns Wood is a well established, highly desirable residential area named by the then owners, the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, in the 13th Century. The area was first developed in the early 19th Century unusually using large low density ‘Villa’ style houses rather than the traditional ‘terraces’. Many of these impressive villas or their later replacements can be seen in such exclusive streets as Avenue Road and Hamilton Terrace. As well as these grand villas the area now has a vast range of smaller family houses and purpose built apartment blocks.
The area retains a secluded and tranquil atmosphere having wide tree lined streets, the open spaces of Regents Park with London Zoo and the stunning views from Primrose Hill. It is also home to Lords Cricket Ground and the Abbey Road Studios along with a variety of shops in St. Johns Wood High Street.
It is dotted with numerous notable restaurants, cafes, coffee shops and public houses. Access to the City and West End is easy with excellent public transport connections provided by the Underground (Jubilee Line) and regular bus services.
