What is Earl's Court like?
Earl's Court used to be a rural area with green fields and market gardens. It wasn’t until the 19th Century that the area was developed in to the prime gardens squares, with Victorian red brick and white stucco fronted properties.
The multicultural nature of the area has attracted foreign investment, which has helped drive the area. The area continues to be moving forward with the 21st Century, as the impressive Earl's Court Development has begun and will continue to be a major attraction for people to live and invest in.
Property in Earl's Court
The area has a range of properties throughout the district, ranging from studio accommodation and large lateral spaces, to quieter mews properties.
There are traditional garden squares surrounded by semi-detached, and terraced houses, or flats and maisonettes. Throughout the area, Earl's Court encapsulates all that you would expect from London living, giving a balance of the more traditional period conversions, as well as modern developments such as at Lillie Square, which is part of the ongoing Earl's Court Development.

Earl's Court Development
Earl's Court is moving with the times, with its developers, Capco and the Kwok family, who are looking to create “four urban villages and a high street”, will not only include modern accommodation, but also elegant shops, cafes and restaurants. The first part of the development, Lillie Square, is due to be ready at the end of 2016.
Earl's Court is extremely well connected for local transport and further afield. The tube station is the only connection on the District line that can go North, East, South and West, with great connections from the Piccadilly line, too. The Overground service gives another transport link to other areas of London, and connects to Imperial Wharf and Clapham Junction. There are numerous bus routes, taking you to Kensington, Notting Hill, Chelsea, Knightsbridge, Victoria, Ealing and Chiswick to name a few.
