Maida Vale: A convenient location for those seeking a quiet life

Maida Vale: A convenient location for those seeking a quiet lifeBackground

People looking for a flat to rent in an area in London that offers easy access to the city centre yet retains its own identity may find Maida Vale is the location that meets their requirements.

With the renowned attraction of Little Venice and plenty of green streets in the district, this could be regarded as one of the most relaxing, understated and classiest places to live in the capital.

Maida Vale is particularly residential and could be of interest to those who are seeking a quiet life away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Individuals choosing the area as the place to find a flat to rent are likely to discover a close-knit community, which has people from all walks of life as wealthy residents live in close proximity to those in council accommodation.

Property

Some of the most impressive mansion blocks in London can be found in Maida Vale, which are situated around the cluster of shops at the heart of the area.

While there are only a small number of houses to choose from in the neighbourhood, apart from in the Mews area, some of the managed housing blocks have communal gardens, whereas in others some people have access to a stretch of pretty grounds.

Tenants who wish to live somewhere that is slightly more active may find that Little Venice - located near Paddington - offers them the perfect setting, as there is a greater selection of pubs along its streets.

In addition, Warwick Avenue boasts some mansion blocks that are of an extremely high standard, with some of these situated along the canal that is one of the focal points of the district.

Prices for places to rent in Maida Vale vary depending on how many bedrooms are required, with a one-bed property costing an average of £325 a week or £1408 a month.

Those looking for an establishment with two bedrooms can find one for £260 a week, with an average home costing £468 a week, or £2028 a month.

Transport

Conveniently located near the city centre and positioned on the Bakerloo line, people living in Maida Vale benefit by having the rest of London within easy reach.

Paddington station is just two stops away on the Tube, which provides links to several other lines, including Hammersmith and City, Circle and District and overground services heading out London.

Bus services also run through the district and for people who require quick access to the M1, the A41 passes close to Maida Vale and allows for direct access to the motorway.

Local Amenities

Despite having a reputation as a quiet and peaceful location, there is still plenty for residents to see and do in and around the district.

A fine parade of shops can be found in the centre of then area, while Little Venice caters for the crowd of people who are drawn towards the canal by providing them with plenty of places to eat and drink.

For those who are passionate about their cricket, Lords cricket ground is not too far away, while Wembley Stadium can be accessed via the Tube.

The famous Abbey Road Studios are also located nearby, which must surely be the place where all music lovers living in Maida Vale head to in order to pay homage to some of the musical greats who have recorded hits there.

Two of the best known parks in London - Hyde Park and Regent's Park - are close by, with individuals heading to the latter able to spend time on the boating lake.
