Earls Court is a real mixture of extreme wealth and very affordable housing. It's a cool, lively place to live, a very varied and energetic location, with a large variety of properties.
Earls Court has always has a slightly mixed feel to it, one of establishment mixed with the new. In the 20th century it became a great base for incoming Australians and New Zealanders, but the Kangaroo Alley culture still pervades only in the sense that the area feels a bit down at heel at times. In reality, the short-stay places have been largely replaced by very desirable flats, and many of the properties that were hastily cut up into conversions during the 20th Century have been remade into their original, beautiful family home plans.
Of course Earls Court itself, the events and conference arena, merely provides a backdrop - as well as lifeblood for the modern hotels in the area. Around it is a huge array of properties, with some calm streets filled with Victorian terraced properties off the main drags of the area. Another mainstay of the area's property market are mansion blocks - large, impressive and beautifully maintained redbrick blocks for the most part - which provide excellent and spacious apartments. And again despite the area's former slightly shabby reputation, the eastern end of Earls Court contains some of the highest priced properties in London, particularly the magnificent stucco squares and properties like the Boltons, which are fantastically desirable and sought after places to live.
Amenities of Earls Court include great local selective schools and some excellent eateries, as well as a huge variety of cafes and restaurants catering to the crowds who arrive for the events at the conference centre itself. There are few large green spaces, but this is a 24-7 place, and its amenities are those of a thriving, upwardly mobile inner city area, which still manages to combine its wealth with the student chic of days gone past.
