It may sound like a fictional middle-European kingdom, but as you probably know Fitzrovia is an area of London. Taking its name from the old Fitzroy Tavern on Charlotte Street, it became popular with artists and writers, who turned it into something of a creative centre in the 1920s. The name Fitzrovia became widely used between the wars but wasn’t officially recognised until 1994, when it appeared on Ordnance Survey maps for the first time.
So how can estate agents in Fitzrovia help you find your perfect property? The area of Fitzrovia is split between two London boroughs – the City of Westminster and Camden and therefore takes in a big part of London’s commercial centre, bounded as it is by Euston Road, Oxford Street, Gower Street and Great Portland Street. It also includes the iconic BT Tower. This means that it’s a thriving business district with in excess of 50,000 people working there. However, don’t write it off as purely about commerce – it has more than 6,000 residents with new developments springing up all the time.
The area offers a unique blend of old and new, spanning from elegant Georgian town houses, to period mansion blocks and ultra-modern apartments and our Estate Agents in Fitzrovia have the knowledge and experience to help you find that perfect property.
There is a strong lettings market too, making the area a popular choice for property investors and renters alike. It’s easy to understand the area’s appeal: five tube stations make travel to other parts of the city easy, and there is an array of award winning restaurants and coffee specialist cafes – Goodge Street has become the street of the ‘pop-up’ restaurant. If you have a family, you’ll find a good choice of schools and open spaces,
Fitzrovia is an attractive residential area, and being part of the West End which is the largest central business district in the UK, it is popular with many businesses looking for a convenient and prestigious central London location, and their employees who are looking for an easy commute!
