Being in close proximity to one of London’s elite schools is a key criterion for many property buyers and we often advise our clients which of our properties offer the most convenient access to London’s top educational institutions. Whether you are looking to rent or buy, Harrods Estates has a number of properties available that are within easy reach of top schools. These include Hill House, Eaton Square Schools and even Thomas’s London Day School, which received the International School Award from 2016 – 2019 in recognition of its commitment to integrating international activities across the curriculum and enhancing the multicultural dimension of the school.

The majority of high-end schools are located in Chelsea and South Kensington, such as award-winning Marlborough Primary School, Kensington and Chelsea College and Falkner House School, established in 1954. Harrods Estates currently has a number of properties in these areas as for example Cheniston Gardens, a fabulous Grade II listed property in Kensington. On the market for £11million, this beautiful house has six en-suite double bedrooms, original features such as stained-glass windows and brick work as well as a state-of-the-art, fully fitted kitchen.

Located in the heart of South Kensington is another beautiful, spacious six-bedroom family home on Thurloe Place, spread over five floors, offering spacious accommodation and a large private garden. The property is on the market to buy for £7million or to rent for £7,500 per week and is only a seven-minute walk from Queen’s Gate School. Families looking for fewer rooms, may find our property at Rutland Gate an attractive alternative. The stunning two-bedroom apartment boasts newly designed interiors with two bathrooms and a spacious living area. It is located just five minutes’ walk from Hyde Park and an approximate 10-minute walk to Hill House Junior school.

Mayfair, one of the most affluent areas in London which is home to Eaton Square, a nursery, prep and senior school that is available to children up to 18 years old. The area is full of elegant Georgian townhouses and historic buildings. This includes our stunning Park Lane property - a very spacious lateral four-bedroom apartment, which is on the market for £11.7million and stands out due to its prime location close to Hyde Park, Michelin-starred restaurants and lots of high-end retail.

The historic building Hans Road, located in Knightsbridge and opposite the iconic Harrods store, has a beautiful three-bedroom apartment on the top floor. The property is a mere 5-minute walk from Knightsbridge School, which is co-educational and for children between the ages of 3 – 13. Residents at Hans Road benefit from an abundance of natural light flooding through the apartment, giving the high vaulted ceiling rooms an extremely spacious feel.

Mayfair

No London district is more famous for its high-end properties than Mayfair. This hugely wealthy district is known worldwide for its gorgeous Georgian houses, its exclusive boutiques and the fashionable lifestyle and amenities it offers its wealthy residents.

Mayfair is located in central London within the City of Westminster. Moving in a clockwise direction, Mayfair is bordered by Oxford Street, Hyde Park, Green Park and Piccadilly and Regent Street.

The desirability of Mayfair can be traced right back to medieval times, when the lively May Fair fete took place there, with music, entertainment, food and drink. Locals looked on its unfavourably, though, and the fete was moved to London’s East End.

The newly named Mayfair rapidly began to be known for its Georgian mansions, which date back to the 1700s when the area was heavily developed. The residents of these homes have included numerous prime ministers and other notable figures from the worlds of politics, business and the arts. Many of the homes are owned by the Rothschild and Grosvenor families, although many of the freeholds belong to the Crown.

The Effect of the War
Although mainly a residential area, Mayfair experienced some heavy attacks during the Second World War. As offices throughout the city were destroyed, many of Mayfair’s mansions were converted into workspaces and remained so for decades. Now, a considerable number have become prime residences again, though the area also remains a prestigious address for companies and organisations.

A Desirable Location
Mayfair is renowned as an expensive area to live and socialise. It is filled with exclusive shops, restaurants, art galleries and bars. Notable attractions include the tailors of Savile Row, the Gagosian Gallery and the Royal Institution, which is one of the UK’s best known institutes of science. There are also excellent spas and celebrated night-spots.

The area has excellent public transport and is very much favoured by people working in the financial district. It’s also quite possible to walk to the main central London destinations, through the beautiful expanses of Green Park. This is one of the greatest attractions for those considering buying an apartment or house within the Mayfair postcodes.

A magnificent development of new family houses on the Coombe Hill Private Estate adjacent to the open spaces of the Coombe Hill Golf Course. Each house sits on a plot of approximately 0.6 acres of land and benefits from the privacy of the Estate. Richmond Park and the prestigious Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Club are nearby, while Central London's West End is just eight miles away. These homes are in close proximity to some of the country’s leading independent schools, three of which are on the estate itself.

These newly built homes offer six to seven bedrooms plus separate staff quarters. Laurel Grove was awarded the WhatHouse ‘Best Luxury House’ award 2015 and Asquith House has now been completed. Both houses have been finished to an exacting specification by award winning developers, Q Developments.

With 11,000 -12,000sq ft (1,020 - 1,115sq m) of accommodation across four levels, residents and guests will arrive to a dramatic triple-height entrance. The specification includes:
