Little Venice is a quiet, leafy, residential pocket between Paddington and Maida Vale that surrounds the canals. The area has lovely walks or runs along the canals, river boat cafes and picturesque scenery.
Little Venice is minutes from great transport links in every direction - Warwick Avenue, Royal Oak and Paddington. Paddington has a real mixture of properties; grand Georgian buildings around Hyde Park, to the new build developments in the basin with bars, shops and restaurants. Connaught Village has a number of boutiques, bars and cafes and the area has some impressive communal gardens squares for residents.
Tenants can be anyone from students to young professionals and high ranking corporates working for blue chip companies to families looking to stay for the long term.

Little Venice does not set out to dazzle. Its best architecture is elegant but discreet: 19th-century stuccoed villas, inspired by the architecture of John Nash, sit quietly on leafy boulevards, concealing enclosed communal gardens. Houses can fetch up to £15m, far less than a Nash creation overlooking Regent’s Park, a mile-and-a-half to the east. On Clifton Road, just up from Warwick Avenue Tube station, a few businesses provide certain essentials: organic coffee, sourdough bread and posh ready meals. Agents say the neighbourhood is favoured by writers, entertainers and executives who want a quiet life. The lack of excitement may help explain why the area’s property market has been overlooked given its housing stock, proximity to central London and transport links.
