Kirsty Sugden, Sales Director at Dexters Westminster, talks us through the exciting regeneration of Victoria and what it means for the local area: "Victoria is in the middle of an exciting period of transformation; every month we are seeing buildings transformed by innovative architects, and new shops and cafes opening up. We have eagerly awaited the completion of the new Restaurant Quarter under the Nova building, and the wait is almost over. With new restaurants opening here every week, Victoria is already becoming a hot target for foodies in London.
"With its own Curzon Cinema and the St James’s Theatre (which has recently been bought by Andrew Lloyd Webber), Victoria is emerging as a destination in its own right and is fast becoming a stylish place to work, live, shop and socialise.
"Spectacular residential space combined with the best in contemporary office space is attracting top brands such as Burberry and Tom Ford. By contrast, tucked away behind Victoria Street’s contemporary structures are secluded enclaves of eighteenth century terraced houses (one such we have for sale is the spectacular 28 Queen Anne’s Gate - once owned by Lord Haldane) and surrounding Westminster Cathedral are a host of beautiful period red-brick mansion blocks dating from the Victorian and Edwardian eras when the coming of the railways bolstered the very first speculative developments of what were then considered very modern apartment buildings!
"Continuing to provide sought-after accommodation today, these properties have a wealth of period features, including high ceilings with plaster decoration, fireplaces and cornicing."
