Outwardly Observatory Gardens appears unaltered from Victorian times although appearances can be deceptive. During World War II a German bomber crashed landed on Campden Hill Road at the junction with Observatory Gardens.
The crew escaped and were promptly arrested. Observatory Gardens suffered serious damage and soon became very dilapidated. In the mid 1990s local residents watched the demolition of the entire mansion block with the exception of the façade.

Behind the fully restored façade, this flat along with its neighbours were constructed. These luxury apartments with underground parking have been highly sought after ever since.

Why we love... Kensington

Kensington portrays regal elegance.  Old-world buildings seamlessly blend with the glass windows of artisanal shops, bakeries and international consulates, lending the neighbourhood an air of polished refinement and perfect finishing.

Its opulence doesn’t detract from the neighbourhood’s inviting nature and history – Kensington Gardens, Kensington Palace, and the area’s museums are frequented by locals and visitors alike.
