TO BUY TO LET
The luxury homes for rent in St James’s, London, are located in one of the most exclusive locations in the world.
It was once home to the very wealthiest members of the British aristocracy, and today residents can count royalty as their neighbours with the monarchy’s residences of Buckingham Palace, St James’s Palace and Clarence House within its boundaries. Much of St James’s property belongs to the Crown Estate, but most of the old palaces and mansions now host corporate headquarters and grand hotels rather than old aristocracy.
The big attraction of this area is the stunning green space of St James’s’ Park, which is one of the most beautiful of the capital’s Royal parks. It has a lake, landscaped gardens bandstand, a lovely restaurant and an abundance of wildlife including the famous pelicans. Residents find it a peaceful place to go running, along with nearby Green Park. The bridge in the middle of the lake offers one of London’s finest views with Buckingham Palace on one side, and the palaces of Whitehall on the other.
A defining aspect of St James’s is its distinctive concentration of gentlemen’s clubs along St James’s Street, St James’s Square and Pall Mall. These buildings are where business moguls, newspaper editors, CEOs and investment bankers drink brandy and make insider deals. There are a wealth of exclusive boutiques, and specialist merchants to cater for locals’ expensive tastes on Jermyn Street and the surrounding streets.
Since the prestigious SW1 postcode is mostly commercial, St James’s luxury property for rent is in high demand at all times due to its relative scarcity. Located at the heart of Zone 1, nearby stations include Green Park and Piccadilly Circus, as well as the mainline station of Charing Cross.
