History and background.
The district originally sprang up on the outskirts of land belonging by the 19th century mansion called Holland House. Set in its own parkland it was mainly rural, until selling off some of its land to developers. The creation of the Holland Park region took its name from that original house and grew into what was mostly a middle class development. What we have today, is an area of largely impressive Victorian town houses and something of an affluent area. An achievement that has Holland Park listed as one of the most expensive residential city districts in the world. Houses sometimes go on sale for amounts in excess of £1o million although the average house price is around £2 million (researched Dec 2014). During the 1940’s the original house in the park was devastated by bombing and although little more than ruin, it remains a feature in the park. Probably London’s most peaceful of city park lands. Holland Park Tube station was first opened on the 30 July 1900 and refurbished in the 1990’s.
