“Not that convenient but still a nice area to live”
he area being more high end is more expensive but the up side is it feels more safe.
The area being more high end is more expensive but the up side is it feels more safe. During the night, the streets are well lit and security is less of an issue. Pets would be a challenge as the streets are quite busy but by going to the right places nearby like Battersea Park, Holland Park, Hyde park, it is totally possible.
The buses are well connected and the tube stations are a 15 minute walk to either Gloucester road, South Kensington or Sloane Square. The buses are very regular however they do get stuck in traffic so sometimes it is faster to walk, especially during peak travel times. There is a great bus service to Piccadilly Circus which makes it very easy to get into central London
A variety of people live on our street, personally I live in an apartment and some are owners and some are renters. There hasn't been any instances of anti social behaviour but sometimes the traffic noise can get quite loud, especially if someone has removed the muffler, which is surprisingly common.
Living in SW3, everything is more on the pricey end, however by shopping wisely and going a bit further than Kings Road or South Kensington and going towards Earls court, things can be get cheaper. The shops towards Sloane Square are more high end and boutique and niche, as one would expect from that area. The streets are very nice and clean and the open spaces are very comfortable. The only down side is the traffic that is pretty bad. A wide range of supermarkets are also available, from Sainsbury's to Coop, all within an easy 5 minute walk. Transport is usually by bus and sometimes by tube. The buses are well connected and you can even take a bus to the nearest tube station if you are feeling lazy. The three museums in South Kensington are only 15 minutes away and you will find a few Imperial students in this area, due to the proximity to the world class university. Battersea park is a nice place to have a walk as well.
The road is very beautiful, with roads of Victorian terraces in well kept condition
I most like the architecture of the area - the roads are full of beautiful, well kept (for the most part) houses which make walking the surrounding streets an overall positive experience. Because the area is quite upmarket, there is less antisocial behaviour, so it would be safe for children. There is Brompton Cemetery nearby which would be good for pets to roam around in, so that is also a positive. On the whole, the area comes across as nice and quite upmarket, but with some individual houses in need of regeneration and an uplift.
This is arguably a well connected area for transport, with Earl's Court being on the District Line and Piccadilly Line, so there are direct links to London. There are bus stops within a 5 mins walk and the tube is within 15 mins. There is also West Brompton for overground within 15 mins too. There are no particular issues with transport, although Earl's Court can get particularly busy around rush hour, being the last station on the District line before it branches.
The road is very beautiful, with roads of Victorian terraces in well kept condition, and it looks especially nice with the light shining off the white paintwork. It is, however, near a main road so there can be some traffic noise from time to time from the main road, or people using the road as a cut through. Parking is residents only, except for 4 spaces at the end of the road, so without a permit it can be an issue - traffic wardens can often be seen giving tickets out too. The occupants of the road can be split into two categories: students (mostly) renting out flats which are less well kept, and adult families / elderly people living in the nicer, more well kept houses. This provides a weird divide, however the owners are very tolerant of the renters on the whole. Bin collection is always twice a week which on the whole is good, however there is a tendency for the pavements to be left slightly messy after the collection by the collectors.
There are an absolute abundance of supermarkets within 20 mins walk - including 2 Sainsbury's and 3 Tesco's. The best of these would be the large Tesco on Cromwell Road which has really good, cheap vegetables, and the Sainsbury's at Fulham Broadway isn't bad either. It's 15 mins from Fulham Broadway, and here there's lots of restaurants - including Wagamama, Thai Square and a Wetherspoons - to choose from, and also bars - Kona Kai looks particularly nice. There are plenty of cafes both towards South Kensington and Fulham, including an array of Costas, Prets and Starbucks, but also more independent cafes - St Anna and the Chelsea Creperie are both nice. There are no particular amenities missing.
Not that convenient but still a nice area to live
I think that this particular has most things you need but the fact that you have to travel outwards a bit to reach these areas reduce the value of convenience.
For this specific area, I believe there is a lack of transportation. This is because it takes a while to get to the closest bus stop and as for the Underground station, the closest is South Kensington Station which is actually about 20 minutes away. Better off getting a bicycle if you can.
It is a very clean area to live in, there are not many people who litter within the area. The only thing I would say this area is lacking is shops such as clothes and groceries.
A church is very close to the within the local area, and there are a few restaurants. However, you have to travel outwards to get to the restaurants. The people around the area are like one big community, very warm and welcoming.
Love the shops

Generally safe, plenty for children as so close to Battersea park.
