Regent’s Park has been property of the Crown ever since Henry VIII appropriated the land in the 16th century. Architect John Nash was commissioned by the Prince Regent in the early 19th century to design the spectacular and sweeping white-stucco terraces that line the area’s streets. The scheme is considered to be one of the finest examples of a garden suburb, and continues to be of influence today.
It is a neighbourhood with a vibrant multicultural community, which attracts highly affluent academics and celebrities, many of whom are drawn to the grand and desirable properties.
