  • St John's Wood Historical Facts

    The area was originally within the Great Middlesex Forest and the property of the Knights of St John of Jerusalem.

    St John's Wood property development began in the early nineteenth century and led the way with villa-style housing rather than the terraced properties that had been popular in the rest of London. This offered a greater sense of space and while some higher density redevelopment has taken place, it is still a highly desirable district to live in.
