Central London is synonymous with listed buildings and heritage architecture that is beloved by people the world over but when it comes to property investment attitudes, there's a whole continent that eschews our character dwellings in favour of all things shiny and new.
The advantages of buying period properties, however, are now being pushed to those in Asia by one property finder and investment fund, London Central Portfolio.
We agree that due to their period nature and limited stock, historic properties are always in short supply - it's not as if you can flood the market with new 19th century mews homes or 18th century townhouses.

It is wonderful to see Notting Hill, along with Bayswater, Westbourne Grove, Pimlico, Westminster and Victoria, tipped as an emerging prime Central London areas ripe for heritage property investment. As an estate agent specialising in the sale of historic mews houses and other hidden property gems, we would be delighted to assist any buyer or tenant interested London's historic homes.
