Holland Villas Road is a wide tree-lined avenue which runs between Upper Addison Gardens and the junction of Addison Crescent and Holland Road.

No addresses have so far been added to Holland Villas Road, W14

It is considered one of the most desirable addresses in Holland Park.

The buildings consist mainly of large brick detached villas – some are absolutely enormous. Most have front gardens with small driveways and high security gates. Some even have their own swimming pools. At the north end is a modern block of flats called Fitzclarence House. There is also Addisland Court, an 8-storey 1930’s-style block of flats.

The houses in Holland Villas Road are large detached houses of two or three storeys with basements. The builder was James Hall who built the houses over several years from 1857. Hall built about 120 houses in the estate in the 1850s. He also built extensively in the Chepstow Villas and Pembridge Place area. They are similar in size to his houses in Addison Road, but of a more modern design. The central portico entrance door is narrower to make room for large canted bay windows on either side. In place of Georgian balustrades topping the facades, the houses have a more modern construction with the roof slope overhanging the eaves. the houses are brick-faced with stucco finishes at basement level and around the windows. (Nos. 7, 19, 20 and 28 were later demolished.)

At the north end of the street, there is a modern block of flats called Fitzclarence House.

The street still has its Victorian street lamps - but converted from gas to electricity these days.

Help us rid Camden of hate crime
Help us rid Camden of hate crime 14 to 21 October is National Hate Crime Awareness Week In Camden, we are proud of our sense of community and are committed to tackling all forms of hate crime. Camden is no place for hate. A hate crime is behaviour is based on someone’s prejudice towards a person because of their race, religion, sexual orientation or disability or because they are transgender. Hate crime includes name-calling, threats and intimidation, whether out on the street or online. It also includes physical violence. No-one should be a victim of hate crime because of who they are. We’re determined to stop hate crime in Camden, so let’s work together to tackle it. If you, or anyone you know, has been called names, been bullied or had anything happen to them that you think may be because of race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or because they are transgender, we encourage you to report this as a hate crime.

Racist and religious hate crime went up by 11.9% from 616 to 689 cases and disability hate crime went up by 52.9% from 17 to 26 cases. Don’t suffer in silence We’re working with a range of partners to make sure our message – that hate crime won’t be tolerated – reaches everyone in the borough. We are proud of how diverse the people who choose to live, work, study in and visit Camden are. We want people to be able to go about their lives in Camden confidently. As a council we work with our communities to reassure and support them. Importantly, we work in partnership with the police and local organisations to tackle any instances of hate crime promptly. You might not feel like reporting a hate crime straight away, but please do report it when you can.

Holland Park

Holland Park is a district, an underground station (and indeed a park) in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

Holland Park has a reputation as an affluent and fashionable area, known for attractive large Victorian townhouses, and high-class shopping and restaurants.

The district was rural until the 19th century. Most of it was formerly the grounds of a Jacobean mansion called Holland House. In the later decades of that century the owners of the house sold off the more outlying parts of its grounds for residential development, and the district which evolved took its name from the house. It also included some small areas around the fringes which had never been part of the grounds of Holland House, notably the Phillimore Estate and the Campden Hill Square area. In the late 19th century a number of notable artists (including Frederic Leighton, P.R.A. and Val Prinsep) and art collectors lived in the area. The group were collectively known as ’The Holland Park Circle’. Holland Park was in most part very comfortably upper middle class when originally developed and in recent decades has gone further upmarket.

Of the 19th-century residential developments of the area, one of the most architecturally interesting is The Royal Crescent designed in 1839. Clearly inspired by its older namesake in Bath, it differs from the Bath crescent in that it is not a true crescent at all but two quadrant terraces each terminated by a circular bow in the Regency style which rises as a tower, a feature which would not have been found in the earlier classically inspired architecture of the 18th century which the design of the crescent seeks to emulate. The design of the Royal Crescent by the planner Robert Cantwell in two halves was dictated by the location of the newly fashionable underground sewers rather than any consideration for architectural aesthetics.

Holland Park is now one of the most expensive residential districts in London.

Holland Park station, on the Central London Railway, opened on 30 July 1900. The station building was refurbished in the 1990s.
