"The best of both worlds."

Ormond Street is at the centre of it all. The street is wide and leafy with a great outlook over the surrounding area. Given its close location to Oxford Street some may be turned off by this, but living at the top end of the street (Closer to Oxford Street) I have to say I have a peaceful night sleep.
Ormond Street is amazingly close to everything i.e. transport (Taxi's frequent Oxford Street and Glenmore road, you also have the 389, 333, 378, 380, M40, 352 bus routes just minutes away), Five ways cafes and boutiques, Paddington Town Hall and Library etc.

"Close to the bustle of Oxford Street."

Ormond Street, Paddington is a fairly non-descript street with typical houses to this area. It runs from busy Oxford to Glenmore Rd. There one side of the street has parallel parking the entire length, and the road is one way – from the direction of Glenmore.

The houses are all two and three storey Victorian terraces. Some of them are beautifully renovated, some are in average condition, and there are a few that are sorely neglected and in dire need of repair and renovations. The street is lightly treed, and not unattractive but not especially pretty either.

On the Oxford Street corner stands Juniper Hall, one of the local magnificent and historical properties, which is listed on the National Trust. The mansion house is Colonial Georgian and is a beautiful building with a remarkable history, including having been an orphanage – and not so long ago a toy museum. Currently it is leased to an antiques business.

Nearby on Oxford Street there are numerous shops, cafes, pubs, boutiques, a Post Office and the Paddington Town Hall (another historic building).

A short stroll away on Glenmore Street there are more shops and restaurants – this part of the area is more village like than the constant bustle of Oxford Street.

Buses are plentiful here.
