● 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.
