Noted for its immensely expensive residential properties, Belgravia takes its name from Viscount Belgrave and, under the scrupulous control of The Grosvenor Estate, the now familiar high quality of property and exclusive retailer is maintained. As a consequence, Belgravia can continue to boast its international appeal as one of London’s most desirable addresses in which to live, work, eat, shop and socialise.
Properties rarely come to the market in Belgravia, but when they do there is always a queue of wealthy international buyers hoping to become the successful bidder. The domestic market is less evident in this post code and instead we see a global mix of European, Asian, Middle Eastern and South African buyers either already in situ, or looking to acquire their perfect trophy home in the heart of the Capital.
The most notable addresses in Belgravia are the squares and crescents – Wilton Crescent, Chester Square, Belgrave Square and Lowndes Square. All of these prime addresses benefit from close proximity to some of London’s finest eateries and designer shops, with the promise of more to come. But perhaps the most high profile of them all is Eaton Square – one of London’s largest. The houses in Eaton Square are spacious and impactful, although not the largest houses in Belgravia.
There are only a handful of single dwellings left but the most sought after properties are undoubtedly the lateral flats, particularly those on the ground, first or second floors. If the combination of style, quality and elegance are what you require in a property and its surroundings, then you need look no further than this most special of addresses. And of course you will always be assured of a very sound investment.
