Buy prestigious property in Belgravia, London

If you were ever looking to acquire a symbol of status in London, then look no further. Between the high streets of Kensington and the green glamour of Buckingham Palace Gardens, lies a niche neighborhood where real estate is served on a silver platter. Engraved in cursive: Welcome to Belgravia.

SW1X, London’s most exclusive address

To live in Belgravia is to enjoy an elite lifestyle of beauty, luxury, and high-end services. It comes as no surprise that a place of such exclusivity has an equally rich history. It began as a family affair, when the honorable Grosvenor family inherited 500 acres of land, formerly known as Five Fields, in the early 19th century. Over time, the small neighborhood was transformed into an elegant quarter of prestigious housing for members of the aristocracy, important political figures, such as Margaret Thatcher, and artistic geniuses like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Today it remains home to many Grade II listed buildings, as well as the most expensive real estate not only in London but the entire world.

Tranquility, privacy, class, and style share the air on the picturesque streets and leafy squares of Belgravia. This small area is condensed with regal architecture, perhaps influenced by neighbors at Buckingham, but more reminiscence of an Italian style. It’s the beauty of its white stucco terraces uniformly lined next to landscaped garden squares.

Buyers looking to buy or rent super-prime properties in a setting so sublime trust their search with the expert team at BARNES London. Clients are offered a selection of large family properties with multiple floors and every luxury imaginable. To acquire the most prestigious properties in London is to live on a Georgian terraced square in Belgravia, like Belgrave Square, Eaton Square, Chester Square, and Lowndes Square. To live in the decadence of the past, consider a residence on Upper Belgrave Street and Wilton Crescent. A mix of old and new, with vintage mew houses and modern apartments at Eccleston Place. If you’re looking for a project, you can find properties in Belgravia built around the Second World War that are currently undergoing transformations into residences, making it a particularly exciting time to invest in Belgravia.  

Live up to Belgravia’s reputation

Although considered a part of the City of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the district of Belgravia and its reputation of wealth remains relatively discrete.

Buyers, investors, and long-term renters look to its quiet yet illustrious blocks for principal and secondary residences. A population of Ultra High Networth Individuals (UHNWI), especially high-earning families, choose to settle down in Belgravia due to its proximity to a wide variety of prestigious schools (from nursery to secondary, co-ed to single-sex) and curriculums with a global focus, like that of the Southbank International School. Children area also privileged to enjoy fun extracurricular activities at the Sylvia Young Theatre School.

Located in the heart of the city, between the West End and Knightsbridge, you’ll find yourself surrounded by cultural attractions, such as the marvelous exhibitions at the Tate Britain and intriguing museums on Exhibition Road. A stroll down the picturesque Elizabeth Street, for camera-ready floral arrangements and chic boutiques. We especially love Belgravia for the local atmosphere in its fine-dining eateries. A table at Zafferano or Motcombs, followed by a cocktail at Dukes Bars is an absolute must. After all, it is the place where Ian Fleming, author of James Bond, created his famous leading man, and his signature drink.   

If ever there was a neighborhood sport in Belgravia, it would be shopping (sorry football fans). Belgravia is located very close to some of London’s major commercial centers in Knightsbridge and Kensington. Head to Belgravia Village (on Eccleston Street, Ebury Street, Motcomb Street, and Elizabeth Street) and shop ‘til you drop, through a variety of major luxury brands and small cult favorites. Smell the roses at Judith Blacklock Flower School and go grocery shopping at the Jeroboams for fine wines, the famous Poilâne bakery for fresh french bread, and last but not least Rococo for a sweet treat of decadent chocolates.

It may seem like a life of excess, but really, it’s a life of privilege and discretion that awaits you in Belgravia.
