Eaton Square in Belgravia, London, SW1W 9AL
- by CityWest Residential
Situated in central London, in the City of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Belgravia’s close proximity to some of the capital’s key attractions and best known landmarks has earned it a reputation as one of the city’s most expensive postcodes. In fact, it is one of the most affluent residential areas in the world. Often referred to as a ‘super prime’ residential area to the South West of Central London.
Belgravia’s elegant streets are lined with a wealth of stunning homes, - grand terraces of white stucco houses, many of which have retained much of its rich cultural and historic heritage.
One of Belgravia’s most famous squares is Eaton Square. Designed and built 1827. It was named after Eaton Hall, in Cheshire, the principal seat of the Duke of Westminster. This residential garden square is one of the area’s key landmarks and, although property in the square is somewhat less expensive than properties located right in the very heart of the district, homes here still come with an eye-popping price tag (but it’s easy to see why!).
Divided into six individual and unique enclosures, the square is one of London’s biggest and provides the perfect escape from the general busy-ness afflicting Londoners.
Eaton Square, and Belgravia was originally a marshland, populated with highwaymen, murderers and thieves. How times have changed! Property sales regularly exceed £3,000 - £4,000 per square foot on Eaton Square.
Once the home of Vivien Leigh, Neville Chamberlain and Sean Connery, the square’s beautiful landscaped gardens and large green spaces make it the perfect spot to relax and unwind in tranquil surroundings.
