Area spotlight: Eccleston Square

Shining the light on one of brightest and most beautiful property areas in London: Eccleston Square.

Eccleston Square in the heart of prime London is desirable and well-connected, boasting classic Georgian townhouses that have become synonymous with luxury London. Property in Eccleston Square is sought-after, with historic roots dating back to the birth of Pimlico as we know it today. Following a busy year in the office and a great start to 2016, we’ve decided to shine a light on this bright and beautiful area that is just a stone’s throw away from our office along Belgrave Road.

The whole of Pimlico was developed by Thomas Cubitt, and his grid of residential streets is now a protected conservation area and a crowning achievement in London’s property history. As part of the gigantic development scheme, Cubitt first developed 1-3 Eccleston Square, followed by the completion of the entire square by 1850.

Georgian architecture is characterised by proportion, balance and uniformity, and this craftsmanship and diligence created swathes of Georgian-fronted communities across London. Areas like Eccleston Square are prime examples of how the style has contributed to London’s global reputation as a property hotspot.

Centuries later, this attention to detail has resulted in striking, luxurious property squares and streets, and interiors that are bright and spacious. Unlike many other areas in the capital, Eccleston Square has retained a central green space: the award-winning Eccleston Square Garden, for the enjoyment of surrounding residents.

In the past year, property in the Westminster borough has become some of the most desirable in the capital.  Pimlico garden square property listings are varied and exciting, from six-bedroom mansion blocks and flat conversions, to modernised, spacious rental properties with onsite facilities.  According to Land Registry data, the average price for a prime detached, semi-detached and terraced home in the City of Westminster all exceed £2 million, however, garden square property almost always outperforms the average.

The area

Eccleston Square is an ideal location for families, workers and investors. Victoria Station, and the many developments nearby as part of its £2 billion facelift, is a five minute walk away. Heathrow, Gatwick and London City airports are also approximately 30 minutes away. Further afield, Sloane Street and Pimlico underground station will also take you to wherever you want to go in London and beyond.

The area is known for its staying power, with many families living in its valuable garden square properties for generations. Belgravia close by is a base for high-end boutiques, arts venues and equally inspiring mansions. The Victoria Palace and Apollo Victoria theatres are also nearby, and the Tachbrook Street market provides the same kind of hustle and bustle as a lively village within the city.

At the heart of the areas popularity is its dominant five-and-six-storey townhouses that line the streets, with the most desirable flats and houses located around garden squares. Eccleston Square attracts a stream of UK and international buyers who recognise the high-quality marriage of a desirable lifestyle with private gardens and timeless investment property that is suited for modern living.
