It's hip to be square

Each one is different and each one is rich in history. They have been graced by the rich and famous for decades and are located in some of our most desirable postcodes. Who could resist the allure of a garden square property' London's garden squares are among the unsung glories of the capital, rich in architectural and social history. They are beautiful and are surrounded by grand houses. Unlike London's great open spaces, such as Hyde Park and Hampstead Heath and Wimbledon, its garden squares are small, even diminutive, but they have some great stories to tell. Some of the most exclusive addresses in the capital, from Belgrave Square to Carlton House Terrace Gardens, from Eaton Square to Lincoln's Inn Fields, are not just streets, but micro-communities, with a shared garden at their heart. Just as there is something aesthetically pleasing about a crescent which adds tens of thousands to property prices, so properties situated on garden squares always find ready buyers and command a substantial premium. That is particularly true in Kensington and Chelsea. Cadogan Square, Lowndes Square. Redcliffe Square' The list just goes on. Or take Eccleston Square in Pimlico, which was laid out in the 19th century and is surrounded by the some of the most elegant terraces in the capital. Former residents include Sir Winston Churchill, Hugh Jackman and Sir Michael Costa. Many of the bigger houses on Eccleston Square have been divided up into flats. But it has never lost the cachet of a garden square in the heart of the city. You should expect to pay anything from around £875,000 for a one-bedroom apartment or £2.75m (upwards) for a three-bedroom house, in one of our much loved London squares. Right across the capital ' from Tavistock Square in Bloomsbury to Kensington Square, the oldest garden square in London ' it is the same story: beautiful properties in surroundings that give them an added dimension of graciousness.
