PROPERTY TYPES & ARCHITECTURE
The architecture that of the regency fronted buildings are a notable trait within Belgravia: with some of these properties having been converted into hostels or hotels for young tourists and holidaymakers alike. However, there are few residential properties that come on to the market as they are more profitable as visitors’ accommodation, when they do they tend to come under a high price. The internal quality of the buildings can often be different, where some properties may have excellent conditions whilst some can be exceptionally poor. Moreover, when these properties are at their best, they can often match properties in neighbouring areas of Sloane Square and London Victoria.
SHOPPING & ENTERTAINMENT
Belgravia is a hotspot filled with hotels, which has very few shopping and/or entertainment in the immediate district. However, just minutes away in Pimlico and Victoria boasts an array of entertainment and shopping.
PARKS & COMMONS Belgravia has little in the way of large parks but there are noted for a few small communal gardens, all of which are openly accessible.
WHO LIVES HERE? Permanent residents tend to be wealthy couples and may have lived in the area for a long period of time. Occasionally when properties do become available they are snapped up by the wealthy and at times foreign investors.
