Belgravia features some of the most elegant and expensive homes in the world, and is one of the most fashionable places to own a home in the capital.
There are a wide selection of terraced and mews houses, along with converted and purpose built apartments, including portered apartment blocks and penthouses. But housing supply is restrictive, as homes placed on the sales market are often snapped up in a short space of time, and often for an extremely high price.
Consequently, it comes as little surprise that the vast majority of people who buy property in Belgravia tend to be extremely wealthy. Homes are often passed down through the generations rather than sold. Such limited residential supply, coupled with the prestige of living in the area, ensures that property prices - to buy and rent - always remain high.
Belgravia is characterised by the white stucco fronted houses and palatial properties, among other homes architecturally influenced by Richard Grovesnor's era during the early to mid-nineteenth century.
Landlords interested in Belgravia's rental market, will find that there is no shortage of prospective tenants - both long and short-term - due to the areas central location and the high volume of year-round tourists visiting the area.
The nearest underground tube stations are Sloane Square, Zone 1, which is served by the Circle and District lines and Victoria Station with the Victoria Line and mainline rail services.
There are a number of 24-hour buses operating in the area, along with an almost constant flow of taxis.
A national coach service operating routes to and from the rest of the country is available in nearby Victoria.
