Defined by grand terraces of white stucco townhouses and leafy garden squares, Belgravia was created in the 19th century for London’s high society. Since then, the architectural heritage of this classic Regency neighbourhood has been carefully safeguarded, restricting the opportunity to reconfigure the interiors of its magnificent townhouses in tune with contemporary living.
One exception is Belgravia Gate, a development of 12 residences on Grosvenor Crescent. “Belgravia Gate is the latest addition to the longstanding heritage of Belgravia,” says Ed Lewis, Head of London Residential Development Sales at Savills. “The five 19th-century townhouses are Grade II listed, and have been beautifully restored throughout to create an unbelievable 21st-century luxury experience.”
Residences at Belgravia Gate are variously configured over five storeys and three basement levels. The development comprises three townhouse-style grand apartments arranged over four floors, six expansive lateral apartments, one duplex mews apartment and two duplex penthouses. Each has been built on the scale of a large private home, in keeping with the grand heritage of the buildings. The classic interior features have been painstakingly restored.
“The architectural proportions of Regency buildings are exceptional,” he says. “The ceiling heights are in excess of three metres.”
Given the generous space and scale, all of the residences are flooded with natural light, emphasising the contemporary finishes, natural tones and exquisite detailing. Each property can be accessed via direct private lift from the ground-floor reception, basement parking levels, spa or wine cellars. Behind the beautiful façade, features include treatment and massage rooms, gym, personal training facilities and a swimming pool.
“The attention to detail and respect for the heritage of the building are superb. Combining period and beautifully crafted interior spaces so faithfully is an amazing achievement, but it has been an arduous and painstaking process. That’s why there are so few opportunities to buy a property of this period with modern interiors in such a prestigious neighbourhood. They are so rare.”
