What's it like to live in central London?
Based in the heart of Kensington and Chelsea, we are market leaders in both the Royal Borough’s and Westminster’s prime property market. We comprehensively cover all the prime areas of central London, particularly Belgravia and Knightsbridge, working as one team with Savills Knightsbridge.
The quality of our property portfolio is what defines us, rather than any particular area: our selection of houses and apartments represents the cream of the London market.
Property in central London
From perfect apartments to grand mansions, the prime areas radiating from Sloane Street contain some of the most desirable properties on the international market. The range is superb: classic period townhouses in gracious squares such as Eaton Square and Chester Square; ultra-prime new-build apartments and penthouses, including such flagship developments as One Hyde Park; and cottagey houses tucked away in quiet mews. Plus, of course, a huge selection of conversion apartments throughout the area.
The local scene
Sloane Street is the epicentre of fashionable London living. Situated in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, it is perfectly placed for some of the most desirable addresses in the world: Belgravia, Knightsbridge and Mayfair. The immediate vicinity of Sloane Street itself has a charming villagey atmosphere, with pretty streets tucked behind the main thoroughfares.
The private ownership of large tracts of the area around Sloane Street by aristocratic families has ensured the careful management of the area and the preservation of much of its historic character: the Cadogan Estate covers much of Chelsea and Knightsbridge, and the Grosvenor Estate owns Belgravia and Mayfair.
As one of London’s top two shopping streets (with Bond Street), Sloane Street contains the flagship stores of many of the finest names in fashion and is a centre of sophisticated dining. Nearby, the slightly trendier King’s Road boasts numerous individual boutiques and a large selection of dealers in fine antiques.
The Royal Court Theatre in Sloane Square is one of London’s most exciting producers of classic and contemporary drama. The nearby Apollo Victoria and Victoria Palace Theatres, opposite Victoria Station, present large-scale commercial productions.
District and Circle Line trains run from Sloane Square tube station East to the City and West to Kensignton High Street and Notting Hill. Nearby South Kensington station also offers Piccadilly Line services into the West End, up to King’s Cross and St Pancras International, and out to Heathrow.
There are regular bus services from Sloane Street to all parts of the capital.
