Why Knightsbridge and Sloane Square

As Knightsbridge and Sloane Square, we recognise the importance of having the finger on the pulse of property values in Knightsbridge and Sloane Square

Over the years, Knightsbridge has secured its reputation as one of the world’s most luxurious districts for work and play, with neighbouring Sloane Square equally popular.

The areas are bordered on all sides by desirable neighbourhoods such as Mayfair, Belgravia, Chelsea, South Kensington and Holland Park – making them two of the capital’s most sought-after locations.

Named after the location of a bridge that crossed the Westbourne River that medieval knights fought duels, Knightsbridge is synonymous with lavish living. A culturally and architecturally rich district with an air of decadence flowing through the side streets, here tourists and residents can enjoy an abundance of luxury shops, high-end restaurants and exciting cultural attractions.

What’s more, open space is plentiful, with Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens on the doorstep, providing peace and tranquillity for those who wish to escape the hustle and bustle of city life for a short while.

There are several Michelin-starred restaurants in the area, and those eager to live the luxury lifestyle can also take a stroll down Sloane Street and Brompton Road where flagship stores of iconic British and international brands as well as famed department stores, Harrods and Harvey Nichols, reside.

While there is so much to explore, the diminutive size of both Knightsbridge and Sloane Square make them manageable to get around.

There is a diverse range of properties in Knightsbridge, from classic period houses, to large flats, modern developments and many of the finest garden squares in London - prospective buyers and renters really are spoilt for choice here.

The narrow passageway at the north end of the district is a joy to walk through, with roads like Montpelier Place, Rutland Street and Cheval Place bursting with stunning homes.

Knightsbridge features many of the country’s ‘super rich’ homes, too, achieving some of the highest property prices in the world. Average monthly rents here are around £9,000, while sales average at around £2 million.

Similarly, Sloane Square offers a varied housing stock, with many period properties having been converted into studio flats. In fact, Belgravia and Sloane Square boast some of the most attractive buildings in London, with a large number of them built by the renowned architect Thomas Cubitt in the 1820s and 30s.

Our directors say…

“Two neighbourhoods at the very top end of the market, which ooze sophistication and offer some of the capital’s most celebrated traditional properties, shops and restaurants.”
