Hanover Private are real estate specialists in super prime property sales and lettings in Knightsbridge.

Sharing borders with Chelsea to the South, Belgravia to the East and South Kensington to the West, Knightsbridge is one of the most elite and prosperous areas of the capital.

Despite being a prime residential and retail area of Central London, Knightsbridge is also dominated by the expansive green space of Hyde Park. As a result, only 9,000 residents call this high-density area home, which further adds to the air of exclusivity. Strong links to aristocracy are still maintained here, with 275 listed buildings and a significant proportion of land owned by the Duke of Westminster and Lord Cadogan.

Architecture in Knightsbridge

With both a rich history and a recent wave of property investment, Knightsbridge is home to a variety of architectural styles. Property on the roads surrounding Eaton Square and Belgrave Square tends to be of a classical, white stucco-fronted Georgian design, while Victorian red-brick mansion blocks can be found at Cadogan Square, and modern apartment towers are located closer to Brompton Road and Hyde Park.

What makes Knightsbridge special

The proximity to world-class restaurants, boutiques and galleries allows Knightsbridge to offer the best of London in a luxury, cosmopolitan setting. Beautiful green spaces such as Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and Chelsea Physics Garden are a short walk away when you need respite from the city, while the rest of London is easily accessible from this central location.

Knightsbridge also maintains one of the lowest crime rates in London, with an attentive police force and plenty of security measures throughout the area, which makes it particularly appealing to families.

Knightsbridge Property types

Luxury property of all types is available in Knightsbridge, although some comes onto the market more frequently than others. Historic Georgian and Victorian terraced houses can be found throughout the area, while recent property developments One Hyde Park, 10 Lancelot Place, The Knightsbridge and The Bulgari Hotel and Residences propose stunning modern apartments and penthouses in towers overlooking London.

Detached properties come onto the market occasionally, but are relatively rare in this central location. Altering and developing property in Knightsbridge has previously been rather difficult due to conservation laws and local architectural demands, but the legislation surrounding the creation of roof terraces and basement conversions is gradually becoming more relaxed.
