Aristocratic Ambiance

30.05.21

There are a great many clues as to the provenance of this rare and impressive eight-bedroom townhouse on Eaton Terrace, for sale with Harrods Estates and Savills for £9,500,000. Not only is it on one of the premier Belgravia streets, close to Sloane Square, but from the very first glance, with its red brick façade, glossy Georgian front door and wrought-iron balustrades; it’s no surprise that the vendor is the personification of English charm, influence and high society.

The property’s owner is Lady Dalmeny; having been married to Henry Dalmeny, Chairman of Sotheby’s, naturally the home features several period details.  As an influential protagonist at the heart the British society, she has been named on Tatler magazine’s Popularity Power List.  Lady Dalmeny has forged a highly successful career an Associate Fellow of the Royal United Services Institute (a think tank engaged on defence and security research), a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Senior Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine, former Chair of the Caledonian Trust and sitting on consultation boards at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies and Ministry of Defence. In recent years she has built a large and successful portfolio of rental, commercial and residential properties in central London and Scotland, which she and her team at Dalmeny and Self refurbish and manage.

The property itself is no less grand. This imposing family house comprises 4467 square foot and stands midway along the east side of Eaton Terrace with an outlook directly down Graham Terrace to the west. Unlike many of the traditional layouts on these homes in Belgravia, it has been shaped to work as a family home. Unusually the kitchen and dining room are on the first floor with space to sit 16 comfortably around the dining room table. Whilst the formal reception and sitting rooms are found on the ground floor. The bedrooms are located over the three upper floors with the principal bedroom suite occupying the second floor.

There is a large office, staff room, guest bedroom and vaults on the lower ground floor. A beautiful 30 foot long garden provides an excellent outdoor entertaining area and can also be accessed from the ground floor.

Shaun Drummond, Director of Sales at Harrods Estates comments: “This unique property is extra special because entire houses are rare around this highly sought-after part of Belgravia. Since Thomas Cubitt first designed the prestigious streets of Eaton Square and Eaton Terrace in the mid 1820s, it has long been associated with homes of those with power and influence – in fact Lord Snowdon was born on Eaton Terrace - making it a quintessentially English address. With its parquet flooring, original fireplaces with fender surrounds, sash windows and dormer rooftop, this property has held on to that English character in every regard.”

William Duckworth-Chad, Director of Savills Private Office: “This is a truly impressive family home located in one of the world’s most sought-after addresses. Having been held in the same ownership for many years, the sale of Eaton Terrace presents an exciting opportunity for a buyer to see the property into its next chapter. Given its incredibly desirable location, we anticipate interest from both London based and international buyers looking for a best in class family home. There is a sense that London is now a real ‘buy’ in global terms and we anticipate that once travel restrictions are lifted, there will be strong demand for real estate in the golden postcodes.”

Formed by Sloane Street to the west, Knightsbridge to the north, Grosvenor Place and Buckingham Palace Road to the east and Pimlico Road to the south, Belgravia’s residents continue to include historians, poets, princes, statesmen, industrialists, inventors, field marshals, scientists, actors, politicians, painters, and reformers.

Living on Eaton Terrace in this classic Belgravia townhouse address offers a wide range of local amenities available on Elizabeth Street just 0.1 miles away. Sloane Square and the world-renowned Kings Road are also close by with their shops, restaurants, bars and cinemas. In addition, Sloane Square tube station and Victoria Station are both easily accessible to the property.
