Elegant living in the heart of the action
With Bond Street, Savile Row and Mount Street on your door step, living in Mayfair means you are in the world’s most exclusive and expensive shopping area. It is a shoppers’ paradise but retains a quintessentially English village feel in the heart of central London. The street names such as Davies Street and Grosvenor Square tell the story of how the marriage of the heiress Mary Davies to Sir Thomas Grosvenor in 1677 laid the foundations of one of London’s greatest estates.
Literally a stone’s throw from Fitzrovia and Soho, you’re also privy to the best new restaurants and bars, count five-star hotels like Claridge’s and Brown’s as neighbours and are a mere stumbling distance from members' clubs including Annabel’s and The Arts Club. Living in Mayfair is, in essence, all about enjoying the good life.
While there have been some recent new build developments in the Mayfair area, the historic nature of the neighbourhood means space is very much at a premium and properties that do come to market tend to be two- or three-bedroom flats and duplexes rather than townhouses. What you are sacrificing in square footage, however, Mayfair properties tend to make up for with style. If you like high ceilings and Regency-style features, this is the neighbourhood for you.
