Stucco Splendour

London’s most elegant façades

Many of the most sought after properties in the capital are fronted with stucco. The white render is instantly recognisable in London’s smartest postcodes from Chelsea and Belgravia to Hamsptead and Knightsbridge. Made from sand, lime and water, the material has been favoured by several famous architects, including John Nash who used it when he designed the sweeping cream terraces abutting Regent’s Park.

Richard Saltmer, Lettings Director at Dexters, says, ‘Living in a white stucco fronted house with high ceilings, cornicing and big bay windows, is for people who want to live the London lifestyle. It’s about location, it’s about history. Not every stucco building has an English Heritage blue plaque but there is a sense of the generations who have lived there before.’

Now, a beautiful four bedroom stucco fronted property in the heart of Belgravia has become available to rent. Ideally located next to Elizabeth Street, with the world-famous Peggy Porschen cafe and the beloved Thomas Cubitt Pub, as well as the Kings Road and Knightsbridge nearby, it would make the perfect family home.

Inside, all the interiors have been recently refurbished with pristine white walls and new appliances. Set over five storeys, the highlight of the house is undoubtedly the family room with double height floor-to-ceiling windows that open out onto a courtyard patio. On the same floor, there’s a spacious open plan kitchen and dining room, with bespoke white cupboards and grey worktops, which give the space a bright and contemporary feel. For those looking to entertain, there’s also a separate dining room and reception on the raised ground floor.



Upstairs, the principal bedroom suite has not only integrated wardrobes and a separate en suite bathroom, but also a private gym with a view out onto the garden. One floor up, there’s an equally large bedroom and bathroom, while the two top floors provide two further bedrooms that would be ideal for children.

Charlie Daniels, Director of Dexters Chelsea & Belgravia, says, ‘this house is incredibly unique thanks to its size and ultra luxurious finishes. With great transport links to Sloane Square Station and a private parking permit, we expect there will be lots of interest.’
