Located in the heart of the Belgravia Conservation Area, this fine Grade II Listed house is a prime example of early/mid 19th Century Regency style architecture which is a feature of this part of Belgravia. Eaton Terrace was planned by Thomas Cubitt and, although they conform to similar mass and scale, the architectural features of each house subtly vary. This is representative of the speculative nature of the development and of the different building companies involved in the construction.
Originally built as a single-family dwelling, with mews house, the property has over the years been subject to numerous unsympathetic alterations and additions. Most recently the building comprised four apartments arranged across its six floors while the connection through to the mews house had also been lost.
Rodić Davidson Architects were commissioned by the owner of the property to prepare proposals for the building’s restoration to its original historic use as a single-family dwelling. Planning and Listed Building consent for the amalgamation of the subdivided units into one dwelling was granted by Westminster City Council in 2015. This consent included many improvements to the building which sought to repair its historic plan form and reinstate important heritage features that had been previously lost or obscured by earlier alterations. The consented proposals also contain a new basement storey and a new lift.
Following the owner’s later purchase of the mews building immediately to the rear of the house, a subsequent consent was obtained by Rodić Davidson Architects which included the further extension of the new basement underneath the mews, along with a ground floor link between the mews and the main house thereby allowing the provision of secure off-street parking.
The property is situated within Grosvenor’s Belgravia Estate, and a number of aspects of development are subject to the control of Grosvenor’s Belgravia Estate Management Scheme.
Full air conditioning features throughout and the building’s services infrastructure has been comprehensively upgraded to provide fully integrated lighting, AV and security systems.
