The most expensive place to live…

20 January 2017

In a report by the BBC London’s Eaton Square is officially the UK most expensive place to live, with an average house price of £17m

It is one of three squares developed by the Grosvenor family following the end of the Napoleonic wars and the conversion of Buckingham House into a palace for King George IV.

Eaton Square takes its name from Eaton Hall in Cheshire, the country home of the Duke of Westminster.

It has boasted numerous famous residents including ex-prime ministers Neville Chamberlain and Stanley Baldwin as well as actress Vivien Leigh, former Bond star Sean Connery and TV cook Nigella Lawson.

A £55m seven bedroom terrace, complete with a winter garden and retractable glass ceiling, on Eaton Square was the most-viewed home for online property website Rightmove in 2016.
