The Greek Royal Family’s Ornate Former London Mansion Seeks £39.5M

Looking to live like a royal? It’s not totally impossible, as the Greek Royal Family’s former London home just came to the market. The Eaton Square Home became home to the Greek Royal Family in 1947 through Her Royal Highness Princess Katherine of Greece and Denmark. Though it’s unclear how long they occupied the ornate Belgravia home, it’s now on the market for the first time in almost 30 years asking £39.5 million.

“With its fascinating Royal history, this magnificent townhouse-mansion provides the opportunity to acquire one of the finest houses on Eaton Square, on the market for the first time in a generation,” said Gary Hersham, founding director of listing company Beauchamp Estates. Built in 1825 by Thomas Cubbitt with the support of the Duke of Westminster, the home certainly looks the part of having ties to the Royal Family. Spectacular moldings, gold-lined finishes, and extravagant furnishings are all part of the ambiance.

Measuring in at over 10,600 square feet, the manse spares not one detail of opulence. It was completely refurbished in 1995, which helped to bring in modern conveniences like the stainless steel kitchen and luxurious open living spaces. But, you can still wine and dine like majesties in the traditional dining room or take to the garden terrace for fresh air surrounded by greenery.

For navigating the home’s four floors, one can opt for the dazzling staircases or save their breath and take the passenger elevators. The primary suite is most definitely fit for a king or queen, standing alone on its own floor.

The home also includes a mews house, typical for these types of builds, that provides space for another additional five bedrooms, or a fully-furnished combination of living and bedroom space. Beauchamp Estates holds the stately listing.
