Exterior Stucco in all its Glory

Published: 13/05/2022

Exterior Stucco in all its Glory

Stucco is a cement-type mixture made of Lime, sand, water and Portland cement. Stucco is not only energy efficient, low maintenance, rot resistant and fire resistant, it also adds huge value to your home and creates an opulent exterior.

Stucco was used in Ancient Greece in as early as 1400 BCE for both interior and exterior temple walls. Fast forward multiple lifetimes and Stucco became an iconic London exterior feature in the latter half of the 18th century. Highly prestigious buildings in the early Victorian era used stucco and over a century later, the infamous Stucco is still present and highly representative of some of London's most exclusive areas.  

Belgravia is renowned for its white stucco townhouses, making residency here, exclusive and highly sought after. Belgravia has often been referred as the quintessential upscale London neighbourhood. The average price for a property in Belgravia is £2,851,000 with semi-detached houses being £6,175,000 and super mansions reaching excess of £100 million.

The stuccoed facades and grandest private garden squares are key in differentiating this area to its Prime Central London counterparts. To own a property with  an iconic stucco exterior is to own a piece of British history. In Belgravia, alongside other areas including Maida Vale, private estate control has maintained the architectural unity.
Achieved rental values have increased by 37.6% compared to the same period last year and sales in Belgravia in the last 3 months annual change in achieved price has too, risen 2.8%. 
The high price tags attached to the magnificent properties in Belgravia are improbable to change which only add to the exclusivity of ownership. To pay the price is to pay for the privilege.
