The sweeping crescent, whose Grade II-listed properties are thought to have been built between 1837 and 1860, topped a list of the priciest streets published by Lloyds Bank. However, while Grosvenor Crescent’s residents are sitting pretty, with the typical price tag unchanged on last December, their wealthy neighbours in Eaton Square – which topped the bank’s table a year ago – have each typically seen more than £3m wiped off the value of their property in the space of 12 months, cutting the average price to just over £13.5m.
