The Grosvenor name has been associated with world class real estate for more than three centuries
The Grosvenor family ancestry can be traced back almost 1,000 years, while its association with London property began over 340 years ago - in 1677 - when land to the west of the City of London came into the family following the marriage of Sir Thomas Grosvenor to Mary Davies.
Developing what were once pastures, swamps and orchards into London’s fashionable Mayfair in the 1720s, elegant Belgravia a hundred years later, and expanding the business internationally from the 1950s onwards, the Grosvenor name has since been associated with world-class real estate.
Today it represents one of the world’s largest privately owned international property companies.
