Description

A large oval of green space surrounded on three sides by streets of neo-Georgian buildings, Grosvenor Square is the centerpiece of the estate of the Dukes of Westminster, and bears their surname. While different in detail, the buildings have similar basic designs, with stone on the lowest story and red or pale brick above, stone detailing, and porticoed entrances. One of the largest buildings, at 1 Grosvenor Square, is the Embassy of the United States of America, continuing a presence that dates back to soon after that country's independence, while nearby at Number 4 is the Embassy of Italy. The other buildings are a mixture of former townhouses and mansions turned into flats and boutique hotels, while a small number remain private residences. The central gardens are surrounded by a wrought iron fence, an expanse of green in the heart of London. The gates are kept locked, and the keys are held by the surrounding residents, who pay for the garden's upkeep.

Base Townhouse Desc

An empty residence. The Mayfair neighborhood is a upper working class area and the residence reflects that to every nook and corner. Bare floors and walls are freshly scrubbed and painted. Several packing boxes are stacked here and there. The stringent scent of cleaning products and fresh paint is strong and ever lingering. This home is comprised of several rooms. A mud room just inside the front door is lined with racks and storage space for outside wear and poor weather accessories. If the home is multi-leveled the stairs usually are very close by the foyer. Every home comes with a living room area that's most usually adjoined to a dining room which is attached to a kitchen. Within the kitchen there are several appliances such as gas stove, sink, and refrigerator. Often there is storage space under any available stairway. More often than not the floors are all hardwood, waxed and polished in all shades from pale pine to dark oak in the fancier homes. Every home is slightly different in its lay out. But there are always of course the necessary rooms and at least one indoor bathroom.
