Caroline Terrace , Belgravia

Caroline Terrace contains attractive houses, most of which are of a size which still works for modern family homes. They are usually on 3 or 4 floors from ground floor up, with a semi-basement as well. The accommodation usually includes 3 or 4 bedrooms. The houses have their own gardens and some of them have garages.
Samuel Archbutt, a Victorian developer active in the area in the 1820s, was involved in much of the construction.
Most houses have stucco facades at ground floor and semi-basement levels, with exposed brick work from the first floor level upwards.
Charles McCall (1907 - 1989), an artist and designer, lived and died at No. 1A according to the 'Blue Plaque' on the wall.
