Fun to Know

The Grosvenor story began in 1677 when Sir Thomas Grosvenor and his wife inherited 500 acres in what are now some of the most valuable neighbourhoods in London's Westminster district. Sir Thomas Grosvenor was not only a prominent landowner, his family dates back to William the Conqueror and includes the Duke of Westminster among his future kin. What does this have to do with homes? Well, any company that's been in the property business for three centuries probably knows how to build sophisticated and lasting ones. And with Smith, the proof is in the pudding.
