Wandsworth apartment description

La belle vie

There aren’t too many apartments in the heart of Chelsea with their own front door. But this marvel is one of them. Half between the King’s Road and the river, you’ll find Ormonde Gate, an elegant duplex arranged over the ground and lower ground floors of an Edwardian mansion block. Antique furniture, porcelain, and classic pieces are situated around this apartment for the most grown-up of grown-ups. But it’s also designed for comfort. Your hosts understand what it is to live well. So pull up one of the many well-upholstered chairs, choose a novel from a bookcase and indulge yourself.

Le style français

Ormonde Gate is the beautifully-designed London pied à terre of a doctor and his wife, a marketing consultant. When they’re not using it as a base to visit London’s art galleries, theatres and the opera, they divide their time between their houses in Devon and France.

C’est magnifique

Open the door from the hall and you’ll find yourself in a vast, light-filled reception room. One side functions as a sitting-room – well-chosen, plump armchairs and commodious sofas abound – while the other has a formal dining table, with a huge bay window overlooking the street. The kitchen is next door, all soft blues and pools of light – quite the place for your breakfast, or to create a sumptuous dinner for eight. Away from the formal and public, downstairs are the private rooms: two large bedrooms beautifully decorated in the country style, each with an ensuite bathroom. And as the pièce de résistance, you (and only about 20 others) have direct access to a shared, private garden straight from the sitting room.

Allons-nous

The area around Ormonde Gate is as recherché and refined as the apartment. Take a stroll along the river, or pop into one of the many Michelin-starred restaurants in the area. If you want to head into the west end, Sloane Square tube is a ten-minute walk and then you’re only 15 minutes from the centre of town.
