Property description

This Central London apartment is in a Victorian house with period features (sash windows, wooden floors etc.), it is bright and located in a quiet area of Chelsea. The flat has a private back patio and a lovely south facing garden (with wild strawberries depending on the season) a display of deck chairs, garden tables and chairs to enjoy a meal outside with a glass of wine.
It offers the best of London with a zest of French culture.

Indeed, the flat has been refurbished and redecorated throughout: new bathroom (wet room) new kitchen, freshly painted walls and an exquisite French décor. There are two antique walnut (19e century) book-shelves in the drawing-room and two antique (19 century) walnut wood bedside tables in the bedroom sporting a rare “Verde Serpentine” marble top, a brass chandelier and two (19e century) recently upholstered 'Crapaud' armchairs in a bright red velvet.

This quiet residential area of Chelsea, it is also ideally situated for all the amenities and tourist attractions London has to offer.
Chelsea Wharf with its ten-acre park and access to the river is less than five minutes’ walk away: closer is the world-renowned 606 Jazz Club. Sports fans can enjoy the spectacle at Chelsea Football Ground, while bargain-hunters can wander round the auction house (literally at the end of the road) and the antique-shops that have sprung-up around it.

Burnaby Street is two minutes from London’s famous Kings Road with its trendy high-end shops, boutiques, coffee-houses, cinemas, bars, restaurants and night-clubs - London’s beautiful people throng to Bluebird, Eight over Eight, Beaufort House, Raffles and the famous ‘151’ - all within a fifteen minute walk.

Transport links to the property - by plane, the closer airport is Heathrow, either take the Heathrow Express to Paddington station and jump in a taxi, the ride will take 20 minutes or take the tube (Piccadilly line) to South Kensington station, with a 10 to15 minutes taxi ride to the property .
Another alternative is Gatwick airport. The Gatwick Express brings you directly to Victoria station, the taxi ride will take 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can go on the tube at Victoria, take the district or circle line to South Kensington or Sloane Square, the taxi ride will be 10 to 15 minutes long.
By train, take the Eurostar at St Pancras International station, taxi ride will take 25 minutes to the property.

Transport links from the property - take a train from the newly-opened Imperial Wharf station (7 minutes walk from the apartment) and join the District Line - which gives access to the whole City with its museums, art galleries, palaces and ancient buildings - at West Brompton station. Or stay on the train to Olympia - or the new Westfield Shopping Centre with its shops, bars and cinemas in just 9 minutes. There is also a connection to Clapham Junction with trains to Windsor Castle and other tourist attractions around London. The flat is a 12-minute walk from Fulham Broadway. Additionally there are numerous ‘buses (14 and 22) to take you along the Kings Road to Sloane Square (home of Peter Jones’ Department Store) where you can also pick-up the London Underground rail-system.
Alternatively, you can take the River Boat Services just 6-miutes away from Chelsea Wharf. This service will take you to Blackfriars and up to Greenwich.

For ultra-convenient eating-out the Lots Road Gastro-Pub is just around the corner, and the Chelsea Ram with its varied menu of food and drink is less than sixty seconds’ walk from the front door. For those of a more-adventurous gastronomical disposition, Chutney Mary’s (Indian cuisine) is 5 minutes away, and La Famiglia (Italian) is also close-by.

We will provide you with a welcome pack including toiletries (cotton pads, tissues, tooth paste, hand soap & various shower gels) & also a gourmet food welcome pack including olive oil, balsamic vinegar, crystal salt, pepper, butter, bread, mineral water, cereal, coffee (instant and grounded) and various teas.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: French English national, portrait photographer. Film distribution since 2008

Why the Owner Chose Kensington & Chelsea:
I chose Chelsea because to me it is quintessentially English. The roads are quiet with the typical white stucco houses. Most of the squares have private communal gardens, (with tennis courts) for the exclusive use of the local residents. There is a great variety of restaurants and traditional pubs like the Anglesea Arms (dating 1712 ). In a funny sort of way the “village” quality of the area reminds me of the rue du Bac in Paris 7e arrondissement where I spent my childhood. Good transport links to the property - by plane, the closer airport is Heathrow, either take the Heathrow Express to Paddington station & jump in a taxi, the ride will take 20 minutes or take the tube (Piccadilly line) to South Kensington station, with a 10 to15 minutes taxi ride to the property . Another alternative is Gatwick airport. The Gatwick Express brings you directly to Victoria station, the taxi ride will take 15 minutes. Or, you can go on the tube at Victoria, take the district or circle line to South Kensington or Sloane Square, the taxi ride will be 10 to 15 minutes long.By train, take the Eurostar at St Pancras International station, taxi ride will take 25 minutes to the property. Good transport links from the property - take a train from the newly-opened Imperial Wharf station (7 minutes walk from the apartment) and join the District Line - which gives access to the whole City with its museums, art galleries, palaces and ancient buildings - at West Brompton station. Or stay on the train to Olympia - or the new Westfield Shopping Centre with its shops, bars and cinemas in just 9 minutes. There is also a connection to Clapham Junction with trains to Windsor Castle and other tourist attractions around London. The flat is a 12-minute walk from Fulham Broadway. Additionally there are numerous ‘buses (14 and 22) to take you along the Kings Road to Sloane Square (home of Peter Jones’ Department Store) where you can also pick-up the London Underground rail-system.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The flat is at the heart of Chelsea with the King's road (restaurants and shops) at my door step. On Saturdays, I enjoy going to the Duke of York square food local market. From the flat one can take the London River Boat services from Chelsea Wharf to Greenwich, and enjoy the city's sight seeing views from the river.
