About the Property

Garden Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)


Located on Embankment Gardens across the street from the Thames River in the heart of Old Chelsea our London pied-a-terre is a perfect destination for lovers of all the wonderful things that London has to offer. Embankment Gardens is like a small jewel tucked between the grounds of the Royal Chelsea Hospital Garden and London’s legendary Physic Gardens. Less than a five minute walk away, the world famous Chelsea Flower Show is held each May. Across the river is Battersea Park with its array of seasonal gardens, some of the best running paths in London and home of many seasonal art fairs.

We challenge Art Lovers to visit all the nearby museums and galleries along the King’s Road including the Saatchi Gallery at the fashionable Duke of York’s outdoor mall where many of London’s finest antique fairs are held on an annual basis. Sloane Square, with its shops, bars and restaurants is an easy 10 minute walk. Stroll along the Thames to the Tate Britain and then take their ferry service across the Thames to the Tate Modern. Pimlico, where treasures from around the world can be found, is a favorite haunt of interior designers and antique lovers is on your doorstep.

Foodies will need to book well in advance at London's only Michelin three star restaurant, Gordon Ramsey on Royal Hospital Road, less than a five minute walk. Or perhaps London's finest Indian cuisine at The Painted Heron intrigues you. We love The Cheyne Walk Brasserie with its upstairs comfy lounge and delicious array of Provencal treats. Local pubs are on every corner and London's most traditional food shop, Partridge's, is ten minutes away. Perfect for a take away meal to enjoy in the privacy of our secret walled garden.

Our London flat is an art filled haven with one bedroom, a full bathroom and guest loo and a combination living room/dining room overlooking a private walled garden. Enjoy coffee in the morning or an early evening drink in the total privacy of this bit of paradise. The newly installed, fully equipped, Poggenpohl kitchen is ready for your stay at home meals which can be enjoyed either outside or inside.

We provide you with our London Tip Sheet, Personal Restaurant Favorites, Insider Details, a host of London Guide Books along with all the general knowledge you’ll need. We hope you’ll love our flat as much as we do. Enjoy London like a Londoner in Old Chelsea.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are world travelers with homes in a number of places. London, considered to be the center of the world for finance, the arts, theatre and international cuisine, is one of our favorite cities. We visit whenever we can and are happy to share our pied a terre when we are not there.

Why the Owner Chose Chelsea (London, UK):
We love London! Our children live in London! Our grandchildren live in London! Now we can entertain them in our secret garden tucked behind the Royal Chelsea Hospital Grounds, home of the world renown Chelsea Flower Show. Seasonal events attract an international array of visitors. Royal Ascot, Wimbledon, the flower show, antique fairs, museums and opera all all within an easy distance.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Our secret garden is perhaps one of the quietest locations one can find in the heart of bustling London. Nestled between the Royal Hospital Gardens and the River Thames, no noise at all, other than birdsong, interrupts one's thoughts. We find it a great spot to refresh ourselves between shopping, gallerying and socializing in the world's greatest city.
