Property For Sale in Chelsea

Some of the most expensive residential districts in the world are found in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.  Chelsea, famously described as ‘the village of palaces’, is well known because of the royals and wealthy locals who lived in the area over the years.

The area is steeped in history. Not only home to landmarks like the Chelsea Royal Hospital and the Chelsea Barracks, but memorials in Chelsea Old Church are a testament to the rich and colourful history of this iconic place in London.

Many great artists, painters, poets and radicals have called Chelsea home over the years. In the 19th century the area around Cheyne Walk was frequented by a large number of artists, earning the reputation of being London’s bohemian quarter. In the 60s, iconic acts like The Beatles and the Rolling Stones took up residence in the Cheyne Walk area, and later King’s Road saw the birth of the British Punk movement.

Today it is known as a centre of influence and innovation and Chelsea properties are in high demand among overseas buyers.
