Our Chelsea estate agents love the hidden charm that SW3 and the surrounding postcodes have to offer. Contact us today for expert advice on buying, renting and selling in Chelsea. Here are a few things our sales and letting love about this exclusive London neighbourhood situated along the Thames Embankment.
Historic Chelsea. Chelsea is steeped in military history, with landmarks like the Chelsea Royal Hospital, Chelsea Barracks and, until recently, the Duke of York’s barracks. The Cheyne Walk area was a famous artist’s colony in the 19th century. In the 1960s, this famous suburb was home to famous residents the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
The Village of Palaces. The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea originally housed grand riverside palaces built by many nobles and aristocrats to escape the city. While Lindsey House is the only original surviving palace, more than half of London’s most expensive streets can still be found around the Chelsea Embankment.
Your future neighbours. Many international buyers are snapping up premium properties with addresses on Fulham Road, The Boltons and Cadogan Square. Chelsea, however, is popular with just about everyone - from young single people attracted to the prestigious Chelsea Harbour, to families who appreciate the good schools and high standard of living.
SW3 is the place to be. It is hardly surprising that demand for property far outstrips supply in the sought-after area. The SW3 and SW10 postcodes generally offer a diverse range of conversion flats, mansion flats and houses to buy and let. The areas around Sloane Square Underground Station, Chelsea Bridge Road, and the borough’s garden squares fetch the highest prices.
Eating, drinking and shopping. Chelsea is internationally renowned for designer boutiques, Michelin-starred restaurants and fashionable nightlife in Sloane Square, King’s Road, Knightsbridge and Belgravia. Some of our favourite local haunts are Tartine, Geales Chelsea Green, The Chelsea Fishmonger and the Saatchi Gallery.
