Overview

About the property

Wonderful Sunny 1 Double Bed Relaxed Home In Fashionable Chelsea With Garden.

This is a new, beautifully renovated charming one double bedroom quiet ground floor home with all it’s original features intact. It has a bright, elegant reception room with dining table for 6, large T.V. and WiFi. There is a large sunny separate fully equipped kitchen. Both reception room and kitchen have sliding folding oak doors fully opening up the rooms onto the sunny private patio garden where you can have a candlelit supper on a warm evening.

The location of this property makes the flat quite unique: It is in a very up-market area of London, just off the fabulously expensive and renowned Cheyne Walk (runs along the river) and literally minutes from the legendary Kings Road and some of the best shops, cafes, bars and pubs. If you enjoy walking, there are some great walks on both sides of the river and the beautiful Battersea Park is a 10 minute walk away. In the summer it is great fun ambling around watching groups playing softball and having picnics or using the Park restaurant and enjoying concerts. There is a docking station with Barclays (Boris) bikes to hire just around the corner from the flat. There are very many docking stations around London where you can drop the bikes off once you are tired!

The bus service on the Kings Road takes you everywhere you will want to go and it is such a fun way of seeing London from the top deck! But if you prefer taxis, The Victoria & Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum are a 10-minute taxi ride away, while London's major tourist attractions, such as Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Big Ben, Tower of London and exclusive Knightsbridge/Sloane avenue shopping are 15 minutes from the flat by taxi. The nearby (5 minutes) Imperial Wharf Station has direct trains to Clapham Junction (three minutes) and Westfield Shopping Centre (six minutes). The links from Clapham Junction take you directly to Victoria (Buckingham Palace) in five minutes and 45 minutes to Windsor Castle. Imperial Wharf also connects in one stop/five mins to West Brompton which gives access via the District line to the whole City.

Transport to and from the airports is very easy.

HEATHROW: A 6 minute bus (C3) or a taxi to Earls Court tube station and then a direct tube to Heathrow taking approx 38 minutes.

GATWICK: A 9 minute taxi ride to Victoria train station and then the Gatwick express which runs every 15 minutes and takes 30 minutes.

Just around the corner from the flat is the Chelsea Harbour Hotel and Marina. It has a gym, swimming pool and Spa which you can use for a charge per day or for a month (worth it if you stay for more than 4 days!). It also has an elegant bar/restaurant where you can sit on the balcony overlooking the boats in the Marina. Next to the hotel is the very well known Chelsea Harbour Design Centre with all it's fabulous home design/fabric shops + coffee/snack bars. Two minutes away are two antique/furniture auction houses. One of them, Lots Road Auction House, is very well known in London and has an auction every Sunday with viewings Wednesday evening through till Sunday.

A minute's walk from the flat is the famous 606 jazz club where you can have supper or a drink whilst listening to an eclectic selection of musicians.

If you would like to play golf, there is a Public Course in the beautiful surroundings of Richmond Park. An 18 hole and 9 hole full size courses. Weekends should be booked in advance.

There is also a course at Cobham in Surrey called the Silvermere Golf and Leisure Ltd. It is approx 17 miles by car or by train from Imperial Wharf/Clapham Junction.

This apartment is in the perfect location for famous international cultural and sporting events such as:

• St Patrick's Day

• Virgin Money London Marathon

• RHS Chelsea Flower Show

• Royal Ascot

• FA Cup Final 2016

• Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships

• Hampton Court Palace Flower Show

• Totally Thames Festival

About Ann Louise Stebbing

The flat took a year to renovate but since finishing it a short while ago, we have moved to the south coast most of the time as we love sailing and living beside the water. We will still really enjoy coming up to London when the flat is empty. Having lived in London most of our adult lives, we love coming back to visit friends and potter around our 'village'.

Ann Louise Stebbing purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Ann Louise Stebbing chose Kensington and Chelsea

The flat is very well positioned in Chelsea as it is close to all amenities but is in a very quiet village-like peaceful part of Chelsea with the River Thames so very close. There is a small pretty park around the corner with the bigger park - Battersea Park - close by.

What makes this apartment unique

Home from home...settle straight in and relax as quickly as we do...make a cup of tea or pour a cold glass of wine and sit in the garden with all the doors folded back.

A lovely flat in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here

The flat was well located for all our needs with the Kings Road and it's buses within a few minutes walk and a great local pub the Chelsea Ram less than 5 minutes away.There is also secure parking outside the zone available in Edith Grove.

The next few comments are suggestions not criticisms

We would have liked bed side tables in the bedrooms,the mugs provided were a little to large and smaller cups and saucers would have been ideal

We did struggle with the size of the bathroom and the closing of the fridge door to ensure no frosting.The light in the fridge should be renewed and some of the kitchen doors were difficult to secure.There were no scissors in the kitchen.We stress these are minor items for us but the property is offered at the top of the rental scale.

Finally and this was a big problem for us the folding doors to the patio and outside eating/relaxing are we did not use due to the screaming and shouting of two children close by.we could not open the doors due to the racket which went on sometimes until 11 at night.Children do of course make noise that we accept but this was a disgrace and no attempt was made by the parents to take control

This must be a terrible problem for the residents particularly the nice lady living in the flat above

Beware any future tenants !

Charming Chelsea flat

  • 5 of 5

The flat is stylish and comfortable, with good quality fuurniture and fittings. It is also very light and sunny, with large folding glass doors from the living room and kitchen into the small private patio. It is situated on a quiet street close to the river. Good restaurants and pubs are nearby.

nice, but off the beaten track and quite small

  • 3 of 5

the apartment was cozy, but the bathroom was really almost claustrophobic, literally the size of two phone booths. Difficult to reach items on the upper shelves of the kitchen. The nearest tube station was more than a mile away. The neighborhood was quiet, but not very convenient to grocery stores, etc. I'm afraid we expected more for the price we paid.

This flat in Chelsea was a wonderful home away from home for us. Beautifully presented. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The flat is in a lovely area, close to the river and underground station. The bed was very comfortable and the property in a very quiet area so great for sleeping. Also spotless!

We loved the elegant furnishings - was lovely to come home to after being out and about all day.

We would definitely love to stay again on our next trip to London.

Exactly as described...

  • 5 of 5

My stay here was exactly as expected. It's located in a quiet neighborhood, but close (walking or transit) to the hustle and bustle of the city. The flat is comfortable and clean. It's small, but so functional. I was the only one there, but it would easily accommodate two people. My favorite part was the deck. I spent every chance I could out there. Communication with this host was great. If you're looking for something that will give you a bit of downtime while in the city, I highly recommend this flat.

It was a fantastic place to rent. Really enjoyed staying there!

  • 5 of 5

Everything on the listing was just as expected. No surprises. The appartment had everything we needed. It is very cute. We were lucky to have great weather and had breakfast everyday with the doors all open on the patio. What a nice way to start the day. As I said, the appartment was perfect but, the equally important part was that the owner and contact people were just great during the whole aspect of the renting and staying there. They were extremely accommodating. They had great communication and customer service. We would highly recommend renting to others and for sure would stay there again ourselves.
