On the market with Russell Simpson for £16 million is the ideal home for a football-club-owning oligarch  — a Russian dacha in Chelsea.The “unique” property was designed by architect F E Williams and completed about 100 years ago.

In Russia, dachas are usually second homes outside of the city, where owners can get away from the hustle and bustle to reconnect with nature. This property, however, is still in London, just a short distance from the Thames, and one mile from Stamford Bridge, and near Cheyne Walk — where Roman Abramovich used to live. It could be the perfect home from home for one of the capital’s 100,000 Russia-born residents.
