Some houses are so elegantly understated that they seem to say: “We have no need to crow.”

Take this lovely house in Sydney Street, Chelsea, where you’ll also find the church where Charles Dickens married.

With 2,782 sq ft of living space, this home tells a beautiful restoration story across each of its five floors.

There’s a bespoke, skylit kitchen with marble worktops and a formal dining room on the lower ground floor.

Handsome ground-floor double reception rooms have open fireplaces, crystal chandeliers and whitewashed oak floors.

The master suite fills the entire first floor, its grand, floor-to-ceiling French windows opening out to balconies over Sydney Street, while the top floors play host to four more individually designed bedrooms and bathrooms, all finished in luxurious detail.

It is for sale for £5.5 million through Russell Simpson (020 8012 2856).
