Grade II listed family home on a historic Chelsea street with charming interiors and Thames views.
Entering the house on the ground floor, the front hall leads through to a generous dining room. One side of the room communicates with the galley kitchen, while on the other side a French door opens onto the garden. This floor also includes a pantry and a guest loo.
The first floor contains a magnificent studio or drawing room with double-height ceilings and a high bank of windows looking out over the garden. This room communicates with a library at the front of the house with built-in wooden shelves.
The property includes a second, smaller house at the far of the garden. This contains a studio drawing room, a kitchen and a utility room, a guest loo and a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom.
The second floor contains a bedroom with next-door bathroom. Meanwhile, on the third floor, there is a generous principal bedroom with garden views, as well as a second bedroom or dressing room, and a bathroom. Finally, the fourth floor is entirely occupied by a guest bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and a spacious bathroom with shower and bathtub.
The property includes a large garden with a tiled area for outdoor dining and a lawn rising towards the studio cottage at the rear. It also includes a leasehold garage and vaults for additional storage. Meanwhile, the front of the property is sheltered from the road by a narrow strip of parkland.
The house was built in the late Victorian era by the celebrated Arts and Crafts architect C.R. Ashbee. Originally used artists’ studios, the rooms evoke this historic character with exposed beams and bespoke joinery. At the same time, the house is good condition, blending the traditional and the contemporary to create a characterful interior. Finally, the south-facing rooms at the front of the house enjoy views over the River Thames and the Albert Bridge.
Cheyne Walk is one of the most historic streets in London. Over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries it has been home to numerous celebrated figures, including the writers George Eliot and Bertrand Russell, the painters Dante Gabriel Rossetti and J.M.W. Turner, the actress Elizabeth Taylor and the politician David Lloyd George.
Today, the house is exceptionally well positioned. To the south is the Thames Embankment, with the Albert Bridge leading to Battersea Park. To the north is the King’s Road, with its excellent range of restaurants and shops. In addition, the beautiful Chelsea Physic Garden is just a short walk away.
