Private Family Home in SW3’s Hidden Chelsea Park Gardens

09.10.17

Located on the private, quiet enclave off the King’s Road, sits this stunning family home at 74 Chelsea Park Gardens. Boasting a low, wide frame, the property offers light, lateral living space, four bedrooms, a stunning New York style basement and a completely private, west-facing walled garden. Located on the former site of Sir Thomas More’s 16th Century estate, this unique family home is on the market with agents Russell Simpson for £6,500,000.

Constructed in the 1930s, Chelsea Park Gardens is development of Arts and Crafts style houses, inspired by the Garden Suburb movement. With a strong emphasis on trees and greenery, communal areas and cottage-style gardens with informal borders, Chelsea Park Gardens was formerly part of Chelsea Park; itself once part of the estate owned by Sir Thomas More in the 16th Century. Located on the western terrace of Chelsea Park Gardens, No.74 is protected from the street by a leafy communal front garden and has been extensively refurbished by the current owners for modern family living.

Through the front door, the house opens out into an incredible ground floor living space. This lateral open plan area has been carefully divided into a charming country-style kitchen/dining room and a separate, more intimate reception space. Designed with real family living in mind, the space has been finished with smooth wooden flooring, cool neutral colours and traditional-style wood panelled walls, creating a sense of warmth and comfort.

The ground floor opens onto the lush west-facing garden, ideal for lazy weekend afternoons and bathing in the early evening sun. Walled on all sides and totally un-overlooked, this patio garden is a quiet haven away from the bustling crowds and traffic of the King’s Road.

The lower-ground floor of 74 Chelsea Park Gardens has been excavated to create a fantastic multi-use entertaining room as well as a laundry, shower room and plant room. This space has been designed in a New York loft style, with exposed brick and beams, wooden flooring and is currently doubling up as a cinema/entertainment and children’s’ room.

There are four good sized bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms and build-in wardrobes. The master suite and second bedroom are located on the first floor, and the two further rooms are situated on the second floor, including a brightly decorated children’s room. Each bedroom has a peaceful view of either the front or rear garden.

74 Chelsea Park Gardens benefits from superb local amenities and retail offerings, with popular haunts such as The Bluebird and Beaufort House located just around the corner. In terms of education, the area offers an outstanding number of local and international schools, including Cameron House, The Hampshire School and Falkner House. Thomas’s Battersea, where Prince George attends, is also a very short drive away.
