Chelsea’s Distinction


This double-height studio apartment is set back from the road and opens up into an impressive development made up of former artist studios. On the market for £1,650,000, with leading prime independent agent Russell Simpson, Bolton Studios offers unrivalled located in one of Chelsea’s finest areas, Bolton Gardens.

Downstairs, the split-level studio apartment opens onto the open-plan-living space, which is a perfect space for entertaining guest or throwing intimate soirees. The apartment has been designed to maximise natural light with double-height ceilings, white-walled interiors and an abundance of windows, in a similar manner to the original art studios. The kitchen comes fully equipped with integrated appliances in stylish finishes. The downstairs living space also houses an additional bathroom and discrete storage spaces.

The upstairs is solely dedicated to the sizeable master bedroom with a newly refurbished ensuite in a contemporary finish. The apartment has been outfitted with the latest technologies including Lutron lighting and iPad-controlled smart technology. Residents will also enjoy 24/7 concierge, as well as sought-after parking permits.

Bolton Studios was originally constructed in the late 19th century on the stretch of land hidden between the sought-after Gilston Road and Redcliffe Road and is a testament to the ingenuity of Victorian architecture.

Chelsea was the artistic hub of London during the Victorian period driving the neoclassical art movement and over the years many different sculptors and painters occupied the studios in the development.

Bolton Gardens was designed by George Godwin, a prolific local architect, who built on the site of the original market gardens creating the distinctive rows of grand stucco-fronted houses, with the tranquil garden at the heart of the area. Nowadays, the area is recognised as a conservation area for its cultural significance and impressive architecture.


Hermione Russell, Sales Negotiator at specialist Chelsea estate agents Russell Simpson, commented: “Bolton Studios is an important reminder of Chelsea’s artistic past and the restoration of the studios has preserved an important aspect of Chelsea’s heritage. It’s a real secret, people walk past and have no clue what is hidden away behind Gilston Road. It would serve as a perfect bachelor pad as it is just moments from the Fulham Road, yet incredibly discrete.”

For those looking to embrace the area’s artistic heritage, nearby Chelsea Arts Club, was founded in 1891 by local artists and is famous for its quirky cartoon drawing façade. The club runs regular exhibitions for members of some of the world’s most exciting artists. Residents can also enjoy the nearby Saatchi Gallery, the current home of Egyptian King Tutankhamun’s treasures.

Moments from the seclusion of Bolton Studios is the bustling Fulham Road, one of Chelsea’s premier streets offering a superb range of local amenities, designer clothing stores and boutique cafes. The Kings Road also runs parallel to Fulham Road and is well known for its boutique shops and lively nightlife in the evenings.

Bolton Studios is well connected with Earl’s Court just a four-minute walk away providing access to both the Piccadilly line and District line.

Bolton Studios is on the market at £1,650,000 with viewings strictly by appointment only. For further information, contact Russell Simpson on 020 7225 0277 / www.russellsimpson.co.uk
