Property Of The Week


Prominently positioned on the historic and prestigious Old Church Street is an impressively restored period townhouse, which is the oldest recorded dwelling on the road – dating back to the 18th Century. Noticeable for it’s all white stucco façade and blue plaque, which commemorates the revered actor Judy Campbell, the home, which has been completely rebuilt and restored, is available for sale at £8.95 million through leading prime London agents Russell Simpson.

Originally a public house built in the 1700s, 21 Old Church Street provides an impressive amount of space, over 3,500 square feet, which has been achieved through a considerable extension to the rear of the property, as well as into the basement.

Upon entering, visitors are immediately greeted by an impressive drawing room featuring a bespoke glass chandelier, dark oak flooring, an original fireplace and generous ceiling heights. A cloakroom space is to the right of the entrance door for visitors to store their coats and shoes.

Through a fully-glazed atrium style space, which bears the exposed brick of the original structure, is the open-plan kitchen/dining room, with a large Carrara marble kitchen island. The kitchen has been bespoke designed by Daytrue London and includes integrated Gaggenau appliances throughout.

A bespoke full-size Crittal window, with two double doors, opens onto a stepped garden, which features a raised lawned courtyard, with a water feature and outdoor dining and barbecue area.

On the lower ground floor is a private study that can be shut off for extra privacy, whilst Crittal doors open onto a balcony overlooking the patio area. A cinema/media room and separate children’s playroom, which could also function as a home gym space, are located to the rear of the floor. A guest bedroom suite, which could operate as private staff quarters, utility room, plant room and guest WC are also present.

The principal bedroom occupies the entire first floor, with a magnificent walk-in dressing room and bathroom suite. A Victorian-style bath provides discrete views out onto the street, whilst the bedroom and dressing area benefits from plush carpets and a hanging chandelier to create an exceptional space.

The second floor provides two guest bedrooms separated by a bathroom and the third floor has a split design children’s bedroom and playroom.

Jake Russell, Director at Russell Simpson, comments; “21 Old Church Street has the perfect balance of heritage and modernity that makes it an excellent proposition for a discerning buyer. It is extremely unusual to find a house with such generous room sizes, ceiling heights and natural light, while the attention to detail and quality of the finishing touches is unparalleled. The owners really have thought of everything when completely renovating the property.”

Dating back to 1566, Old Church Street is the oldest recorded street in Chelsea and has had many high-profile residents over the years. One of the most notable was Judy Campbell, who lived at 21 Old Church Street between 1974-2004. She was a successful film and theatre star over a near 70-year career, as well as being widely known as Noel Coward’s muse.

One of London’s most historic patches, directly across from 21 Old Church Street is the former Wesleyan Chapel, which once counted regular attendees such as Queen Victoria I, retail magnate Peter Jones and Thomas Carlyle. Just behind is the site of the former Chelsea Porcelain Factory that operated in the area between 1743 to 1770 and produced some of the world’s most valuable collections. On the corner of Old Church Street is Chelsea Old Church that was first built by Sir Thomas More and bears his statue at the front of the building.

21 Old Church Street is on the market for £8.95 million with viewings strictly by appointment only.
