CHELSEA PENTHOUSE WITH RIVER VIEWS ON THE MARKET FOR UNDER £1 MILLION

Located on the quaint riverside street, Embankment Gardens, sits a prime two-bedroom top floor apartment, complete with a spacious rear terrace overlooking the gardens of Royal Hospital Chelsea. On the market for £825,000 with prime London agents Finlay Brewer, the property also benefits from spectacular views of the River Thames and across to Battersea Park.

Teresa Brewer, Partner at Finlay Brewer, commented: “Homes of this type are becoming increasingly rare in central London. The availability of a top floor apartment in Chelsea, by the River Thames, for under £1 million is a fantastic opportunity. In need of some updating and with the potential to extend to the rear, subject to obtaining the necessary permissions, this is perfect for someone looking to create their own space and style.”

Extending over 646sq. ft., the penthouse, situated within a 19th century red brick mansion house, comprises two bedrooms with river views, reception room, kitchen, bathroom and roof terrace, which wraps around the rear. Subject to planning permission and freeholders consent, there is space to extend the home onto the terrace, which could expand the living area or create a new room, dependent on the owner’s requirements.

The collection of buildings that line Embankment Gardens were some of the first buildings constructed along the Chelsea Embankment, upon its completion in 1874. Designed by Sir Joseph Balzegette, the embankment was one of the great engineering achievements of the Victorian era.

Over one mile long, Chelsea Embankment was built to reduce the River Thames to a uniform width of 700 feet, to tame the water flow and reduce flooding. The newly constructed houses and mansion blocks replaced many of the wharfs, pubs and businesses located along the river front, which transformed the area from a commercial centre to a residential destination.

Perfectly located, the home at Embankment Gardens is a 10-minute walk to the retail boutiques and restaurants of the King Road’s, whilst Sloane Square is 15-minutes, connecting to central London via the District and Circle lines. Chelsea Physic Garden is a stone’s throw away, whilst the expanse of Battersea Park is a short stroll across Albert Bridge.
