ONE OF A KIND CHELSEA HOME WITH SPECTACULAR PROPORTIONS ON MILLIONAIRES ROW AVAILABLE FOR £22 MILLION

Located on Upper Cheyne Row, one of London’s most sought after addresses, sits a former architect’s studio turned c.7,000 sq. ft. super-home. Discreetly tucked away behind a sleek minimalist front exterior, the residence is entered through the main corridor onto a jaw-dropping 2,000 sq. ft. reception room characterised by 4m high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and large glazed sliding doors opening onto an abundance of outside space.

On the market for £22 million with leading estate agents Russell Simpson and Knight Frank, the four-storey home also comprises five bedrooms – one of which is a master bedroom suite complete with stairs onto a private study and roof terrace - kitchen/breakfast room, TV room, family room, gymnasium and fitness studio, patio gardens on the ground floors, as well as secured off-street parking for two cars.

Occupying land once part of the adjacent Our Most Holy Redeemer & St. Thomas More Church (built in the 1800s) the home retains elements of the church’s former rear wing, damaged during a Second World War bombing raid. The home perfectly blends a section of the historic Grade II Listed building with crisp modern design, using full-length glazed windows.

The main living quarters of the home are spaced across two floors. The reception room occupies the majority of the ground floor, complete with access to the East Garden and quaint patio garden. Leading on from the reception room is an open-plan kitchen complete with Miele appliances, breakfast bar and full-length glazed windows opening onto an outdoor courtyard flanked by the historic stone wall.

The first floor comprises four guest bedroom suites fitted with large artist’s studio like roof windows, filling each room with natural light. A fully-fitted TV room complete with in-built surround sound speakers occupies the centre room, whilst the master bedroom suite provides one of the home’s standout spaces. The duplex suite includes full-length windows looking onto the charming stone church wall, whilst a short staircase leads up onto a private study and roof terrace furnished with sun loungers and large sofa.

On the lower ground floor of the property is a fitness studio complete with a mirror-lined wall, ballet bannister and high-tech gym equipment. There is a generous family room also on this level which could, if desired, convert to and accommodate live-in staff quarters.

Located on one of London’s most sought-after addresses, the prospective purchaser will be neighbours with some well-known individuals, such as Dyson Founder & CEO James Dyson and Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, whilst Mick Jagger is close by.

Historically, the street was popular with the city’s cultural set, with perhaps the best-known resident at the time Leigh Hunt (1784-1859), who was a central figure of the Romantic movement in England in the nineteenth century.

The street is also famed for being home to former British Spy, Greville Wynne who played a pivotal role in shaping the events of the Cold War. Wynne used his home at number 19 (adjacent to 21-23 Upper Cheyne Row) to meet with a prominent KGB General who passed on information that averted war between the U.S. and Russia over the Cuban Missile Crisis.

19-21 Upper Cheyne Row is for sale at £22 million through Russell Simpson and Knight Frank, viewings are strictly by appointment only.
