An el­e­gant beauty in Chelsea

Evening Standard - West End Final Extra - ES Homes and Property - - News -

£5.5 mil­lion: some houses are so el­e­gantly un­der­stated that they seem to say: “We have no need to crow.” Take this lovely house in Syd­ney Street, Chelsea, where you’ll also find the church where Charles Dick­ens mar­ried.

With 2,782sq ft of liv­ing space, this home tells a beau­ti­ful restora­tion story across each of its five floors. There’s a be­spoke, skylit kitchen with mar­ble work­tops and a for­mal din­ing room on the lower ground floor. Hand­some ground­floor dou­ble re­cep­tion rooms have open fire­places, crystal chan­de­liers and white­washed oak floors.

The mas­ter suite fills the en­tire first floor, its grand, floor-to-ceil­ing French win­dows open­ing out to bal­conies over Syd­ney Street, while the top floors play host to four more in­di­vid­u­ally de­signed bed­rooms and bath­rooms, all fin­ished in lux­u­ri­ous de­tail. It’s for sale through Rus­sell Simp­son (020 8012 2856).
