This three-bedroom, two-storey flat is on a leafy street steps from the King’s Road in Chelsea. Originally built during the Georgian period, it was home to an elderly woman who lived in and loved it until her 90s. When we toured the space, it was filled with bright vintage furniture and stacked wall-to-wall with art and books. The property needed a full renovation to bring it up to modern standards and for our clients to enjoy with their family.
It's a second home as the clients live in Dubai but have London roots, so finding this gem of a property to renovate and call a ‘home away from home’ was the perfect score. The entire property including the communal stairs, hallways and carpets all needed to go, so the building was fully renovated (minus the grumpy neighbour’s flat opposite!). We worked with our builders through a long list of work: replacing all the flooring with new carpet and wood flooring; gutting and remodelling both bathrooms; remodelling the master bedroom to create a better flow and more storage; and installing a new kitchen and fully renovated dining and living space.
