You might think you know all there is to know about Chelsea, but forget the explosive drama and expensive champagne you have seen on TV because this area offers so much more!
With average house prices of a little over £2million, buying in Chelsea certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted, however, with small-town vibes and big city convenience, this vibrant area combines everything you would look for in city living and also allows for the quiet life too!
One of the most famous areas in Chelsea would be The Kings Road, the street is globally famous for its luxury stores including Peter Jones and Calvin Klein as well as possibly the poshest Ryman’s you’ve ever seen – visitors come from far and wide to visit one of London’s most popular shopping districts. It’s also really easy to take a break from the hustle and bustle of shopping, many of the residential streets have quaint gated parks brimming with trees and luscious grass making it easy to forget you’re in one of the world’s busiest cities.
Whilst being in London, Chelsea has the feeling of being a town of its own, the atmosphere remains a little more relaxed than some central London locations, making it the perfect place to live if you’re travelling further into London for work. Chelsea to Oxford Street will take you around 40 minutes on public transport or 20 minutes if you fancy a pedal through Hyde Park on your bike – now wouldn’t that be a commute to work!
