A small fishing village that over the centuries has become the symbol of the London aristocracy. For years a reference point for artists, intellectuals and writers who transformed Chelsea into one of the first bohemian centres in Europe.
The streets of Chelsea, lined with stately buildings, impeccable Georgian architecture, antique and design shops, showrooms and auction houses are the faithful mirror of its refined and ultra-chic soul.
The very central and refined neighbourhood of Chelsea is characterized by the presence of one of the most famous shopping streets in the world and by a variety of prestigious properties capable of attracting buyers from all over the globe.
Chelsea is now a much more affluent and refined neighbourhood, while still retaining a certain nonconformist spirit that allows it to differentiate itself from the quiet neighbouring areas of Knightsbridge and Belgravia.
Chelsea is characterised by an interesting variety of architectural genres, from Georgian-style houses, to Victorian townhouses painted in pastel colours, to large mansions near King's Road, also from the Victorian era, to prestigious apartments, to “Arts & Crafts” style houses built in the years between the two World Wars, to the most modern apartments.
