REFURBISHMENT/DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY FOR SALE
A rare opportunity to acquire two houses on one of Chelsea’s most prestigious garden squares.
The principal house is an elegant Grade II listed stucco fronted townhouse on the west side of Wellington Square which is being sold together with an independent, low built, wide house situated directly behind. This separate building is accessed through a discrete entrance on Smith Street.
Both houses are being sold as a pair and offer an excellent opportunity to secure two properties with refurbishment potential, subject to all the necessary permissions.
Wellington Square extends to approx. 2,583 sq.ft (240 sqm) and benefits from a classic first floor drawing room, with two full length French doors opening out to overlook the garden square. The house provides flexible accommodation to suit an incoming purchaser’s needs.
The house’s on Wellington Square were completed in the early 1850’s which coincided with the death of The Iron Duke, The Duke of Wellington. The square was named after him as he lay in state at the nearby Royal Hospital. This famous square has been home to many illustrious actors, artists, politicians and writers. Most notably A. A. Milne, the author of Winnie the Pooh as well as Herbert Asquith before he became prime minister in 1904 and was even the fictional home of Ian Fleming’s James Bond!
Wellington Square is a non-through way square, ideally located to the south of the King’s Road, with all its shops, boutiques and restaurants, and just a few minutes walk from Sloane Square Underground.
The Courtyard off Smith Street is one of two houses accessed through a private gateway. The house spans approx. 2,184 sq.ft (202.9 sqm) over two floors allowing an abundance of natural light to flood into the house via multiple windows on the first floor. The house is completely unmodernised.
