The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which is without question one of the hottest dates in the British horticultural and social calendar, makes a comeback this September after a year's hiatus due to the pandemic. At the same time, the show will see visitors from across the country descend on one of the most the affluent, vibrant and aspirational enclaves of prime central London.
Chelsea is synonymous with red brick mansion apartments and highly desirable Georgian and Victorian terraces. These properties, with their characterful facades and impressive interiors, remain sought after as ideal homes and pieds-à-terre.
Townhouses, mews houses and a selection of modern apartments and new developments ensure the area appeals to a diverse market. Perfect for those seeking elegance and grandeur, or character and sophistication, Chelsea is prized for its proximity to both the City and West End as well as its easy access to the south and west for Heathrow and Gatwick airports and country retreats, such as Berkshire and the Cotswolds.
Often described as providing a sense of village living, Chelsea is perennially popular with families who are attracted by its well-established and independent schools and green space - whether in the form of private gardens or garden squares or a Royal Park. Add an array of independent boutiques and restaurants and it's not difficult to see why Chelsea homes are so highly regarded.
To celebrate the return of the world famous flower show, we have picked some of the best properties currently on the market in what is surely one of London's most fragrant areas.
