With the media spotlight on Chelsea for the annual RHS Chelsea Flower show we speak to Armanda Keith, Residential Manager about the recently completed development of four new townhouses in Radnor Walk, Chelsea, SW3.

What was originally on the site?
Originally a dairy yard, the site became home to The Chelsea Pottery in 1952, the studio was styled as an open studio welcoming any potter to come and work or learn. After the potters left in 1994 the site became a large clinic with Café Nero occupying the ground floor.

What is there now?
The site has been completely redeveloped providing two new retail and D1 units, soon to be home to Sticks’n’Sushi and a private clinic, three apartments and four three bedroom townhouses which are to be released to the rental market next month.

The design:
Working alongside architects KSR Architects and Scott Brownrigg, the development has been carefully designed to offer all modern conveniences whilst retaining the look and charm of a classic Chelsea Townhouse to fit in with the streetscape.

With all our developments, whether we are planning to rent or sell we look to provide durable luxury with a modern aesthetic. This design allows our customers to add their own personality to create a home. Our properties attract people who are often looking to move in quickly so it is important that we provide a turn key solution with the flexibility to meet an array of individual tastes and requirements.

Your favourite features:
My favourite feature of the townhouses is the large flexible reception room, when opened up into the main hallway the room fills with light and creates a real sense of space.

Equally the master bedroom suite which includes the bedroom, dressing room and bathroom, creates a wow factor not typically found in Chelsea townhouses.

Rental market:
The rental market remains strong and we have found that there is very high demand for luxury apartments and houses where the attention to detail and specification have been carefully thought out.

The area:
Chelsea continues to be popular with young families, looking to enjoy the buzz of London alongside the tranquillity of the area’s green spaces, Battersea Park is a short stroll away. Radnor Walk is nestled between the heart of the Kings Road and Chelsea Embankment to the South. This stretch of the Kings Road offers fabulous fashion boutiques and great restaurants. Every convenience is catered for with nearby Waitrose and Marks & Spencer, alongside an array of local bars and pubs. The immediate area is undergoing exciting changes with Cadogan currently refurbishing the cinema and Duke of York Square and the arrival of Sticks’n’Sushi in Martin’s Properties Radnor Walk flagship retail space.
