The super-luxury redevelopment of Chelsea Barracks in west London may have begun with a battle involving Prince Charles and the Qatari Royal Family a decade ago but this understated Belgravia scheme is now open for business says The Times. It is said to be one of prime central London’s greenest developments, with 5 acres of landscaping on the 12.5 acres overall and a stand out feature with the 100m vegetable garden.
Will Watson, Head of London at The Buying Solution, comments: “This area of London hasn’t had any housing stock of this calibre before – Chelsea Barracks offers amazing new build quality and incredible facilities and communal spaces, with prestigious Belgravia and Sloane Square on its door step, while also being close to the river. We are seeing clients downsizing from Eaton Square, Eaton Place and Chester Square who recognise the appeal of the large lateral spaces, and no longer want to be in tall narrow houses over six floors. They are selling their houses and generally paying like for like values, so not necessarily gaining sq footage but are drawn to the appeal of lateral living and facilities – they love how easy it is to get to the gym at the bottom of their development and secure parking, especially given for the most these are international buyers with multiple homes. The apartments are achieving in excess of £4,000 per sq ft. For some time this was a large under-utilised area of London – the redevelopment of Chelsea Barracks, with its generous greenery and attractive architecture, has created a connection between Battersea and Chelsea.”
