Old Church Street Property Renovation

Will you rise to the challenge? Baker’s House on Old Church Street seeks redevelopment

LONDON, 28th February 2017 – Available for sale through JLL is an impressive four-bedroom home on Old Church Street for £4,750,000. Requiring a full renovation, this characterful 2,013 sq ft terrace is a beautiful example of Georgian architecture. Spread over four floors, including a studio and vault, this prime property offers a plethora of opportunities for its new owner, and comes with planning permission to enlarge the property by approximately 1,000 sq ft.

Located at the southern end of Old Church Street, between Chelsea Embankment and the Kings Road, this property comes with full planning permission and is not listed, so it is perfect for a family looking to create their own grand design, or a developer for onward sale. Recently granted planning permission (December 2016), the council has approved plans for the creation of a further basement level to the main house and studio.

Giles Cook, Director at JLL, comments: “For those happy to roll up their sleeves, Old Church Street is a brilliant opportunity for someone to create a beautiful family home. Whilst taking on a project can be daunting, it does have its benefits, from creating a tailor-made home to paying less stamp duty, as the purchase price is lower than the value of the finished article. Priced at £4.75m, once works are complete, in line with planning permission and to a high standard, I would expect it to achieve circa £7,000,000. Whilst we are in a slowing market, demand for properties that require modernisation remain, as these are in short supply, thus early viewing is advised.”

The new layout, as submitted by the property’s current owner, sees the ground floor transformed into a large entertaining area, with reception and lounge plus garden room. The lower ground floor which is home to two bedrooms, and bathroom, becomes a large kitchen and dining room, with family room to the rear. This floor will also provide access to the newly built basement, where a large gym, shower room and storage area is planned.

Currently there are two reception rooms and a guest bathroom occupying the first floor, but there are plans for this level to become a dedicated luxurious master suite, with a dressing room and en-suite. Finally there are two double bedrooms situated on the top floor, with plans to create a further bathroom.

To the back of the garden is a large studio, and in the approved planning permission this will be extended in to a new basement, where the current owner has proposed a private cinema. Whilst in need of a complete overhaul, there are a number of period features including cast-iron railings, parquet flooring, sash windows and original fireplaces.

Old Church Street is one of Chelsea’s most eclectic streets, and has been home to a number of notable residents including, Augustus John, Kate Middleton and Tamara Ecclestone. It is also where the Art’s Club is located, along with Manolo Blahnik’s studio. It is a short walk from the boutiques and restaurants on the Kings Road.

The property is a 20 minute walk from Sloane Square Station (Zone 1, Circle and District line) and a seven minute walk from Cadogan Pier where the Thames Clipper service can be found linking Chelsea to Putney in the west and the City and Canary Wharf in the east. There are also a number of bus services located on the Kings Road.

National Army Museum Building in Chelsea

• £23.75 million new museum unveils exciting new contemporary identity
• New website offers online hub to National Army Museum’s world-renowned collection
• Museum opens on 30 March 2017 with five bright new galleries

Today, 28 February 2017, the National Army Museum rolls out its vibrant new brand and website. Launching in conjunction with the redevelopment of the Chelsea site (supported by HLF), the brand reflects a stronger and more focused identity.

Following an extensive review of the existing National Army Museum brand, the museum set out to transform perceptions of a dark and austere military museum to a modern, bright, engaging and relevant space fit for the 21st century.

Working with creative agencies Small Back Room, Premm Design, and ABG Design, the new National Army Museum brand is reflected in the physical museum, it’s website and has influenced designers across the project in every aspect, from permanent gallery displays and public spaces, to interior design and signage.

‘We are a museum whose story is both historic and of the moment. Not a day goes by without it featuring in the media; this is a unique and special position,’ says Genevieve Adkins, Assistant Director of Public Programmes.

‘The story is controversial, thought-provoking, sad, inspiring and, at times, amusing. Our role is to be more than a museum. We provide a space where audiences can reflect on the role of the army in society and the connection we, as citizens, have with it both historically and today.’

‘We strive to talk about our subject in ways that is at once insightful, sharing, conversational, stimulating and above all real and relevant. We want to inspire conversations, not just questions and answers, and support genuine and meaningful encounters with our story for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. The new brand encapsulates this position.’

The design approach to the brand has been driven by colour, materials and textures found within the army. A diverse colour palette of energy and vibrancy reflecting the bright medal ribbons and regimental colours have replaced the traditional reds, dark greens, browns and greys. Metal colours reflect polished medals themselves and convey service and the value of that service. These colours and materials sit at the heart of the new brand and will be visible throughout the new museum building. Normandy green, the corporate colour, gives a modern, fresh and approachable aesthetic, yet is firmly rooted in the army and British traditions.

This Grade II listed flat has gone through a few mutations before its recent refurbishment by London Atelier. Once the residence of Oscar Wilde, the house had been unimaginatively divided into flats with most of its interesting and original features either hidden or removed.

Chelsea Town House – 5 Jun 2013
Moxon Architects have completed a grade 2 listed house conversion in Chelsea. The driver for this scheme has been to treat the existing structure as a geometric guide for the setting out of new material and spatial interventions. The space has been radically reconfigured throughout, to provide a fewer number of larger and better rooms, with additions to the top and bottom of the house increasing its volume by over a quarter.
