Want to lead a charmed life? Choose a Chelsea mews
Whether you’re looking to buy or simply researching a mews house for rent, Chelsea is a great lifestyle choice. It was the cradle of cutting-edge fashion in the Sixties.
These days it’s renowned for trendy restaurants and exclusive shopping, from the world-famous Peter Jones department store near Sloane Square to the smaller, independent shops of the King’s Road.
Lucky to live in lovely Clover Mews
Like its lucky, four-leaf namesake, Clover Mews is small in size and delightfully green. Clover’s residents feel truly fortunate to live in this tiny cobbled mews, situated close to Chelsea Physic Garden and a few minutes from Chelsea’s exclusive shops, bars and restaurants. Feeling lucky? A Clover Mews for sale or rent may be as scarce as a four-leaf clover, but you’ll be glad you made your home here.
Henniker Mews, where a star (car) was born
A century ago, Henniker Mews was the birthplace of the Aston Martin car. That’s why this quiet gated, cobbled mews – set in the ‘Chelsea Park/Carlyle’ Conservation Area – proudly carries a plaque in tribute to Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin, who created their iconic motoring brand in a humble garage here. This may be motor history heaven, but choose a Henniker Mews for sale and you won’t need wheels to explore the elegant bars, restaurants, galleries and shops on Kings Road.
Why a Rolling Stone stopped in Elm Park Lane
Looking for an Elm Park Lane mews for sale? You’ll be following in famous footsteps. This lovely mews street was the 1960s home of Rolling Stone Brian Jones, and apparently Beatle John Lennon was a frequent visitor. As Elm Park Lane lies close to the chic shops and restaurants on Fulham Road, it’s easy to understand why it attracted rock star royalty, and it’s still a magnet for mews lovers seeking a home in the heart of Chelsea.
Why botanists love Holly Mews (near Thistle Grove)
Holly Mews is aptly named, thanks to its proximity to London’s oldest botanical garden. However, while Holly Mews’ attractive, white stucco period properties are close to the river and convenient for all the amenities of Chelsea, there isn’t a holly bush in sight. Botanists will be relieved to hear that neighbouring Chelsea Physic Garden has a large Ilex aquifolium tree (yes, that’s the Latin name for ‘holly’). Seeking a Holly Mews house for sale? We can help.
