CHELSEA: EXCEPTIONAL 1BR W/VIEWS OF THE RIVER THAMES & BATTERSEA PARK

Putney & Wandsworth Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment with stunning views of the Thames and Battersea

1 bedroom flat with stunning views of the river Thames and Battersea Park from both the living room and bedroom. In the entrance hall you’ll notice the wooden panelled walls and hanging chandelier which set the sophisticated tone for the rest of the home. Step into the sitting room and feel your toes against the plush, red rug which lies before the large double sofa (it folds into a sofa bed for guests). Recline and admire the rose bouquet which sits on the fireplace, or the red brocade curtain drapes. Find the lever along the wood panelled wall until it slides to reveal a hidden kitchen, complete with super-slick chrome fixtures and modern appliances. Head into the master bedroom where a muted, teal wallpaper will lull you into a sense of calm. Relax on the king size bed beside the stylish, industrial radiator, and watch the wall-mounted television, or pamper yourself before the floor-ceiling mirrors. Next door in the brand new shower room, enjoy a luxurious power-shower while a fluffy towel heats on the shiny chrome rack.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only

The owner of the apartment is an eye surgeon who’s exacting sense of style is played out all over his stunning Chelsea home – from the sitting room’s crystal chandelier to the original ceiling stucco. He enjoys sailing and diving in far flung destinations.

NICE LITTLE APARTMENT

  • 4 of 5
Delightful little apartment, admirably efficient and perfect for 2 people. The kitchen is like a ship's galley kitchen, not really meant for any major cooking, although we made several pasta meals and I even baked scones! You can't load the dishwasher and throw away the garbage at the same time so this is where admirably efficient becomes cramped feeling!
The location has its pluses and minuses. It is off the tourist track so one gets to be part of a London neighborhood. It is about a 10 minute walk from the Sloane Square underground station but the 170 bus is right around the corner. There is a small convenience store about 5 minutes away but the bigger supermarket is a 15 minute walk. It is 10 minutes by bus to Victoria train station, which is helpful for out of town excursions. It is very near a busy road but with windows closed one does not hear noise.
However, as one previous reviewer said, if it is hot and you open the window, it gets noisy. I spoke to the manager about this and he agreed that a fan might be a good addition to the place so inquire about whether they have added this if going in the summer.

One of the best parts of the experience is the person with whom you book ( Diana) and the manager who meets you there ( Raymond). They were both unfailingly helpful and responsive. Diana particularly deserves praise as she answered my e-mails promptly and was willing to answer all my enquiries prior to booking. This made me feel confident in renting here as I am fairly new to VRBO.

I thought this was excellent value for a London apartment.

A WEEK IN LONDON

  • 5 of 5
The flat in Chelsea was wonderful. For the 2 of us the space was ideal, w/ spacious living and bedrooms along w/ a very useable kitchenette and a modern bathroom. The area was also beautiful w/ interesting homes and an active and attractive, w/ shops and restaurants near the tube. The views of the Thames and Battersea Park were an added bonus.

PERFECT LUXURY

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was perfect! Brilliantly designed to use space without feeling cramped, and there were three of us adults! Loved the fabulous views of the Thames from two rooms, and one black cab ride for around 5£ brought you and your luggage right to the door steps from Sloan Square. We loved the Siemens appliances, the quiet building,loved the bathroom with a bidet toilet seat, fine toiletries, fine linens! We watched television on smart T.vs in both rooms. The washer and dryer were so quiet and did a marvelous job! We look forward to coming back and staying here!

We stayed for a week at this beaufitully finished flat. The fittings were amazing and it was perfect for two people. We had a couple of sunny days and the views over the river Thames were quite original...a real Pagoda planted firmly on the opposite embankment! On rainy days it seemed to float on the river.
There were good bus connections nearby to Sloane Square and Knightsbridge. All in all we were very happy and intend to go back.

Diane was prompt to respond to our emergency request and help us with checking in early and a place to leave our suitcases. We spent 2 weeks in this apartment, in the middle of Chelsea, our favorite part of town. This apartment was recently renovated with a brilliant use of space. They had a good designer taking care of the details. Induction and oven are Siemens. All the dishes are from John Lewis, the flatware is elegant, the convertible table very practical, the views from the big window – the Thames - This place is a dream and all you need. The bed was very comfortable, the linens new, the comforter fluffy and we even got new towels. You can hear some traffic from the main road. We used the washer/dryer perfectly concealed behind paneled doors – detergents and cleaning supplies were provided. We used the Nespresso machine. There was olive oil, salt & pepper in the kitchen. The bathroom was warm, clean and modern with anti-fog mirror. The location perfect! The place perfect! We wish we could have used the safe or the fireplace, just for the charm, since the place was always warm. 2 flat screen TVs. Telephone with restrictions. We will definitely come back to this apartment again.

THIS FABULOUS PLACE HAS IT ALL!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 nights in this gorgeous apartment. Of course the location being across the street from the Thames flowing past was WOW. The place itself has absolute attention to detail for the short-term travellor. It is perfectly set up and the cleanliness and comfort abound.
Bedroom: very comfortable bed, great linens, lots of pillows, warmth, lighting, closet space
Bathroom: first class!
Kitchen: has it all
Living room: charming and comfortable
I would give this home my highest recommendation...plus it is right around the corner from great little restaurants and shopping!!!

Map

Car: not necessary

Traditionally a haunt for the London bohemia, Chelsea is now one of the city’s most affluent areas, with wide, elegant boulevards of period properties. Take a trip to King’s Road and Sloane Square and Avenue, the crown jewel of London haute-couture. In times past it was also a haven to artists, scientists, and many other influential people.

Chelsea was originally known as the “village of palaces” in the 17th Century, the only residents being those in palatial manor houses. Residents included Henry VIII, Sir Thomas More, Elizabeth I, the Duke of Monmouth and the Duke of Beaufort.

On Embankment Gardens’ doorstep you’ll of course find the upscale Chelsea Embankment, with its wide view of the Thames and the elegant Ranelagh Gardens. Further north, explore the shopping delights of King’s Road, and the world famous museums of South Kensington. Central London is accessible in just 20 minutes via the nearby Sloane Square underground station.
