Welcome to stardom
For some reason, walking through Chelsea you immediately pick up a swagger, the King’s Road featuring as your very own catwalk. There’s just something in the air that makes you feel a little bit famous. And this swanky two bed flat sits just behind Sloane Square, boasting a to-die-for address and a posh pad to match.
A love affair
Your hosts are as jet set as their address would suggest. Their roots lie in Africa – with your host running a safari company in Zambia (erm, could you have a cooler job?), and your hostess being an artist. Her African-inspired art lines the walls of their London pad.
Enjoy the premiere
The first thing you should do upon exiting Sloane Square tube station is put on oversized sunglasses and look smug. This is where you live now. You’ll find this home in a smart redbrick Georgian mansion block in a beautiful square. Sort of like the ones you’d see in Oliver Twist. You’ll be welcomed by an open-plan living space with beautifully high ceilings. The dining room table has had as an exotic life as your hosts- it’s traveled from New York to Africa, and back to London. Off the dining area is a modern kitchen, complete with granite surfaces. The eclectic mix of London chic and African inspiration is what truly makes this a fusion property with stories hidden in every piece of furniture. You couldn’t ask for a better bedroom experience – both large and offering both double and twin beds, relax in the steaming roll-top bath before you collapse in the huge king-size master bed.
The Hollywood touch
Everything you could want sits on your doorstep at this address. Indulge in the glitz of Sloane Street designer labels, while the Kings Road offers comfortable commercialism with a hint of glamour. Walk up to South Kensington within minutes and consume the culture of the museum district, while Harrods and Harvey Nics sit a 15-minute walk away in Knightsbridge. After all that shopping and sightseeing, you might want to take a break and enjoy a cocktail at one of Chelsea’s prestigious bars.
