Cresswell Place, Chelsea, working with Russell Simpson
When Russell Simpson call I know its going to be a fantastic property. This is a boutique fmaily estate agency that specialise with top Chelsea property, and are the go to for property owners with prime property looking to sell, buy or rent. This house did not disappoint. It was a secluded and very private ‘cottage’, originally a coachhouse, in the heart of the Boltons Conservation Area, on a pretty cobbled mews street in Cresswell Place.
With its own off street parking behind a gated wall in a private courtyard, this is an unusual house. The property had been newly renovated to a high standard. When I visited the house, I wanted to keep the rooms feeling light and homely, making sure that it looked stylish without looking staged. Each item was carefully placed and thought out, creating a look that was simple and colourful. I wanted to keep to more natural textures so used linens for cushions, woods for furniture, and lots and lots of faux flowers to create a countryside feeling. When you are in this house, you forget that you are right in the centre of Chelsea! It is like a country house in the midst of London! So quiet, so away from it all.
Not surprising, this house is now under offer within weeks of coming to the market. Not only because it is a great house, but because Russell Simpson know how to sell houses. The interior photography here was done by Matt Davis and I think you will agree that his photos are great! This isn’t a house that calls for wide angle photography. Matt is a true professional and his images here are showcasing as much of a lifestyle as a property.
