With Made in Chelsea types and investment bankers ruling the roost, Kings Road has lost much of the flair, individuality and spirit of the Swinging Sixties period, but new homes on this world-famous street are a tempting proposition.
Chelsea Galleries was once a hub for poor and popular artists, Whistler was one of them, in the original home of Chelsea Arts Club. The building, with its distinctive Dutch Gable façade, has been redeveloped into a boutique scheme of larger-than-average size homes, with private terraces, courtyard gardens and gated parking.
