Chelsea is a popular area of Central London which saw house prices rise nearly 13% in 2014. It is bounded to the south by the River Thames, where its frontage runs from Chelsea Bridge along the Chelsea Embankment and Cheyne Walk. Its eastern boundary was once defined by the River Westbourne, which is now in a pipe above Sloane Square tube station.
Chelsea has a number of fashionable shopping areas including The King Road but the area is also steeped in history. Sir Christopher Wren’s Royal Hospital is to the eastern end of Chelsea and from 1850-1880 the western end of Cheyne Walk was an ‘artistic and bohemian colony’ much loved by the pre-Raphaelite movement. Chelsea Football Club, owned by Russian businessman Roman Abramovich, is just outside the western border of the borough.
The modern eastern boundary is Chelsea Bridge Road and the lower half of Sloane Street, including Sloane Square, along with parts of Belgravia. To the north and northwest, the area fades into Knightsbridge and South Kensington, but it is safe to say that the area north of King's Road as far northwest as Fulham Road is part of Chelsea.
The district is part of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Chelsea consists of two main postcodes (SW3 and SW10) but also includes small sections of SW1. The most desirable part of Chelsea to live is around Sloane Square and Knightsbridge tube. Around here, Chelsea meets Knightsbridge. This property market attracts considerable international attention, especially from Russian, Chinese and Middle Eastern property buyers.
