Chelsea and Fulham are touted as being among London’s most desirable neighbourhoods, not just to live in but also for investment. The area is home to the famous King’s Road, which offers everything from quaint boutiques to amazing dining options. It’s a popular street that has come a long way from originally being used as the King of England’s private road until 1830. These highly revered West End postal codes are well known for their world-class educational institutions, shopping, dining, culture and nightlife; and they continue to attract those who are keen to invest in London property.
If you’ve always dreamt of a London lifestyle, or you want to enrol your children into the British educational system, take a look at this Chelsea Creek apartment development.
Great investment opportunity
UK developer St George (part of the Berkeley Group) is currently presenting an exclusive collection of luxury riverside apartments in Chelsea, ideally located on the north bank of the River Thames. The exclusive neighbourhood has consistently attracted investors and affluent residents due to its close proximity to the River Thames, and to the aforementioned King’s Road. There are many well-known Michelin restaurants, designer boutiques, tranquil green spaces, galleries and exhibitions to attract culture-lovers as well as well-heeled socialites and high-earning tenants.
What does this mean for you? In short, these are ideal conditions for those looking to invest in London properties for attractive returns.
Prime educational location and a community feel
Some of the best educational institutions in London are located in Chelsea and Fulham. With no shortage of nurseries, schools and universities, the educational offerings in the neighbourhood have helped secure the city’s reputation as a leading global centre for education. It’s no surprise that Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge chose to enrol their son Prince George at Thomas’s Battersea school located nearby.
Local events run throughout the year in the area, from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show (the largest flower festival in the world), to Charles Dickens talks and teas, fashion shows at Chelsea Town Hall, and the annual Christmas tree-lighting tradition that runs the length of King’s Road.
Many of London’s best spots – and its hidden offerings – can be found within the coveted SW6 postal code.
