Before wealthy business-types and the Rolling Stones, Charles II ruled the King’s Road. But you won’t require your doublet and breeches in this home. Just around the corner, Sloane Avenue Studio II is slick and glossy. From the flowing, white walls to the brooding, black floorboards to the vases of vibrant blooms, this refined apartment is gloriously contemporary. And if you really want to chime with the times, you only need to take a tour of the restaurants and boutiques of Fulham, Knightsbridge, South Kensington and Chelsea.
Your hostess can more than hold her own in the history stakes. Half Italian, half English, she grew up in Asia before time and tide swept her to Chelsea. She renovates houses for a living, turning the old into the new.
Not of an age
Step into the lift, through the front door on the eighth floor, and settle into whichever plump chair catches your eye first to enjoy the impressive views of London. The sitting room is light on clutter and high on charm, from the rich red rug to the floral artwork above the gilt-edged desk.
The open-plan kitchen is well-equipped for a light bite, or dine à deux at the petite table as the sun dips behind the red bricks below. And when it’s past time for bed, you won’t have to venture far to slip between the sheets.
