Seamlessly combining high-end apartment living with the rich history of the Lots Road Power Station, Chelsea Waterfront is a unique development in an unrivalled location.
Indeed, from its prominent position on one of the Thames’ best vantage points, Chelsea Waterfront offers an unparalleled lifestyle. The idyllic riverside location and carefully crafted water gardens, designed by renowned landscape gardener Randle Siddeley, give a sense of serenity not often found in central London. And yet a short walk takes you to the vibrant King’s Road’s tantalising array of restaurants and shopping outlets.
Alongside this superb location, the colourful backstory of the Lots Road Power Station continues to fuel interest from around the world. “The historic power station certainly gives Chelsea Waterfront a very distinctive character that is simply not achievable at most other new-build developments” says Robin Gevell, Senior Marketing Manager at Hutchison Property Group. Built in 1904, the one-time largest power station in the world played a pivotal role in providing power for London’s transport infrastructure right up to the 1990s. Along the way it even helped play an unusual part in the early development of British radio with its towering chimneys supporting an array of radio antennas.
However, Chelsea Waterfront is not one for resting on the laurels of its past. Now, the colossal steel-framed structure is being renovated to host an enviable selection of amenities to complement the development. In keeping with the revival of this historic monument and framing the development as a whole will be the masterful positioning two cutting-edge sleek towers designed by starchitect Sir Terry Farrell.
Underpinning all of this are Chelsea Waterfront’s apartments. The contemporary apartments have been designed with spacious open-plan living-dining areas that allow for entertaining and relaxation in a setting of luxury. “The quality of the accommodation needs to be noticeable from the minute our residents step through the door”, explains Robin. “To achieve this, we use only the finest materials throughout, from solid wood cabinets and joinery right through to marble surfaces in the bathrooms”.
The homes have also been designed to make the most of their position on a sweeping curve of the river. Large floor-to-ceiling windows not only amplify light, but also offer panoramic vistas of the London skyline. Most also come with a balcony or outside space so the breath-taking views can be enjoyed al fresco.
Extra care has also been taken to ensure the feeling of luxury is not confined to the apartments. “It’s become commonplace for high-end developments to have a concierge service included, but we wanted to take things a step further”, Robin says. “As well as all the normal trappings such as travel arrangements, dry cleaning, room service etc. Chelsea Waterfront’s 24-hour service will also include more bespoke assistance including party planning, interior design and much more.”
Chelsea Waterfront offers 434 luxury apartments set over 10 buildings. Apartments are available now from £1.4 million. Viewings can be arranged by contacting the London sales office number on +44 (0) 20 7352 8852.
