Of course it does. We here at Plum Guide have scoured our collection with a fine tooth comb to gather together the very best Chelsea luxury apartments for you. Enjoy...which you will.
For the whole family: La Famiglia
Our grand Kensington La Famiglia home has something special to offer for the whole family. Like something straight from Grand Designs, this four bedroom design home is incredibly modern without being alienating. Innovative yet comfortable, this is a remarkable home for your remarkable family (when they're all getting along). An architectural dream with some really unique features – from the wall to wall glass conservatory, which allows sunlight to stream in from every angle, to the living room’s futuristic fireplace – this home is unforgettable. And to top it all off, the property has a huge communal garden, ideal for a lovely summer picnic or a ball games.
For the traditionalist: Mirror, Mirror On the Wall
For the more traditional traveller, Mirror, Mirror On the Wall might the best Chelsea luxury apartment of them all. Exuding classic British elegance, this one bedroom home boasts a luxurious king size bed to wake up in, a relaxing bath tub to unwind in and a whole lot more (but we don't want to spoil it all for you). What we love most, though, is the period design running through every room – the gold and silver mirrors provide a real sense of space and the watercolour paintings bring a quintessentially English charm.
For The Nature Enthusiast: Garden Apartment
Nature enthusiasts certainly won’t be disappointed by the aptly named one bedroom Garden Apartment. This is a perfect spot for anyone visiting London to attend the city's annual Chelsea Flower Show. Boasting a traditional country kitchen with a modern Scandinavian-style twist, this newly renovated one bedroom home is full of rustic flourishes. There's a log fire to nestle up next to on a cold winter's evening (and there's a towpath just a two minute walk away for a warm summer's evening too). We should add, though, the apartment really comes into its own when the concertina oak doors open to reveal its beautiful patio and herb garden. Just delightful.
For a special occasion: Chelsea Country House
Perfect for bigger parties, Chelsea Country House is filled with a rustic but elegant charm. Nestled amongst the grand mansions of Chelsea, along one of the neighbourhood's picturesque mews, this quirky five bedroom house has enough room for everyone (well, everyone you want to invite). For a quieter night, cosy up in front of the living room fire with a book from the home's extensive library. For a livelier one, book out the music studio (which is available on request). In this home, you're just a short walk away from the Thames, so make the most of London's milder evenings with a wander along it.
For a romantic getaway: Sweet Dreams
Primely located between Sloane Square, the V&A and the King’s Road, Sweet Dreams is a cosy home perfect for a romantic getaway. Its softly decorated interiors are expertly put together and the masses of natural light through the vast windows give a great sense of space and openness.
Another great option for the couple or solo traveller is Chelsea Chic. Tasteful and elegantly decorated, this spacious one bedroom home is a comfortable London base to return home to after a busy day of exploring the galleries and boutiques nearby. Come evening, there's a private balcony where guests can enjoy a few glasses of wine before heading out to your reservation at one of the great restaurants nearby.
For the serious luxury lover: Choreography
Moving on to the most luxurious of Chelsea luxury apartments now as we reach Choreography. With interiors by the same designers as those who decorated Annabel's, expect big things from this home. Amongst so many other spectacular things here, you'll find two living rooms, one for lounging and one for socialising...naturally. And the rooftop terrace, with its incredible views, really is the icing on the cake. This is a perfect spot for those keen to explore the Kensington neighbourhood.
For the glamorous lot: Chelsea Glam
For the more glamorous type, make like a movie star and live the high life in our Chelsea Glam mansion. (Oh, go on. You know you want to.) Everything about this place screams decadence. From the grandiose banquet table, which seats 14 guests, to the opulent four poster beds, to a living room that would rival the Kardashians', this is pure Hollywood glamour in the heart of Chelsea, and a rather fitting home to end our list of Chelsea luxury apartments.
