Press Release: Italian Success Story in Chelsea
Wed 19 May 2010
Chelsea FC are back to winning ways inspired by manager Carlo Ancelotti, but they are not the only Italian success story in SW6. A unique property in a hidden Italian-designed enclave in Chelsea is being marketed by estate agent Marsh & Parsons.
The largest property in the "Italian Village" at Chelsea Studios is on the market at 1,595,000. Designed by Italian architect Mario Manenti in 1925 and modeled on a private estate near Florence, Chelsea Studios was originally built for a community of artists. The three bedroom house offers a large and lateral living area (more than 2,000 sq ft over two floors), and the appeal of the light and open space would have had for artists is clear.Alex Lyle, manager of the Fulham office of Marsh & Parsons, said: "There is nothing quite like Chelsea Studios in London. Set around courtyards and gardens, the Italian Village is a private and tranquil estate, but in the very heart of SW6. Every property has a different design and feel. With Fulham Broadway station just five minutes away and a bus to Knightsbridge outside the front gate, its in an ideal, central location."
The owner, who bought the property with her husband in 2002, said: "Chelsea Studios has such a special feel its like a secret garden and most people who visit say they never knew it existed. You dont have to be an artist to buy here these days, but there are still artists resident and, in many ways, the estate has an eclectic, almost bohemian feel. Its very much a community, which you dont find very often these days in London."
She added: "The property is within touching distance of Chelseas Stamford Bridge, but you would have no idea a match is being played there."
