Architecture – Elizabeth Barroll
A Georgian terraced Garden Square in Chelsea, it was built between 1836-40 on the site of a former market garden, and can claim to have housed many famous names.
Broseley is no stranger to the Square, having successfully completed three complete renovations of these Grade 2 listed houses over the past four years.
This one was totally transformed in 2014 over a period of eighteen months. The project began with building a sub-basement and incorporating a significant glass extension at the back. Tons of earth was shifted, and a metre-thick of new soil was later replaced and topped with grass.
The kitchen was completely re-configured and now provides a natural flow throughout the lower ground floor, which has since become the focal area for family life. An un-used landing area was designed to offer an open plan office overlooking the living room below. Timber floors were fitted, and the main space in the basement has been created into a media room with library and gym area.
We are pleased to understand that the presentation of the house has increased its value.
“Broseley were timely and proactive. The work is beautiful and their efficient follow up shows a really pride and commitment. ”
