At the heart of property manager Cadogan’s dynamic management strategy is an unflagging commitment to the careful curation and preservation of the rich, 300-year history of the Estate’s 93 acres, which span an area encompassing Knightsbridge and Chelsea, plus continued investment in the future vitality, growth and long-term success of the area.
Chelsea is renowned for its unique mix of cultural attractions, beautiful homes, international flagship stores, independent boutiques, exclusive hotels, restaurants, cafés and bars, set against a backdrop of elegant streets and beautiful green spaces. Today, the Estate comprises 3,000 flats, 200 houses, 300 shops, over 30 restaurants, cafés and pubs, 500,000 square feet of office space, eight hotels, seven schools, five churches and around a dozen stunning gardens, which cover 15 acres in total. It has long been a haven for artists, designers, musicians and authors, from The Rolling Stones to Vivienne Westwood, artist Whistler, Oscar Wilde and creator of Dracula, Bram Stoker, who have all lived and breathed the area.
