Cadogan

The historic estate shaping a 21st-century Chelsea

The property management company Cadogan began an association with Chelsea 300 years ago and it now overseas the 93-acre estate that encompasses both Chelsea and Knightsbridge. An unflagging commitment to the careful preservation of the estate’s rich history lies at the heart of Cadogan’s management strategy, while it continues investing in Chelsea’s future vitality and long-term success. Chelsea is one of London’s best loved neighbourhoods, internationally famous for its vibrant mix of cultural attractions, independent boutiques and international flagships set against a backdrop of beautiful homes, elegant streets and verdant gardens.

 

Chelsea is a hot spot for extraordinary artistic endeavour, home to the world-renowned Saatchi Gallery, provocative Royal Court Theatre and illustrious Cadogan Hall. It has always been a haven for artists, designers, musicians and writers, from The Rolling Stones and Vivienne Westwood to Oscar Wilde, Whistler and Mary Quant. Cadogan seeks to continue its championship of past, present and future music, art and fashion revolutionaries, proudly sponsoring the Mary Quant exhibition at the V&A and preserving and revitalising the unique character of the King’s Road.

 

Commissioned by Charles, 1st Earl Cadogan in the 18th century, Sloane Street is now where the fashionable come to see and be seen. Stretching from Knightsbridge to Sloane Square, it epitomises London luxury as one of the world’s most exclusive shopping runways with its glittering flagship stores including Balenciaga, Giorgio Armani, Hermès and Tom Ford.

Commissioned by Charles, 1st Earl Cadogan in the 18th century, Sloane Street is now where the fashionable come to see and be seen. Stretching from Knightsbridge to Sloane Square, it epitomises London luxury as one of the world’s most exclusive shopping runways with its glittering flagship stores including Balenciaga, Giorgio Armani, Hermès and Tom Ford.

 

In partnership with the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, Cadogan has begun enchanting Sloane Street’s public realm, upgrading it to create a greener, more elegant boulevard experience. 2019 also saw the opening of The Belmond Cadogan Hotel, with food from inspiring young chef Adam Handling, along with wellness paradise, Urban Retreat at The White House, its first standalone spa in Britain.

 

Parallel to Sloane Street is Pavilion Road, now Chelsea’s ‘village heart’, with butcher, baker, greengrocer, cheesemonger and several restaurants, including The Sea, The Sea, fishmonger by day, seafood and champagne bar by night. The finishing touch to Pavilion Road is London’s first ‘edible trail’, encouraging visitors and residents to forage and experience sustainably grown produce that changes seasonally, ranging from pineapples to pomegranates. The produce is grown in pots, each with a QR code that can be scanned to give information and delicious recipe ideas.

Just a stone’s throw away, Duke of York Square hosts a variety of stores, showcasing affordable luxury, including flagships for Aesop, Miista, Dermalogica and Sunspel, along with restaurants and an artisan Fine Food Market every Saturday. At the square’s heart is the architecturally ground breaking, buzzing restaurant, Vardo, a new concept from the team behind the popular Caravan and with a roof terrace overlooking King’s Road. Vardo was originally a competition for young architects, run by Cadogan with Architects Journal to champion modern architecture in a heritage environment.

Through its active stewardship, Cadogan has nurtured Chelsea’s heritage and character for 300 years. Over the next three centuries, it aims to encourage its evolution, while preserving its history and identity.
