A larger than normal 1,173 sq ft two bedroom apartment on the sixth floor (with lift) of a period, redbrick building with 24 hour porterage just off the King’s Road.

The property The apartment is very light being on the sixth floor with far reaching views over Chelsea and the city of London. In need of refurbishment, the property is currently very generously arranged with a large double reception room and two double bedrooms with two bathrooms.

Subject to Freeholders consent, the apartment could be rearranged to create three bedrooms with two bathrooms and therefore be ideal for family living.

Location Swan Court was built in 1930 and is ideally located just off the King’s Road and therefore close to all the local restaurants and shops including Waitrose and Marks and Spencer just around the corner.

Swan Court sits in between Flood Street and Chelsea Manor Street and is roughly equidistant from Sloane Square and South Kensington underground stations. Battersea Park is just across the Albert Bridge and has approximately 200 acres of open spaces with a stunning lake and numerous sporting facilities.

Building works There is a new lift being installed (there is also a service lift) and upon completion the common parts are scheduled for refurbishment.

Historical Note 112 Swan Court was previously Margaret and Denis Thatcher’s marital home after their marriage in December 1951. It was whilst living in the property that Margaret Thatcher made the momentous decision to return her attention to a career in politics. Her letter above, written from this apartment, makes clear she felt strongly that the best way for her to affect change in legislation was as a politician.
