The Garden Square Apartment, Chelsea
Hans Place represents one of the most sought-after addresses in Chelsea. Its proximity to Harrods, convenient location, large garden square and famous postcode have made it a catch for the well-heeled since its inception. Jane Austen was a resident, and Prince Charles would attend the square’s Hill House School – the first time an heir to the British throne had been to a civilian school. This beautifully presented spacious apartment is split across two floors and comprises a large master bedroom with a private dressing room and en suite bathroom, a further four double bedrooms and ample entertaining space with two reception rooms that look over the wonderful communal gardens.
