Featured by the Mail Online last week as a “try before you buy home”, a £14.5 million house on Justice Walk in Chelsea provides a stark example of how super-prime property prices have soared since the 1990s.

 

Bought by property developer Graham Bourne and his wife Sylvia for £2.8 million in 1998, The Court House was subsequently the subject of a £2 million renovation. The couple then purchased an adjoining cottage in 2005 and placed both on the market for £10.6 million in 2006. Now connected by a courtyard garden, the combined offering is again for sale for £14.5 million or to rent at £10,000 per week.

Built in the early 18th century, the 5,588 square foot main house was originally Chelsea’s court house and jail. It includes a vast double height drawing room that has the feel of an artist’s studio, further reception spaces and five bedroom suites. The secondary residence provides an additional 1,290 square foot of accommodation over four levels.

 

Massively tall compared to its neighbours, The Court House has a fascinating history. Situated in a street named after Sir Henry Fielding, a blind magistrate who lived nearby, the court was the scene where drunkards, highwaymen and tax dodgers were tried. Those found guilty were then sent in chains to prison ships on the River Thames for transportation to the colonies. The building was subsequently converted into a wine warehouse and subsequently studios for artists and architects.

 

The Court House is available through Russell Simpson.

    1. This house does the rounds so often. It is in a great location and has wonderful rooms but if you are buying in the £10 to £15 million range, you are likely to need security, etc. It is in an alley way and that is perceived to be quite dangerous by the foreign buyers who can afford it.
