Russians, rock stars and royalty

A £6 million mews house on the site of Henry VIII’s manor house

Cheyne Walk in Chelsea has long been a favourite address of Russians, rock stars and royalty. Cheyne Mews, situated to the rear of it, is built on the site of King Henry VIII’s manor house and with the sale of a £5,950,000 mews house there, a purchaser has the opportunity to acquire what agents Chesterton Humberts describe as a “discreet country cottage in the heart of Chelsea”.

Situated next to 26 Cheyne Walk, the entrance to Cheyne Mews bares a Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea plaque that states:

“King Henry VIII’s manor house stood here until 1753 when it was demolished after the death of its last occupant, Sir Hans Sloane. Nos. 19 to 26 Cheyne Walk were built on its site in 1759-65. The Old Manor House garden still lies beyond the end wall of Cheyne Mews and contains some mulberry trees said to have been planted by Queen Elizabeth I”.

 

A second plaque – on the opposite wall – gives further instructions to residents and reads:

 

“Caution: All drivers of vehicles are directed to walk their horses while passing under this archaway.  – By order”.

Here, indeed, is a mews with history and here, also, is a most unusual mews house. The 1,819 square foot house includes accommodation over three levels with 3 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms, a roof terrace and a 32-foot west facing garden. There is also “potential for further extension subject to planning permission” and whenever you need to borrow a cup of sugar, it will certainly result in some interesting encounters.
