Unique Four-Story Chelsea Fixer-Upper For SALE in London
Friday 25 August 2017
A Four-Story Chelsea Fixer-Upper With a History of Colorful Inhabitants is currently on sale nestled in the heart of London’s stylish Chelsea district is a unique living space with a history of storied residents.
Former Vogue editor Beatrix Miller was the most recent celebrity occupant—she used it as her London residence until her death in 2014.
Previous inhabitants included an eccentric heiress and the artist who built the home that would also serve as his studio.
The Grade II listed, mannerist style property still features the original studio flat on the ground floor and a north-facing painter’s studio.
In 1925, heiress Marion “Joe” Carstairs bought the home. Carstairs regularly dressed as a man and had numerous affairs with high-profile women, including Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich and Oscar Wilde’s niece, Dolly, according to Ms. Askew. Well known for her fondness of penguins, she even kept a few of them in the garden for a short time.
What ever you planning requirements here at 4dplanning we can assist you minus the penguins.
