Full description

This is a generously proportioned semi-detached family house, situated on one of Chelsea's finest garden squares. It is now in need of some renovation but has the significant advantage of having a planning consent in place for a substantial extension. EPC: E.

The house has clearly been a well-loved home to the current owners who have lived in the property for over 20 years. It is thought that there have only ever been 4 or 5 owners of the house since it was built and its best known former resident was the Actress Dame Sybil Thorndike (1882 – 1976) who was best known for her performances of Shakespeare and George Bernard Shaw. She lived in the property between 1921- 1932 , for which the house now proudly displays a Blue Plaque in her honour.

The house benefits from having high ceilings and an abundance of light throughout. It is centrally located on the Eastern terrace and looks directly onto the private communal garden . The accommodation is well laid out with superb entertaining space that includes a 40ft raised ground floor double reception room featuring two stunning marble fireplaces. There are four double bedrooms and one single bedroom with the principal bedroom suite situated on the first floor overlooking the square.

Furthermore, the house also has consent for a substantial extension under the house to approximately 5,024 sq ft. In addition there is potential to convert the loft and create a further bedroom suite.


Carlyle Square is undoubtedly one of the most sought after and well maintained garden squares in Chelsea and is situated just off the Kings Road. The award-winning gardens are owned by and can only be accessed by the residents of the square. It is also worth noting that the square has a security patrol.

There are good transport links with regular bus services as well as South Kensington (Circle, District and Piccadilly lines) underground station approximately 0.6 miles away and Sloane Square (Circle and District lines) underground station approximately 0.9 miles away (all distances and times given are approximate).
