The Lucan in London’s Chelsea Blends the Past with the Present

Property of the Week: The Lucan, Chelsea’s latest residences block, features a uber-luxurious penthouse.

By Bea Isaacson

For those that want to know London as a local rather than a tourist, there’s no greater place to reside than Chelsea.

Neatly situated just between Kensington, Westminster and the River Thames itself, the hallowed neighborhood is posher, to use the locals’ language, than its surrounding districts of Pimlico and Fulham, but with more of a community buzz than next door Belgravia.

A block behind Sloane Avenue, and within walking distance of museums including the Victoria & Albert and the Natural History museums, and shopping districts of Sloane Street and the King’s Road, is The Lucan, Chelsea’s latest luxury residences block.

“We are delivering a boutique development that fits perfectly within the Chelsea landscape, offering not only an exceptional quality of life, but also delivering the highest international standards for luxury real estate,” commented Shreen R. Gupta, partner and CEO at Grid Properties, the residential developers behind the scheme.

“Located in one of the capital’s most sought-after neighborhoods, future residents will benefit not only from the unmatched offerings of the immediate locale but also the lifestyle of living like a hotel guest.”

One particular property available within The Lucan is particularly attractive for those seeking more space and sleeping accommodations, whether for a growing family or for the freedom to host without limits.

The Penthouse suite, which occupies an entire floor, features four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and awe-inspiring 360-degree views across the rooftops of Chelsea and Kensington.

Designed by architects Kohn Pederson Fox, the exterior of The Lucan reflects the Victorian and Georgian townhouses of the surrounding streets that characterize this part of the city, while inside, interior design studio Rive Gauche has seamlessly blended luxury amenities of today’s age with timeless and sophisticated pieces.

Small details, for example, like the plush cushioned dining chairs in which a gold metal frame grants a juicy nod to Art Deco, or the subtle color hints of browns and reds inside that contextualize the red-brick architecture of outside.

The rest of The Lucan, which is managed by Marriott International and is set to open late next year, is just as stylish in tone and generous in offerings outside the Penthouse. Property owners will have access to chauffeurs, personal trainers, housekeeping and 24-hour valet service, as well as a state-of-the-art gym.
