A Road fit for a Royal

This summer there is no doubt that Britain is focused on all things Royal.  In keeping with this theme we take a look at a selection of addresses favoured by some of our most influential Royals in history.

Cheyne Walk

In the 1540s, Henry VIII built a home on this stretch of the river. Since then it has become one, if not ‘the’ most desirable area to live in London. A long list of the great and good have owned houses here: Vaughan Williams, George Best, J M W Turner, Keith Richards, Hilaire Belloc and Henry James.

This flat occupies the whole of the first floor of this fine Grade II listed period building, designed and built by leading Arts and Crafts architect C R Ashbee, on the historic Cheyne Walk. The flat has a warm wood-panelled reception with fireplace and a light, open, spacious bedroom and living area, providing this beautiful period flat with a special ambiance. The fine views over the river at the front, and gardens to the rear are integral to the property’s charm. The price is £1,200,000.


This property is a bright, beautifully presented and newly modernised fifth floor one bedroom flat. It is located in a well run portered block, quietly situated just off Cheyne Walk. Shrewsbury House has the benefit of off street parking and communal gardens. The property is priced at £550,000

Bognor Regis

Regis, Latin for “of the king”, occurs in numerous place names. This usually recalls the historical ownership of lands or manors by the Crown. There is one modern example of the granting of the suffix “regis”. In 1929 George V, having spent several months recuperating from a serious illness in the seaside resort of Bognor, West Sussex, allowed it to be renamed as “Bognor Regis”.

This beautifully designed, fully refurbished detached beach front property in Bognor Regis is located in a private cul-de-sac on the prestigious Aldwick Bay Private Estate. The property has 5 bedrooms, a large balcony, a media room and direct beach access. The price is £1,400,000.

A Grade II Listed thatched cottage within the heart of Felpham village, this home has a wealth of original features including exposed beams and Flintstone walls, an inglenook fireplace and flag stone flooring. The property is set on a very good size plot with an outstanding rear garden, there is a private driveway, double garage and front and rear gardens.

Tunbridge Wells

In 1909 Edward VII gave Tunbridge Wells the prefix “Royal” in recognition of the town’s connections with the royal family since the Stuart dynasty.

This fine apartment is in Tunbridge Wells is a major part of this substantial Victoria house dating from the mid 1800’s. The spacious, beautifully presented interior is well laid out over two floors. The apartment is beautifully presented throughout in a contemporary style retaining its original character features such as high ceilings, moulded cornices, fireplaces, sash windows, picture rails and deep skirting boards.
