Introducing Chelsea Botanica, where life is better by nature
We launched Chelsea Botanica, an exclusive boutique collection of stylish new homes with a strong emphasis on wellbeing and nature in partnership with Peabody.
At Chelsea Botanica in SW6, beautiful gardens designed in collaboration with scientists from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and a Peloton fitness hub will help create an unparalleled environment for modern London living. The limited-edition range of apartments situated just moments from the River Thames are now available to purchase off-plan for completion in 2025.
Chelsea Botanica encompasses 133 carefully designed new homes ranging from studios to one, two and three-bedroom apartments. With a 24-hour concierge, a state-of-the-art fitness hub, co-working spaces and landscaped gardens designed by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, to boost biodiversity, the quality of lifestyle is outstanding. Close to everything that the desirable boroughs of Chelsea and Fulham have to offer, this is an enduringly popular location with the best of the city on the doorstep.
Jon Hall, Group Sales Director at Mount Anvil, said: “Chelsea Botanica represents something special for West London – a place where understated luxury, natural materials and personal wellbeing are at the forefront. It has been meticulously designed to suit the way people now live and includes high quality interior design, an array of on-site amenities and a range of innovative outdoor spaces. We want to make residents’ lives better and we realise that wellbeing and nature are two very important and accessible ways to do that. This is why we believe our smart partnerships with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and Peloton will provide an exceptional opportunity for discerning purchasers.”
Chelsea Botanica takes a biophilic approach to design, which means connecting residents closely with nature to create a healthier and more productive environment. The centrepiece of this is the landscaped gardens created in collaboration with the scientists at nearby Kew Gardens. They have carefully chosen more than 70 plant and tree species to create a beautiful space not only to be enjoyed by residents, but also providing valuable habitat for insects, birds and other wildlife. Spending time outdoors is one of the best ways to boost wellbeing so residents will enjoy using the wooden yoga and pilates decks, social terrace and play areas, and woodland work pods equipped with Wi-Fi and power.
Dr Hauke Koch, Research Leader at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew said: “It’s crucial that we enhance the green spaces in our cities and consider the potential of all new developments to support biodiversity and help improve air quality. The garden at Chelsea Botanica is an opportunity to create an innovative new green space that will flourish for future generations. It is widely accepted that spending time in gardens boosts people’s health, and the wide mix of plant species we are introducing will also make this a valuable habitat to support London’s pollinator populations.”
Lisa Crush, Director of Sales at Peabody comments: “We are very proud to be working in partnership with Mount Anvil to deliver an exceptional development, and more importantly the opportunity to purchase a home in a sought-after West London location. Chelsea Botanica brings forward a new era of residences alongside an innovative collection of amenities where health and wellbeing effortlessly merge with nature and greenspace. This is a very exciting opportunity for London’s homebuyers and we are thrilled to be a part of it.”
The outdoor social and dining areas are not the only communal spaces where residents can get together. All residents at Chelsea Botanica gain exclusive membership to three unique spaces. The Hive encompasses the social areas including a well-appointed residents’ lounge, as well as the 24-hour concierge service and reception on hand to make life easier for residents. The Atelier offers quiet co-working spaces with flexible seating and a light airy meeting space for collaborative working, reflecting the flexible nature of the modern life work balance. And in The Suite, the impressive fitness hub that overlooks the gardens, Chelsea Botanica offers the first residential partnership with Peloton, the largest interactive fitness platform in the world. The latest Peloton equipment offers live and on demand workouts 24-7 from elite instructors around the world with classes that include not just cycling, but also cardio, resistance training, yoga and meditation.
This carefully considered approach to luxurious design continues inside every apartment with the premium specification and attention to detail in all aspects. Created in partnership with award winning designers AARX and Atelier, the calming biophilic colour palette includes sage green cabinets and natural wood tones in the kitchen. Other highlights of the interior design include onyx feature tiles and brushed gold and brass fittings in the bathroom, panelled linen effect full-height wardrobes in the bedrooms, and softwood flooring and velvet feel carpets throughout. The spacious layouts are designed to help the space flow and make the most of natural light. Each home has its own private outdoor space, with courtyard gardens on the ground floor and river, garden or park view balconies and terraces on the upper floors.
In placing nature and wellbeing at the heart of Chelsea Botanica, protecting the environment is a priority so there are a variety of features that promote greener living. Construction is energy efficient and incorporates rooftop solar panels and air source heat pumps for a more sustainable energy supply, as well as electric car charging points.
Chelsea Botanica benefits from the best of cosmopolitan London living. The River Thames is moments from the door making it is convenient for riverside walks, waterside dining or even commuting to the city by boat from Chelsea Harbour Pier. It is just a short hop to the King’s Road with its array of its shops, restaurants, Chelsea Farmers’ Market and the Saatchi Gallery.
Closer to home, Imperial Wharf also offers a great choice of places to eat and essential shopping, as well as a convenient station on the London Overground line offering connections from Clapham Junction to Stratford and beyond. The green open spaces of Imperial Park and South Park are close by, and the wide expanses of Battersea Park are also in walking distance, while for families there is a range of excellent schools in the area.
Emma Fletcher Brewer, Partner at Knight Frank, comments: “Central London postcodes have always been among the most sought-after in the UK and we have no doubt that the apartments at Chelsea Botanica will be in great demand. Occupying a prime SW6 location, Mount Anvil is creating a unique living experience for London homebuyers, elegantly combining luxurious apartment living with an exceptional collection of resident’s facilities that allows health and wellbeing to take precedence.”
