THE BLACKBOOK: The future of London rides on two wheels

Oakley Street by Rokstone - Exterior Full

Anyone who has lived in London knows that snarling traffic jams are common daily occurrence and sometimes, the best way to get around is literally on a bicycle. The city has come to terms with the new Eco-trend and has outlined a massive plan to install bicycle ‘quietways’ so cyclists can have a low traffic easy route around London.

London’s super premier Chelsea neighborhood is one of the key thoroughfares to enjoy this new bike friendly routing and an excellent opportunity has now become available on Oakley street in the posh neighborhood.

Considered a cyclist’s dream (or as we call it, an investor’s dream for bicycle happy London), this posh townhouse is situated in Chelsea Village, known for its top notch schooling and cosmopolitan lifestyle.

The planned bicycle ‘quiteways’ runs on Oakley street giving cyclists unprecedented, safe and efficient access to other parts of London.

This period townhouse was refurbished to maintain a blend of contemporary style while holding on to its Victorian heritage. Owners (and potential tenants) will appreciate classic design elements and modern fixtures over its 3810 square footage.
