Fancy living on a site which dates back to Queen Elizabeth I? Chelsea terraced house has an enormous price tag

But be prepared to pay for the history - the price tag is a WHOPPER!

The site of the house at 7 Coleridge Square dates back to the days of Queen Elizabeth I

Do you fancy living on a site which has around 500 years of history?

Oh, you do? Well, you're in luck - as long as you have a cool £9 million going spare.

For those who can stump up the cash, a terraced house in Chelsea has gone on the market in for a whopping £8,950,000.

Yes, you read that right - a five bedroom terraced house is up for sale at nearly nine million pounds.

But while it may seem like a lot of money to splash out on a five bedroom home, this is not just any house.

This mega-mansion forms part of an incredible and sought after development known as Kings Chelsea.

History buffs can celebrate because the site of the house at 7 Coleridge Square dates back to the days of Queen Elizabeth I.

It was rebuilt in 1840 as part of the college of Saint Mark, founded by the Reverend Derwent Coleridge to supply well-trained teachers to educate the masses.

The site was later occupied by Chelsea College which subsequently merged with Kings College London.

This historic grade II listed building was completely rebuilt in 2003 behind its original listed facade.

So while the outside has echoes of history, the inside is all mod cons.

The house is arranged over three floors, each with air conditioning, gas central heating and an integral audio system throughout.

All five double bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, and there is a guest cloakroom, kitchen, dining room and a large drawing room which opens to its own private patio garden and leads directly onto stunning communal gardens and a lake.

Labelled as an "an oasis of tranquility in the heart of a bustling Chelsea", the property benefits from a number of different contemporary accommodation amenities.

These include 24-hour security, concierge, swimming pool, gym, spa complex and tennis court and the availability of underground parking for two cars.

It is found close to Fulham Road and the Kings Road.
