About this title

Synopsis:

The Cadogan Estate in Chelsea is one of the few remaining ancient family estates in London, covering one of the capital’s most dynamic, thriving and fashionable districts. The foundations of the Cadogan Estate were established in 1717 when Charles, 2nd Baron Cadogan married the daughter of Sir Hans Sloane, who had purchased the Manor of Chelsea in 1712. This lavish book celebrates the family’s 300-year stewardship of the Estate, which continues in the hands of the present Viscount Chelsea who succeeded his father, Earl Cadogan as group chairman in 2012. Beautifully illustrated, this collection of essays by expert commentators looks at the history and lineage of this noble family and the formation of the Estate as we know it today, focusing on the architectural and horticultural heritage that has shaped the built environment of the area, the economic and social impact of the two world wars, twentieth-century arts and culture, pioneering fashion trends and the changing face of retail in Chelsea. Today the Estate is home to London’s most glamorous and dynamic locations for retail, fashion and culture attracting a global clientele, yet continuing to invest and promote in local, independent business and culture.
