Moving House on the Kings Road

Chenil House on King’s Road was an underused and unlisted building located within a Conservation Area and adjacent to the Grade II listed Chelsea Town Hall.

The 1926 building was formerly a gallery and accidental recording venue, and is of local historic interest. The facade, originally set back from the road was retained but moved, in-situ, to the street frontage.

After 6 weeks of careful coordination and preparation the façade was moved in just over three hours using two one tonne bottle jacks.
