Named ‘The Gallery’, the development is made up of a range of new townhouses and apartments, plus converted apartments in a grand restoration of some of the original buildings. Each residence is named after artists Patrick Caulfield, Henry Moore and Graham Sutherland, who all attended the Chelsea College of Art.

Yvette Ruggins Sales Director of developers Astral Homes said: ‘The Gallery has been created to reflect the elements of the College of Art and to inherit the artistic flair left by its celebrated alumni. This is an opportunity to live in one of London’s most stylish and sought-after postcodes.’

The Caulfield Apartments is a collection of studio, one and two bedroom apartments named after the great English painter and printmaker Patrick Caulfield, who studied at the College of Art in the late 1950s. Studio apartments start from £250,000, one-bedroom apartments from £405,000 and two-bedroom apartments from £680,000.

Next, named after the famous sculptor Henry Moore, a former pupil of the College who later became head of the sculpture department in the 1930s, The Moore Schoolhouse is a selection of converted one, two and three bedroom apartments. These homes have been carefully restored to combine contemporary and period interiors. There is also the restored Caretaker’s House, the Lodge.

Prices for the houses on the site start from £800,000. All homes at The Gallery offer the added benefits of landscaped gardens, a dedicated concierge and many have secure parking.

The Gallery is located near the proposed overland station at Imperial Wharf, SW6. Contact 020 7751 3322;
