Aston Martin is one of the most celebrated brands in British motoring history, with their luxurious vehicles enjoying a worldwide following. Their popularity is boosted further by the fact they became synonymous with James Bond after Sean Connery drove a stunning DB5 in 1964’s Goldfinger.
The manufacturer started life in 1913 in a mid terraced property in Chelsea. It was here that engineers Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford designed, built and unveiled the very first Aston Martin vehicle in 1915. The “Coal Shuttle” was the only vehicle they could manufacture until 1920 due to restrictions on production because of the First World War. After these were lifted they began creating other high quality models at the address until they were forced to move to a larger premises in 1923 due to rising demand.
The property in Chelsea is an essential part of the history of Aston Martin and is celebrated as the birthplace of the company. After they moved from this address, the property was transformed into a three bedroom home and the area became a gated community. The location is now regarded as one of the most exclusive places to live in London.
The home has now been put on the market for £2.295 million. This is an amazing opportunity for Aston Martin fans to own a unique piece of the history of the company. The property even has a plaque on the front facade to commemorate the fact that it was the birthplace of the iconic brand.
It is fitting the property would go on the market now on the 100th anniversary of the unveiling of the very first Aston Martin vehicle. The local estate agents in charge of the sale expect a great deal of interest because the property is in a valuable area and has such an amazing history. Interested buyers should act quickly if they want to snap up this unique property investment in Kensington and Chelsea.
