Old Church Street in Chelsea is famous as the road that includes London's most expensive house - the pounds 25m Old Rectory. In the late 19th century its main claim to fame was as the location of several superior brothels. The Echo of 10 April 1885 reports the owners of Nos 155, 125, 127 and129 being prosecuted for keeping 'disorderly houses'. No 155 has been restored as a fine family home with six bedrooms, four bathrooms, four reception rooms and parking. It is for sale through John D Wood for pounds 1.7m.
