The venerable Andy Buchanan appreciates a challenge: ‘Last year was horrendous, sheer hell’. It didn’t faze the elder statesman, who has become so synonymous with his area that he’s known in the press as ‘Mr Chelsea’. During his 43 years, he’s weathered every storm, saying the rise in competition ‘actually makes it a bit more fun’. Having spent his entire life in SW3, he doesn’t just know his patch inside out but actively champions it: ‘We’ve got over 61 different nationalities here, [it] is friendly and a lot of people feel it’s a very safe place to live. The architecture, the amenities, the way Chelsea works is second to none. It’s a place that has performed extremely well in the property market for both investing and living.’
