Located in the London Borough of Wandsworth, Battersea is a popular residential area in South London. Battersea is bordered by the River Thames to the north, Camberwell and Streatham to the south, with Clapham to the south-east, Wandsworth to the west and Lambeth to the east. The area offers a blend of prestigious homes and social housing, and is equally diverse in terms of amenities: there are many schools, excellent transport links, lots of shops, bars and restaurants, as well as wonderful green spaces like Battersea Park.
BATTERSEA PROPERTY SEARCH
With tree-lined roads and lots of greenery, a Battersea property search primarily yields three types of properties: modern conversion flats, elegant Victorian terrace houses and chic new-build riverside apartments. Some of Battersea’s recently built property gems include the award-winning lateral apartments of Parkgate House and Battersea Square Mews, a new boutique apartment scheme offering chic apartments and townhouses set around cobbled courtyards and with all of the latest modern comforts. The development of Battersea Square Mews is representative of the rapid gentrification of the ‘old village’ surrounding Battersea Square and can be considered part of a wider trend throughout the area.
LUXURY BATTERSEA PROPERTY
Although Battersea has a very mixed property offering, with affordable options and social housing, a Battersea property search will also show prime high-end properties with exquisite design features and elegant architecture. One of the area’s most recent developments, Warriner Place, is a scheme of luxury Victorian townhouses set around a private inner courtyard, built a stone’s throw from Battersea Park. Buyers can also find sophisticated red-brick mansions along Prince of Wales Drive and Lurline Gardens.
BATTERSEA INVESTMENT PROPERTY
The rental yield is extremely high in Battersea, as the area appeals to such a broad spectrum of tenants; investors with an interest in capital growth will not be disappointed either, as the area is fast becoming more upscale with new additions like Gordon Ramsey’s latest restaurant, London House, opening near Battersea Square.
BATTERSEA HOME BUYERS
The local primary schools and greenery of the area attract many families, while Battersea’s convenience and amenities appeal to many young professionals in their twenties and thirties as well. The local French school École de Wix has also led to a burgeoning French community in the area.
