242 Battersea Bridge Road, London, SW11 3AA

aspire Battersea is approaching its fifth year of business. In that time we have seen the market and our office go from strength to strength. In late 2012 we heard the news that Battersea Power station is finally going ahead, and this has had a positive effect on prices, both on a sales and rental perspective. I don’t anticipate this to stop over the coming months and years. Battersea is a hugely exciting area and is becoming even more popular with the influx of buyers and tenants coming over from North of the River as well as the huge international interest in the area.
