Where? Battersea covers the SW11 postcode, edging the River Thames to the north and encompassing the ever-growing Nine Elms and Power Station enclaves.
What’s new? The Waterfront Bar at Baltimore House has received a refurbishment just in time for summer while in July, Battersea Arts Centre will once again run its Summer In The Courtyard progamme of comedy, gigs and spoken word performances. We’ve also noticed a new specialist dry cleaners will open soon on Lavender Hill.
Property market latest: Brand new to market is a larger than average two-bedroom apartment at Waterside Point, complete with remodeling potential and a private terrace. For those who love period charm, it’s the first time this Victorian terraced home on Battersea Bridge Road has been on the market for 30 years. It has been sympathetically converted to yield oodles of living space and still offers basement potential.
New homes: Did you know the Royal Mail site in Nine Elms has been sold for £101 million, with work soon to start on almost 900 new homes? All the properties are being created on a Build to Rent basis.
