Battersea is a vibrant and stimulating area in the London Borough of Wandsworth, jam packed with numerous restaurants, cafes and bars feeding every range of taste available. It provides a host of places to eat, drink and socialise and houses a variety of young professionals and families situated just south of the River Thames.
Battersea has a real sense of community, with the small town feel of the area being one of the major reasons why local residents feel so avidly about where they live. There is plenty to do catering for every age group and taste; from shows and talks at Battersea Arts Centre to attractions and activities held at Battersea Park.
“Nappy Valley Central” – Northcote Road offers a plethora of boutique shops and bakeries where you can grab a coffee and then stroll on into the vast expanse that is Clapham Common.
The long-awaited Power Station redevelopment is in full swing, encompassing new homes, businesses and of course bars and eateries. With so much happening, it’s no surprise that Battersea is the new location of choice for projects such as the new American Embassy and UK Apple headquarters.
There is a vast choice of different types of colonized property in the area, all thanks to a fair amount of architectural changes that have taken place over the years. Many new riverside developments have been constructed over the waterfront including many spacious and luxurious apartments. Meanwhile over at the village area there is a vast choice of fantastic townhouses and maisonettes, also with a reasonable share of Victorian terraces. Property purchase and rental prices are at the higher end of London's property market, powered by the increasing demand to live in the area. The office at 200 Lavender Hill has many years’ experience in all the aforementioned types of properties, with an emphasis of knowledge in areas such as as Nine Elms, Little India, the Shaftesbury Conservation Area and The Falcons Estate.
The nearest tubes are Clapham Common and Clapham South, both delivered by the northern line. The Clapham Junction station (Over-ground & Underground) is also available and is caught daily by professionals en route to Victoria, Waterloo and further afield. A large selection of Day and Night buses are available to be caught to and from Central London. Many cycle routes are also available.

The Local Area
Just across a busy five-arched bridge, resides Battersea, the youthful heart of South London. A very popular choice for young professionals and families alike.
Situated on the south side of the River Thames and boasting excellent views of the London skyline, it has a population of over 75,000 and contains a number of prosperous areas. Ideal for an easy commute to the hubbub of Central London and leafy enough to feel almost rural, especially with a 200 acre garden on your doorstep, in the form of Battersea Park, which boasts a children's zoo, boating lake, bandstand, and several all-weather outdoor sporting facilities including tennis courts, a running track and football pitches. It’s no surprise Battersea and its Park are so popular.
