Good To Know Guide: Battersea Park
At Douglas & Gordon our Battersea Park Estate Agents understand the charm and hidden opportunities of the local areas they operate in. The sales and letting agents in Battersea Park work closely with our offices across central, west and south-west London to always ensure they achieve the best possible result.
Just a stone’s throw from Chelsea, Battersea Park has something for everyone - whether you are looking for a modern riverside development, a Victorian mansion block on Prince of Wales Drive, or a spacious family home. Carry on reading to see what our Battersea Park estate agents love about the local area.
Historic Battersea. This once industrial area between Vauxhall and Clapham Junction has become gentrified, but many of its historic landmarks still remain. Check out the iconic Battersea Power Station redevelopment, the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, and the New Covent Garden Market in Nine Elms.
Stunning riverside views. A sharp contrast from the popular areas of the Shaftesbury Estate or The Sisters - Battersea is now equally known for its many luxurious riverside developments. Some of the most prominent developments include Oyster Wharf, Waterside Point and Chelsea Bridge Wharf, not to mention Battersea Power Station which is the largest and one of the most famous redevelopments London has seen.
Battersea Park. The 200 acre Battersea Park is one of London’s most popular green spaces. It features a zoo, art gallery and sports facilities along with many cafes, a pitch & putt and the opportunity for fun on the boating lake. Some of the area’s most prestigious addresses are nearby, such as Prince of Wales Drive and Albert Bridge Road.
Your future neighbours. Much of Battersea Park property is owner-occupied, which gives the area a strong community feel. Over recent years, we have seen a large influx of buyers from north of the river, in particular Chelsea and Fulham, who have been attracted by the fantastic balance of space and cosmopolitan living. Designers such as Victoria Beckham and Vivienne Westwood have settled their businesses in the area, which is yet more proof that Battersea Park is becoming increasingly fashionable. The area also appeals to many buy-to-let investors, looking for long-term capital growth, who primarily rent homes to young professionals and families.
Eating, drinking and shopping. Leafy Battersea Square offers some fantastic cafes and restaurants - including Gordon Ramsay’s award-winning London House. Some of our other favourite local hot-spots include The Butcher & Grill restaurant, which offers incredible steaks, Source restaurant with its own natural spring, the Lighthouse and Prince Albert pubs, TeamWork salon and nail bar, and the hotel and spa Pestana Chelsea Bridge.
