This 2 bedroom flat is an artistic oasis in the heart of the Capital, and one for culture lovers.
Enter the property and you’ll find a stylishly furnished sitting room at the front of the apartment with leather sofas and armchairs, a colourful rug and a designer coffee table of intersecting wood and glass. There are splashes of colour from the many art books, delicately balanced on an upright bookcase, and from the vast collection of artwork adorning the walls. For entertainment there’s a flatscreen TV with a DVD player, Apple TV and Netflix, which guests are welcome to use.
Through the styled hallway with its ‘shabby chic’ white wooden floors and many more paintings, you’ll find the kitchen at the back of the home. This is a light and airy room with a large sash window and the back door which opens out onto a pretty terraced garden, with many well cared-for pot plants. The kitchen is very well equipped with a modern hob and oven, a fridge/freezer, a microwave, juicer, dishwasher and washing machine/dryer. There’s even a trouser press. The large dark wood dining table and chairs are ideal for an evening meal, and the collection of antlers with a hat collection is a trendy and unique feature!
The master bedroom is home to a comfortable double bed with an ornate bedframe and an original Victorian fireplace with beautiful mouldings. There are many interesting ornaments throughout the flat from the owner’s travels and plenty of storage space in the chest of drawers and modern cupboards. The sash window allows lots of natural light to flood in, and offers a lovely view onto the garden.
The second bedroom at the back of the flat has a wooden bedstead. There’s also a printer/scanner/copier in the apartment to use. There are also some paintings on the wall and a window onto the terrace. The bathroom has all modern fittings, with a bath tub and shower attachment, a sink and a loo.
This apartment is in a very sought-after neighbourhood in Battersea, just south of the Thames. This area has many good restaurants, bars and cafes to enjoy, particularly along Battersea Park Road. You are only a 2 minute walk to Battersea Park which is a stunning 200 acre green space, to be enjoyed by all ages. There are many landscaped gardens with plants and foliage from around the world, a boating lake, a bowling green and a children’s playground.
Stroll across one of the three bridges nearby and you’ll be in the upmarket area of Chelsea and on the picturesque Chelsea Embankment. From the apartment, you can walk through the park and to the famous King’s Road in Chelsea in less than half an hour. This long street is well-known for its boutique shops, trendy bars and fine dining restaurants, and for those interested in art the Saatchi Gallery is at the eastern end of this long road, near Sloane Square. Around Sloane Square you’ll find several luxury brands such as Tiffany & Co. and Hugo Boss, as well as more boutique outlets and cafes.
South Kensington for Natural History, Victoria & Albert and Science Museums is only 10 minutes by taxi, and Kensington High Street close by offers many more restaurants and bars.
The property is only a 5 minute walk to Battersea Park train station, where you can easily catch connections to all areas of the city. You can be at Victoria in 5 minutes and from there you could hop on one of three main tube lines – the Circle, District and Victoria lines which can take you all over the city very quickly. From here you can be at Oxford Street for shopping in 5 minutes, and Notting Hill for the Portobello Road markets in 12 minutes. There are also many buses which run nearby which can take you straight to High Street Kensington, Knightsbridge, Belgravia, Notting Hill, Hyde Park and Oxford Street.
Parking outside the property is free between 5pm and 9am, or there is also pay and display parking close by too.
Wandsworth is centred around the large Common, a public park similar to Clapham Common, and the river front towards Battersea is a former wharf area that now hosts apartment blocks, several bars and restaurants. Set back from the river towards Wandsworth Town train station is Old York Road, a little street with restaurants and shops which used to be the former centre of old Wandsworth. This spreads to an area of grander semi-detached and detached houses which is often desired by city workers, lawyers and other professionals because they retain their Victorian character and are very spacious - ideal for families with children of varying ages.
Another of Wandsworth's most historic and impressive buildings is the Royal Victoria Patriotic Building, which sits amongst the common grounds off Trinity Road. It was originally built to house orphan girls during the Crimean War but now contains flats, a theatre school and a high-end restaurant called ‘Le Gothique.’
For shopping and entertainment there is the Southside centre which houses a Waitrose, a gym and many other big brand shops. Behind this is King George's Park which follows the River Wandle upstream towards Earlsfield and further south to Wimbledon. It is home to picturesque ponds, tennis courts, football pitches and cycle paths.
Neighbouring Putney’s high street has many nice pubs and restaurants and even hosts a farmer’s market at the weekend. Along the river front near Putney Bridge there are some pubs offering more upmarket dining such as The Boathouse, The Star & Garter and the Half Moon Pub. This is also the starting location for the historic, annual Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, which started in 1829 and now takes place every year around Easter.
