Battersea SW11

Many of the newcomers to the area who seek advice from estate agents in Battersea are young professionals, often attracted by the large number of glossy new-build apartments. Due to its lack of tube station, Battersea has remained relatively under the radar. But, with the Northern Line graving the area with its presence in 2012, many are moving to the area for riverside living, picturesque green spaces, and good schools.

Attractions in Battersea

Boasting a low crime rate, excellent schools and blossoming transport connection isn’t all that Battersea has to offer. Battersea Dogs & Cats Home has been part of the lively south London suburb since 1871. 58 years later Battersea’s most famous landmark, the power station, was built. Over the coming years, Battersea Power Station will be in the midst of one of the most ambitious redevelopment schemes London has ever seen.
