Contrasting Showhomes Attract First-Time Buyers In Battersea
22 Apr 2016

Two showhomes are now available to view at The Metropolitan, a collection of apartments on Battersea Bridge road, which are proving very popular with first-time buyers.

The Metropolitan is a unique collection of homes which have been beautifully designed and restored by Linden Homes in the old Edwardian police station in Battersea. Situated close to the River Thames, a stone’s throw from Battersea Park, these two and three-bedroom apartments are well located, close to the city centre with plenty of open space nearby.

Drawing on the building’s history, the showhomes have been designed to reflect the contrast between the historic and contemporary aspects of the architecture to create a practical living space with a luxury edge.

Commenting on the design, Sophie Fox, assistant interior designer at BoxNine7, said: “The colours used throughout the home are thoroughly on trend. We’ve used shades featured in Pantones ‘Colour of the Year’ and monochrome materials, which proved popular at this year’s design week.

“The Master bedroom has an ambience of masculinity, using darker and cooler tones, with the second bedroom being styled with a lighter, more feminine theme. Reflecting the contrast of historical and modern architecture, the rooms have clearly distinguished looks and contrasting décor.

“The modern and on-trend designs we’ve incorporated into the scheme will really appeal to young professionals looking to buy their first property in London. The area is home to a lot of young couples and professionals, many of whom are first-time buyers, who are attracted to the exciting night life and gorgeous cafes and restaurants close by.

Darren Maddox, managing director, Linden Homes South East, said: “The apartments are proving particularly popular with those looking to get on the property ladder. We are hosting a champagne reception later this month to welcome prospective buyers to come and view these stunning new apartments and take a look at the contemporary showhomes.”

The champagne reception will take place at the Metropolitan apartments on Battersea Bridge Road, SW11 3AF on Thursday 28th April between 6-8pm and is open to all prospective new buyers.

With Battersea Park just a five minute walk away, the location gives homeowners the perfect spot to walk and enjoy various sports and outdoor activities. Walking north from the apartments takes you into Chelsea with its high-end shopping and eateries, whilst going south takes you to Battersea and Clapham Common with plenty of pubs and parks to enjoy.

There is currently a small selection of two and three-bedroom apartments remaining at The Metropolitan on each floor of the building. Each property comes with a 10-year NHBC warranty for peace of mind, as well as a two year customer care warranty.
