The Metropolitan: Old Meets New At Former Battersea Police Station
30 Oct 2015

A new show home has put the spotlight on the union of classic and contemporary at The Metropolitan, a former Edwardian police station providing high quality apartments in Battersea created by award-winning Linden Homes.

Complementing the refurbishment of the original 1911 red-brick building in Battersea Bridge Road is a brand new addition – linked by a glass walled staircase atrium – which is now ready to view.

On Saturday October 24th the two-bedroom show apartment will open its doors to give househunters the first taste of the contemporary side of the development’s personality.

The 778-square foot show apartment is thoughtfully designed to provide an open-plan lifestyle as modern as the architecture. A spacious and stylish kitchen/living/dining room overlooks the shared landscaped courtyard to the rear.

At the other end of the property the en suite master bedroom and second bedroom both open out onto a large balcony for some private outdoor space, perfect for a morning coffee. A bathroom, hall and ample storage complete the smart layout.

The show home also boasts the kind of high specification treatment that ranges throughout the development, such as integrated appliances in the kitchen, sleek tiling, and flashes of underlit LED lighting.

In fact, The Metropolitan reflects perfectly the stylish 21st century lifestyle of up-and-coming Battersea which is growing a reputation as one of the most fashionable quarters of London thanks to its proximity to transport links, premier shopping and lively culture.

The apartments have proved just as popular as the neighbourhood, but there is still a choice of two and three-bedroom apartments, and two-bedroom duplexes yet to be snapped up, most with balconies or private patios.

All residents are invited to a three-month trial of Hyperoptic broadband and phoneline, and homes are prepared for fitting Sky+ multi-room provision to living rooms and all bedrooms. A video entry system offers the reassurance of security.

Dylan May, land, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes South East, said: “Opening the new show home in the contemporary side of The Metropolitan is a big moment because it allows us to present the development in its full glory.

“We’ve taken great care to preserve the much-loved Edwardian character of the former police station, while bringing something fresh and stimulating with the new apartments. It makes it a very exciting prospect for buyers to see.

“We’ve already sold out of the one-bedroom apartments, so the demand is clearly there. We’re urging people to come and see the new show home and see for themselves what the buzz is about.”

Each property at The Metropolitan also comes with a 10-year NHBC warranty for peace of mind, as well as a two-year customer care warranty.
