The new show home at The Metropolitan collection in up-and-coming Battersea is giving property-hunters a taste of the best of London living.
Award-winning Linden Homes’ latest development in the capital has brought to life an Edwardian former police station in the thick of one of the most fashionable quarters of the capital.
For those seeking a one-bedroom apartment, it’s too late; they have already sold out. However, there is still a selection of two and three-bedroom apartments, two-bedroom duplexes and one studio apartment yet to be snapped up, most with balconies or private patios.
The show home is a stylish two-bedroom home on the ground floor of the refurbished police station section of the collection. At one end of the apartment is the en suite master bedroom, with a built-in wardrobe, connected by a hallway to the well-appointed open plan kitchen/dining/living room.
A second bedroom, a bathroom and convenient storage space complete the airy property which ranges across 810 square feet lit by elegant, tall windows.
The high-ceilinged show home reflects the blend of new and old with a cool, classic look of pale blue and white given a few contemporary twists.
Darren Maddox, Linden Homes South East managing director, said: “The Metropolitan’s quality and location means buyers have style and sophistication both when they’re at home and out about town.
“There’s a huge buzz around Battersea thanks to work on the iconic Battersea Power Station and the surrounding Nine Elms and Vauxhall areas. The regeneration is lifting up the entire area, adding to the wide range of attractions already here.
“The popularity is reflected in the mix of buyers we’ve had, ranging from first-timers through to investors looking to take advantage of such an up and coming area. That’s why we’re encouraging property hunters to get in touch now, before it’s too late.”
The Metropolitan is a unique range of studios and apartments within the 1911 brick-built landmark building on Battersea Bridge Road, connected via a glass atrium to a modern new collection of homes behind. Homes at the rear overlook a large, south-facing, landscaped courtyard with seating.
The high spec treatment includes carpet running through both bedrooms, with Karndean Knight tiles in the hall and open-plan living kitchen area. In the kitchen are integrated appliances and underlit LED lighting. The main bathroom shows off sleek tiling, timber-style bath panel, and LED plinth light.
Homes are also prepared for fitting Sky+ multi-room provision to living rooms and all bedrooms, and there is also the invitation to all residents of a three-month trial of Hyperoptic broadband and phoneline. A video entry system offers the reassurance of security too.
In common with all Linden Homes’ developments, each property also comes with a 10-year NHBC warranty for peace of mind, as well as a two-year customer care warranty.
The Metropolitan is just a short hop to Fulham and Chelsea with the Kings Road shops and theatreland. Residents will also be 20 minutes' walk to Clapham Junction with its excellent transport links to destinations all over the UK.
Nearby is the fashionable Northcote Road with its market, cafes, restaurants and individual shops or wander through Battersea Park with its lake, zoo and sports centre.
