Reinvention. From an industrial centre to the heart of south London, Battersea is about reinvention. It has reimagined itself as a thriving commercial hub – with restaurants and shops weaving their way through the extensive greenery that borders the Thames.
Minutes from Chelsea’s chic and Clapham’s trendy shops, you’re right in the centre of London. It’s an ideal place for our amazing range of homes, found by the spacious Battersea Park or with views across the river.
And when you’re down by the magnificent Battersea power station, just don’t forget to look up: the future’s still coming.
We introduce The Battersea Collection.
Welcome to Battersea
Battersea thrives with new activity: from its high-street shops to its quaint cafés, it can be hard to escape the hum-drum of this commercial area – so head to Battersea Park and you’ll feel you’ve entered another world. Home to a Buddhist Peace Pagoda, it has a range of cycle routes (as explored in our blog article) as well as some glorious views of Albert and Chelsea Bridges.
Found on the south of the River Thames, its borders Clapham, Wandsworth and lies next to London’s luxurious West End. You can easily reach the City and central London through the wide range of transport routes through the area – though we rarely find a reason to leave.
We present the beautiful range of homes we have in Battersea, as well as our area guide. And to discover more of our latest homes, have a look at our 100 in 100 campaign.
Our Battersea homes
Claire is a true adventurer, always seeking her next journey and outdoor pursuit. One of these is skiing, having worked in the industry for 20 years before setting up her own boutique ski company, based in London, but it is in Africa that she finds some of her favourite destinations.
This sense of the outdoors is reflected in Claire’s home. Natural light floods the spacious interior, with a large kitchen-diner. There is a communal courtyard providing an excellent spot to relax in the sun, but should you wish to venture further afield Battersea Park lies just next to the apartment.
You’ll feel at home in this stunning riverside development with gym, treatment spa, laundry and supermarket facilities on the doorstep and a 24-hour concierge service.

If you simply want to relax, watch TV or use your computer the riverflat offers high speed fibre optic internet access, Sonos sound system and ultra-HD television.

The living room leads to a private garden equipped with a barbeque and table and chairs providing a third reception room.
Lying right next to the river, Battersea is filled with luxurious greenery and parklands, perfect for a relaxing city bike ride: Battersea Park has an extensive series of fountains and gardens, developed during the 1951 Festival of Britain. There is also the eye-opening Peace Pagoda, built by the monks and nuns of the Nipponzan Myohoji Buddhist order that today draws visitors from all over the world, whatever their faith.
