New family homes in Battersea:contemporary new-builds near Northcote Road's “Nappy Valley” area come with media 'dens' and marble bathrooms

For those who do not want to be part of the strip of new homes being built around the power station at Nine Elms, Bolingbroke Terrace is a new scheme of contemporary family houses

Battersea’s heartland of Victorian terraces and red-brick mansion blocks appeals to those who do not want to be part of the strip of new homes being built around the power station at Nine Elms.

The old village, back from the river, is just discernible around pretty cobbled Battersea Square, at the top of the High Street where it butts up against a typical London mix of council estates and conservation areas.

Among the latter is the Little India enclave, with road names including Cabul, Afghan, Khyber and Candahar, while Shaftsbury Estate, built in the 1870s for the working classes, has neat cottages that are now popular with professionals.

Bolingbroke Terrace is a scheme of contemporary-design family houses well-placed for the “Nappy Valley” area around Northcote Road. Each of the nine homes has a garden, a media “den”, marble-walled bathrooms and direct access from the house to basement parking. Prices from £1,925,000. 

Nearby Searcy House is another modern design. Seven Scandi-style flats have floor-to-ceiling glazing and underfloor heating. Prices from £750,000. Call Savills on 020 3428 2222.
