Borough has the edge on central living

Flats in Borough have it all: a central address, a famous food market and flats with breathtaking views.

In the blink of an eye, it seems, Borough has gone from scuzzy fringe to fiercely fashionable. It’s not just the atmospheric food market that appeals but the wider area, a wedge of SE1 between the river and Elephant & Castle. This is the Tate-Globe-Shard hinterland, a superbly central address whether it is the City or the West End that looms large in your life.

Borough Place in Marshalsea Road is a boutique scheme of two- and three-bedroom apartments, including a penthouse with a fabulous 430sq ft roof terrace. Prices from £975,000. Call Caddington Blue on 020 7497 6033 for more information.

Two Fifty One, pictured, in Southwark Bridge Road is much larger — it’s a 41-storey mixed-use skyscraper with 335 flats, and views from the upper floors are spectacular. 

On completion in 2017, the block will have a wifi-enabled business and home-working lounge-cum-café alongside a private cinema club, a gym and other amenities. Many of the apartments have glazed winter gardens. Prices start at £634,000. Call DTZ on 020 3296 2222.
