Chevron apartments offers loft-style living on the Old Kent Road

Old Kent Road may conjure up little more than an image of a Monopoly board, but this area of London is fast rising in the property ranks. Chevron Apartments is a case in point.
It’s the cheapest location on the Monopoly board and is better known for absurdly named pubs than as a place to live — but Old Kent Road is moving up in the world.

Not only has it been designated by London Mayor Boris Johnson as a new “Opportunity Area” — making it a focus for regeneration — but a proposed extension of the Bakerloo line from Elephant & Castle to suburban south-east London would further boost this Tube-starved spot, so close to the West End it gets into the large-print pages of the A-Z.

Chevron Apartments comprises 37 loft-style flats behind a Fifties factory façade with a double-height entrance foyer created from the original loading bays. A warm-brick warehouse-style extension at the rear links with a landscaped cobbled courtyard. The legacy of industry means this is a raw rather than refined location now, but it is one for the future.

Prices from £249,950 for a studio. Two-bedroom homes start from under £450,000. Call Stirling Ackroyd on 020 7749 3810.
