Get in on Vauxhall revamp with a modern mews home

Homes at Percival Mews are ideally located with great transport links to central London and less than a mile from bustling Sloane Square.
Buyers should follow the developers mapping out the route of the £1 billion Northern line extension from Kennington to Battersea. Vauxhall, sandwiched between the two, will be a big beneficiary of this transport upgrade and associated regeneration.
One of two new stations will be at the Vauxhall end of Wandsworth Road, where Sainsbury and Barratt are undertaking a huge retail and residential scheme with 750 flats. The other station will be at Nine Elms.

Vauxhall is seen as a "gateway" to central London and is barely a mile from the Palace of Westminster and Sloane Square. For many years, however, it has been less enticing than its riverside location might suggest. St George Wharf, a cliff of Thames-side blocks, is the dominant presence amid the traffic swirl. More towers are in the pipeline, and developers are unlocking smaller sites back from the river, where there are pockets of relatively affordable period housing — check out Bonnington Square. Percival Mews, pictured, is a gated scheme of freehold mews houses set behind a listed Georgian terrace between Vauxhall Bridge and the Kia Oval cricket ground in Kennington. Prices from £945,000, including courtyard parking space or car port. Call estate agent Daniel Cobb on 020 7222 1000.
