The first new homes in Old Kent Road, recently designated an “opportunity area”, or special regeneration zone, have been launched.

A former car showroom has been bulldozed to make way for Park View, occupying a prominent corner site overlooking Burgess Park, a 140-acre green tract.
Flats and maisonettes are priced from £260,000, with shared-ownership options available. Call Family Mosaic on 020 7089 1315 for more information.

The new opportunity area covers Old Kent Road itself and the “corridor” of land either side — a hotchpotch of modest Victorian terraces, council estates, warehouses and light industrial premises. For bargain hunters, it’s a place to investigate.

Printworks in New King’s Road, pictured, helps bridge the Chelsea-Fulham divide. Nine flats have been created in a characterful Victorian building where greetings cards were once made, forming part of a handsome streetscape. Prices from £495,000. Call Knight Frank on 020 7751 2400.
