A police station sell-off is spawning a wave of new homes in well-connected parts of London including Hackney, Clapham, Brockley, East Ham, Leyton and Hampstead.
The former “nick” in Battersea Bridge Road is being transformed into The Metropolitan, above. Flats, 49 in total, have been created in the handsome original Edwardian red-brick station and new-build blocks, linked at the rear by a glass atrium.
Battersea Park is close and it is a five-minute walk to the Thames. Prices from £740,000. Call Linden Homes on 020 3131 2762.
