This well-presented and extremely spacious 2 bedroom apartment extending to 775 square feet, which sits on the top floor of White House, one of the 5 buildings that make up the 'Battersea Village Estate', a popular and secure development noted for its communal gardens and desirable Battersea Square location. The apartment is accessed by 'its own' private staircase from the third floor and features a spacious entrance hall leading to a large double bedroom and a second, duel aspect double bedroom and a large bright modern three piece bath suite. The living room is large and bright with a very well fitted kitchen leading from it with nice views back into the courtyard. The property also benefits from its own allocated off street car parking space.
Vicarage Crescent is situated at the northern end of Battersea High Street, a quiet residential street notable for being the location of Thomas's Battersea School and opposite the open spaces and recreational facilities of Fred Wells Gardens. The property is located in close proximity to the shops and restaurants of Battersea Square, including Gail's Bakery and London House by Gordon Ramsay. The 170 bus, which goes directly to Chelsea, stops on Battersea Square. Clapham Junction, with its links to Waterloo & Victoria is a 12 minute walk away.
'Battersea Village Estate' is a popular gated development that benefits from beautifully maintained communal gardens, a communal launderette and a resident porter.
Some words from the owners:
What do you love most about your home?
We love the cosy feel of the property, tucked up and away from the rest of the building, it is lovely and quiet. It also benefits from the double aspect and with the large windows on either side it is light and spacious. It is great for entertaining friends in the large sitting room and with two good sized bedrooms it works for both families and flat sharers. The gated aspect of Battersea Village provided us with additional security reassurance and the porters help to keep everything ship shape with a 24 hour presence.
Why are you moving?
We are moving out of London due to changing work commitments and so are very sad to have to leave the flat behind.
What do you love about the area?
We love this part of London especially as Battersea Village is located on a quiet road with the benefit of off street parking. The square behind the village is full of wonderful shops and restaurants and you are within easy reach of Clapham and Chelsea for even more shopping, good pubs and nightlife haunts. In addition to this, Battersea Park is just around the corner with the zoo, multiple playgrounds and playing fields, hidden tropical gardens and great child friendly café spots. The river walks are wonderful whatever the season but especially rewarding after a great river pub lunch!
The transport links are fantastic. With Clapham Junction train station just a 10 minute walk away you have access to all of London. The bus routes are also very good with direct buses to Wandsworth, Victoria, Chelsea and the city. From the flat we had quick and easy access to the A3 and A40 for routes out of town to visit family for the weekend.
