Battersea School House - Burns Road, London, SW11
Guide Price £1,290,000
A completely bespoke property, this stunning Battersea School House forms part of one of London’s finest loft developments, Southside Quarter, just moments from Battersea Park.
The current owner has transformed this character space into an exciting, flexible home, with stunning design touches and clever use of stone, glass and lighting.
The ground floor features a wonderful reception room, with double height ceilings, vast period windows and beautiful stone floors. An open staircase leads down to the contemporary kitchen, with a large entertaining space.
The mezzanine level provides an office space on the landing and a guest bedroom suite. The master bedroom has been cleverly arranged on the second floor into the roof of the building, with the original beams exposed, ample skylights, dark hardwood flooring and glass divisions keeping a seamless flow of light into the ensuite bathroom.
In short, this property is perfect for those looking for a completely unique home, with its own front door but excellent security, in a quiet but desirable location.
Southside Quarter offers the rare chance to live in a converted Victorian schoolhouse loft but with the added advantage of lovely communal areas, a daytime caretaker and secured, allocated parking. The building is really well located, being just a short walk from Battersea Park and less than a mile south of Chelsea.
Battersea has long been regarded as one of London’s greenest and most desirable neighbourhoods. It has easy access to Chelsea across the river and with the new development at Battersea Power Station and the new American Embassy at Nine Elms, the area looks set to jump a notch in desirability with better transport links and local amenities.
