Our SW8 estate agents are looking at what is on offer to buyers in the Battersea area. Great properties, great views and great transport links are all here. But there is another key ingredient that really makes a home and this area has it in spades.

New homes in SW8 enjoy cultural participation

Some of London’s newest developments are now providing a key ingredient to happy and involved living. Battersea is right on the money when it comes to providing for its residents.

Carving the life you want is easy in this ideal location for living

Cultural hubs are very important. They undoubtedly bring communities into being. Gathering people together for shared experiences, appreciation and joy. They give the community a heart. Renters and purchasers alike are brought together. Families and single occupants, young and old can all gather and enjoy what is on offer at these exhibitions, concerts, fashion shows etc. Areas with cultural nerve centres are the platform on which communities thrive and grow.

Battersea Power Station brings a new development with a twist

Clearly the power station regeneration is a very ambitious one. There will be over 4,300 homes priced from £550,000 on offer. Alongside these homes will be many shops and eateries and entertainment spaces.

The development will also house an auditorium which will seat 250 people for intimate performances. Another cultural delight will be The Venue. This mixed use space is designed cleverly and can work for many types of performances or show.

Singing for Joy in Battersea

The six-acre Power Station Park is a fantastic amenity in the area. Moreover, it is going to house live music events going forward. People in the area have already enjoyed art exhibitions and literary festivals, to name but two.

In addition the Battersea Power Station Community Choir has also been brought to life by locals. Residents and workers in the area are invited to join and take part in this fun and inclusive group. There is without a doubt a real sense of community and culture here. Both factors are definitely helping to make Battersea a great place to live.
