Bakery complex is best thing since sliced bread

The Victorian one-level apartments in Parkgate House offer homeowners the ultimate in river living

WITH the transformation of Battersea Power Station due for completion in 2016 and an extension of the Northern Line planned for 2020, the future looks bright for Battersea.

The redevelopment projects are generating interest from a host of domestic and international buyers, and now they can consider Parkgate House, a former Victorian bakery located just west of Battersea Park, within minutes of the River Thames and the King’s Road. The 17,200 sq ft development consists of six impressively large and well-specified apartments, each with a private roof terrace, secure parking, and porter services. Parkgate House retains the charm and character of the original Victorian façade. The inside looks the part too, with floor to ceiling windows, contemporary interior space, and very high quality handcrafted furnishings. Prices start from £1.9m and go up to around £6.5m.

Lulu Egerton, a partner at Strutt & Parker, says: “The sale of these one-level apartments with parking and terraces on this historic and iconic site, The Old Bakery, brings together an historic Victorian building with a large space and flexible living. It is a stunning contemporary space.”
