Battersea’s venerable institutions – from its power station to its Dogs and Cats Home – often overshadow its considerable success as a residential destination. While houses easily soar over the £1m mark in this part of south-west London, UK buyers still account for 76 per cent of the market, 80 per cent of whom use the property as their main residence, according to Savills. The estate agent’s research also shows that prime property prices in the area have risen by nearly 52 per cent since 2009. Spots next to Battersea Park or the Albert Bridge have proved especially lucrative, along with homes in the catchment areas of “Outstanding” rated primary schools such as Honeywell and Belleville.
