Combining home & work is fast reaching the top of search criteria for people looking for a new space to live. Fitting, then, that this vast duplex in Battersea forms part of a super desirable converted Victorian school where homework is in the building's DNA.

An Elegant Converted School Building

The extraordinary amount of space on offer and the voluminous tall ceilings are just a couple of reasons why apartments at Victorian Heights are always in demand. They are screaming to be occupied by anyone with creativity at heart: imagine photography, painting, sculpting or making with all the natural light the oversized windows let in. 

The vast majority of the 1650 sq ft is given over to rooms, rather than circulation space, meaning the living and sleeping areas are all excellent sizes, with the duplex arrangement catering for singles, couples or even a young family looking to let a living space. The two double bedrooms (both with lots of built in wardrobes) and two bathrooms sit up top, while the huge reception room occupies most of the lower level and opens onto a nice-sized kitchen. Being a corner apartment, you get the benefit of daylight from two elevations through windows facing east and south.

Victorian Heights sits behind the lovely brickwork of the original school wall, punctuated by a number of secure gated entrances, one of which hosts the porter's office. And with its landlocked position among residential streets of classic Victorian terraced houses, the building offers a secluded and quiet environment from where you'd never know how close you were to bustling Queenstown Road. Among its neat selection of coffee shops and independent restaurants, Santa Maria Del Sur serves up agreeable Argentine mix, with Tonis Amalfi offering an Italian alternative.

Battersea Park is one of the best in London and, as well as being a wonderful green space to spend time in, hosts the annual Affordable Art Fair along with a range of performances, events and sporting facilities. You're also within a half mile radius of three stations: Queenstown Road (Waterloo in 7 mins), Battersea Park (Victoria in 4 mins) and Wandsworth Road (Clapham High Street in 2 mins and one stop from Clapham Junction).
