Victorian Heights is a terrifically original development, retaining its grace and unique stature as a former educational establishment in the area. Keeping the ‘boys’ and ‘girls’ entrances is a perfect way of maintaining this great mix of modern and classic architecture.
Once off the main road, you approach the school building with a sense of awe towering up above the skyline. Venturing into the grounds and through the boys entrance, you walk up to the third floor.
A wide hallway greets you leading straight into your open plan fully integrated kitchen, nestling in a dining table and a snug.
The main event is the vaulted double reception with floor to ceiling windows and skylights, a grandiose space to entertain, relax and recline. A cosy TV room is tucked away, great for a cuppa and a read.
Adjacent, is the first of four bedrooms with great storage and a family bathroom off the communal hallway. Big under-stairs storage leads upstairs to three further bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room. Cut into the top of the building, clever angular storage & velux windows throw in tonnes of natural light. A further family bathroom with tub & airing cupboard is just off the hall.
Up onto the roof, 360° views of the city and surrounding urban area are afforded, unblemished from it’s Victorian past. This deck provides 8 metres x 5 metres of safe outdoor space, bigger than the majority of urban gardens in Battersea.
A day-time porter ensures the smooth running of things from an office within the grounds and off-street parking is provided.
Away from your home, the local area is bustling with restaurants, pubs and hangouts. Two established local boozers include The Victoria and Old Town Tavern, within a 5 minute walk either way from Victorian Heights. The Magic Garden, also short walk away, is a Queensdown Road classic that has been a live music institution for decades.
Your local Sainsbury’s is a 7 minute walk away, and closest ASDA superstore an 8 minute drive or 20 minute walk.
Transport are at a premium, you have two close train stations, Queenstown Road & Battersea Park, the former speeding you to Waterloo in around 10 mins, and latter one stop away from London Victoria for the Victoria & District & Circle Lines.
