Prince of Wales Drive: Luxury homes on sale in London's new leisure capital
A sprawling neighbourhood of leisure
Prince of Wales Drive is surrounded by 2.5 acres of private landscaped gardens, giving it a much needed touch of nature, while one of Central London's largest green areas – 200-acre Battersea Park – is right on the doorstep. A few minutes’ walk to Chelsea Bridge and just over a mile from fashionable Sloane Square.
Capital of culture
Battersea is within easy reach of some of London's most famous galleries, including the Tate Britain, Tate Modern and Saatchi Gallery. But you don't have to look beyond the South Bank to find art and culture in the city.
The sculpture park in Embassy Gardens celebrates the diversity of London's arts scene and features the work of up-and-coming artists. The nearby Battersea Arts Centre, housed in the historic Battersea Town Hall building, is also the home of experimental theatre in the city.
In addition, Battersea is renowned for being the creative base of designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Victoria Beckham and milliner Philip Treacy.
Regal riverside living at Prince of Wales Drive
Those thinking of investing in residential property in London's most exciting new district couldn't ask for a more ideal location than Prince of Wales Drive.
This residential complex of 955 homes is a mere five-minute walk from two overground stations – Battersea Park and Queenstown Road – as well as the upcoming Battersea Power Station. Tunnelling is already underway on the Northern Line extension for the London Underground that will connect Nine Elms and Battersea with the West End and the city in less than 15 minutes.
Besides enjoying modern comforts in every apartment, residents also have exclusive access to a 17-metre swimming pool, vitality pool, sauna, eighth-floor roof terrace and 24-hour concierge service to take care of everything they need.
Prince of Wales Drive is the first project undertaken by property developer St William, a joint venture between Berkeley Group and National Grid.
"Prince of Wales Drive illustrates St William's aspirations to be renowned for the quality of the landscape and open space as well as delivering the wider Berkeley Group vision of creating fantastic homes in amazing places,” says St William chairman Sean Ellis.
Prince of Wales Drive is expected to open its doors to residents in late 2019 or early 2020. One, two- and three-bedroom apartments are now available for reservations.
