2 bedroom apartment for saleEthelburga Tower, Rosenau Road, London, SW11
Positioned on the eighth floor of Ethelburga Tower is this remarkable two-bedroom apartment with south-facing balcony and views over Battersea Park. The apartment was comprehensively remodelled by architect Carl Trenfield in 2012.
Entry to the apartment is via the eighth-floor mezzanine level. The accommodation includes an open-plan kitchen / dining room, two bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC, and balcony with far-reaching views over South London.
According to the architect, the scheme was designed to create an urban / rural hybrid, melding the original features of the 1960s building with softer natural materials such as wood panelling. The kitchen, as an example of this fusion, is contained in a timber box with a mixture of ash and composite worktops. The panelling continues in the second bedroom, currently configured as a sitting room / snug, which is completely clad in wood. The urban aesthetic is represented in the beautiful terrazzo floor which runs throughout the apartment, and in the immaculately maintained communal areas with exposed slate walls and concrete benches.
An intelligent use of space is another key feature of the design, preserving the original built-in storage cupboards whilst creating new and innovative ways of using the apartment. One such example is the integrated ‘study’ area in the kitchen, which has views over Battersea Park. Double sliding doors into the snug / guest bedroom are designed to create a flexible space.
There is unallocated parking for residents on the estate, and an additional unlimited permit can be acquired for guests.
The apartment is very well positioned just off Albert Bridge Road, which runs towards the River Thames alongside the western edge of Battersea Park. There is a good selection of local shops on nearby Parkgate Road, along with some very good independent restaurants and the well-regarded Prince of Wales gastro pub. The stunning Albert Bridge links Battersea to Chelsea and all that is on offer on the King’s Road, including The Royal Court Theatre and Saatchi Gallery. Just around the corner is Battersea’s Creative District, home to the design studios of Vivienne Westwood and Victoria Beckham, and the Royal College of Art.
Clapham Junction is the nearest train station (approximately fifteen minutes’ walk) and there are a good number of buses that run into the West End and Chelsea. The London Underground can be picked up at Sloane Square or South Kensington, both a short bus ride away. Transport links will soon be enhanced by the proposed extension of the Northern Line to Battersea following the planned regeneration of Battersea Power Station and Nine Elms.
