About the property

Good size 1 double bedroom flat in perfect central London location

Winfield House is part of the Battersea Village complex, just across the road from The Thames. Set in mature and attractive gardens, this generously-sized one double bedroom flat is newly refurbished in a classically-contemporary style. Just 200 metres from trendy Battersea Square, there are vast numbers of great restaurants and bars within minute's walking distance. Or promenade along the lovely river walk and cross Battersea Bridge to Chelsea, just an easy and scenic12 minutes walk away from the flat. Battersea Village is a purpose-built Edwardian gated complex with its own well-tended gardens, where in the right weather you can sit outside with a drink or picnic. Just across from us, there is a small park, including a municipal tennis court which is free to use.

The nearest station is Clapham Junction (Europe's busiest railway station!), an 8 minute walk away. From Clapham it is a 7 minute journey to Victoria, Waterloo or 35 minutes to Gatwick Airport. There is a bus stop just outside which can take you to Chelsea, Pimlico and Victoria or towards Roehampton. There is also a 'city bike' rank just outside. The flat has excellent wifi and wifi TV. It also has it's own parking space which is available at extra cost.

This is stylish spacious flat for two people in a well maintained building in an attractive and peaceful setting, close to the river. It is in an excellent position to make the best of the fantastic facilities close by. It is not suitable for children, as there are a number of mirrored/delicate furnishings and fittings which will not withstand careless usage. But it is those things which lift it above the average rental!

About Paul Abadjian

Fiona and Paul Abadjian live mostly in Frampton, Dorset, with their two cocker spaniels, Sophie (mother) and Guinness (her son!) and 9 alpacas. Fiona is an

independent corporate travel agent and Paul is a classic Jaguar specialist dealer and collector. They use all the properties listed on the Owners Direct site themselves, so they are furnished and maintained as proper luxurious homes rather than 'rental machines' They are therefore better specified and equipped than usual, and Paul & Fiona ensure that they identify and fix any issues they discover when they are living 'on site'. Living in each place also gives them the best opportunity to impart good local advice regarding eating, shopping, cultural aspects, transport etc.

Why Paul Abadjian chose London

It is rare that one can find a purpose built, generously-proportioned and luxurious

flat in a central London location designed just for one couple. It is tucked away from any road noise (all of west London is on the Heathrow flight path, so 'plane noise is unavoidable anywhere!) and close to some fabulous amenities. It is a lovely place to base yourself if you like walking, as the river walk just by Battersea Village, gives access to wonderful and historic places without needing to resort to public transport or taxis if you don't want to. It is an oasis of calm in the middle of one of the world's great cities!

What makes this apartment unique

Whilst there are numerous brand new high rise developments on the banks of the Thames at Battersea, this complex has been where it is, set in its lovely gated gardens, for more than 100 years. It has an air of peace and tranquillity about it, which the new developments, crammed onto their small plots, on a busy road, do not have. The flat itself, though only one bedroom, is a good size, so the bedroom is quite large and has ample double mirrored wardrobes with lots of hanging space and case storage space for longer stays. There is an attractive eat-in kitchen, with all the equipment you would need for your stay. The sitting room is elegant and, again, a decent size for a central London property. There is a proper reception hall and a nicely styled and equipped bathroom. The flat is on the second floor of the building, and there is no lift, so you will need to carry your cases up the stairs. The location for local restaurants, bars, pubs, transport and river walks is really outstanding.

Spacious flat in Battersea

  • 4 of 5

Bright and spacious one bedroom flat in the Vicarage Crescent complex in Battersea. 5-10 minute walk to the 170, 44, and 49 bus lines to Victoria Station. 15 minute walk to Clapham Junction railway station, Britain’s busiest station and easy access from there to Waterloo Station, Greenwich, and Hampton Court Palace. Flat is clean, comfortable, and especially for London, quite spacious. We stayed here for 10 days in November, and I’d recommend it highly.

Comfortable flat in Battersea

  • 4 of 5

This flat is about a 20 minute walk from Clapham Junction, near Battersea Square (where there are cafes and restaurants, a good pub, and a music venue) and the riverside walk. There is no Underground stop nearby, but bus 170 to Victoria stops just outside the buildings, and other bus routes are just a short walk away at Battersea Bridge. We were able to walk along the river to Battersea Park, Chelsea, and Kensington, and visited St. Mary's Church nearby where William Blake was married, and Turner used to paint (free concerts here during the summer).

The flat was comfortable and clean, and Paul was very helpful and accommodating to our special requests. The kitchen included both a dishwasher and a washing machine, and we were able to cook meals daily.

This area of South London is on the flight path to Heathrow (and a heliport is nearby) so there is aircraft noise, but Paul disclosed this to us before we booked the flat.

We enjoyed our stay and our interactions with Paul, and would be happy to return.

Everything was perfect !

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is really nice and well furnished. It perfectly corresponds to the description of the ad. It is very quiet especially in the evening (during the day London planes break a bit this silence ...). The apartment building is inserted in a beautiful and well-kept garden full of flowers .... one morning we met also a nice squirrel !

The Apt. is easy to reach with bus 170 (passing every 10 minutes) and the lack of a nearby subway station is not really a problem. If you need a lot of Uber taxis are just around the corner.

The Battersea area is very safe and we had no problems walking around even at night.

Paul, the owner of the apt., was perfect in providing in advance all the information needed (shopping, transport) and Gosia, the apt. manager, gave us for sure a nice welcome with all the explanation needed for the stay.

Definitively I would recommend this apartment for people that don't need to stay in the (crowded) center of the city and looking for a very relaxing stay.

Personally I hope to have the possibility to come back here soon.

A little gem in Battersea.

  • 5 of 5

This perfectly sized little gem made for a cosy and enjoyable stay for two in London. Everything is as you see on the images put up. The flat is in a gated area in Battersea and nearby the River Thames. If wanting a little quiet from the London buzz, this place is perfect. This area is not serviced with a tube station nearby however, there are bus stops outside the building and round the corner which frequently service routes across the bridge to Chelsea/Victoria and into Central London. There is also, the Clapham Junction overground that takes you quickly into Central London (or outbound) which is not too far a walking distance or few bus stops away to get to. Access to lovely cafes with good cofffee(!!), nice charming restaurants/eateries and the smaller supermarkets/grocery stores/pharmacy are all within walking distance once you get your bearings around the neighbourhood. All which has been described in detail on the website's page.

The owners, Paul and Fiona are most accommodating and are at hand to answer your queries or give you assistance to make your stay a pleasant one. I, definitely, recommend this flat. In fact, be back there to stay again, soon!

Restaurants and Pubs

Our part of Battersea has become quite a ‘hot spot’ in the past couple of years, mainly because of the ‘ripple effect’ of London’s most fashionable areas spilling south from Chelsea, together with the new riverside developments that have been built in the place of semi derelict warehouse buildings that were the trademark of this part of London in the past.

Nowhere is this more obvious than at Battersea Square, which now boasts no less than seven restaurants, bars and coffee shops. In the summer, each establishment offers ‘al fresco’ drinking and dining-and the atmosphere is trendy hip and cool. The ‘Yummy Mummies’ dropping their kids off at Thomas’ school just south of the square tend to congregate to discuss their arduous day ahead, and so the square is bustling from the early part of the day right up until midnight and later, in good weather. WiFi is available at most of the restaurants and bars, so you can combine a bit of work and people watching. For those who are into such things some evenings offer a veritable mobile car show as well, and Black Range Rovers are more common than Black Cabs!

To get to Battersea Sq., turn left out of the flat and go down the stairs, walk left and left past the end of the building and follow the path into the main garden. Walk half way through the long garden, and then turn right through the arch under Eaton House. Then head diagonally left to the gate and turn right on the main road-Battersea Sq. is 100 yards along. We particularly enjoy coffee and fresh-baked croissants at Gayle’s, and Queenswood restaurant is excellent in general. Melanzana, the Italian is also very good, and we gather that the newly-refurbished London House (under Gordon Ramsay’s umbrella) is worth a try.

Walk south down Battersea High St. passing Thomas’ School on your right, and you will come to the excellent Woodman pub. Great atmosphere and good food. Good place to sit with the papers, by the fire on a rainy Sunday!

Carry further on down Battersea High St., passing under the railway arch, and you will find Mokka on your left. The World’s smallest coffee bar, they serve perhaps the World’s best coffee and pastries!

Beyond that is Bariloche Argentinian restaurant. Really good food, pleasant service, and nice in the summer when they open the front up!

Transport and Walking

Keep going straight on for a further 5 minutes walk, and then bear right to Clapham Junction Station, which serves numerous parts of the UK, as well as Victoria, London Bridge and Waterloo stations and Gatwick Airport.

Otherwise the 170 bus which stops just outside our complex will take you through Chelsea and Pimlico to Victoria. Otherwise, walk along the river walk to the right for 6 minutes until you reach Battersea Bridge. There are numerous buses that stop here and will take you to South Kensington, Kensington, Knightsbridge, Mayfair and all points beyond. There is also a Bicycle rank (‘Boris Bikes’, now courtesy of Santander!) which you can rent for half an hour or longer once you have registered.

From the flat, you can walk to Kings Road Chelsea in around 11 minutes, walking along the river walk (river on the left), and crossing Battersea Bridge and going straight on. If you like walking and taking in your surroundings, Chelsea and Kensington beyond it are famous and historic areas, and taking the time to wander their back-streets can be both fascinating and rewarding.

Or, cross the main road past the end of Battersea Bridge and keep following the river walk to the wonderful Battersea Park. Well worth a visit. The restaurants indicated along the way between Battersea and Albert Bridges are very good.

We particularly like The Butcher & Grill, where you can sit in or outside, and has a very useful deli counter as well.

Supermarkets (and more Eating and Drinking)

There is no full-scale supermarket on our doorstep (though there is a little general store on the way to Battersea Square), but if you walk down Battersea High St. and cross York Road and carry on along Falcon Road, there is a small Tesco on your left. For something bigger, walk under the railway tunnel and turn left, there is a good Lidl and then a Boots and a huge Asda all on the left. Otherwise, continue straight ahead from the tunnel, cross the road with the Arding & Hobbs (Debenhams) Dept. store on your left, and you will find a Waitrose on your right, and an M&S almost opposite. If you suddenly feel the need for more restaurants and bars at this point, carry straight on into Northcote Road, where there is a HUGE choice. Really buzzy at night with no one over a certain age there (apart from us!) Great fun!
