Our pick of some fabulous properties on the market in south west London and Surrey

Stunning apartments in iconic Battersea Power Station

Designed by architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, Battersea Power Station was built in two stages with Battersea A being completed in 1935 and Battersea B coming into service in 1955. It once supplied a fifth of London’s electricity, including the likes of Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament, before it was decommissioned in 1983.

There are 253 new properties available within the Grade II* listed Battersea Power Station which will be welcoming its first residents from spring this year and will be opening to the public in spring 2022. There are distinct architectural styles on offer to reflect the heritage of the building with apartments inspired by the building’s Art Deco design as well as those reflecting a 1950s aesthetic.

Prices start from £870,000. e:

Live in a brewery

Beermaking has been taking place at Ram Quarter in Wandsworth since the early 1500s making it the country’s longest continually running brewery – there is currently a small nanobrewery operating on the site. And it is now home to 14 gorgeous apartments – Coopers’ Lofts – set within the converted Young’s Ram brewery buildings.

Designed by EPR architects, the Grade-II listed buildings have been fabulously restored to offer contemporary living with a slice of history.

Prices starts from from £695,000. E

Manor in the meadow

Originally built in around 1925 and owned by the Earl of Dysart, a prolific landowner in the area, Hollybush House is set in a glorious position by the perimeter of Richmond Park and close to Ham Common and Petersham Meadows.

It was largely rented to a series of notaries and other high-profile tenants until it was sold as part of the Ham and Petersham Estate Sale in 1949.

Guide price: £7.75m. Via Savills
