If you’re looking for a new home in an area with character and long history – the heart of Wandsworth is just the place! It is one of the most exciting development zones in London today, located next to two large regeneration areas Battersea and Nine Elms.
With just a 10 minute stroll from River Thames, the area will soon look very different with so many new buildings and a rejuvenated public realm. The Transport for London is planning to remove through-traffic from the main shopping areas by re-routing the A3 and A205 South Circular. The town centre will be a lot greener, with wider pavements for pedestrians, new shopfronts and cycle-friendly roads.

If you are looking for a home with some character, this one is for you! The Ram Quarter is a new residential and retail development at the 7.7 acre site site of an old Young’s Brewery, where beer has been brewed since 1581. The new development will keep the heritage alive by incorporating the brewery’s listed buildings, housing a new microbrewery and a museum. The three-phased scheme fronting the River Wandle will deliver over 650 apartments.
This mixed-use development will replace an old vacant office-block on Wandsworth High Street. The scheme, launching in June 2015, will offer 41 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartments and a new commercial unit. Land Use Consultants have designed a beautiful landscaped courtyard for the development.
