One of the most iconic landmarks on the southwest London skyline is without a doubt Battersea Power Station. But rather than simply visiting this striking structure, how about living inside it? A truly unique experience, just six minutes from the brand-new tube station of the same name, this duplex apartment offers luxury living in a coal-fired power station from the 1920s. Inside the home, you have incredible views of its world-famous chimneys from your two private balconies (one of which leads to a rooftop garden for residents). But it’s not just about the exterior. We love the decor in the apartment, such as the living space with its mid-century furnishings and rich wooden parquet floors. In this open-plan area, you’ll also find a stylish, charcoal-coloured kitchen with white tiles – make your espresso at the counter before reclining on the plush, L-shaped sofa. Another excellent spot for relaxation is the bathroom. With a copper, roll-top bathtub, there’s a vintage vibe that resonates with the historical building in which you’re located. Don't forget to take a wander around this sublime setting to find deluxe extras like the residents’ gym and indoor pool.
