55 Union Grove is situated in a sought-after tree-lined residential street close to Stockwell station and the Wandsworth Road overground station.
In January 2019, permission was granted for the demolition of the existing building and the erection of two four-storey buildings to provide 11 self-contained flats.
The front of the site currently comprises a three-storey 1950’s building in brown London Stock brick with a flat-topped mansard roof; the building drops to a single-storey further into the site with a two-storey element at the rear.
Lexadon’s new building at the site has been designed to complement the new extension at neighbouring property, the former Clapham Police Station – a listed building to the North-West of the site.
Works at 55 Union Grove will comprise the demolition of the existing three-storey building and the erection of two sensitively designed four-storey buildings to provide 11 high specification, self-contained flats each offering an open-plan kitchen with living area and a modern bathroom. Waste and cycle storage as well as soft and hard landscaping will also be provided.
55 Union Grove is conveniently located within easy reach of all the local shops and amenities along Wandsworth Road to the north and Clapham Road to the south including gyms, cafés, restaurants. Local transport links include Wandsworth Road Overground Station (part of the newly-opened London Overground orbital train network), with services into London Victoria and London Bridge, an eight-minute walk from the property; Stockwell Underground Station, with Northern and Victoria line services, is located a thirteen-minute walk from the property while several local bus services provide quick and easy access into the City, West End, Clapham, Tooting, Croydon and more. The property also lies just a few minutes’ walk from the popular Larkhall Park which boasts a community garden, football pitches, tennis courts, children’s play area and café while Clapham Common and Battersea Park, with its popular Children’s zoo, are just a 30-minute stroll away. The property is also only a short distance from Brixton and Clapham town centres with their plethora of markets, restaurants, bars, cinemas and clubs, while London’s royal parks, iconic buildings, statues, attractions and the River Thames are just a short train or bus ride away.
