Lexadon has transformed a disused car park on Smedley Street, SW8 into an attractive modern apartment building that’s home to nine, new high specification flats.
Work at the site, which once housed a car park that served the ex-police station opposite, involved the erection of a three-storey building to provide nine self-contained flats, the provision of refuse, recycling and a communal amenity space and soft and hard landscaping.
The new building, which comprises one three-bedroom, four one-bedroom and four two-bedroom flats, was designed to complement the locally listed ex-police station and its new extension opposite, which is also owned by Lexadon, while providing a more logical balance to the surrounding area.
The property is 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, 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 and is also only a short distance from Brixton and Clapham town centres with their wide selection 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.
