Queenstown Rd, SW8 3RL

Living here suits us as we work close by and had access to the facilities - shops, gym, restaurants - that we need.

Living here suits us as we work close by and had access to the facilities - shops, gym, restaurants - that we need. However if you would like a vibrant nightlife and a wide range of bars and restaurants and shops this area May not tick those boxes. The street could benefit from some regeneration as there quite a lot of takeaways and ship fronts that look quite shabby.

Transport

There is good overland train access to Waterloo and Victoria from Queenstown Road and Battersea Park Stations. 452 and 137 buses are regular and the nearest tube is Sloane Square - about a 15 to 30 minute bus journey (depending on time of day travelling). At rush hour it can be busy to get the bus to Sloane Square and walking can be quicker.

Community

The accommodation is mainly flats and the age range is mostly mid 20s to late 30s - a mix of owners and renters. The street can be quite noisy, especially at rush hour but if property is double glazed this isn’t an issue. Parking is relatively limited compared to the amount of households.

Amenities

Queenstown Road has close access to groceries such as a Sainsbury’s Local and Tesco Express, as well as a couple of smaller corner shops, one of which has a post office counter. There are services such as pharmacies, dry cleaning, nail bars and hair dressers, however no clothes shops or specialist shops such as a butcher or bakery. There are a couple of restaurants and pubs, but a better range can be found in nearby Clapham Common and Northcote Road. The extensive and beautiful Battersea Park is also just a 15 minute walk.

There are families that have lived here for generations which gives it a community feel.

This area has something for everyone and I would recommend it to anyone

Transport

There is a good range of transport links to take you into or out of town. Battersea Park and Queenstown Road stations provide trains straight into Victoria and Waterloo and there are a range of buses that take you into town. The tube is coming to Nine Elms in Battersea and there is also the station at Clapham Common. Battersea is also littered with Santander Cycle points which are extremely useful

Community

The population of Battersea is divers which is one of its attractions. There are families that have lived here for generations which gives it a community feel. There is are a good mix of home owners particularly on the very beautiful Shaftsbury Estate. We have to live with being under the flight path and have the trains running through the area but it is a small price to pay

Amenities

Having lived in Battersea for the past 30 years the quality and quantity of restaurants has increased considerably as has the range of cuisines. There are loads of pubs now ranging from the typical local to gastro pubs, providing a range of beers wines and food. Clapham Common and Battersea Park are fantastic assets for the area and great places to spend time whether it is visiting the zoo in Battersea Park or playing tennis or just chilling out in the open spaces of the common. Transport links are great and it is close enough in to walk if you so choose. Great place to live or visit

A lot of traffic noise

Like - closeness to certain places Dislike - everything else

Transport

Transport links are great though the buses are always busy in the morning and you have to wait for a few, sometimes they don't open the doors. Could be better in that sense. A lot of noise from traffic on Wandsworth road which is a very negative side.

Community

A lot of traffic noise, kids playing outside all the time without adult supervision, not very good behaviour on my block.

Amenities

There are a lot of shops around which is quite good, not that many bars around Wandsworth Road Station but Clapham isn't that far.
