Montevetro, Battersea SW11
Montevetro is a unique waterside building which stands at 20 storeys high in parts, and remains one of the most popular and sought-after addresses on the river. Montevetro provides magnificent views over the river, as well as panoramic views over Chelsea and much of West London from the higher floors.
With approximately 103 apartments arranged over five connected blocks, this contemporary, stylish building combines luxury riverside living with fantastic on-site facilities. The apartments benefit from enormous floor-to-ceiling windows, private balconies or terraces, air conditioning, secure underground car parking, and a 24-hour security and concierge service. Many of the apartments also have wood floors throughout and under-floor heating. Residents also have access to a private gym and outdoor tennis court.
The iconic Montevetro building was designed by Richard Rogers and is situated on a site formerly occupied by an early 20th Century flour mill – which closed during the 1980s. Montevetro is Italian for “glass mountain”, and the building – with its west-facing side being almost completely glazed – certainly encapsulates that image. The east-facing side of the building has magnificent glass lift towers, and a more solid appearance due to its panels of terracotta cladding. The health and leisure club facilities are provided in a separate low-rise block with views towards the main building across a lawned area.
Montevetro is situated in Battersea, near Chelsea and the well-known King’s Road area.
King’s Road is one of London’s most popular shopping locations and is home to a mix of department stores, designer shops like Armani and Jimmy Choo, trendy boutiques and quirky independent stores. There is also a theatre, plus a few art studios and galleries – including the innovative Saatchi Gallery.
Near to the Montevetro building are some great restaurants, such as Thai on the River and Banyan on Thames within the Falcon Wharf development. Both have stunning river views and are popular with locals.
Sitting right on the banks of the river, Montevetro not only affords beautiful river and city views, but also the perfect surroundings for walking, cycling or discovering local wildlife. Nearby Battersea Park is spread over 200 acres and is situated on marshland reclaimed from the Thames. It has peaceful walks and is home to a wide variety of birds and plant species.
There are plenty of good transport links nearby, including train stations at Battersea Park and Clapham Junction. Victoria is reachable within ten minutes. The nearest tube station is Sloane Square, which is just a short walk away.
