Pimlico estate agents Citywest Homes Residential are pleased to be selling a two double-bedroom apartment that benefits from a balcony overlooking pretty communal grounds. Key Features: ● 2 bedroom flat ● Gardens views ● Grade 2 listed development ● Riverside living ● Communal boiler Wilkins House is set just moments from the banks of the River Thames, with Chelsea Bridge and Sloane Square a short stroll away. The apartment has been neutrally decorated throughout and benefits from a generous amount of natural light. Whoever buys this property will enjoy views of the majestic Battersea Power Station. This apartment for sale in Pimlico is priced at £540,000. The Pimlico property market CWHR Pimlico estate agents say the neighbourhood is an affordable alternative to neighbouring Belgravia and Westminster, therefore attracting first-time buyers moving out of rental accommodation. Residents can easily walk across Chelsea Bridge to the boutiques and fine dining of Sloane Square, although it won't be long before the Battersea Power Station complex is up and running. The Pimlico property market Property portal Rightmove reports that in the past year house prices in Pimlico were up 29% on 2014, and up 36% on levels in 2012. The current overall average price of a property for sale in Pimlico is £1,128,442. Pimlico is characterised by its white stucco fronted buildings and genteel squares - a rare example of a tranquil London that harks back to days gone by. There are three garden squares to choose from, surrounded by five- and six-storey houses. Many have been turned into flats - sometime lateral examples that span two properties - but some whole dwellings remain, especially in the side roads. Large houses for sale in Pimlico also pop up on St George's Drive and Belgrave Road - two of the neighbourhood's main access routes. Pimlico is also noted for its managed estates, including Churchill Gardens, Lillington Gardens, Millbank Estate and Dolphin Square. Grosvenor Waterside - off Ebury Bridge Road - and The Panoramic provide new build and resale opportunities. A little more about Pimlico itself The development of Pimlico can be attributed to the powerful Grosvenor family, who came in possession of the area by way of marriage between Mary Davies (who had inherited much of central London) and Sir Thomas Grosvenor. Although it took some 150 years for the family to get round to developing Pimlico, heir Richard Grosvenor finally hired Thomas Cubitt to map out the neighbourhood in 1824. The legacy is the grand stucco-fronted terraces and squares that characterise the Pimlico of today. The neighbourhood now falls within the Duke of Westminster’s Grosvenor Estate. Pimlico Life Pimlico is located close to the River Thames yet central enough for residents to walk to Victoria and Westminster. The Moreton Triangle is favoured among residents for its numerous boutiques and restaurants, although a stroll along Warwick Way and the 'Pimlico Grid' will also yield a decent cup of coffee and plenty of retail opportunities. Food lovers flock to the weekend farmers' market at Tachbrook Triangle, while specialist stores Rippon Cheese and Gastronomia Deli further fuel the 'foodie' vibe in Pimlico. Pimlico is well served by public transport, with its own tube station (Victoria line) and Victorian mainline station within walking distance. The number 24 bus serves the neighbourhood and runs to a 24 hour timetable.
