With its iconic white chimneys, Battersea Power Station has been a much-loved part of London's skyline since the 1930s and a recent redevelopment of the building has created some of the UK capital's most covetable homes – like this studio apartment. Although only intended for one or two guests, there's a generous amount of space and lots of natural light from the floor-to-ceiling window. The minimalist kitchen is also decently sized and more than well enough equipped to keep you out of London's copious restaurants. We're fond of the contemporary style, particularly the parquet flooring and chic furnishings, while the fact that guests get access to a shared gym, sauna and swimming pool is another big perk. Elsewhere on the site, there's a wealth of shops, restaurants and even a theatre, not to mention the banks of the River Thames footsteps away. There's plenty to do in Battersea Park five minutes' walk away as well, from boating on the lake and visiting the art gallery to taking kids around the zoo.

About Nine Elms

A fast-transforming locality on the banks of the Thames, larger in area than Monaco, Nine Elms is set to become one of London’s most vibrant districts. Much has changed since its humble farmland and locomotive works beginnings; in their place now stand gleaming mirrored skyscrapers and upscale private residences that dominate the horizon. One of which boasts the world’s first floating sky pool, a leg-trembling 115 feet above the ground....
