Urban mix of history and hipster
BOROUGH is now one of London’s most lively and coveted neighbourhoods, a place where history and hipster meet. There’s much more to the area than the famous food market. This is Tate Modern and Shard territory, a superbly central address.
Ten years ago, most new developments were boutiquestyle small warehouse and office conversions. These were eagerly snapped up by loft-loving locals but now Borough ensnares bigger-budget buyers. Brandon House, right, on a prominent corner site opposite Borough Tube station, reflects demand for more upscale homes. It includes mews houses with roof gardens priced from £1,949,995 and flats overlooking a tranquil courtyard from £989,995. Call Crest Nicholson on 020 3437 1101.
