Lavender Sweep is a curved residential street located in between Battersea Rise and Lavender Hill in Battersea. The residential, tree-lined road is made up of Victorian terraced houses, with the occasional purpose-built block. As the road is a one way street, it is generally quite quiet, but it can be used as a cut through to the amenities of St John’s Road.
The road takes its name from the history of the area. Before Clapham Junction station was built, the area was primarily rural and specialised in growing lavender. Today, the location of the road is ideal for professionals as the transport links of the station are just a short walk away. Clapham Junction station has direct links to London Waterloo and London Victoria, so local residents can get in and out of the City in minutes.
There are plenty of amenities in the area for occupants of Lavender Sweep. The popular Breakfast Club is just around the corner, where you can treat yourself to delicious unique breakfasts and brunches, or you can visit the secretive ‘King of Ladies Man’ where you can sip delicious cocktails into the late hours. For delicious hand-crafted wines and tasting sessions, the independent wine-merchant Humble Grape, (which is part of Portico Places) is within walking distance. For cosy dinners and lunches, the newly opened Pho is renowned for its mouth-watering Vietnamese street food and Scoffer’s Kitchen serves up flavoursome food in a cosy atmosphere. For the weekly shop, Marks and Spencer, Waitrose and Asda are just moments away.
Lavender Sweep is located just minutes from Clapham Common. The large open green space is ideal for those looking for peaceful scenery in the midst of London. The Common comes alive during the summer months, and local residents are able to enjoy the music festivals and boot camps that take place there.
Lavender Sweep attracts families and professionals alike due to its proximity to the station and the diverse range of amenities in the area.
