A regeneration that preserves history

Finefair offers a professional service for anybody who is looking to find the most unique investment properties Wandsworth has to offer. There are a number of interesting options, including modern builds as well as listed period homes. Whatever your taste, you can find the right property here.

Riverside settings

In London you can find a surprising number of listed buildings along the banks of the River Thames. There are structures from various periods, celebrating a number of different industries as well as the diverse heritage of the city. Incredibly a number of these properties look very run down even. It is always wonderful then when regeneration arrives.

Cooper’s Lofts is a project that fits this bill perfectly. The building was formerly the Young’s Brewery and was the oldest in Britain in continuous use, dating back to 1533. Sadly it closed in 2006 when the brewer had to move operations to cut costs. The original building was quickly sold because it occupied valuable riverside real estate.

The transformation of the old brewery is incredible. It will become 14 industrial style lofts but retain all of the heritage buildings and features. The former stable block will become a public space with stunning architecture. The original brewing equipment and beam engine will be put on display in a museum on the site. A small brewery will also continue to operate, ensuring the legacy of the operation.

This development is part of the brand new Ram Quarter. In total there will be 661 new homes, a brand new landmark tower rising 36 storeys, and new retail space. It could become one of the most vibrant parts of the South East of Central London.

What to look for?

The riverside location is a big selling point for the area. There are plenty of other benefits too. Firstly the brewery is only a short distance from Wandsworth Park, giving easy access to beautiful greenery and sports areas. Then there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants nearby. If that wasn’t enough, there are also good transport links. East Putney is on the District Line and Wandsworth Town Station is on the South Western Railway.

These stand out as some of the best investment properties Wandsworth has to offer. If you are interested, the Finefair team can help you. Our services maximise value and we work hard to build great relationships with all investors. All you have to do is contact us.
