Setting up home in a famous London landmark could become a reality, with flats now for sale at BBC Television Centre, West Ham United’s former ground and Battersea Power Station.

Television Centre

One-bedroom flat in Shepherd’s Bush, London, for £760,000

Headquarters to the BBC for more than 50 years and home to shows such as Doctor Who, Blue Peter and Strictly Come Dancing, Television Centre is a stalwart of British entertainment.

The complex closed in 2013 and the site has now been redeveloped to include around 950 homes with access to a resident’s lounge, gym, swimming pool, screening room and meeting rooms.

This one-bedroom duplex apartment sits on the first and second floor of The Helios building and overlooks landscaped courtyard gardens.

It boasts a designer Italian kitchen, underfloor heating and Siemens appliances and both White City and Shepherd’s Bush Tube stations are within easy reach.

Upton Gardens

Two-bedroom flat in Upton Park, London, for £456,500

Until 2016, West Ham United played their home games at the much-loved Boleyn Ground in Upton Park in east London.

After the team moved to the London Stadium at Stratford, the grounds were demolished to make way for Barratt’s Upton Gardens development.

It will contain 842 new homes and in homage to the history of the site, the new buildings have been designed to follow the footprint of the former stadium.

When completed, this two-bedroom flat will be on the ninth floor of Lyall House - named after the Hammers' long-serving late manager John Lyall.

It will be kitted out with underfloor heating, integrated appliances, stain free carpets and video door entry. You’ll also be able to take in the views of east London from two private balconies.

Battersea Power Station

Three-bedroom flat in Nine Elms, London, for £8.15m

The Grade II-listed coal-fired power station is one of the largest brick buildings in the world and famously featured on the cover of Pink Floyd’s album Animals and the Beatles film Help!

Since the station closed in in 1983, it’s been stuck in development hell, but the landmark and the surrounding area are finally being given a new lease of life.

It was sold to a Malaysian consortium in 2012 and is set to become a mixed-use space with 250 luxury apartments and the new headquarters for Apple.

At more than £8m, this three-bedroom four-bathroom duplex apartment due for completion around 2020 doesn’t come cheap.

It will be set on 11th and 12th floors of the power station close to one of the iconic chimneys. Along with almost 2,400 sq ft of internal living space, it will also offer two balconies and a roof terrace with far reaching views of the capital.

Additional luxury facilities will include a 24 hours concierge, a residents' lounge, bar, business centre, gym, swimming pool, spa, games room and a private cinema.
