We are pleased to bring to market this beautiful Victorian four bedroom house, situated in the extremely popular residential pocket of Holmewood Gardens, a short stroll from Brixton Hill. Holmewood Gardens is a quiet residential street which surrounds a pretty garden square and is within a fifteen to seventeen minute walk to Brixton town centre, or a few minutes if you were to jump on one of the many buses that flow down Brixton Hill.
The property has been lovingly cared for by the current owners and is a light and airy mix of contemporary design and characterful features which include; period fireplaces, coving and Victorian tiling in the hallways. With acres of room, three/four bedrooms and leafy views across the park opposite, it is hard to remind yourself that you are indeed first stop on the Victoria line in Brixton, located within close proximity to central London. The property has a characterful reception room at the front of the building with double doors that lead through into the dining room/second reception room. Tucked away at the rear you have an eat-in kitchen diner with a door at the rear that opens out onto the private garden.
On the upper floors sit three double bedrooms, a smaller fourth bedroom and three bathrooms. The master bedroom is a fantastic size, running the width of the property with a bay window that allows natural light to flood into the room. The master leads through a walk-in wardrobe and into a spacious en-suite bathroom complete with bath and separate walk-in shower. This room is configured as a double bedroom in similar houses on the road and it could be altered to a fourth double bedroom, should that suit the new purchasers needs. The total square footage is large and allows potential purchasers to alter the layout to best suit their own lifestyle. Subject to permission there is the opportunity to increase the footprint by altering the un-converted loft.
The area is highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to Brixton, Streatham Hill and Clapham. Streatham Hill station is a twelve minute walk with direct trains into Clapham Junction, Victoria and London Bridge. Within an eighteen minute walk you reach the centre of Brixton and Clapham Common is twenty one minutes away.
On one hand you have everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the culinary delights of Brixton Village, to large brand-shops and cracking transport links, first stop on the Victoria Line. Multiple buses run up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes and fortunately this house is a stone's throw from a local bus stop with buses coming and going every other minute. On the other hand you have Clapham High Street and its multitude of restaurants and bars. There are excellent transport links with two Northern Line underground stations, Clapham High Street Station on the Overground and numerous bus routes to other areas of London. Brockwell Park and Clapham Common are both within walking distance and having the South Circular on your doorstep is perfect for anyone with a vehicle.

Loved by those in the know, Brixton has a massively dedicated fan-base in people in search of culture, cuisine and nightlife. The redevelopment of Brixton's covered market has created a mecca to global cuisine; as well as the iconic cinema and arts venue, Windrush square with its new museum and Tate library, the many great pubs, restaurants, music venues and night clubs make it clear why this is one of the fastest growing areas of London in the popularity stakes. Great transport links (with further proposed improvements) and Brockwell park, regarded by many as the capital's best open space complete the set of lifestyle bonuses in this very fresh and vibrant corner of London.
