This Victorian terrace cottage sits in Brixton's most idyllic quarter - Merredene Street and Archbishop Place. Situated on a no-through road, its village style quietness belies its central location. The property enjoys a good-sized front garden and a well-maintained rear garden. Access to Brixton tube is fantastic, a twelve to fifteen minute stroll or the conveniently located bus stop a two minute walk away with numerous buses running all day and night which tend to take no more than 5 minutes down Brixton Hill. Purchasers are within a stone’s throw of Brixton Village while Brockwell Park and Herne Hill are also on your doorstep. This is a charming example of a Victorian terraced, two double bedroom house. The property has modern aspects, while retaining much of the original character. The house has a pretty entrance hall leading onto a characterful double aspect lounge and dining room with views onto the un-extended side return. High ceilings, solid wooden flooring, custom-made shelving alcoves, shutters and a wood burner, all contribute to confirm this room will be used on a regular basis. The hallway continues past the staircase to a country-cottage styled kitchen which has all you need in terms of mod cons and a lovely feel as you are surrounded by the private garden at the rear of the property. As you head up the staircase you are met by a modern bathroom which is a fantastic size, complete with walk-in shower and a bath. The two bedrooms are both generous doubles, the master runs the width of the property with a fireplace and considerable storage in the form of custom-made wardrobes. The second bedroom also benefits from an original Victorian fireplace and views out onto the neighbouring gardens. From the landing you have access to substantial loft space. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, to the proximity to all the action the area has to offer - we really like it. Freehold.

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.
