Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market this unique two bedroom house with private garden and an atrium, ideally located between Clapham and Brixton High Streets in a secure, gated setting.

A rare opportunity to live in a one of a kind, two double bedroom house, nestled quietly off Bedford Road, ideally located between Clapham and Brixton High Streets. This unique 19th Century converted Printworks has been featured in Marie Claire & the Sunday Times Style Magazine, and started life a Georgian stable block, before being developed over time. The property is tucked away securely behind an industrial steel door with an entry phone and surrounded by neighbouring gardens.

This beautifully presented home offers just shy of 800 square feet of internal living space, packed full of character. Natural light is a running theme in this property with floor to ceiling glass windows and multiple skylights which all contribute to the bright and airy atmosphere throughout. The South-facing open plan living space has real WOW factor and it is clear the whole house has been developed with care and attention to detail.

Vaulted ceilings create a fantastic entertaining area with plenty of room to dine and socialise comfortably. The living space benefits from underfloor heating throughout, wooden parquet flooring, plenty of clever built-in storage, a bio ethanol fire and bi-fold doors that open to allow the living space to flow seamlessly from the kitchen through to the private garden. The modern eat-in kitchen diner has plenty of storage space, a convenient breakfast bar and space for a dining table. The low-maintenance, secluded garden is the perfect space to relax and unwind in the warmer months.

The double bedroom on the ground floor is a good size with a private atrium which is perfect for green fingered tenants and allows air to flow through the house. A spiral staircase leads to the mezzanine level, a flexible space with a multitude of different potential uses and could be reconfigured to suit. This versatile area is currently set up as a fantastic home office, study area with views out across the neighbouring rooftops, and a snug sleeping area, which is ideal for guests. The two separate sleeping areas share a contemporary bathroom with a sunken bath and views over the private atrium.

This property is a truly unique offering for anyone seeking their own private haven, away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to both Clapham and Brixton to enjoy all the benefits that these in-demand areas have to offer.

Clapham area highlights

There’s something for everyone in Clapham and it draws an eclectic crowd. Clapham Common buzzes with activity and there’s a diverse mix of restaurants, shops, independent boutiques and nightlife, along with some wonderful architecture. The local schools are excellent and the transport options plentiful, with three London Underground (Northern Line) stations in close proximity and frequent London Overground trains from Clapham High Street station. It rarely feels overcrowded here, despite the abundance of things to do, and Clapham endures as one of the most desirable places to live in south London.
