From the colourful parade of shops that lines it pedestrianised centre, to its long-standing pubs, much-loved restaurants and renowned weekly market, Herne Hill is teeming with independent businesses and its devoted local community works hard to retain its unique charm. There are several outstanding schools and connections are great, with regular trains from Herne Hill station going to London Victoria, Blackfriars and Wimbledon. It’s crowning glory is Brockwell Park, one of the most beautiful parks in London, and its Art Deco lido and café, which are popular all year round.Herne Hill area guide

The modern kitchen is conveniently inset into the room and provides all you need in terms of storage. The double bedroom is bright and also tucked away quietly at the back of the building with a large window that overlooks the peaceful neighbouring gardens at the rear. Last but not least there is a contemporary bathroom off the central entrance hall. The apartment has the added advantage of substantial demised loft space above the reception room which offers fantastic storage options and could be altered to vault the ceilings or create a mezzanine area. The property is situated in a popular location and unlike a lot of similar conversions, the majority of the total square footage is useable living space with good room dimensions, as opposed to being distributed within larger hallways.
