Property details

This stunning one double bedroom top floor Victorian period conversion flat is split over three levels with an entrance on the first floor and stairs that lead up to the landing and an attractive modern bathroom. The spacious double bedroom is tucked away quietly at the back of the building with views of the neighbouring gardens at the rear. The stairs continue to meander up to the light and airy open-plan reception and kitchen at the top of the house. Skylights and windows with sky views out across the large flat roof towards the London skyline make this a lovely bright living space, perfect for entertaining. The reception room has fantastic vaulted ceilings and ample room for a dedicated TV area with a separate area to dine with space for a large dining table. The kitchen has all you need in terms of mod cons and there is also a lovely snug zone built-in to the eaves which provides extra seating for all occasions. The flat is ready for someone to move straight into but with over 630 square feet of internal living space on offer, there is also the opportunity for a purchaser to really stamp their own mark and create a personal space which matches their specific tastes. Craster Road is a quiet street located in a sought after residential pocket with easy access to Brixton Hill and local amenities on the adjacent roads that include cafes, newsagents, a post office and the popular refurbished Elm Park Tavern. The property is a seventeen minute stroll down Brixton Hill to Brixton tube station and the culinary wonders of Brixton Village. This property has access to the extensive bus network on Brixton Hill which is just a few minutes’ walk with multiple buses flowing down the hill to the tube station in a couple of minutes and into London’s central district (133, 159, 59, 333 etc.). It is a five minute walk from what many local residents champion as London's best open space, Brockwell Park and a pleasant walk through the park leads to Herne Hill station and all the amenities (a fifteen minute walk). Tulse Hill and Streatham Hill stations are also within reach (a fifteen minute walk) with rail links including to London Bridge, Clapham Junction and Victoria. Chain-free and early viewings are recommended.

Brixton is a melting pot of culture, cuisine and creativity. An explosion of inventive, new restaurants, pop-ups, fashion stores and art galleries sit alongside the many great pubs, music venues and nightclubs that have been around for years. Transport links are excellent, with London Underground (Victoria Line) trains reaching central London in 12 minutes. If you’re craving green space, Brockwell Park and its famed Art Deco lido are close by. Brixton brings together all the best things about London and is one of the most vibrant and diverse places to live south of the river.
