Property details

A spacious, well-designed one double bedroom garden flat, in a Victorian converted house. Margate Road is located in a popular residential pocket of pretty Victorian terraces, equidistant to both Brixton and Clapham, and will appeal to purchasers who are contemplating moving to both areas. The property boasts a bright, separate reception room, flooded with light from the large sash windows, which offer views over the attractive neighbouring houses. High ceilings add to the airy feel, whilst a charming feature fireplace provides a sense of character. The double bedroom is a fantastic size and also has some built-in storage. Tucked away at the rear of the property is the well-extended eat in kitchen, leading onto a sun-drenched conservatory, which allows natural light to flood the entire room. Doors open onto the secluded South facing private garden: this sunny, peaceful space feels worlds away from the hussle and bustle and is perfect for enjoying during the summer months. This Victorian conversion is nestled on Margate Road, a sleepy road which is highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to both Brixton and Clapham. The bars and restaurants of Acre Lane are a short walk and within a twelve minute stroll down the road is everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the extremely popular Brixton Village, to large brand shops and cracking transport links. In the other direction is the vibrant and diverse Clapham High Street offering great nightlife and culinary delights. Potential purchasers will benefit from both the Northern Line (Clapham North and Clapham Common tube stations) and the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station). There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, size, outside space and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer.
