Property details

We are pleased to bring to market this two double bedroom Victorian conversion flat, situated in the extremely popular residential pocket of Holmewood Gardens, a short stroll from Brixton Hill. Holmewood Gardens is a quiet residential street which surrounds a pretty garden square and is within a fifteen to seventeen-minute walk to Brixton town centre, or a few minutes if you were to jump on one of the many buses that flow down Brixton Hill. As you enter the property on the first floor you are met with an open plan reception and kitchen spanning the width of the building with a bay window which overlooks the beautiful park which is directly outside the property. The kitchen is modern and there is ample room to both relax and dine. Two similar size double bedrooms lead off the bright hallway with windows overlooking the neighbouring gardens in this beautiful patch of Victorian Brixton. As this attractive converted house is the end of terrace it is wider than the rest of the houses in this terrace row which results in a comfortable second bedroom and the new purchaser will benefit from a window in the hallway which contributes to the light and airy feel throughout. The area is highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to Brixton, Streatham Hill and Clapham. Streatham Hill station is a twelve-minute walk with direct trains into Clapham Junction, Victoria and London Bridge. Within an eighteen minute walk, you reach the centre of Brixton and Clapham Common is twenty-one minutes away. On one hand you have everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the culinary delights of Brixton Village to large brand-shops and cracking transport links, first stop on the Victoria Line. Multiple buses run up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes and fortunately, this flat is a stone's throw from a local bus stop with buses coming and going every other minute. On the other hand, you have Clapham High Street and its multitude of restaurants and bars. There are excellent transport links with two Northern Line underground stations, Clapham High Street Station on the Overground and numerous bus routes to other areas of London. Brockwell Park and Clapham Common are both within walking distance and having the South Circular on your doorstep is perfect for anyone with a vehicle.

Brixton area highlights

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.
