Property details

A characterful two bedroom flat in an attractive Victorian conversion on a sought after road. Situated in Fairmount Road the property is a short walk from local shops, Brockwell Park and the enormous variety of nightlife on offer in central Brixton. With three overground stations on different lines within easy reach, as well as first stop on the Victoria line at Brixton tube station, its location cannot be overstated. This flat comprises a light and airy open-plan living area which spans the width of the building with a bay window and ample room to relax and dine. Two bedrooms share a contemporary bathroom, all off a split-level entrance hall. The master bedroom is tucked away at the building with views over the neighbouring gardens. The smaller second bedroom/study is ideal for anyone looking to rent out or use as a guest room/child’s bedroom/home office. The flat is a tasteful mix of modern design and characterful features. Fairmount Road is situated a ten-minute stroll to the new culinary and nightlife mecca of South London, Brixton and a five-minute stroll to the green open spaces of Brockwell Park. A fifteen-minute walk across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes and restaurants of Herne Hill. Purchasers have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance and they include F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub. This characterful first floor flat is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action but would prefer to avoid the car horns and the noise of late night revellers. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is a short stroll down the hill and multiple buses run up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes and through into central London. The buses offer a great alternative to the tube and train stations for commuters into the city centre. Fortunately, this flat is a stone's throw from a local bus stop with buses coming and going every other minute. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style to the quiet neighbourhood feel and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer - we really like it. Share of freehold.

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.
