Property details

This fantastic property is a unique garden flat, a stunning example of what can be done when one of these majestic townhouses is converted with care and attention to detail. Set within Raleigh Gardens, which is a desirable residential road tucked off Brixton Hill, the property benefits from a quiet setting as the entrance is a no-through road which only allows access to these particular houses. This flat is packed full of character with fantastic dimensions throughout and over 1000 square feet of internal living space. The current owners have really made the most of the large rooms and the airy atmosphere in the property. The separate reception room at the front of the building is a stunning room with high ceilings, wooden flooring, shutters, a period fire place and bespoke shelving. A lovely room with views out of the bay window over the enclosed, well-maintained, front gardens. The two double bedrooms are separated and like the reception room, they are both a great size. There are three separate entrances into the secluded private rear garden from the kitchen and both double bedrooms. The bright kitchen has all you need in terms of mod-cons with space for a dining table and the double doors allow the living space to flow seamlessly into the un-extended side return and through to the garden. The bathroom is tastefully finished and there is a cellar which provides a perfect space to store all those items that are not used on a daily basis. All in all, there are not many Victorian garden flats on the market of this size with a private garden and in such a desirable location. Raleigh Gardens is highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to Brockwell Park, Brixton (ten minute walk) and Herne Hill beyond (fifteen minute walk). The property benefits from all that Brixton offers, from the celebrated cuisine within Brixton Village to the music venues and nightlife the area is famous for and first stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station.

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.
