Property details

A stunning example of a two double bedroom loft-style apartment within this fought over Victorian school conversion, boasting over 1300 square feet of living space. This characterful split level flat has impressive floor to ceiling windows, typical of school conversions, allowing natural light to flood the entire space. The vast open-plan reception room has a bright and airy atmosphere, complete with a stylish country-style kitchen and plenty of space for both dining, entertaining and relaxing. Ample storage is cleverly hidden away, with enough space for even the most serious of hoarders. Stairs up lead to a second reception room, ideal for use as an extra entertaining space, an office or a lovely dressing room, with a second shower room adjacent. Up some further stairs are the two double bedrooms, quietly tucked away at the top of the building. A fire escape onto a flat roof completes the property. The property lends itself to a variety of purchasers and lifestyles, and being split over different levels, has a great sense of space. Purchasers will be hard-pressed to find comparable properties with dimensions that rival this flat, and the total internal floor space will be similar to period houses within the immediate vicinity with higher asking prices. This property also benefits from an off-street parking space, manicured grounds, and the security that this popular gated development provides. The property is only a short walk from the amenities on offer within Brixton (14 minute stroll), Clapham High Street (10 minute stroll) and Abbeville Village (5 minute stroll). Excellent connections to the City and the West End through Clapham Common, Clapham North and Brixton underground stations and Clapham High Street mainline station are all within reach. Clapham Common and Brockwell Park are also close-by.
