Property details

This amazing property is a unique maisonette, a stunning example of what can be done when one of these majestic townhouses is converted with care and attention to detail. Set within the Josephine Avenue conservation area, behind long, secret gardens, with nearly 1300 square feet of internal floor space, this spacious three double bedroom period maisonette is situated in Helix Gardens which is one of the nicest streets in the whole of Brixton. This property is packed full of character with fantastic dimensions and really makes the most of its large rooms. Split over four levels and with the large landing areas you will enjoy a light and airy feel throughout. The double aspect reception and eat-in kitchen is a great size with high ceilings, wooden floor boards, two period fire places, bespoke shelving and a Juliet balcony. A fantastic room which runs the length of the building with views out of the square bay window over the enclosed, beautifully maintained, private front garden. The lush garden is secure and has been cared for by the current owners. The decked seating area, a brilliant lighting system which looks stunning in the evening, access to electricity and running water, a turfed rear section and the beautiful flower beds, all contribute to confirm that this lovely space will be used on a regular basis, day or night. The three double bedrooms are on separate floors and like the reception room, they have great dimensions. The kitchen has all you need in terms of mod-cons and both of the bathrooms are tastefully finished. There is a separate WC next to the lower bedroom. All in all, there are not many split-level properties on the market of this size, with a gated secure exterior, a beautiful private garden and in such a desirable location. A fantastic opportunity for a purchaser; the total internal floor space is similar to period houses with considerably higher asking prices in the immediate vicinity. Helix Gardens is part of the Josephine Avenue conservation area; a pocket of roads which are highly sought after for their character, feel and proximity to Brockwell Park, Brixton and Herne Hill beyond. This maisonette is perfectly situated with a supermarket at either end of the road and the pubs, bars and restaurants of Brixton Hill and Effra Road are a five 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 all within a ten minute walk. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, secluded feel, size, outside space, storage and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer - we really like it.
