Property details

This Victorian house is in need of complete modernisation, providing the opportunity for someone to use their inspiration and finish with a home that completely reflects their own personal taste. The house is situated on a very pretty, quiet, residential street located just off Brixton Hill. At the front of the building, there is a double aspect reception and dining room with direct access into the un-developed side return and characterful features that include wooden floorboards, high ceilings and a bay window. The eat-in kitchen is tucked away with a bathroom at the rear. The mature private garden has convenient side access and is perfect for any green-fingered purchasers who are looking to take on a garden project. On the first floor, there is a master bedroom that runs across the front of the property, two further large doubles and a separate WC. Stairs then lead to the fourth double bedroom and a family bathroom. The property has substantial loft space that could be utilised to increase the internal square footage, like numerous neighbours within the road, have already benefitted from, subject to the necessary permissions. The house is packed full of character, a rare find, and a fantastic opportunity for purchasers who are looking to completely refurbish a four bedroom Victorian house in a popular location. Fairmount Road is highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to Brixton town centre, Brockwell Park and Herne Hill beyond. The coffee shops, bars and restaurants on Brixton Hill are a short stroll and within a ten-minute walk down the hill, you will have everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the lauded Brixton Village to large brand-shops and cracking transport links. Multiple buses run up and down Brixton Hill to central Brixton in a few minutes and then through to central London and beyond. 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.
