Property details

A handsome four bedroom Victorian terraced house located equidistant to Clapham, Stockwell and Brixton. This charming period home makes the most of the 1600 square feet of internal space on offer, and has been lovingly cared for by the current owners, retaining many characterful features throughout. The property is full of bright spaces with an attractive open plan kitchen diner at the front of the house, complete with a wood burning stove that provides a cosy feel. This is a fantastic space and is sure to be used regularly as a spacious family hub. Double doors lead to a practical utility area and there is also access to a cellar, ideal for hiding all the clutter that accumulates over time, plus the additional benefit of a handy downstairs shower room and WC. To the rear is a lovely separate reception room which opens up onto an elegant, low-maintenance patio garden. The four bedrooms are all spacious and bright, and there is a second bathroom which is well-appointed. The house is a splendid mix of period features coupled with contemporary design. The property remains un-extended into loft and so holds great potential for extension, subject to the necessary permissions. The property is a short walk from both Stockwell and Clapham North underground stations, providing super-fast access to central London via the Victoria and Northern Lines. Clapham High Street overground station is also nearby. Clapham is within easy walking distance, with the coffee shops, restaurants, bars and cinema of the Old Town and the green open spaces of Clapham Common all close by. Brixton is a ten minute walk with all it has to offer; excellent night life and music venues to its lauded independent Ritzy cinema, to the culinary Mecca of Brixton Village and POP Brixton, and all the bars and restaurants on Atlantic Road. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, size, storage and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer.

Clapham area highlights

There’s something for everyone in Clapham and it draws an eclectic crowd. Clapham Common sits at its centre and is always buzzing with activity. There’s a diverse mix of restaurants, shops, independent boutiques and nightlife, along with some wonderful architecture. It rarely feels overcrowded here, despite the abundance of things to do, and Clapham endures as one of the most desirable places to live in south London. The local schools are excellent and the transport options second to none, with three London Underground (Northern Line) stations in close proximity and frequent London Overground trains from Clapham High Street station.
