Property details

We at Keating Estates are delighted to present this elegant, characterful and bright Victorian terraced five double bedroom house to market. This property has been lovingly cared for and recently refurbished by its present owner with enormous sensitivity to the period character of the property. Situated in Leander Road (a sought after, quiet road in the heart of the Josephine Avenue conservation area) the property is only a short walk away from local shops, Brockwell Park and the enormous variety of nightlife on offer in central Brixton,  Also, with three overground stations on different lines within easy reach, as well as the tube, its location cannot be overstated. The building says quality from top to bottom, with fantastic dimensions, boasting over 2000 sq ft of internal living space. As you enter the property on the ground floor, you look down a spacious hallway with original tiled flooring and access to a cellar with plenty of storage. Adjacent to the hallway is a conveniently located W.C, and a large double aspect reception room with stripped wooden flooring, a high celing, original features and doors that open from the dining room onto the fully extended kitchen. The large modern eat-in kitchen diner is finished to an excellent standard throughout with bi-fold doors opening onto a lovely secluded and quiet private west facing garden. On the upper floors sit five double bedrooms and two modern bathrooms. Leander Road is a residential, terraced street popular for its close proximity to both Brixton (twelve minute walk) and Herne Hill (fifteen minute walk) town centres. As locations go, it is fantastic. A short walk to Brixton town centre, Brockwell Park (lauded as London's best outdoor space by locals with its amazing lido among its myriad attractions) on your door step and a large Sainsbury’s within a couple of minutes walk. Early viewings are recommended. 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.
