The first floor has four comfortable double bedrooms which are all a fantastic size and a bathroom with a separate WC. Stairs lead to another stunning bathroom with a roll top bath and walk-in shower. Last but not least there is access to the substantial loft space which allows the new owner to add value and increase the size of the property in the future. The total square footage is large and allows potential purchasers to alter the layout to best suit their own lifestyle. A characterful home with various characteristics that allow the property to stand out from the majority of houses currently on the market in this area. The property has supermarkets within reach and is a couple of minutes’ walk from what many local people claim as the best park in London, Brockwell Park. The pubs, bars and restaurants of Brixton Hill and Effra Road are a short stroll. The property benefits from all that Brixton offers, from the celebrated cuisine in Brixton Village to the music venues and nightlife the area is famous for and first stop on the Victoria Line in Brixton tube station, a ten minute walk away. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, size, outside space, storage and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer - we really like it.

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.
