Property details

A handsome example of a five double bedroom Victorian terraced house, located on one of Brixton’s sought-after residential streets, Fairmount Road. This lovely home has been lovingly cared for with enormous sensitivity to the period character of the property. Situated on Fairmount Road, an attractive, quiet road just off Brixton Hill, the property is only a short walk away from two of Brixton’s most popular primary schools, the local amenities of vibrant Brixton Hill, the ever popular Brockwell Park and the fantastic variety of nightlife on offer in central Brixton. With access to the Victoria line at Brixton tube station also within a ten-minute stroll, the location cannot be overstated. The property is a light and airy mix of contemporary design and characterful features. With nearly 2000 square feet of living space on offer, five large bedrooms and a secluded garden to match, it is hard to remind yourself that you are, indeed, in the heart of Brixton. The ground floor comprises a wide hallway complete with beautiful Victorian tiling and access to a spacious cellar, a large dual-aspect reception room packed full of character, including a lovely bay window, a wood burner, high ceilings and exquisite cornicing. Double doors boast views over the un-extended side return. The eat-in kitchen provides a perfect family hub and includes a bay window, a fantastic breakfast bar and exposed brickwork adding further to the sense of character. Subject to the necessary permissions, there is the opportunity to increase the footprint by extending into the side-return. Doors open onto the quiet and serene private garden, perfect for relaxing and entertaining during the spring and summer months. On the first floor are three of the five bedrooms, all of which are extremely comfortable doubles. The master bedroom runs the entire width of the front of the house with convenient built-in storage. There is a large, modern family bathroom which serves the bedrooms on this floor, and stairs lead up to another double bedroom, an additional bathroom, and the loft conversion, which has been brilliantly executed to provide a fifth double bedroom, complete with skylights. This is a charming home that has a real mix of characterful features and contemporary design and, together with the unparalleled location, will appeal to a vast range of purchasers. Chain Free.
