The kitchen and dining room is a fantastic entertaining space; the focal piece is a large central skylight allowing light to flood into the room. The fittings and fixtures are of a high standard and there are two rooms and a luxury bathroom that lead from the dining area. These rooms have a multitude of different potential uses depending on the purchasers search requirements; a home office, double bedrooms, playrooms, utility room etc. The first floor has three further double bedrooms which are all a fantastic size and a contemporary bathroom.

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, secluded country feel, size, outside space, storage and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer - we really like it.

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.
