Property details

This is a spacious and delightfully arranged one double bedroom flat occupying the top floor of one of the sought after Victorian detached houses on Trent Road.One of the key selling points to this property is the fantastic loft-style open plan living kitchen area which is flooded by natural light through multiple skylights and the double doors, which lead onto a stunning private roof terrace with views, as far as the eye can see, out across the London Skyline. The contemporary kitchen has all you need in terms of appliances and a convenient utility area. The property has built-in storage cupboards throughout and even the most experienced hoarders will have room to pack away their extensive belongings.Sitting adjacent to the reception room is a comfortable double bedroom which also benefits from an airy atmosphere due to the window and another skylight. The bedroom has fantastic views out towards the City of London. Natural light is a running theme through this secure top floor flat and the modern bathroom is no exception.Trent Road is an attractive Victorian residential street nestled in a popular, quiet pocket, highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to Brockwell Park, Brixton town centre and Herne Hill beyond. Situated a nine minute stroll to the culinary mecca of South London, Brixton, purchasers also have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub.This characterful top floor flat is ideal for anyone who wants to be close to the action while maintaining a sense of calm. The new owner will have the best of both worlds with everything on offer in the hustle and bustle of central Brixton but able to retire to the quieter village-like community that has been developed around Brixton Hill. First stop on the Victoria Line, Brixton tube station is a short stroll, whisking you into central London and the City within a few minutes. The buses offer a great alternative to the tube and train stations for commuters into the city centre.The location is ideal with a supermarket and one of the best primary schools in Brixton, Corpus Christi, highly rated by Ofsted, at the end of the road. Sudbourne School is also a five minute stroll and it is a similar distance to the green, open spaces of Brockwell Park. A pleasant fifteen minute walk across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes, restaurants and Sunday market of leafy Herne Hill. The village feel continues with easy access to Dulwich Village, East Dulwich and Peckham.The property has a generous square footage with over 500 square feet of internal living space, which is comparable to some of the two double bedroom middle floor flats in the area. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style and size of the flat, to the quiet neighbourhood feel and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer – a real gem of a flat. Early registration of interest is strongly advised.
