Property details

A wonderfully bright and airy two/three bedroom, split level, Victorian conversion flat nestled just off Brixton Hill on a quiet residential street. With over 950 square feet of internal living space, the property is a rare find. The apartment is split over various levels which amplifies the feeling of space. The substantial separate reception room spans the entire width of the building and is flooded with natural light through the large bay window, whilst high ceilings add to the airy atmosphere, and a feature fireplace, bespoke shelving and cornicing all add character. This room is sure to be used on a regular basis, with ample space to relax and entertain. The dual aspect kitchen-diner is situated at the back of the building with views over the neighbouring gardens at the rear.

The property has three bedrooms, two comfortable double bedrooms and a smaller third bedroom which acts perfectly as a nursery/child’s bedroom, a home office or could be turned into a second bathroom/en-suite bathroom. The modern family bathroom completes the rooms within the property. The layout is versatile and can be altered depending on the purchaser’s needs and there is the potential to utilise the substantial un-demised loft space, subject to the necessary permissions. This aesthetically pleasing road is highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to Brockwell Park, Brixton town centre and Herne Hill beyond. At the end of the road, you have the picturesque garden square of Holmewood Gardens with a children’s play area and the property is also a five-minute walk from what many local residents champion as London's best open space, Brockwell Park. Streatham Hill station, which has links to Clapham Junction and London Victoria, is a twelve-minute walk and Herne Hill station is a sixteen-minute walk across Brockwell Park. The property is also an eighteen-minute walk down the hill to Brixton tube station and the culinary wonders of Brixton Village. Tulse Hill station with rail links which include London Bridge is fourteen minutes away. Situated between Brixton Hill and Tulse Hill, this property has access to the extensive bus network on Brixton Hill which is just a few minutes’ walk with multiple buses flowing down the hill and into London’s central district (133, 159, 59, 333 etc.). Tulse Hill buses include 2, 432 and 415. Early viewings are recommended.
