Property details

A two double bedroom Victorian flat occupying the ground floor of a pretty terraced house, with a South-West facing private garden. The property boasts fantastic dimensions with a total internal area of 865 square feet.

Entering the flat on the ground floor, you are met with the beautiful Victorian floor tiling throughout the spacious hallway, which leads to the master bedroom at the front of the property. This room is a generous size and features floor-to-ceiling built in wardrobes, plus additional storage in the charming window seat. The room is flooded with natural light through the bay window. The second bedroom, which has doors onto the private garden, is also a spacious double, and both bedrooms have an abundance of characterful features such as wooden flooring, lovely Victorian coving and high ceilings. The bathroom is modern and spacious, complete with a heated towel rail. The large open-plan reception and kitchen diner is tucked away at the rear of the property, with plenty of room for dining, relaxing and entertaining: this room will be used on a regular basis. The patio doors span the width of the tasteful, country-style kitchen and allow the living space to flow seamlessly onto the quiet and secluded South-West facing garden. This lovely decked garden is a perfect space to enjoy the summer months and feels worlds away: it is easy to forget you are indeed in central Brixton, two minutes from vibrant Brixton Hill.

Fairmount Road is situated a ten minute stroll to the new culinary and nightlife mecca of South London, Brixton, and a five minute stroll to the green, open spaces of Brockwell Park. A fifteen minute walk across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes and restaurants of leafy Herne Hill. Purchasers have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub. This characterful garden flat is ideal for anyone who wants to be close to the action but would prefer to maintain a sense of calm. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is a short stroll away as well as the multiple buses running up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes and on into central London. The buses offer a great alternative to the tube and train stations for commuters into the city centre. Fortunately this flat is a stone's throw from a local bus stop with buses coming and going every other minute. 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.
