Property details

A fantastic example of a two double bedroom Victorian split-level flat, this property on Helix Road will tick boxes for a wide range of purchasers. The property is situated in the heart of the ever-popular Josephine Avenue Conservation area, a quiet and leafy network of similarly attractive, Victorian terraced roads. The centre of Brixton, South London's new culinary mecca, is a ten-minute walk, with all it has to offer in terms of restaurants, nightlife and transport links, whilst two of Brixton’s most sought-after primary schools are also within a short stroll. Herne Hill is a fifteen-minute walk, with its village charm and eclectic array of shops and pubs, as well as what many local residents regard as London's best open space, Brockwell Park and its 1930’s Lido. With Brixton Village, Brockwell Park, and Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all purchasers.

With over 1100 square feet of internal living space, the property offers generous proportions throughout, which is exceptionally rare to find. This sociable property has an entrance on the ground floor with stairs that lead to the first floor landing. The first floor consists of a fantastic eat-in kitchen diner with all you need in terms of mod cons and a window through to the characterful separate reception room that spans the width of the building. Ample room to relax, the feature fireplace, square bay window and high ceilings, all contribute to confirm this room will be used on a regular basis. A modern bathroom with separate WC and a spacious double bedroom with views over the neighbouring gardens at the rear complete the rooms on this floor.

Stairs lead to a half landing and a stunning private South-East facing roof terrace, which offers a wonderfully secluded outdoor entertaining area and backs onto neighbouring gardens, without another roof terrace in sight. Last but not least, at the top of the building there is a second large double bedroom with room for a seating area and separate study area. The staircases meandering up through the property, a large square footage and your own outside space make this charming split level apartment feel like a home.

In short, a great opportunity with fantastic dimensions on a sought-after street, close to the action but far enough away to retain a real sense of calm. Not many split level properties in this popular residential pocket of roads have over 1000 square feet of internal living space and it is one of the few properties, that we are aware of, to have an official terrace in Helix and the adjacent roads. This chain-free property is a wonderful blend of characterful features which include; wooden flooring, high ceilings, feature fireplaces and coving. Early registration of interest is advised.
