Property details

We are pleased to present this stunning 750 square foot, loft-style apartment in this attractive Victorian conversion with a private roof terrace that has 360-degree panoramic views for miles across neighbouring rooftops.

This unique apartment has plenty of period features such as a central wrought iron spiral staircase, Victorian radiators and a working fireplace. The property underwent a significant refurbishment in 2016 by the current owners with no expense spared, adding high-quality contemporary features such as engineered wood flooring, state of the art Miele appliances in the bespoke Italian open plan kitchen and a luxury bathroom with underfloor heating. The fantastic vaulted ceilings and Velux windows flood the space with natural light. The property is versatile and the layout can be altered to suit a purchaser's specific search criteria. The two double bedrooms feed off the hallway and there is the added bonus of a mezzanine area above the living space, currently used as a guests sleeping area with double mattress, but offering a multitude of alternative potential uses.

You will be hard-pressed to find comparable properties, the apartment is beautifully finished and the amazing 7x6 metre roof terrace is magnificent. The spiral staircase leads conveniently from the living space and emerges into this sociable space with breath-taking views.

The apartment is set back from Herne Hill and accessed from the corner of the gorgeous Elfindale Road, a quiet tree-lined street of family houses. Just a 6 minute walk the hill takes you to the amenities of Herne Hill like Brockwell Park, the famous weekly farmers market and award-winning pubs and restaurants. Dulwich Village is also just a 15-minute walk away, so there is something to cater for all potential purchasers. Herne Hill is the ideal commuters location, and this apartment is just six minutes’ walk from Herne Hill station, with trains to London Victoria in just 9 minutes, Blackfriars in 12 minutes and City Thameslink in 14 minutes. North Dulwich station is eight minutes’ walk away, with trains to London Bridge in 15 minutes. Denmark Hill station is 15 minutes’ walk for the over ground to East London, and Brixton station is a 10-minute bus or 6 minute Uber for the Victoria line underground.

In short, a lovely flat in a lovely area, only a stone's throw from Herne Hill centre but far enough away to retain a sleepy, neighbourhood feel.

Early registration of interest is recommended. Share of freehold and potentially chain-free for the right offer.
