Property details

We are delighted to offer to market this characterful three double bedroom Victorian house located in a popular residential area. Shakespeare Road is an attractive terraced street, located between Herne Hill (five minute walk), Brixton (ten minute walk) and Loughborough Junction (eleven minute walk). With Brockwell Park, Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants and Brixton Village all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all potential purchasers; the property will appeal to those contemplating moving to both Brixton and Herne Hill, as it is only a stone's throw from both Brixton and Herne Hill town centres but far enough away to retain a sleepy, neighbourhood feel. Brockwell Park (lauded as London's best outdoor space by locals with its famous lido built in 1937) is literally at the end of the road and a large Sainsbury’s and Tesco’s are a short stroll away.

Situated at the front of the building is a separate reception room with wooden floor boards, high ceilings and flooded with natural light through the bay window. The room adjacent is flexible and depending on the new purchasers search requirements, it has multiple different potential uses that include; a dining room, home office or another bedroom.

To the rear of the property is a spacious eat-in kitchen diner and utility room with views into the un-extended side-return, and direct access onto the private garden which stretches 75 feet in length. Upstairs is the light and spacious master bedroom running across the front of the building, another comfortable double bedroom, a spacious family bathroom and separate WC.

This property is packed full of features and ideal for anyone looking to move into a new property and stamp their own mark over time. All in all a fantastic home in a friendly street, crying out for someone to benefit from all that Brixton, Herne Hill and Loughborough Junction have to offer. Chain Free.
