Property details

A characterful five bedroom Edwardian house with an attractive exterior on Doverfield Road. This property has been lovingly extended and cared for by its current owners and boasts 1600 square feet of internal living space, making it a cut above the other period houses on offer within the area in terms of space and features. Doverfield Road is a quiet and peaceful residential street, located just off vibrant and trendy Brixton Hill, a seventeen-minute walk or a couple of minutes travel on one of the multiple buses running up and down the hill to the centre of Brixton.

The ground floor is fantastic for entertaining with a bright double aspect reception and dining room running the length of the building and a modern kitchen. A perfect family hub for dining and relaxing, with direct access from the two rooms into the garden. The living space flows seamlessly into an outdoor area which is a perfect space to enjoy the warmer months.

Upstairs on the first floor, sit four of the five bedrooms: the master bedroom has a bay window and ample built-in storage, the room adjacent is also a fantastic size and they all share a family bathroom. Up a further flight of stairs is the well-configured loft conversion giving a 'penthouse suite' at 23 square metres which flows from the front to back and receives sun all day. This provides a further generous double bedroom complete with skylights and a superb Juliet balcony, offering views over the neighbouring gardens and across the London skyline. The spacious bathroom on this floor is beautifully finished with a walk-in shower.

The property will appeal to a wide range of potential purchasers, who will benefit from all that Brixton offers, from the celebrated cuisine of Brixton Village to the music venues and nightlife the area is famous for. There are local amenities within a two-minute walk and there are a selection of pubs, bars, restaurants and supermarkets on Brixton Hill and Effra Road. It is also a five-minute walk to Brockwell Park, claimed by some as the finest park in London. Brixton tube station is a fifteen-minute stroll and there is a bus stop within a stone’s throw, with numerous buses that run all day and night, taking no more than a couple of minutes down Brixton Hill.

Clapham High Street and Abbeville Village are also a similar distance, offering excellent transport links with three Northern Line underground stations, Clapham High Street station on the Overground and numerous bus routes to other areas of London. Venn Street and its multitude of restaurants and bars, the green open spaces of Clapham Common are all within walking distance. Abbeville Village boasts the quaint, boutique shops, cafes and restaurants the area is famous for. All in all, a fantastic home within walking distance to the amenities in Brixton, Balham, Streatham Hill and Clapham, appealing to purchasers contemplating all four locations. Having the South Circular a couple of minutes away is perfect for anyone with a car.
