Brixton is a melting pot of culture, cuisine and creativity. An explosion of inventive, new restaurants, pop-ups, fashion stores and art galleries sit alongside the many great pubs, music venues and nightclubs that have been around for years. Transport links are excellent, with London Underground (Victoria Line) trains reaching central London in 12 minutes. If you’re craving green space, Brockwell Park and its famed Art Deco lido are close by. Brixton brings together all the best things about London and is one of the most vibrant and diverse places to live south of the river.Brixton area guide

We are pleased to bring to market this handsome Victorian four bedroom house, set back quietly from Brixton Hill behind a long sweeping front garden which is 55 feet in length. Central Brixton is a fifteen to seventeen minute stroll down Brixton Hill, or a short bus ride on one of the many buses that service the area.
The property has been lovingly cared for by the current owners and is a light and airy mix of contemporary design and characterful Victorian features, which include: period fireplaces, coving and original tiling in the hallways. With acres of room, four bedrooms and located within close proximity to central London, this lovely family home will appeal to a wide range of purchasers. The property has a characterful dual-aspect reception room at the front of the house, complete with high ceilings, immaculate wooden flooring, a feature fireplace and period cornicing. Double doors look onto an un-extended rear side return. Down the attractively tiled hallway is a charming country-style kitchen diner, boasting all you need in terms of mod cons and storage, and providing an ideal family hub, opening out onto a low maintenance, West facing decked garden.
On the two upper floors sit four double bedrooms, a study and the family bathroom. The master bedroom is a fantastic size, running the width of the property with a bay window that allows natural light to flood into the room, and benefits from some fantastic built-in storage. The further bedrooms are all well-sized doubles, whilst the nursery/study could be easily converted into a second bathroom if needed, and also provides access into the unconverted loft. The total square footage of the house is large and allows potential purchasers to alter the layout to best suit their own lifestyle.
The area is highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to Brixton, Streatham Hill and Clapham. Streatham Hill station is a twelve minute walk with direct trains into Clapham Junction, Victoria and London Bridge. Within an eighteen minute walk you reach the centre of Brixton and Clapham Common is twenty one minutes away. On one hand you have everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the culinary delights of Brixton Village, to large brand-shops and cracking transport links, first stop on the Victoria Line. Multiple buses run up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes and fortunately this house is a stone's throw from a local bus stop with buses coming and going frequently. On the other hand you have Clapham High Street and its multitude of restaurants and bars. There are excellent transport links with two Northern Line underground stations, Clapham High Street Station on the Overground and numerous bus routes to other areas of London. Brockwell Park and Clapham Common are both within walking distance and having the South Circular on your doorstep is perfect for anyone with a vehicle.
