Property details

A fantastic opportunity to extend and completely refurbish this bright six bedroom Victorian terraced house on Horsford Road, ideally located off Brixton Hill.

This Victorian house is in need of complete modernisation, providing the perfect chance for a purchaser to use their own inspiration and resulting in with a home that completely reflects their personal taste. This is a rare opportunity and the property is larger than the majority of Victorian terraced houses in the area, boasting almost 2000 square feet of living space, and could also be further extended subject to the usual necessary permissions.

The ground floor comprises a large double-aspect reception/dining room to the front packed full of characterful features, and an eat-in kitchen with access onto the un-extended side return and mature South-West facing garden. There is also a large family bathroom to the rear, and a cellar, offering excellent storage options. On the first floor, the spacious master bedroom runs the entire width of the house and benefits from a lovely bay window, allowing natural light to flood the room. Two further generous double bedrooms are tucked away at the rear of the property along with a separate W.C, and upstairs on the second floor are two more bedrooms of a similar size to those below. The sixth bedroom is currently set up as a kitchenette with a family bathroom adjacent. The property has a substantial loft space that could be converted to increase the internal square footage, like numerous neighbours on the road have already benefitted from, subject to planning permission. The house is packed full of character, a rare find, and a fantastic opportunity for purchasers who are looking to completely refurbish a six bedroom Victorian house in a perfect location.

Horsford Road is situated an eight-minute stroll to central Brixton, and a five-minute stroll to the green open spaces of Brockwell Park. A fourteen-minute walk across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes and restaurants of leafy Herne Hill. Both Sudbourne School and Corpus Christi  primary schools are also within a few minutes’ walk.Purchasers will have the amenities on Brixton Hill within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub. The location is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action, yet retain a sense of calm. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is a short stroll down the hill and multiple buses run up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes and onwards into central London.

Early viewings recommended.
