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

With over 2,000 square feet of internal space it has 4 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and substantial living and entertaining space. Located on a highly sought-after residential road, Blenheim Gardens is an attractive and peaceful street, perfectly located just off vibrant and trendy Brixton Hill, a ten-minute walk to the centre of Brixton.
The ground floor comprises a generous entrance hall leading into a bright and spacious reception room at the front of the property, complete with a beautiful bay window, wooden floorboards, and a charming feature fireplace.

To the rear is the pretty and secluded 50ft garden, complete with a patio, lawn, mature flower beds and separate rear access to Halliwell Road.
Upstairs on the first floor, sit three of the four double bedrooms: the bedroom at the front of the property is airy with a bay window, and benefits from an adjacent dressing room (which could have multiple uses, for example, study, nursery etc.) Two further bedrooms to the rear are also generous in size, all sharing a contemporary family bathroom plus a separate WC.
Up a further flight of stairs is the spectacular master bedroom, complete with its own bathroom, with large sash windows providing views over the handsome neighbouring gardens and beyond. There is storage space in the lofts at the front and rear of the property.
