Property details

A beautiful example of a five double bedroom Victorian terraced house, located on one of Brixton’s coveted residential streets, Fairmount Road.

This characterful home has been lovingly refurbished over many years by the current owner, resulting in a family home with an appealing blend of contemporary design and period features. With nearly 2000 square feet of living space on offer, five large bedrooms and a secluded garden to match, it is hard to remind yourself that you are, indeed, in the heart of Brixton, with easy access in and out of Central London.

Situated on Fairmount Road, an attractive residential road just off Brixton Hill, this popular street benefits from a quiet setting as the road wraps around onto Beechdale Road, which results in no through traffic, only allowing access to these particular houses on these two desirable roads. The property is only a short walk away from some of Brixton’s most popular primary schools, the local amenities of vibrant Brixton Hill, the ever popular Brockwell Park and the fantastic variety of nightlife on offer in central Brixton. With access to the Victoria line at Brixton tube station also within a ten-minute stroll and Herne Hill a pleasant fifteen-minute walk through the park, the location cannot be overstated.

The ground floor comprises a wide hallway complete with beautiful Victorian tiling and access to a spacious cellar, a large double-aspect reception room packed full of character, including a lovely bay window, two feature fireplaces, high ceilings and exquisite cornicing. Double doors open into the un-extended side return and through to the garden. The eat-in kitchen diner tucked away at the back of the building is the perfect family hub and the bay window provides an ideal area for a dining table. Subject to the necessary permissions, there is the opportunity to increase the footprint by extending into the side-return. Doors open onto the quiet and serene private garden, a lovely space for entertaining during the spring and summer months.

On the first floor are three of the five bedrooms, all of which are spacious doubles. The master bedroom runs the entire width of the front of the house with a bay window and views of the attractive neighbouring terrace row. There is a contemporary family bathroom which serves the bedrooms on this floor, and stairs lead up to another double bedroom and the converted loft, which has been brilliantly executed to provide a fifth double bedroom complete with skylights and an en-suite bathroom.
