Property details

A majestic five double bedroom period townhouse, located on a quiet and sleepy street between the amenities in Brixton and Clapham. Winterwell Road is nestled in a popular residential pocket of pretty Victorian terraces, equidistant to both sought-after locations, and will appeal to purchasers who are contemplating moving to the two areas.

This highly desirable road has a hidden secret; stunning 70 foot private gardens that are larger than average for the Brixton area. This particular home is on the South facing side of the road and this wonderful selling point allows the house to stand out from similar sized houses in the area with smaller gardens. The property has been lovingly cared for by the current owners and is a light and airy mix of contemporary design and characterful features which include; period fireplaces, coving and Victorian tiling in the hallways. With acres of room, over 2000 square feet of internal space, five double bedrooms and a secluded larger than average garden to match, it is hard to remind yourself that you are indeed still in the heart of Brixton, located in this coveted residential pocket of roads.

The property boasts a grand dual-aspect reception room, packed full of characterful features including wooden flooring, high ceilings, beautiful cornicing, exposed brick and a feature fireplace. The room is flooded with natural light from both directions thanks to a wide bay window at the front and large double doors to the rear, the latter providing access to decking and large garden. The living space continues through the hallway and into a spacious dining room and contemporary kitchen: the space is versatile and, subject to the necessary permissions, could be altered or extended to suit the purchaser’s needs, creating the perfect family hub in the form of a superb eat-in kitchen diner. This handsome family home has multiple selling points, but the icing on the cake has to be the exceptional 66 foot rear garden – this is a rare find and purchasers will be hard pushed to find a property with as large a garden in the area. This secluded and peaceful outdoor space provides a fantastic space for entertaining and relaxing throughout the warmer months.

Upstairs on the first floor are three of the five double bedrooms, all of which are generous doubles and the master benefitting from a lovely bay window, and sharing the sleek and modern family bathroom. The grand staircase meanders up to the second floor where a further two double bedrooms sit, plus access to the loft, providing additional storage options should purchasers require further space than the large cellar downstairs.

A short walk from the heart of Brixton, a ten-minute stroll from The Ritzy, Windrush Square, Brixton Village and POP Brixton, this property is perfect for anyone who wants to be tucked away quietly on an attractive residential street but remain close to all the action these popular areas have to offer. The popular Sudbourne and Corpus Christi primary schools are within close proximity.

In the other direction, purchasers will benefit from everything that Clapham has to offer within a twelve-minute stroll, the multitude of restaurants and bars and excellent transport links with two Northern Line underground stations; Clapham Common and Clapham North tube stations. Brockwell Park and the iconic 1930’s Lido are a similar distance and a seventeen-minute walk through the park brings you to Herne Hill Overground station and the many pubs and cafes of leafy Herne Hill.

The total square footage is large and allows potential purchasers to alter the layout to best suit their own lifestyle. A unique property with various characteristics that allow the property to stand out from all the other houses which are currently on the market.
