Property details

A superb example of a two double bedroom, Victorian split-level flat, this property on Helix Road will tick boxes for a wide range of purchasers. The property is situated in the heart of the ever-popular Josephine Avenue Conservation area, a quiet and leafy network of similarly attractive, Victorian terraced roads. The heart of thriving and vibrant Brixton is just a ten-minute walk, with all it has to offer in terms of restaurants, nightlife and transport links, whilst two of Brixton’s most sought-after primary schools are also within a short stroll. Herne Hill is a fifteen-minute walk, with its leafy, village charm and eclectic array of shops and pubs, as well as what local residents regard as London's best open space, Brockwell Park and its famed Lido. With Brixton Village, Brockwell Park, and Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all tastes.

With over 1000 square feet of internal living space, the property offers generous proportions throughout, plus a private garden – a rare find. This sociable property is split over the ground and first floor of a handsome terraced house. There is a beautifully presented reception room to the front, packed full of characterful features such as a feature fireplace, bay window and high ceilings. The space has been opened up and leads through to a fantastic eat-in kitchen diner with all you need in terms of mod cons and plenty of space for a large dining table. Ample room to relax, the feature fireplace, square bay window and high ceilings, all contribute to confirm these two rooms will be used on a regular basis, providing the perfect family hub. Charming double doors provide access into the peaceful and well-maintained private garden which benefits from a lovely summerhouse, ideal for relaxing or hosting parties and BBQs during the warmer months. Down the hallway, the master bedroom is tucked away to the rear – a generous double room, boasting extensive built-in storage and an additional dressing area, flooded with natural light thanks to a large skylight. There is secondary access onto the private garden from here. Upstairs is a further double bedroom plus the modern family bathroom, complete with a handy utility area. The staircases meandering up through the property, a large square footage and your own outside space make this delightful split level garden flat feel like a home. The property also benefits from a convenient cellar, perfect for hiding away all the clutter purchasers may accumulate over time.

In short, a great opportunity with fantastic dimensions on a sought-after street, close to the action but far enough away to retain a sense of calm.
