Property details

We are pleased to bring to market this one/two double bedroom Victorian conversion garden flat, situated in the extremely popular residential pocket of Holmewood Gardens, a short stroll from Brixton Hill. Holmewood Gardens is a quiet residential street which surrounds a pretty garden square and is within a fifteen to seventeen-minute walk to Brixton town centre, or a few minutes if you were to jump on one of the many buses that flow down Brixton Hill.

The property is beautifully presented with a mix of characterful features and contemporary finish. To the front is a separate reception room boasting high ceilings, wooden floorboards, bespoke shelving with LED under lighting and a bay window with shutters. Adjacent to the living room is a modern bathroom with a warm inviting feel. The double bedroom is well-proportioned with double doors that lead directly out into the side-return and through to the garden. Tucked away at the back of the building is a fantastic kitchen-diner with all you need in terms of mods cons and ample room for a large dining table. This spacious room offers a brilliant entertaining area with views over the private secluded garden at the rear. The flat has the added benefit of recently replaced wooden double-glazed windows and doors, convenient side-access into the garden and a cellar which has been converted into a utility room offering additional storage solutions, which can often be difficult to find in these Victorian conversions.

The apartment is currently configured as a fantastic one double bedroom garden flat with nearly 750 square feet of internal living space but one of the main selling points is the flexibility the property offers as the layout could be altered depending on the new purchasers search requirements. The property could be configured as a two bedroom garden flat with the living room at the front of the building acting as a second double bedroom and an open-plan reception at the back of the building.

The area is highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to Brixton, Streatham Hill and Clapham. Streatham Hill station is a twelve-minute walk with direct trains into Clapham Junction, Victoria and London Bridge. Within an eighteen minute walk, you reach the centre of Brixton and Clapham Common is twenty-one minutes away.

On one hand you have everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the culinary delights of Brixton Village to large brand-shops and cracking transport links, first stop on the Victoria Line. Multiple buses run up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes and fortunately, this flat is a stone's throw from a local bus stop with buses coming and going every other minute. On the other hand, you have Clapham High Street and its multitude of restaurants and bars. There are excellent transport links with two Northern Line underground stations, Clapham High Street Station on the Overground and numerous bus routes to other areas of London. Brockwell Park and Clapham Common are both within walking distance and having the South Circular on your doorstep is perfect for anyone with a vehicle.
