Property details

A charming example of a five bedroom Victorian terraced house, this beautiful family home is packed full of characterful features and boasts an impressive 200 square metres of living space, giving the property more spacious proportions than the majority of other Victorian houses in the area. 

Situated on Leander Road, a popular, attractive terraced street close to both Brixton and Herne Hill, the property is only a short walk away from local shops, the green open spaces of Brockwell Park and its 1930s Lido, plus walking distance to two of Brixton’s most sought-after primary schools. With three Overground stations on different lines within easy reach, as well as the Tube, its location cannot be overstated.

The ground floor comprises a handsome double-aspect reception and dining room, with an abundance of original period features, such as a large bay window, high ceilings, beautiful cornicing and feature fireplaces. This is a superb space that is sure to be used on a regular basis. A bright hallway, complete with original period tiling and cornicing and access to a spacious cellar, leads through to a stylish eat-in kitchen diner: the country-cottage style units provide plenty of storage and worktop space, with the addition of a kitchen island and built-in appliances, whilst a bay window adds further character, all together creating an elegant family hub. French doors open onto a pretty South-East facing garden: this leafy, serene space feels peaceful and secluded, and is perfect for enjoying some downtime, whenever the weather permits. There is even the option to attach a hammock to really get the most out of those lazy summer afternoons. 

The first floor has two comfortable double bedrooms, both a fantastic size, plus a smaller double, currently used as a study/guest room, and a spacious family bathroom. The large master bedroom spans the width of the house and benefits from a large bay window, whilst an original fireplace adds even more character, as in three of the four other bedrooms. Stairs lead to another bathroom and two further double bedrooms, both generous in size, with the largest benefiting from a modern en-suite bathroom.  This is a well-executed loft conversion that makes the most of the space on offer, with built-in storage in the eves and multiple skylights that allow natural light to flood the room.

The property has been lovingly cared for by the current owners in the last six years, with renovation work including re-wiring and plumbing throughout, refurbishment to the sash windows, a brand new roof, soundproofing between floors plus a stylish finish with the majority of rooms being painted in top of the range Farrow and Ball paint. 

The total square footage of the property is large and allows potential purchasers to alter the layout to best suit their own lifestyle. A characterful family home that will tick boxes for many purchasers: early registration of interest is advised.
