Property details

We are pleased to bring to market this four double bedroom Victorian house with development potential, set back quietly from Brixton Hill behind a long sweeping front garden which is 64 feet in length. Central Brixton is a fifteen to seventeen-minute stroll down Brixton Hill, or a short bus ride on one of the many buses that service the area.

The ground floor comprises a wide entrance hallway with a bright separate reception room which is complete with feature fireplace, high ceilings, and a bay window. Sitting adjacent to the reception room is a dining room with direct access through the un-extended side return and into the garden. These two rooms could be opened up to create a lovely double aspect reception and dining room. A spacious eat-in kitchen diner at the rear of the property allows the living space to flow seamlessly onto a South-East facing garden.

Subject to the necessary permissions, there is the opportunity to increase the footprint by extending at the rear and/or into the side-return and/or up into the loft. Planning permission has also been granted to split the house into two separate flats, a two-bedroom garden flat and a split-level three-bedroom flat (https://planning.lambeth.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?keyVal=POF2DSBOKGY00&activeTab=summary). This flexibility allows the house to appeal to wide range of purchasers. Owner-occupiers who intend to keep the house as a family home will have the previous planning as an additional selling point when they come to sell the house in the future.

On the first floor are three of the four double bedrooms, all of which are comfortable doubles, with the master bedroom spanning the entire width of the building. There is a family bathroom, a separate WC and stairs that lead to the forth bedroom and a second bathroom. The property is a blank canvas and has plenty of character throughout in the form of period fireplaces, high ceilings and multiple bay windows. An ideal investment for anyone looking to stamp their own mark on a property, resulting in with a home that completely reflects their own personal taste and requirements. The property also boasts some extensive storage in the form of a large cellar and access to substantial loft space.

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 a healthy 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 house is a stone's throw from a local bus stop with buses coming and going frequently. The bus routes passing include 159/133/333/118/109/250. 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.
