Brixton is a melting pot of culture, cuisine and creativity. An explosion of inventive, new restaurants, pop-ups, fashion stores and art galleries sit alongside the many great pubs, music venues and nightclubs that have been around for years. Transport links are excellent, with London Underground (Victoria Line) trains reaching central London in 12 minutes. If you’re craving green space, Brockwell Park and its famed Art Deco lido are close by. Brixton brings together all the best things about London and is one of the most vibrant and diverse places to live south of the river.Brixton area guide

A beautiful example of a four double bedroom Victorian terraced house, located on one of Brixton’s coveted residential streets, Arodene Road.
This characterful home has been finished to a high standard, resulting in a family home with an appealing blend of contemporary design and charming period features. With over 2000 square feet of living space on offer, four large bedrooms and a secluded garden to match, it is hard to remind yourself that you are, indeed, in the heart of Brixton, with easy access in and out of central London.
Situated on Arodene Road, an attractive residential road located within the Josephine Avenue Conservation Area, this popular street benefits from a quiet and sleepy setting. The property is only a short walk away from some of Brixton’s most popular primary schools, the local amenities of vibrant Brixton Hill, the ever-popular Brockwell Park and the fantastic variety of nightlife and eateries on offer in central Brixton. With access to the Victoria line at Brixton tube station within a ten-minute stroll and Herne Hill a pleasant fifteen-minute walk through the park, the location cannot be overstated.
The ground floor comprises a wide hallway complete with striking Victorian tiling and access to a spacious cellar, a large double-aspect reception room packed full of character, including a lovely bay window, a feature fireplace, high ceilings and exquisite cornicing. Double doors open into the un-extended side return and through to the garden. The eat-in kitchen diner tucked away at the back of the building, is the perfect family hub complete with a central island breakfast bar. Subject to the necessary permissions, there is the opportunity to increase the footprint by extending into the side-return. Doors open onto the pretty, serene private garden, a lovely space for entertaining or relaxing during the warmer months. The house has a cellar which offers a fantastic storage solution and the current vendors have used the space to create a utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer.
On the first floor are two of the four bedrooms, both of which are spacious doubles. The master bedroom runs the entire width of the front of the house with a bay window and views of the attractive neighbouring terrace row. There is a spacious, contemporary family bathroom which serves the bedrooms on this floor. Stairs lead up to another double bedroom and modern bathroom, and the converted loft, which has been brilliantly executed to provide a stunning master suite, complete with skylights and an ensuite bathroom.
This is a charming home that has a real mix of characterful features and contemporary design and, together with the unparalleled location, will appeal to a vast range of purchasers. Chain Free.
