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

The lovely decked terrace is the perfect spot for relaxing in throughout the summer months.
Upstairs on the first floor, sit the four bedrooms: the master bedroom at the front of the property is an airy double room, offering views over the attractive neighbouring terraces. Two further double bedrooms are tucked away to the rear, plus a fourth single room, ideal for use as a study, nursery or dressing room. A contemporary family bathroom completes the rooms on the first floor. The property has the additional benefit of a large loft which could be converted into a further bedroom as neighbouring houses on the road have done. The property could also be extended into the side return, increasing the total square footage, subject to the necessary permissions.
