Property details

An exceptional Victorian terraced house in Poets Corner. Shakespeare Road is a quaint, tree-lined Victorian road in this highly sought-after network of streets, between Herne Hill and Brixton.

This is a beautifully presented home, a light and airy mix of elegant design and characterful features. The ground floor comprises a generous entrance hall, leading into a bright and spacious, dual-aspect reception room at the front of the property. An attractive bay window seat, bespoke shelving and a delightful log burner all contribute to the characterful feel; this room is likely to be used on a regular basis. The space flows seamlessly through to the dining room, a fantastic space for entertaining guests or family get-togethers.

Down the hallway and into the bespoke kitchen diner to the rear – this is an ideal family hub, with its smart units and stylish tiling, complete with a trendy breakfast bar. The space has been extended, resulting in a wonderful family room with skylights and bi-folding doors that allow natural light to flood the entire room. The property also benefits from a convenient utility room off the kitchen, providing a handy area for storage and laundry, as well as a modern shower room. The bi-fold doors completely open up to allow an effortless transition onto the well-manicured rear garden. The lovely patio is the perfect spot for relaxing in throughout the summer months.

Upstairs on the first floor, sit the three bedrooms: the master bedroom at the front of the property is an airy double room, offering views over the attractive neighbouring terraces and benefitting from some excellent built-in storage. Two further bedrooms are tucked away quietly to the rear, and a contemporary family bathroom completes the rooms on the first floor. The property has the additional bonus of a loft, which could be converted into a further bedroom as neighbouring houses on the road have done, subject to the necessary permissions.

Shakespeare Road is situated in the heart of Poets’ Corner, a highly desirable residential pocket of roads between Herne Hill and Brixton. Herne Hill station is a six-minute walk and Brixton tube station is a ten-minute stroll. London Bridge is accessible in twenty-four minutes, Canary Wharf in thirty-seven minutes and Victoria within sixteen minutes, door to door. The celebrated Herne Hill establishments are close-by and the restaurants and shops within the lauded Brixton Village, the amenities of the high street and Brixton Station are a ten-minute stroll. The green, open spaces of Brockwell Park are also at the end of the road, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido.

With Brockwell Park, Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants and Brixton Village all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all potential purchasers. In short, a stylish home in a sought-after area, only a stone's throw from Herne Hill town centre but far enough away to retain a sleepy, neighbourhood feel.
