Property details

An exceptional example of a five bedroom Victorian terraced house, located on a peaceful and sleepy terraced street, with easy access to Brixton, Streatham Hill, Clapham, Balham and Tulse Hill. 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 almost 2000 square feet of living space on offer, four large bedrooms and a secluded garden to match, the property is sure to tick boxes for a wide range of purchasers. Cotherstone Road is a quiet residential street situated in the extremely popular residential pocket of Holmewood Gardens. The attractive period terrace row surrounds a pretty garden square with a children’s playground and is a short walk from Brixton Hill where buses run every couple of minutes to Brixton centre.

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 working 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 breakfast bar and exposed brickwork. There is also a convenient utility room providing storage options. 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 garden, a lovely space for entertaining or relaxing during the warmer months.

On the first floor are two of the five 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, beautifully finished family bathroom which serves the bedrooms on this floor, boasting a luxurious roll top bath and separate walk-in shower. The second bedroom has the additional benefit of a modern en-suite bathroom, plus some built in storage. Stairs lead up to another double bedroom and the converted loft, which has been brilliantly executed to provide a stunning double room, complete with vellux skylights. A further smaller bedroom completes the rooms on the second floor, ideal for use as a child’s room, study or indeed as an additional bathroom to serve the two bedrooms on this floor.

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 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. On the other hand, you have Streatham High Street and its multitude of restaurants and bars. Brockwell Park, Tooting and Balham Common, and Clapham Common are both within walking distance and having the South Circular on your doorstep is perfect for anyone with a vehicle.
