Property details

A characterful one bedroom garden flat located on a popular residential street, in the heart of the Josephine Avenue conservation area. With nearly 700 square feet of internal living space and the potential to extend (STPP), this wonderful period conversion will appeal to a wide range of potential purchasers.

The property is accessed on the ground floor of an attractive end of terrace Victorian house. This charming flat is packed full of original features which include high ceilings, wooden floor boards, period coving and bay windows.

A spacious separate reception room is nestled at the front of the building, flooded with natural light though the bay and sitting adjacent is a comfortable double bedroom with views out through the un-extended side return and into the private garden at the rear. Down the hallway, a tastefully decorated bathroom is well-finished with striking tiling and a handy cellar provides space for all of the clutter purchasers will accumulate over time. Tucked away at the back of the building is a spacious eat-in kitchen diner which has everything any keen cooks may require in terms of mod cons and storage. A pretty bay window provides the perfect space for a large dining table, a fantastic opportunity for those who enjoy entertaining dinner guests. A conservatory with additional storage feeds directly onto a secluded private garden which feels incredibly peaceful: it is easy to forget you are indeed just a couple of minutes’ stroll from vibrant and buzzing Brixton Hill. This leafy and sunny space has convenient side access and is the perfect spot in which to host garden parties, or just relax with some alfresco dining, whenever the weather permits.

The property is a short stroll to the centre of Brixton, and first stop on the Victoria Line at the tube station. Brixton Hill is a stone’s throw, with its brilliant array of cafes, pubs and restaurants, such as F Mondays, Pizza Brixton, and the White Horse pub, to name a few. Purchasers will benefit from all that Brixton offers, from the celebrated cuisine in Brixton Village to the music venues and nightlife the area is famous for and first stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station, a ten to twelve minute walk away, whilst the green, open spaces of leafy Brockwell Park are within a stone's throw. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, characterful features, outside space and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer - we really like it.
