Property details

A fantastic example of a three double bedroom Victorian split-level flat, this property on Leander Road will appeal to a wide range of purchasers. The property is situated in the heart of the ever-popular Josephine Avenue Conservation area, a quiet and leafy network of similarly attractive, Victorian terraced roads. The centre of Brixton, South London's new culinary mecca, is a thirteen-minute walk, with all it has to offer in terms of restaurants, nightlife and transport links, whilst two of Brixton’s most sought-after primary schools are also within a short stroll. Arguably London’s finest open space, Brockwell Park, with its iconic 1930s Lido, is on the doorstep. Herne Hill is a pleasant fifteen-minute walk through the park, with its village charm and eclectic array of shops and pubs. With Brixton Village, Brockwell Park, and Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants all within easy walking distance, there is something to cater for all purchasers.

With over 860 square feet of internal living space, the property offers generous proportions throughout, and three genuine double bedrooms, which is difficult to find in this price bracket in Brixton. This light and airy property has an entrance on the ground floor with stairs that lead to the first-floor landing. The first floor consists of a characterful separate reception room that spans the width of the building. There is ample room to relax, whilst the feature fireplace, square bay window and high ceilings, all contribute to the characterful feel throughout the flat. There is a recently fitted kitchen, complete with all the mod cons. Two double bedrooms share a bright hallway, both quietly tucked away to the rear of the property and benefitting from some handy fitted storage. Upstairs on the second floor is the modern shower room and the third double bedroom which has views over the neighbouring gardens at the rear. The staircases meandering up through the property, a substantial square footage and plenty of characterful features make this charming split level apartment feel like a home. Access to the loft provides a handy storage space to hide all those belongings that are not used on a daily basis.

In short, a wonderful apartment with great proportions, on a desirable street – close to the action but far enough away to retain a real sense of calm.

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.
