Property details

A well-appointed one bedroom flat, on the raised ground floor of a charming Victorian converted house. Chaucer Road is located in Poets’ Corner, a highly sought-after residential area, equidistant to both Brixton and Herne Hill, and will appeal to purchasers who are contemplating moving to both areas.

The property boasts a wonderfully bright, semi open plan kitchen/reception room at the front of the house, flooded with natural light from the lovely bay window, which offers views across the pretty, peaceful street. High ceilings provide a light and airy atmosphere throughout and attractive wooden floorboards give the room a stylish, cosy feel. Cornicing and sash windows add character and there is plenty of space for both relaxing and dining. The living room flows seamlessly through to the modern kitchen which is tastefully designed and compliments the smart finish throughout the rest of the property. The bedroom is a well-proportioned double room with floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes, tucked away quietly at the back of the building with lovely views of the neighbouring gardens. The modern and inviting bathroom completes the rooms within the apartment. This is a beautifully, yet neutrally presented flat, perfect for anyone looking to move in straight away and stamp their own mark over time. The apartment is situated in a popular location and unlike a lot of similar conversions, the majority of the total square footage is useable living space, as opposed to being distributed within larger hallways.

Chaucer Road is situated in the heart of Poets’ Corner, a highly desirable pocket of residential roads between leafy Herne Hill and vibrant Brixton. Herne Hill station is a seven minute walk with access to Canary Wharf in thirty-eight minutes and Victoria within seventeen 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 within a stone’s throw, along with its beautiful 1930’s Lido.

All in all, a fantastic flat in a wonderful location: this property will appeal to a wide range of purchasers, from first time buyers, to buy to let investors alike.
