Property details

An exceptional example of a three double bedroom split-level apartment in a converted Victorian townhouse, 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 cared for and refurbished over a number of years by the current owners, resulting in a family home with an appealing blend of contemporary design and charming period features. With 1150 square feet of living space on offer, three large bedrooms and two family bathrooms, the property is sure to tick boxes for a wide range of purchasers. Holmewood 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. Brixton town centre and Brixton Village are within a fifteen to seventeen-minute walk, or a few minutes if you were to jump on one of the many buses that flow down Brixton Hill and into central London.

To the front is a separate reception room boasting high ceilings, wooden floorboards, bespoke shelving, a feature fireplace, a bay window and ample room for a large dining table. Adjacent to the living room is a comfortable double bedroom with similar characteristics to the living room and access to a contemporary family bathroom with a warm inviting feel. Tucked away at the back of the building is a great kitchen-diner with all you need in terms of mod cons, plenty of storage, exposed brickwork and lovely views of the neighbouring gardens at the rear.

Stairs lead to the second floor and two further spacious double bedrooms and an additional well-finished bathroom. The master bedroom is a fantastic loft-style room which is flooded with light through two large skylights and benefits from ample built-in storage in the eaves.

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 Clapham High Street and its multitude of restaurants and bars. There are excellent transport links with two Northern Line underground stations, Clapham High Street Station on the Overground and numerous bus routes to other areas of London. Brockwell Park and Clapham Common are both within walking distance and having the South Circular on your doorstep is perfect for anyone with a vehicle. Streatham Hill station is a twelve-minute walk with direct trains into Clapham Junction, Victoria and London Bridge. Share of freehold.
