This property is packed full of character with fantastic dimensions and really makes the most of its large rooms and open spaces. Split over four levels and with over 1240 square feet of internal space, there is a light and airy atmosphere throughout. The double aspect reception and eat-in kitchen diner is a stunning room with high ceilings, wooden floorboards, bespoke shelving and a feature fireplace. An amazing entertaining area which spans the width of the building with views out of the square bay window over the neighbouring terrace row. The contemporary kitchen has all you need in terms of mod cons and ample room for a large dining table. The three double bedrooms are on separate floors and like the reception room, all have great dimensions. The master bedroom suite is tucked away quietly at the top of the building and has been converted in style with plentiful built-in storage and access to a beautifully finished bathroom with separate bath and walk-in shower. There are two further modern bathrooms, leaving the new purchasers spoilt for choice.

This bright apartment is nestled in a leafy part of vibrant and thriving Brixton, cushioned amongst the attractive Victorian houses of beautiful, tree-lined Helix Road.

The buses also offer a great alternative to the tube and train stations, with a bus stop at the end of the road, a stone’s throw from the development.
