Property details

An elegant, split level, three-bedroom flat, occupying the top floors of an attractive Victorian terrace in Poets’ Corner. Spenser Road is a charming, tree-lined road in this highly sought-after network of streets, sandwiched between Herne Hill and Brixton.

This is a beautifully presented home, an appealing mix of elegant design and characterful features, with staircases meandering up the property that promote a spacious and airy atmosphere. The property is split over various levels which amplifies the feeling of space, and with three comfortable double bedrooms, the versatile layout lends itself to anyone looking to rent out the spare bedrooms or share with friends, whilst maintaining a sense of space and privacy. With two modern bathrooms, the property has been converted with both style and practicality in mind.

The separate reception room runs the entire width of the property, complete with a lovely working fireplace, bespoke storage, sash windows and high ceilings. The living space is fantastic – ample space for dining, relaxing and entertaining – and is in keeping with the bright and tasteful finish throughout the flat. The spacious master bedroom is adjacent, benefitting from some excellent fitted wardrobes and overlooking the pretty neighbouring gardens. To the rear of the flat is the recently fitted kitchen with its stylish country-style shaker units, boasting all you need in terms of fitted appliances and worktop space. The family bathroom is contemporary and neutral, complete with trendy metro tiling and underfloor heating. Up a flight of stairs are two further double bedrooms, both comfortable doubles and tucked away quietly at the top of the property, sharing a further luxurious bathroom, with a walk-in shower and underfloor heating.

Spenser Road is situated in the heart of Poets’ Corner, a highly desirable residential pocket of roads between Herne Hill and Brixton. Herne Hill station is an eight-minute walk and Brixton tube station is a ten-minute stroll. Victoria is accessible within sixteen minutes, Blackfriars is twenty minutes, London Bridge is twenty-four minutes and Canary Wharf is within thirty-seven 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 the market are within easy reach. The open spaces of the Green Flag award Brockwell Park are also at the end of the road, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and sports facilities.

With Brockwell Park, Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants and Brixton Village all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all tastes. In short, a stylish home in a sought-after area, only a stone's throw from Herne Hill town centre but far enough away to retain a sleepy, neighbourhood feel.
