Property details

This elegant two double bedroom garden flat occupies the ground floor of one of the handsome Victorian terraces on Leander Road, a popular residential street, perfectly located for the amenities and transport links in central Brixton, yet far enough away to retain a sense of calm. This beautifully airy apartment is well-presented and feels like a home as soon as you walk through the door.

To the front of the flat is a smart reception room, tastefully finished and packed full of character, including a charming bay window, a feature fireplace, high ceilings with attractive cornicing, and exposed wooden flooring. Adjacent is the spacious master bedroom with built-in storage, and direct access to the private garden via French doors. The second bedroom is also a good size, benefitting from a charming bay window, and is ideal for use as a guest room, study, or child’s bedroom. The bathroom is sleek and modern, with stylish tiling, separating the two bedrooms. The eat-in kitchen, tucked away to the rear of the flat, is the perfect family hub, benefitting from large skylights and bi-folding patio doors that allow natural light to flood the room, creating an airy atmosphere. There is plenty of room for a large dining table, perfect for those who enjoy entertaining on a regular basis. The space flows effortlessly onto the quiet and serene private garden. This leafy space is lovely for entertaining during the spring and summer months and provides the perfect spot in which to relax. The flat also benefits from a spacious cellar, perfect for hiding away all the clutter purchasers will accumulate over time, as well as providing a convenient utility area.

Leander Road is a short walk to the centre of Brixton, whilst a large supermarket and various cafes, pubs and restaurants, such as Brockwell Blend, The Hootenanny and Naughty Piglets are also right on your doorstep. The green, open spaces of Brockwell Park are also a stone’s throw away, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and fantastic sports facilities. The amenities in Herne Hill are a pleasant stroll through Brockwell Park and the property will appeal to purchasers considering moving to both areas.

There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, layout, outside space, and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer.
