The bedrooms share a neutral, modern bathroom. The flat is a fantastic mix of contemporary design and characterful features that include exposed brickwork in the reception room and striking original Victorian tiling in the hallway.

The living area is engulfed with light thanks to multiple skylights and French doors. These allow a seamless transition into the South facing private garden, a peaceful suntrap that feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city life. With over 800 square feet of internal living space, this is a beautiful home with an ideal layout for modern tastes.

Additional selling points include; a cellar which offers fantastic storage solutions and doubles up as a utility area with a washing machine and room for a tumble dryer, an allocated off-street parking space and an additional 60 foot shared garden located at the front of the building.

Helix Gardens and Josephine Avenue have a real sense of community, with a residents’ association and a yearly art fair, situated a ten-minute stroll to the centre of Brixton and a five-minute stroll to the green open spaces of Brockwell Park. A pleasant fifteen-minute walk across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes and restaurants of Herne Hill. Purchasers have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance and they include F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub. This characterful garden flat is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action but would prefer to retain a sense of calm. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is just a ten-minute walk away. The property has a supermarket at either end of the road and the pubs, bars and restaurants of Brixton Hill and Effra Road are a five minute walk. The property benefits from all that Brixton offers, from the celebrated cuisine in Brixton Village and POP Brixton to the music venues and nightlife the area is famous for. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, secluded country feel, size, outside space, storage and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer - we really like it. Chain-free.
