Property details

A characterful four double bedroom, two bathroom period terraced house, located on a quiet and sleepy street between the amenities in Clapham and Brixton. Margate Road is located in a popular residential pocket of pretty Victorian terraces, equidistant to both sought-after locations, and will appeal to purchasers who are contemplating moving to the two areas.

This property has been lovingly modernised and extended by its present owners within recent years, whilst maintaining great sensitivity to the charm of this period. This includes a fantastically designed loft extension which has created a spacious double bedroom with multiple skylights and a second beautifully finished family bathroom with a separate bath and stand-alone shower. The contemporary kitchen is complete with underfloor heating and double doors that allow the living space to flow seamlessly into the well-maintained, landscaped South facing garden at the rear. Having a nice garden is now more important than ever and this wonderful sun trap is the perfect place in which to unwind with a book or host BBQs throughout the warmer months, worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The property also has the option of extending into the side return in the future (STPP).

The double aspect reception and dining room is packed full of character with high ceilings, original floorboards under the carpets and a wood burner. Last but not least the first floor comprises a modern bathroom and three double bedrooms, the larger of the two rooms at the front of the building and the smaller third room tucked away at the back with views over the neighbouring gardens at the rear.

With over 1300 square feet of internal living space, this family home is beautifully light and airy with a contemporary finish, ample built-in storage and ideal for any purchasers looking to move into a new house hassle-free. Margate Road, a peaceful road which is highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to both Brixton and Clapham. The bars and restaurants of Acre Lane are a short walk and within an eleven-minute stroll down the road is everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the extremely popular Brixton Village to large brand shops and cracking transport links. The vibrant and diverse Clapham High Street is an eleven-minute walk in the other direction, offering great nightlife and culinary delights. Potential purchasers will benefit from both the Northern Line (Clapham North, Clapham Common and Clapham South tube stations) and the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station). With the wonderful green spaces of Brockwell Park and its iconic 1930s Lido also within easy reach, the location cannot be understated. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, size, outside space and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer.
