Property details

This immaculate two bedroom garden flat occupies the entire ground floor of one of the handsome, double-fronted terraces on Elm Park, a popular residential road, perfectly positioned within close proximity to the wonderful greenery of Brockwell Park, and all that central Brixton has to offer. The property has been converted with care and makes use of all available living space – making the most of its large rooms, rather than the square footage being used up in larger hallways.

At the front of the property sits the fantastic kitchen/reception room, with high ceilings and a bright bay window that create a light and airy atmosphere. The modern kitchen has been finished to a high standard, with sleek, gloss units and exposed brickwork. This is a wonderful entertaining space, with ample room for a large dining table. The room has been extended and flows seamlessly into a lovely conservatory/snug, full of natural light. Sliding doors open up onto the decked garden which runs the entire width of the property – ideal for winding down throughout the warmer months and sure to be used on a regular basis when the weather permits. A further reception area/study leads through to the two bedrooms, both genuine doubles and equal in size sharing a stylish recently fitted bathroom.

The property comprises a tasteful mix of characterful features and contemporary design and has the fantastic additional benefit of a spacious cellar for hiding away all the clutter purchasers are likely to acquire over time. This is an incredibly versatile flat, with a sociable, open-plan layout that can be altered to suit each individual’s needs.

Elm Park is situated a fifteen-minute stroll to the culinary and nightlife mecca of South London, Brixton, and five minutes to the green open spaces of Brockwell Park. A 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 ever-popular White Horse Pub. This delightful flat is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action but wants to retain a sense of calm. The first stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is a short stroll down the hill and multiple buses run up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes and through into central London. The buses offer a great alternative to the tube and train stations for commuters into central London, with buses coming and going every other minute. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style to the quiet neighbourhood feel and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer.

The property also has the benefit of being sold with the Freehold to the entire building.
