Property details

A majestic six-bedroom Victorian terrace, located just moments from two of Brixton’s most popular primary schools and an eight-minute stroll from the fantastic transport links at Brixton station.

This beautiful family home has been lovingly cared for by the current owner and is a light and airy mix of contemporary design and characterful features, including fireplaces, pretty coving and sash windows. With acres of room, over 2500 square feet of internal space, incredible open-plan living space on the ground floor, six double bedrooms, four bathrooms and a secluded garden to match, it’s easy to forget that you are indeed still in the heart of Brixton, a stone’s throw from everything that this sought-after neighbourhood is famous for.

The ground floor comprises a grand dual-aspect reception room, with a bay window and packed full of characterful features, which has been opened up to allow for a seamless transition into a stunning kitchen-diner. The tastefully finished kitchen has been fully extended to make use of all available space, creating the ideal hub of the home, providing all you may need in terms of storage, worktop space and appliances, with a convenient kitchen island/breakfast bar, as well as plenty of room for a large dining area. This beautiful space is perfect for family meals or entertaining guests and is sure to provide some wow factor. Multiple skylights and double glass doors allow light to flood the space, the latter leading onto the large rear garden. This sunny, well-maintained garden provides the ideal spot in which to unwind with a book or host BBQs throughout the warmer months and feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city life. There is also access to a spacious cellar, ideal for storage or for use as a handy utility area.

On the first floor, the incredible master suite is a fantastic size, running the width of the property with a large bay window that helps to create an airy feel. A large ensuite bathroom oozes luxury, with a stand-alone roll-top bath and separate walk-in shower. To the rear is another double bedroom, benefitting from pleasant views of the garden, and a separate WC. Up a further flight of stairs, there are two further generous double bedrooms and a smaller third bedroom, served by a modern family bathroom. On the top floor is a second family bathroom, and last but not least is the brilliantly executed loft conversion, resulting in a wonderful bedroom suite with skylights and a contemporary ensuite bathroom.

The total square footage is large and allows potential purchasers to alter the layout to best suit their own lifestyle. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the generous size, unrivalled living space, sunny garden, and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer.

Horsford Road is situated an eight-minute stroll to central Brixton, and a five-minute stroll to the green open spaces of Brockwell Park. A fourteen-minute walk across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes and the market in leafy Herne Hill. Both Sudbourne School and Corpus Christi primary schools (Ofsted rated Outstanding) are also within a few minutes’ walk. Purchasers will have the amenities on Brixton Hill within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub. The location is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action, yet retain a sense of calm. 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 onwards into central London.
