Property details

A split level, two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, occupying the top floors of a handsome Victorian terraced house, perfectly located in this leafy pocket of Brixton. With over 900 square feet of internal living space, this secure, top floor apartment offers generous proportions throughout and is split over various levels, amplifying the feeling of space and creating a light and airy atmosphere. The property has been lovingly renovated by the current owners, without distracting from the delightful period features, and really making the most of the abundance of natural light throughout.

Situated on Arodene Road, an attractive residential road located within the Josephine Avenue Conservation Area, this popular street benefits from a quiet and sleepy setting. The property is only a short walk away from some of Brixton’s most popular primary schools, the local amenities of vibrant Brixton Hill, the ever-popular Brockwell Park and the fantastic variety of nightlife and eateries on offer in central Brixton. With access to the Victoria line at Brixton tube station within a twelve-minute stroll and Herne Hill a pleasant fifteen-minute walk through the park, the location cannot be overstated.

There is a substantial reception room which spans the entire width of the building, packed full of characterful features, including period cornicing, a feature fireplace and a bay window. With ample room to relax and entertain, this elegant room is sure to be used on a regular basis. A spacious separate kitchen diner sits at the rear of the property, providing plenty of space for a dining table. The stylish kitchen boasts solid oak worktops, top-of-the-range appliances and all you may need in terms of storage and cooking space.

The bedrooms are both a fantastic size, separated on different floors and tucked away quietly to the rear of the property. Both are generous double rooms, making the property an ideal investment for anyone looking to rent out a room or share with friends, along with the two luxurious bathrooms within the flat. Further benefits include double-glazed hardwood sash windows, plenty of built-in storage, a convenient utility cupboard in the hallway and access to a large loft, which could be converted into an additional double bedroom, subject to purchasing the space from the freeholder and the necessary permissions.

Arodene 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. Having access to a green space is now more important than ever for our wellbeing – luckily, the lush, 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 finish, layout, and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer. A cracking flat.
