Property details

This superb two-bedroom apartment, located within Brixton’s most cherished conservation area, is a rare find: nestled within this perfectly designed, modern development, yet with all the charm and character of a Victorian property. The development, set back from Josephine Avenue and accessed via its own communal front gardens, was built around five years ago with tremendous attention to detail, mock-Victorian elegance and luxury, whilst being engineered to meet all the requirements of modern living. With the rolling greenery of the award-winning Brockwell Park a three minute walk away, the enormous variety of night-life and restaurants on offer ten minutes away in Brixton, and three train stations on different lines each within easy reach as well as the Underground, the location cannot be overstated.

At the front of the property, the open plan kitchen/reception room is a bright and stylish space with ample room for dining, relaxing and entertaining, and benefits from an abundance of natural light thanks to a lovely bay window, offering views over the leafy front garden. The country-style kitchen oozes charm whilst offering a high standard of practicality, with plenty of storage and top of the range appliances. Down the hallway, there is some fantastic storage in the form of a spacious cupboard and a convenient cloakroom. The two bedrooms are tucked away quietly to the rear of the flat, overlooking the peaceful shared garden. The master bedroom is a generous size, whilst the second bedroom is also a comfortable double room, ideal for use as a guest room, study, or even to rent out if needed. The bedrooms are separated by a contemporary family bathroom with trendy metro tiling, benefitting from a sash window.

Further benefits include a large, well-maintained, shared rear garden, secure bike storage and off-street parking (operating on a first-come, first-served basis). Nestled amongst Victorian terraces on handsome, tree-lined Josephine Avenue, the property can only be recognised as a modern build by the higher level of detailing and crispness of its features within, with the shapes, lines, light and feel only available from the very best of contemporary building design.

Situated a ten-minute stroll to all that central Brixton has to offer, the popular establishments on Brixton Hill are also easily reached at the end of the road, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub. This elegant apartment is ideal for anyone who wants to be close to the action while maintaining a sense of calm. The new owner will have the best of both worlds, with everything on offer in the hustle and bustle of central Brixton, yet will be able to retire to the quieter, village-like community that has been developed around Brixton Hill. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is only a ten-minute stroll away, whisking you into central London and the City within a few minutes.
