Property details

An elegant example of a five double bedroom Victorian terraced house, perfectly located on this peaceful road, 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 stylish house has been finished to a high standard, resulting in a stunning family home with a tasteful blend of contemporary design and charming period features. With wonderful living space on offer, five double bedrooms, and a secluded garden to match, it is hard to remind yourself that you are, indeed, only around a ten-minute walk away from the Victoria line, with easy access into Central London and beyond.

To the front of the property is a wonderfully bright and airy, dual-aspect reception room, complete with a lovely bay window and a charming log burner. High ceilings really amplify the sense of space, which has been completely opened up to create a stunning area in which to relax, dine and entertain guests. The space flows seamlessly from the reception room and into a sleek, white gloss, eat-in kitchen – which has been fully extended to make use of all available space. This has created the ideal hub of the home, providing all you may need in terms of storage, worktop space and appliances, as well as plenty of room for a large dining area. Multiple skylights and double glass doors allow light to flood the space, the latter leading onto the beautiful rear garden. This lovely, 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. The garden has the fantastic benefit of an outdoor studio, with electricity and internet connections – perfect for anyone who requires a quiet space in which to work or study from home.

On the first floor sit three bedrooms and a modern bathroom. The master bedroom is a fantastic size, running the width of the property with a large sash windows that helps to create an airy feel, and some great storage in the form of fitted wardrobes. To the rear are two further double bedrooms, each benefitting from pleasant views of the garden. There is a stylish, recently fitted family bathroom which serves the bedrooms on this floor. Stairs lead up to a well-executed loft conversion, which has resulted in two further bedrooms with full ceiling height. The larger of the two rooms has the additional benefit of a luxurious en-suite bathroom, creating the perfect guest suite, quietly tucked away at the top of the house.

Torrens Road is a quiet street that prides itself on its real sense of community, with residents enjoying annual street parties and a welcoming, neighbourly atmosphere. The property 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.

In short, a beautiful terrace on a sought-after street, close to the action but far enough away to retain a real sense of calm. Freehold.
