Property details

This is a wonderful two/three double bedroom, split-level maisonette, in a pretty residential road in a popular residential pocket between Brixton, Herne Hill and Loughborough Junction.

This apartment occupies the ground two floors of a grand period building with a lovely Victorian façade and overlooks the park opposite. The property is entered through a private entrance and has nearly 1100 square feet of internal living space.

The two bedrooms on the raised ground floor are both comfortable double bedrooms and they share a modern family bathroom. The master bedroom has a lovely view of the park through the characterful bay window and the high ceilings add to the light and airy atmosphere throughout.

Stairs lead down to the reception room, which could be used as a third bedroom, is situated at the front of the building with characterful features that include a period fireplace, bespoke shelving and another bay window. The kitchen is contemporary with plenty of storage and leads through to the show-stopper; a stunning dining room or second reception with double-height ceilings and skylights. Stairs lead up to a mezzanine level with a wall of characterful wooden doors that allow the living space to flow seamlessly into the private, beautifully maintained South-East facing private rear garden.

The property is currently configured as a two-bedroom maisonette with a separate kitchen and dining room at the back of the building with two bedrooms and a lovely separate reception room. Configured as a three-bedroom maisonette the room at the front of the building could easily act as a bedroom with an open plan reception and kitchen at the rear. This flexibility is a fantastic selling point, allowing the layout to be altered depending on the purchaser's search parameters.

The apartment is ideally located close to Herne Hill and minutes from the increasingly popular Loughborough Junction and a stone’s throw from Ruskin Park. With Brockwell Park, Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants and Brixton and Dulwich all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all potential purchasers. The flat has excellent transport links, with access to Thameslink services (Loughborough Junction and Herne Hill), the East London Line (Denmark Hill) and the Underground (Victoria Line, Brixton) all within walking distance. A lovely maisonette in a popular area, only a stone's throw from Herne Hill town centre but far enough away to retain a sleepy, neighbourhood feel. Share of freehold.
