Property details

This exceptional Victorian flat occupies the ground floor of one of the prettiest terraced houses in Poets Corner. Shakespeare Road is a quaint, tree-lined Victorian road sandwiched between similar roads in this sought after pocket alongside Brockwell Park and located between Herne Hill and Brixton. The building is in fantastic condition and purchasers will benefit from the private section of the front garden, which is a perfect space to enjoy the warmer months.

The property is entered through its own front door and has multiple selling points, although the pièce de résistance has to be the open plan reception and kitchen diner. A fantastic room with characterful features including high ceilings, wooden flooring, a bay window and wood burner. The kitchen is contemporary with ample room for a large dining table and there is also plenty of space for a dedicated area to relax. The bedroom is a comfortable double room and the bathroom is modern. There is also a substantial cellar which offers storage options for even the most experienced hoarders. The flat is in fantastic condition with a refreshing mix of period features and contemporary design throughout.

With Brockwell Park, Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants and Brixton Village all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all potential purchasers. In short, a lovely flat in a lovely building in a lovely street in a lovely area, only a stone's throw from Herne Hill and Brixton town centres but far enough away to retain a sleepy, neighbourhood feel. This is a real gem. Share of freehold.
