Property details

We are pleased to bring to market this beautiful Victorian four-bedroom house, situated in the extremely popular residential pocket of Holmewood Gardens, a short stroll from Brixton Hill. Holmewood Gardens is a quiet residential street which surrounds a pretty garden square and is within a fifteen to seventeen-minute walk to Brixton town centre, or a few minutes if you were to jump on one of the many buses that flow down Brixton Hill.

The property has been lovingly cared for by the current owners and is a light and airy mix of contemporary design and characterful features which include; period fireplaces, coving and Victorian tiling in the hallways. With acres of room, three/four bedrooms and leafy views across the park opposite, it is hard to remind yourself that you are indeed first stop on the Victoria line in Brixton, located within close proximity to central London.

The property has a double aspect reception and dining room at the front of the building which is packed full of characterful features which include wooden double doors that allow the two rooms to be separated, features fireplaces, wooden flooring, a bay window and coving. The current owners have lovingly refurbished the property over the years and really thought about the work they have completed. An example of this are the two hatchways in the reception and dining room, which reveal a cavernous area that has been dug out below the living space, acting perfectly as additional storage space. Tucked away at the rear of the house is the eat-in kitchen diner with a door at the rear that opens out onto the private garden. The kitchen has been extended into the side return to create a convenient utility area and pantry.

On the upper floors sit three double bedrooms, a smaller fourth bedroom and three bathrooms. The master bedroom is a fantastic size, running the width of the property with a bay window that allows natural light to flood into the room. The master leads through a walk-in wardrobe and into a spacious en-suite bathroom complete with bath and separate walk-in shower. This room is configured as a double bedroom in similar houses on the road and it could be altered to a fourth double bedroom, should that suit the new purchaser's needs. The total square footage is large and allows potential purchasers to alter the layout to best suit their own lifestyle. Subject to permission there is the opportunity to increase the footprint by altering the un-converted loft.

The area is highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to Brixton, Streatham Hill and Clapham. Streatham Hill station is a twelve-minute walk with direct trains into Clapham Junction, Victoria and London Bridge. Within an eighteen-minute walk you reach the centre of Brixton and Clapham Common is twenty-one minutes away.

On one hand, you have everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the culinary delights of Brixton Village to large brand-shops and cracking transport links, first stop on the Victoria Line. Multiple buses run up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes and fortunately this house is a stone's throw from a local bus stop with buses coming and going every other minute. On the other hand, you have Clapham High Street and its multitude of restaurants and bars. There are excellent transport links with two Northern Line underground stations, Clapham High Street Station on the Overground and numerous bus routes to other areas of London. Brockwell Park and Clapham Common are both within walking distance and the South Circular is handily close-by.
