Property details

A beautifully presented ground floor flat offering generous proportions throughout with a private garden and two additional storage cupboards. Situated in the heart of the ever-popular Josephine Avenue Conservation area, a quiet and leafy network of similarly attractive Victorian terraced roads.

There is a beautifully presented open plan kitchen/reception room tucked away at the back of the building, providing the perfect space to relax and unwind. The kitchen has all that you need in terms of mod cons and there is plenty of room to dine, creating a family-friendly and sociable living area. The reception is bright and airy with modern spotlights and concertina doors which create a natural flow from inside to outside. Opening the bi-fold doors allows direct access into the peaceful and well-maintained private garden, ideal for relaxing or entertaining during the warmer months.

The master bedroom sits at the front of the house – a generous double room, boasting a feature fireplace, ample built-in storage and flooded with natural light owing to three large sash windows in the square bay. Sitting adjacent is the second double bedroom with a full-height glass door that opens into the un-extended side return and through to the garden. The two double bedrooms share a contemporary family bathroom. The flat is finished to a high standard with underfloor heating and is perfect for anyone looking to move into a new property hassle free. There is also the added bonus of a convenient utility area tucked away in the garden.

The property, with its excellent open plan living space and much sought-after garden space, is a perfect home, nestled in a leafy part of vibrant and thriving Brixton, on tree-lined Helix Road. Situated a ten-twelve minute stroll to all that central Brixton has to offer, purchasers also have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub. This exquisite flat 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 able to retire to the quieter village-like community that has been developed around Brixton Hill. First stop on the Victoria Line, Brixton tube station is a stroll down the hill, whisking you into central London and the City within a few minutes. The buses also offer a great alternative to the tube and train stations, with a bus stop at the end of the road, a stone’s throw from the development. The location is ideal with the green, open spaces of Brockwell Park within a five-minute walk. A pleasant fifteen-minute saunter across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes, restaurants and Sunday market of leafy Herne Hill. The village-feel continues with easy access to Dulwich Village, East Dulwich and trendy Peckham, catering for the wants and needs of the majority of potential purchasers.
