Property details

This bright and airy one double bedroom flat is nestled on the top floor of one of the handsome Victorian terraces on Helix Road, a highly sought-after residential road, perfectly located in the heart of the Josephine conservation area, a ten-twelve minute walk from the amenities and transport links in central Brixton.

The spacious double bedroom is tucked away quietly to the rear of the property, with views across the leafy neighbouring gardens. Sitting adjacent is the separate reception room which is flooded with natural light through the skylight and the glass loft hatch which provides convenient access to loft space. There is another section of the loft which is accessed through the modern bathroom and offers fantastic development potential, subject to the necessary permissions. Last but not least the kitchen provides all you need in terms of worktop and storage space. The flat is perfect for a purchaser to move in hassle-free, neutrally decorated and ready for the new owner to stamp their own mark over time.

The property is located 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.
