Brixton is a melting pot of culture, cuisine and creativity. An explosion of inventive, new restaurants, pop-ups, fashion stores and art galleries sit alongside the many great pubs, music venues and nightclubs that have been around for years. Transport links are excellent, with London Underground (Victoria Line) trains reaching central London in 12 minutes. If you’re craving green space, Brockwell Park and its famed Art Deco lido are close by. Brixton brings together all the best things about London and is one of the most vibrant and diverse places to live south of the river.Brixton area guide

The property is ideally located within close proximity to the vast greenery of Brockwell Park, and all that central Brixton has to offer.
There are two double bedrooms, with the generously-sized master bedroom boasting a large bay window, flooding the room with natural light. The exposed original floorboards give the room a rich warmth, and there is ample room for storage. The second bedroom is also a genuine double, making the property a great investment for anyone looking to rent out a bedroom or share with friends. The spacious bathroom is contemporary, tiled throughout and benefiting from a window. The wide central hallway leads comfortably to each room and provides space for a desk or additional storage, whilst the large utility room provides ample storage space – a rare find within similar conversions.
The separate kitchen is a stylish mix of wooden worktops, white gloss units and tiled floors, creating a fantastic place to cook, with both style and practicality kept at the forefront. Just adjacent is the exquisite reception room: a truly beautiful living space, packed full of character and with plenty of room in which to relax, dine and entertain guests. The elegant parquet flooring, charming feature fireplace and high ceilings come together to give the room a wonderfully inviting atmosphere. The wide bay window, with original shutters, allows sunlight to flood the room and French doors provide access out onto the private patio. This low-maintenance, peaceful patio is a real suntrap and feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle – the ideal spot in which to relax and get away from the stresses of modern life, tucked away quietly and surrounded by greenery. The built-in BBQ is likely to be used regularly and helps to create a fabulous outdoor entertaining space.
The property is perfectly located just off Brixton Hill, a fifteen minute walk to all that Brixton has to offer in terms of food and nightlife, and a five minute stroll to the green, open spaces of the award-winning Brockwell Park, its iconic Lido and unrivalled sports facilities. A pleasant twenty minute walk across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes and restaurants of leafy Herne Hill. Purchasers will have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub, whilst local favourites such as Le Daily Corner cafe and the Elm Park Tavern are on the doorstep. This beautifully presented garden flat is ideal for anyone who wants to be close to the action but would prefer to retain a sense of calm. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is a short stroll away as well as the multiple buses running up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few short minutes and on into central London, whilst the transport links and amenities of Tulse Hill and Herne Hill are also within easy reach, providing rail connections to London Bridge, Blackfriars and Farringdon in around 20 minutes.
