Property details

An impressive two double bedroom apartment with over 1100 square feet of internal living space, between the amenities in Clapham and Brixton. Queenswood Court is perfectly located, set back from Kings Avenue and equidistant to both of these popular neighbourhoods. With the charming Abbeville Village also within a few minutes’ walk, the location cannot be understated.

The apartment is located on the top floor of this grand and imposing period mansion block, and with such a generous square footage, purchasers will be hard-pressed to find many flats that boast such great dimensions. The spacious separate reception room at the front of the property is a real show-stopper, with a bright, West-facing bay window – not only ensuring the room enjoys an abundance of natural light but also providing pleasant views of the surrounding flora and fauna, as well as some beautiful sunsets. Just across the hallway is the stylish kitchen-diner – perfect for those who enjoy entertaining on a regular basis, with plenty of space for a large dining table. The sleek, white kitchen units and worktops are fitted to a high standard and give the room a contemporary, minimalist feel, whilst integrated appliances and plenty of storage space ensure that both practicality and style are kept at the forefront. The layout feels incredibly sociable and this beautiful kitchen is sure to become a wonderful hub of the home.

The two bedrooms are both spacious double rooms, tucked away down the central hallway that adds to the sense of space throughout the property. The master bedroom boasts a luxurious ensuite bathroom complete with a walk-in shower, and large fitted wardrobes that make excellent use of the space. The second bedroom is also a comfortable double room, along with further built-in storage and served by the tastefully finished family bathroom. The apartment benefits from an abundance of storage throughout and access to substantial loft space – a rare find within flats in the area, and a real selling point. Further benefits include off-street parking for two vehicles to the front of the building, plus the huge bonus of a large private garage to the rear – perfect for further parking if required or indeed for some additional secure storage. There is also an additional, fourth secure parking space to the front of the garage - a real rarity in the area. The flat is beautifully presented by the current owners, a light and airy mix of contemporary design and tasteful themes and colourways. The modern, double-glazed crittall windows keep the property insulated to the highest of modern standards whilst adding some great character.

Queenswood Court is a popular period mansion block, much cherished by current residents, who enjoy use of the well-maintained, shared garden, a peaceful and leafy spot in which to relax and catch some rays. The building enjoys a real sense of community, with regular BBQs and summer picnics in the garden and a thriving residents’ group that has created a fantastic neighbourly spirit amongst the residents over the years. The bars and restaurants of Acre Lane are a short walk and within a fifteen-minute stroll down the road is everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the extremely popular Brixton Village to large brand shops and cracking transport links. The vibrant and diverse Clapham High Street is a thirteen-minute walk in the other direction, offering great nightlife and culinary delights. Potential purchasers will benefit from both the Northern Line (Clapham North, Clapham Common and Clapham South tube stations) and the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station). The rolling green spaces of Brockwell Park and its iconic 1930s Lido also within easy reach. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, size, secure parking options, and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer.
