The modern kitchen boasts all you may need in terms of storage and cooking space. From the kitchen there is access onto a balcony with steps down to a delightful private garden – a lovely, leafy spot in which to relax in the sun with a drink during the warmer months of the year. The bedrooms are both a fantastic size, sharing a contemporary bathroom. With both bedrooms being genuine doubles, and separated on different levels for additional privacy, the property is an ideal investment for anyone looking to rent out a room, or indeed for use as a home office, guest room or nursery. The property also has the fantastic benefit of access to a substantial, demised loft space - a great option for storage and offering development potential, subject to the necessary permissions.

This handsome Victorian terrace is nestled within a popular pocket of SW2, sandwiched between Brixton and Clapham. The cafes, bars and restaurants of up-and-coming Acre Lane are easily accessible, with local heroes such as Boqueria Tapas, The Beast of Brixton, and Blank Coffee, to name a few, all on the doorstep. Within a further few minutes’ walk down the road, purchasers will find themselves in the heart of Brixton, with Brixton Village, POP Brixton, The Ritzy cinema and the legendary music venues, Brixton Academy and Brixton Electric, all at their fingertips. In the other direction, is vibrant and bustling Clapham High Street offering cracking nightlife, culinary delights and the green open spaces of Clapham Common. A short 10-minute stroll brings you to Abbeville Village with an abundance of local shops including The Ginger Pig butchers, MacFarlanes Dairy and the charming pub, The Abbeville. Potential purchasers will benefit from the Northern Line (Clapham North and Clapham Common tube stations) and the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station).
