Property details

A beautifully presented example of a four double bedroom Victorian house, this property on Leander Road will tick boxes for a wide range of purchasers. The property is situated in the heart of the ever-popular Josephine Avenue Conservation area, a quiet and leafy network of similarly attractive, Victorian terraced roads. The centre of Brixton is a ten-minute walk, with all it has to offer in terms of restaurants, nightlife and transport links, whilst two of Brixton’s most sought-after primary schools are also within a short stroll. Herne Hill is a fifteen-minute walk, with its village charm and eclectic array of shops and pubs, as well as what many local residents regard as London's best open space, Brockwell Park and its 1930’s Lido. With Brixton Village, Brockwell Park, and Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all purchasers.

The property is a light and airy mix of contemporary design and characterful features which include; wooden flooring, high ceilings and feature fireplaces. The ground floor comprises of a wonderfully bright and airy double-aspect reception room with doors onto the un-extended side return and a spacious kitchen-diner. The kitchen is the perfect family hub, with sleek white units and fully integrated appliances. There is plenty of space for a large dining table as well as a sociable breakfast bar. Bi-folding doors create a seamless transition from inside to outside where purchasers will enjoy relaxing in the sunny and peaceful rear garden. The property also has a large cellar, ideal for storage.

On the upper floors are the four double bedrooms – the master bedroom is a fantastic size, running the width of the property with a bay window that allow natural light to flood into the room, and a pretty feature fireplace. The further bedrooms are all genuine doubles, sharing a sleek, modern family bathroom. The total square footage could be added to by extending up into the substantial loft space, subject to the necessary permissions, allowing potential purchasers to alter the layout to best suit their own lifestyle. This is an elegant home in a perfect location – a beautiful terrace on a sought-after street, close to the action but far enough away to retain a real sense of calm.
