Property details

This three double bedroom, two bathroom house is a rare gem, tucked away in one of the most prestigious areas of South West London.

Archbishops Place is a tranquil and leafy close-knit community that feels so secluded, it's easy to forget how close you are to the action. A wealth of well-tended gardens and historic charm will endear any potential purchaser and the privacy of this particular property is emphasized by being set back from the road by a pathway that leads you to the front door.

On entering the property, you are met by a large open plan reception room, complimented by beautiful original features such as the fireplace and large timber-framed sash windows.

Following through towards the rear of the ground floor, a spacious dining area with garden access connects on to a stylish kitchen complete with a classic Belfast sink looking out onto the pretty garden. There is also a convenient bathroom located on this floor.

The large Master bedroom and a recently fitted en-suite bathroom reside on the first floor, next to the equally large second bedroom which faces the front of the property with two beautiful sash windows that look out onto the leafy surroundings and allow for an abundance natural light to filter into the room.

The converted loft room is airy and bright, providing an ideal space that could be used as an office or spare bedroom.

Set a few minutes from Brixton Hill, this exclusive, sleepy road is surprisingly well connected. A fifteen-minute stroll to the culinary and nightlife mecca of South London, Brixton, and five minutes to the green open spaces of Brockwell Park. A fifteen-minute walk across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes and restaurants of Herne Hill. Purchasers also have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance.

In summary, this is a rare opportunity to purchase a preciously characterful property in one of the most exclusive areas of Brixton.
