Property details

A stunning split-level four bedroom, three bathroom apartment occupying the first and second floors of a converted, grand semi-detached Victorian townhouse, located perfectly in a residential pocket bordering the centre of Herne Hill.

In a house of this grandeur, there are some endearing features to enjoy such as a wider staircase and a classically pretty balcony residing off the main reception room. The first floor of this property, which boasts the handsome open-plan reception room is full of character with a beautiful fire place and the balcony is over-looking the neighbouring gardens and rooftops.

The large connecting kitchen opens out into this room, providing a lovely communal space to dine, socialise and entertain. There is also a conveniently located bathroom on this floor.

On the second floor, you are met by three large rooms. A Master bedroom with an en-suite, a second double bedroom which boasts ample built-in storage, a pretty mezzanine room which the current owners are using as a second reception room or home office, alongside a smaller room which is being occupied by a nursery bedroom. Of course, with a property of this size there is a lot of potential in re-purposing rooms to suit the needs of the buyer and the floor is complimented by a modern family sized bathroom.

As well as the balcony, there is a private section of a large, sunny garden which is split off by pretty trees and it is accessed via the side. The property overlooks a pretty pocket of Herne Hill and is full of charm and style. It would truly suit someone who does not want a run of the mill flat, with the mezzanine, high ceilings and gorgeous original windows, it is truly a gem.
