Property details

Keating Estates are delighted to present this elegant and characterful four double bedroom Victorian terraced townhouse to market. This property has been lovingly cared for and refurbished by the current owners with enormous sensitivity to the period character of the property. Nestled in Leander Road (a sought-after, quiet road in the heart of the Josephine Avenue conservation area) the property is only a short walk away from local shops, Brockwell Park and the enormous variety of amenities on offer in central Brixton. With three overground stations on different lines within easy reach, as well as first stop on the Victoria line at Brixton tube, its location cannot be overstated. The building says quality from top to bottom, with fantastic dimensions and over 1700 square feet of internal living space.

The house boasts an attractive Victorian façade and you enter the property on the ground floor into a spacious hallway with characterful tiled flooring and access to a tanked carpeted cellar which offers fantastic storage options. The hallway feeds a double aspect reception and dining room with high ceilings, feature fireplaces, coving and double-glazed timber sash windows with shutters. The dining room flows wonderfully through to the stunning, fully-extended, eat-in kitchen diner, tucked away at the back of the building.

This contemporary kitchen is the heart of the home and finished to an excellent standard throughout with concertina doors that allow the living space to flow seamlessly into the secluded private garden at the rear. The kitchen has all you need in terms of mod cons, a utility cupboard for a stacked washing machine and tumble dryer, a central island, underfloor heating and four skylights that allow natural light to flood through the room. The manicured garden has a patio area ideal for BBQ’s throughout the warmer months, mature flowerbeds and a lawn with high quality artificial grass, perfect for outdoor entertaining. A convenient WC completes the rooms on the ground floor.

On the upper floors sit four comfortable double bedrooms and two beautifully finished bathrooms with underfloor heating. Last but not least there is access to substantial loft space which could be converted to add value and increase the overall size of this family home.

Leander Road is a residential, terraced street popular for its close proximity to both Brixton (twelve minute walk) and Herne Hill (fifteen minute walk) town centres. As locations go, it is fantastic. A short walk to Brixton town centre, Brockwell Park (lauded as London's best outdoor space by locals with its amazing lido among its myriad attractions) on your doorstep and a large Sainsbury’s within a couple of minute’s walk. Early viewings are recommended. Freehold.

Brixton area highlights

Brixton is a melting pot of culture, cuisine and creativity. An explosion of inventive, new restaurants, pop-ups, fashion stores and art galleries sit alongside the many great pubs, music venues and nightclubs that have been around for years. Transport links are excellent, with London Underground (Victoria Line) trains reaching central London in 12 minutes. If you’re craving green space, Brockwell Park and its famed Art Deco lido are close by. Brixton brings together all the best things about London and is one of the most vibrant and diverse places to live south of the river.
