Property details

A truly charming detached Victorian cottage, with two double bedrooms as well as two bathrooms and two pretty outside spaces. Set back from the sleepy, gated mews in which this property resides, this elegant cottage is a real gem that should not be missed.

As you enter the property you are welcomed by a spacious and airy open plan reception and dining room. This stylish, dual-aspect living area is naturally bright and full of charming Victorian character, boasting two beautiful original fireplaces, large sash windows and built in shelves with cupboards below. The room feeds through to a recently fitted, shaker-style kitchen that opens out onto a charming patio garden, boasting a fantastic garden studio, perfect for use as a fully-functioning home office. A modern, sleek family bathroom completes the rooms on the ground floor.

The characterful exposed staircase, which separates the open-plan room, leads up to two ample double bedrooms, one with a luxurious three piece en-suite and the other, overlooking the generous, private front garden with stepping stones leading to the front door.

A truly gorgeous property in an area popular for its proximity with Brixton to the North, Streatham Hill to the South and Clapham/Balham to the West. Tucked away in its own small mews development, just off Brixton Hill, the cottage is perfectly located for anyone wanting to be close to the action, yet far enough away to retain a sense of calm. Within an easy walking distance is Brockwell Park, which many local residents champion as London's best green space. Brixton tube station is a short walk down the hill and to all the fun of Brixton's vast array of restaurants, cafes and dynamic nightlife. Tulse Hill station with rail links including to London Bridge is a similar distance away. Situated between Brixton Hill and Streatham Hill, the property has access to the extensive bus network on Brixton Hill which is just a minutes’ walk away, with multiple buses ready to whisk you down the hill and into central London and beyond.
