Property details

This ideally situated, split-level, two double bedroom apartment brings an exciting opportunity to stamp your own mark in the highly sought after residential pocket that sits equidistant from central Brixton and Clapham High Street.

The property has been recently decorated throughout and well-maintained. Both bedrooms are large doubles of a similar size, one of which resides on the ground floor overlooking the private garden, the second on the first floor next to a modern family bathroom. This is ideal for anyone looking to rent out a spare room or share with friends as the split level provides coveted privacy that isn’t provided in many Victorian conversions of a similar size.

A handsome reception room occupies the front of the property, with plenty of space to dine, entertain or unwind, with a large bay window, generously feeding the large room with natural light, whilst overlooking the sleepy residential street on which this property resides.

There is also a contemporary, integrated kitchen on the ground floor which opens out to the charming private garden, the ideal low-maintenance space for any green-thumbed purchasers, or those who just wish to have their own private spot to enjoy the outdoors.

This handsome Victorian terrace is nestled within a popular pocket of SW2, sandwiched between Brixton and Clapham. The cafes, bars and restaurants of up-and-coming Acre Lane are at the end of the road, with local heroes such as Boqueria Tapas, The Beast of Brixton, and Aries Bakehouse, to name a few, all on the doorstep. Within a further few minutes’ walk down the road, purchasers will find themselves in the heart of Brixton, with Brixton Village, POP Brixton, The Ritzy cinema and the legendary music venues, Brixton Academy and Brixton Electric, all at their fingertips. In the other direction, is vibrant and bustling Clapham High Street offering cracking nightlife, culinary delights and the green open spaces of Clapham Common. A short 10-minute stroll brings you to Abbeville Village with an abundance of local shops including The Ginger Pig butchers, MacFarlanes Dairy and the charming pub, The Abbeville. Potential purchasers will benefit from the Northern Line (Clapham North and Clapham Common tube stations) and the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station).

Chain-free.

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.
