Property details

A fantastic opportunity to extend and stamp your own mark on this attractive period terraced house set just off Brixton Hill. Blenheim Gardens is a quiet and peaceful residential street within a ten-minute walk to the centre of Brixton and all that the area has to offer. This blank canvas is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action, yet retain a sense of calm: this quiet residential street feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of Brixton town centre. The 200-year-old, Grade II listed, iconic tourist attraction, Brixton Windmill is also situated further down the road on Blenheim Gardens.

This chain-free home is a blank canvas, providing the perfect chance for a purchaser to use their inspiration to end up with a family home that completely reflects their own personal taste. With nearly 1300 square feet of living space, there is the opportunity to extend up into the loft or out into the side-return, subject to the usual permissions.

The ground floor comprises a reception room with a square bay window and the adjacent second reception room with direct access into the un-extended side return and through to a South facing private garden. The kitchen is tucked away at the back of the building with another additional access into the garden. On the first floor there are three comfortable double bedrooms with a smaller fourth bedroom and a bathroom with separate W.C. The house is packed full of character, a rare find, and a fantastic opportunity for purchasers who are looking to modernise a four-bedroom period house in a great location.

The property is around a seven-minute walk from what many local people claim as the best park in London, Brockwell Park. The cafés, restaurants and local pubs of Brixton Hill are on your doorstep, whilst two of Brixton’s most sought-after primary schools are also within a stone’s throw. The property benefits from all that Brixton offers, from the celebrated cuisine in Brixton Village to the music venues and nightlife the area is famous for and the first stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station, a ten minute walk away. A pleasant walk through the park leads to leafy Herne Hill within fifteen minutes and Clapham High Street is only seventeen minutes away by foot. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, secluded road, development potential and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer – this house will tick a lot of boxes for a wide range of purchasers.
