Property details

Nestled on the first floor of this popular period mansion block, this two bedroom apartment will tick boxes for a wide range of purchasers. The property is well-presented by the current owner with a tasteful and neutral style throughout.

The two double bedrooms are similar in size, making this bright and airy flat an ideal option for those hoping to rent out a spare room or indeed for anyone who works from home. The master bedroom also has access onto a private balcony – a peaceful spot in which to relax, offering views over the attractive and sleepy street below, and the bedrooms share a sleek, contemporary bathroom.

The living space is fantastic – a large reception room at the front of the property is flooded with natural light thanks to an attractive bay window, whilst a working fireplace and bespoke shelving provide plenty of character. To the rear of the flat is the recently fitted kitchen, boasting integrated appliances and all you may need in terms of storage and worktop space. From here there is also direct access onto a second private balcony.

There are local amenities within a few minutes’ walk and there are a selection of pubs, bars, restaurants and supermarkets on Brixton Hill and Effra Road. It is also a short stroll to the Green Flag awarded Brockwell Park, with its rolling greenery, iconic 1930s Lido and excellent sports facilities. Brixton tube station is a fifteen-minute stroll and there is a bus stop within a stone’s throw, with numerous buses that run all day and night, taking no more than a couple of minutes down Brixton Hill.

Clapham High Street and Abbeville Village are also a similar distance, offering excellent transport links with three Northern Line underground stations, Clapham High Street station on the Overground and numerous bus routes to other areas of London. Venn Street and its multitude of restaurants and bars, the green open spaces of Clapham Common are all within walking distance.
