Property details

A beautifully presented two double bedroom purpose-built Victorian garden flat with private entrance, perfectly located on this popular residential road between Brixton and Clapham. The two double bedrooms to the front of the property are both spacious and similar in size, ideal for anyone hoping to rent out a bedroom or indeed for working from home. Both rooms benefit from plenty of natural light and original features.

Down the hallway is the well-proportioned, open-plan reception room. The kitchen is well-designed with all you need in terms of mod cons and storage, with plenty of space for a dining table, as well as ample room in which to relax or entertain. To the rear of the property is the brand new contemporary bathroom which has been finished to an excellent standard.

With access to private outside space more important than ever, the icing on the cake is the spacious South-West facing private garden. Fully renovated by the current owners, it is a lovely sun-trap and the ideal spot in which to relax, complete with a stylish pergola canopy and a tranquil paved terrace lined by olives trees and palms.

The layout is flexible and can be tailored to the new purchasers’ requirements. The front bedroom is currently set up as a second reception room with a large eat-in kitchen diner at the rear of the flat. The layout could be tweaked to utilise the front room as the second double bedroom, with an open-plan reception room at the rear of the property opening onto the private garden via the French doors.

This property is a truly unique offering for anyone seeking their own private haven, away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to both Brixton and Clapham to enjoy all the benefits that these in demand areas have to offer. This peaceful property is nestled in a popular pocket of SW2, sandwiched between Brixton and Clapham. The cafes, bars and restaurants of Brixton are all within walking distance, with Brixton Village, POP Brixton, the Ritzy cinema and the legendary Brixton Academy all at your fingertips. A short walk in the other direction takes you to Clapham High Street offering vibrant nightlife and culinary delights and the charming Abbeville Village. The purchaser will benefit from the Northern Line (Clapham North and Clapham Common tube stations), the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station) and the buses of Brixton Hill which arrive every few minutes whisking you down to central Brixton and beyond.
