A wonderfully bright and well-proportioned two double bedroom flat, securely nestled on the ground floor of a Victorian terraced property offering a quiet and quaint feel. The flat benefits from excellent dimensions – the majority of the square footage is usable living space, as opposed to being distributed within larger internal hallways.
The bright open-plan reception room is packed full of character with ample room to relax, dine and entertain: this room will be used on a regular basis. The kitchen has plenty of storage space with all you need in terms of mod cons and lovely views out over the garden. Access to private outside space is more important than ever and this property has a larger than average, lovely private garden at the rear. The two double bedrooms are both a good size, one overlooking the leafy road and Brockwell Park, whilst the other is tucked away to the rear of the property. The two comfortable double bedrooms share a modern neutral bathroom and as the two double rooms are similar in size, the apartment is ideal for anyone looking to rent out a bedroom or share with friends.
The flat has generous windows and good dimensions, which add to the light and airy atmosphere in the property, whilst wooden flooring and charming bay windows create a characterful feel throughout. A real blank canvas, the apartment is ready for purchasers to move into hassle free and add their own touch over time.
The property is conveniently located a short stroll from the vast spaces of Brockwell Park and its 1930s Lido. The pubs and restaurants in Herne Hill, the Sunday market, and the train station are all on your doorstep. In the other direction, you have all the amenities on offer in Tulse Hill with fantastic transport links into central London. Herne Hill and Tulse Hill stations allow access to Victoria, Canary Wharf, London Bridge and The City, all within forty minutes door to door. Last but not least, the restaurants and shops within the lauded Brixton Village, Brixton High Street and Brixton Station are all within walking distance. Having an entrance to Brockwell Park within touching distance is really appealing, and early registration of interest is advised.
