Property details

A beautifully presented two double bedroom apartment with a private balcony and a distinctive loft feel. The apartment benefits from a top floor position within a popular art deco residential block on the centrally-located Effra Road.

The reception room is exceptionally spacious and boasts a huge Crittal-style window, which floods the room with daylight. The modern kitchen is tasteful, provides plenty of storage and has the added luxury of integrated appliances.

The master bedroom displays the same Crittal-style windows and matching doors that open out onto the private balcony, which offers far reaching views across the city. The second bedroom is of a fair size and both come with built-in storage. The apartment is completed by a three-piece bathroom, including a characterful free standing roll-top bath.

This fantastic flat has been stylishly renovated by its art-loving owner, who has injected a thoroughly contemporary aesthetic whilst accentuating the characterful and well-maintained original features like the exposed floorboards and the original doors and handles. It offers multiple advantages such as the privacy attributed to being at the top floor, use of a brand new lift, a readily available care-taker and a close-knit neighbourhood community feel.

This flat has a homely atmosphere, ideal for anyone looking to move into their new home hassle-free. The location is ideal, positioned 2 minutes’ walk away from a large supermarket and a number of acclaimed independent cafes and restaurants on Brixton Water Lane, whilst only a three-minute walk from Brockwell Park, one of the finest in London. The property benefits from all that Brixton offers within a ten-minute stroll, from the celebrated cuisine of Brixton Village to the music venues and nightlife the area is famous for. The restaurants, cafes and the French market in Herne Hill are all within easy reach, a pleasant fifteen-minute walk through Brockwell Park. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, secluded quiet location, access to outside space and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer.
