Property details

A charming example of a two double bedroom flat, occupying the middle floor of a handsome Victorian end-of-terrace house. Set back from leafy Josephine Avenue, the property is a short walk from local shops, Brockwell Park and the enormous variety of nightlife on offer in central Brixton. With three overground stations on different lines within easy reach, as well as the first stop on the Victoria line at Brixton tube station, the location cannot be overstated.

The flat comprises a bright and spacious open-plan living area, a modern kitchen complimented by sleek white cupboards opens out onto the reception, providing a functional and sociable space to relax and dine. The reception has high ceilings and the characterful bay window allows natural light to flood this glorious room.

The bedrooms reside towards the rear, both similar in size and the master bedroom has the advantage of opening out onto the private roof terrace, a perfect sunny spot to enjoy the warmer months. The flat is completed by a modern bathroom, fully equipped and stylishly tiled. The property has the added bonus of a demised parking space at the front of the building. As the property is end of terrace, the building is wider than normal, creating a comfortable second double bedroom, which means this larger than average middle floor apartment is perfect for a wide range of purchasers, from first-time buyers to buy-to-let investors or anyone looking for a conveniently located pied-à-terre.

Josephine Avenue has a real sense of community, with a residents’ association and a yearly art fair, situated a ten-minute stroll to the centre of Brixton and a five-minute stroll to the green open spaces of Brockwell Park. A pleasant fifteen-minute walk across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes and restaurants of Herne Hill. Purchasers have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance and they include F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub. This characterful first floor flat is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action but would prefer to retain a sense of calm. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is just a ten-minute walk away. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style to the quiet neighbourhood feel and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer - we really like it.

Brixton area highlights

Brixton is a melting pot of culture, cuisine and creativity. An explosion of inventive, new restaurants, pop-ups, fashion stores and art galleries sit alongside the many great pubs, music venues and nightclubs that have been around for years. Transport links are excellent, with London Underground (Victoria Line) trains reaching central London in 12 minutes. If you’re craving green space, Brockwell Park and its famed Art Deco lido are close by. Brixton brings together all the best things about London and is one of the most vibrant and diverse places to live south of the river.
