Property details

This elegant two double bedroom split-level occupies the upper floors of one of the handsome Victorian terraces on Leander Road, a popular residential street, perfectly located for the amenities and transport links in central Brixton, yet far enough away to retain a sense of calm. This beautifully airy apartment is well-presented and feels like a home as soon as you walk through the door.

To the front of the flat is a smart reception room, tastefully finished and packed full of character, including a charming bay window, a feature fireplace and high ceilings. Adjacent is one of the two spacious double bedrooms. The second bedroom is equally spacious, overlooking the peaceful gardens to the rear. A conveniently located WC also resides on this floor and creates a desirable level of privacy between the two bedrooms.

On the upper floor, a spacious eat-in kitchen and a contemporary bathroom complete the property. The kitchen provides everything required in terms of generous storage space, mod-cons and surface area, as well as enough room for a dining table. On this floor you will also find a generous loft space, in which there is the potential to extend the overall footage and value of the flat (subject to necessary permissions).

Leander Road is a short walk to the centre of Brixton, whilst a large supermarket and various cafes, pubs and restaurants, such as Brockwell Blend, Maremma and Naughty Piglets are also right on your doorstep. The green, open spaces of Brockwell Park are also a stone’s throw away, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and fantastic sports facilities. The amenities in Herne Hill are a pleasant stroll through Brockwell Park and the property will appeal to purchasers considering moving to both areas.

There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, layout, outside space, and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer.

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.
