Property details

A charming one double bedroom apartment securely nestled on the first floor of the old caretaker’s cottage of Thorncliffe Court, ideally located for easy access to both Brixton and Clapham centres. The unique character of this flat is as endearing as the Art Deco building protecting it from the main road, considerably set back within the beautifully manicured gardens of this popular 1930's mansion block.

Unlike a lot of similar conversions, the majority of the total square footage is useable living space and well-designed storage, as opposed to being distributed within unnecessary hallways. The open-plan kitchen and reception room is perfectly formed with bespoke storage, room to dine and relax as well as entertain. The kitchen is fully integrated and the flat has multiple south-facing windows, allowing for an abundance of natural light to flood the property all day long. There is a perfect work from home area with a built-in fold down desk and shelving. Thoughtful design and well-appointed storage are a running theme throughout this property and the bedroom is certainly no exception, overlooking the idyllic communal gardens. There is a contemporary, fully equipped bathroom that completes the property. A fantastic blank canvas, ready for a purchaser to move in hassle-free and add their own touch over time.

Thorncliffe Court residents have access to beautifully maintained, tranquil communal gardens and a bike store. This double glazed property is set back quietly from Kings Avenue and has all the benefits of the transport links without being affected by the road. Kings Avenue is a similar distance to both Clapham and Brixton High Streets, a fourteen-minute walk to be precise, so potential purchasers will benefit from the amenities and transport links local to both areas. There are multiple buses that run up and down Kings Avenue that will whisk you to the tube stations in Clapham and Brixton within minutes. With Abbeville Village and Brixton Village close-by, there are amenities that will appeal to the majority of purchasers, while all the time feeling like you are a million miles away from the noise and glare of the big city. Chain free.

Clapham area highlights

There’s something for everyone in Clapham and it draws an eclectic crowd. Clapham Common sits at its centre and is always buzzing with activity. There’s a diverse mix of restaurants, shops, independent boutiques and nightlife, along with some wonderful architecture. It rarely feels overcrowded here, despite the abundance of things to do, and Clapham endures as one of the most desirable places to live in south London. The local schools are excellent and the transport options second to none, with three London Underground (Northern Line) stations in close proximity and frequent London Overground trains from Clapham High Street station.
