Property details

Originally built in the 1850s, this imposing property is steeped in local history, first opened as Brixton Girls’ Orphanage in the late 1800s before being acquired by the Brixton School of Building, and was finally converted into luxury apartments in 1997. This characterful development has been recently renovated externally and has a lovely period façade. Once inside there are beautifully manicured shared gardens with a fish pond, the communal areas are well maintained and there is secure bike storage. This particular maisonette also benefits from an allocated off-street gated parking space, as well as an unrivalled location: just a stone’s throw from Brixton tube station (Victoria Line), as well as the restaurants, bars and cafes that make up the culinary Mecca on vibrant Atlantic Road and Coldharbour Lane. With both Brixton Village and Pop Brixton also on the doorstep, purchasers will be able to sample a different cuisine every night of the week. The beautiful greenery of Brockwell Park and its 1930s Lido are also within walking distance.

This spacious apartment is split over two floors and offers generous proportions throughout. Large floor to ceiling sash windows, with characterful sash windows allow an abundance of natural light, creating a bright and airy atmosphere throughout. The property is a blank canvas, neutrally finished and perfect for anyone who wants to move in hassle-free and stamp their own mark on a property over time. On the raised ground floor of the property, the separate reception room provides ample space in which to relax, dine and entertain, whilst the contemporary kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need in terms of mod cons and storage space. This maisonette was previously a buy to let investment and configured as a four bedroom apartment with enough space to use the kitchen as an open-plan kitchen and reception. The property is ideal for a wide range of purchasers as the layout can be altered to accommodate various requirements.

On the floor below of this striking double fronted Victorian house, the property has three bedrooms and a modern bathroom. Two of the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable double rooms, benefitting from large fitted wardrobes. As the property is so flexible, the third and still adequately sized bedroom could easily be rented out, repurposed as a study, guest bedroom or nursery. This makes the property an attractive proposition for anyone looking to rent out a bedroom or share with friends.

This characterful split-level apartment boasts nearly 1000 square feet of internal living space, with the luxury of multiple floors, the property feels like a home. Early registration of interest is highly advised.

Chain free.
