There’s something for everyone in Clapham and it draws an eclectic crowd. Clapham Common buzzes with activity and there’s a diverse mix of restaurants, shops, independent boutiques and nightlife, along with some wonderful architecture. The local schools are excellent and the transport options plentiful, with three London Underground (Northern Line) stations in close proximity and frequent London Overground trains from Clapham High Street station. 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.Clapham area guide

This well presented two double bedroom garden flat resides on the ideally located and aesthetically pleasing Ferndale Road. A five minute walk from Clapham and a ten minute walk to the centre of Brixton mean this flat will appeal to purchasers looking to move to both areas.
Two nicely sized double bedrooms share a sleek, modern bathroom. The larger of the two benefits from a characterful, large bay window that allows an abundance of light to flood the room. The rear bedroom is tucked away peacefully overlooking the garden and the bathroom located between the bedrooms provides a desirable level of privacy.
A smart and well-proportioned kitchen, providing ample storage options and surface space as well as room to dine, is followed by an airy, bright reception room that opens out onto the attractive private garden. This low-maintenance sun trap benefits from not being over looked, making it the ideal spot to enjoy the warmer months in peace. There is the added benefit of a cellar, currently providing a convenient utility area.
Within a five-minute stroll down the road, you will reach the vibrant and diverse Clapham High Street offering cracking nightlife and culinary delights. The cafes and boutique stores in Clapham Old Town and Abbeville Village are within reach and the green open spaces of Clapham Common are easily accessible for the new purchaser.
In the other direction, you will have everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the extremely popular Brixton Village, to large brand-shops and the incredibly popular Brockwell Park with its iconic lido. Potential purchasers will benefit from fantastic transport links which include access to the Northern Line (Clapham North and Clapham Common tube stations), the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station), the overground service at Clapham High Street Station and Brixton Station, plus multiple buses running into central London. The bars, restaurants and supermarkets on Acre Lane are also a short stroll away. The property will sell quickly and early registration of interest is highly recommended.
