Property details

An exciting opportunity to stamp your own mark on a highly popular road in the heart of Poet’s Corner. This three double bedroom Victorian house sits at the end of a terrace, benefitting from plenty of outside space and a south-east facing garden.

A large reception room occupies the front of the building, following on is a spacious dining room that opens out onto the garden, a contemporary and spacious kitchen plus a fully equipped bathroom complete with a walk in shower and a bath.

Upstairs, three well-proportioned double bedrooms, one of which spans the entire width of the house. There is potential to extend not only into the loft but also from the ground floor into the garden, subject to the necessary permissions. This would increase the value and overall footprint of the house, and allow the new purchaser to create a home entirely built around their own needs and style.

It’s easy to see what makes Poets’ Corner such a desirable pocket: Herne Hill station is an eight-minute walk and Brixton tube station is a ten-minute stroll. Victoria is accessible within sixteen minutes, Blackfriars is twenty minutes, London Bridge is twenty-four minutes and Canary Wharf is within thirty-seven minutes, door to door. The celebrated Herne Hill establishments are close-by and the restaurants and shops within the lauded Brixton Village, the amenities of the high street and the market are within easy reach. The open spaces of the Green Flag award Brockwell Park are also at the end of the road, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and sports facilities. With Brockwell Park, Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants and Brixton Village all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all tastes.
