Property details

A bright and characterful one bedroom garden flat, occupying the ground floor of an attractive Victorian terraced on a popular residential road, ideally located for its proximity to both Brixton and Clapham.

This period property is tastefully finished and brimming with character. An abundance of endearing features including a bright bay window, an iron feature fireplace and ceiling cornicing to name a few, create a wonderful atmosphere throughout. The front of the property provides a spacious reception with high ceilings, ideal for relaxing and unwinding or entertaining guests with the open-plan feel (which can be closed off when desired with wooden doors) that leads right into the sociably sized kitchen. With plenty of storage and partially integrated appliances, this sleek white kitchen maximises on the square footage available, providing ample space to dine. French doors open out onto the un-extended side-return and through to the private garden at the rear, allowing natural light and fresh air to flood into the property. The bedroom is peacefully tucked away at the rear, conveniently located next to a modern bathroom and also provides access onto the low-maintenance secluded outside space.

The bars and restaurants of Acre Lane are a short walk and within an ten-minute stroll down the road is everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the extremely popular Brixton Village to large brand shops and cracking transport links, first stop on the Victoria tube line. Vibrant and diverse Clapham High Street is a similar distance in the other direction, offering great nightlife with the cafes and boutique shops within Abbeville Village, Venn Street and Clapham Old Town all close-by. Potential purchasers will benefit from both the Northern Line (Clapham North, Clapham Common and Clapham South tube stations) and the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station). Having a park within close proximity is more important than ever and this property has the advantage of two wonderful green open spaces within walking distance; Clapham Common and Brockwell Park with its iconic 1930s Lido are both within reach. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, size, 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.
