Property details

A rare opportunity to purchase a one of a kind two double bedroom, split-level apartment, set within a handsome Victorian school conversion on a leafy residential road, located in-between Clapham and Brixton High Streets.

This beautifully presented apartment is split over the third and fourth floor, offering over 1000 square feet of internal living space and packed full of character. Large sash windows flood the eat-in kitchen with natural light, a fantastic entertaining space with plenty of room to cook and dine with a large table and socialise comfortably. Also nestled on this floor, one of the two bedrooms and a sleek, modern en-suite bathroom as well as a useful separate utility room.

On the upper floor, a spacious reception room, equal in size to the kitchen diner below. Characterful beams and a mezzanine floor add to the glory of this special apartment, providing a flexible space that could be repurposed to suit the buyer’s needs. The reception room provides access to a shared outside area (non-demised and shared with one other apartment), the perfect South-facing spot to soak up some sun during the warmer months and the double doors allow airflow into bright and airy reception. The second bedroom also resides on this floor, offering ample built-in storage and a peaceful location. The mezzanine level offers fantastic flexibility and the current owners have it set up as a home office overlooking the reception area. The property is completed by a tastefully tiled, sleek bathroom.

This property is a truly unique offering for anyone seeking their own private haven, away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to both Brixton and Clapham to enjoy all the benefits that these in demand areas have to offer. The cafes, bars and restaurants of Brixton are all within walking distance, with Brixton Village, POP Brixton, The Ritzy cinema and the legendary Brixton Academy all at your fingertips. A short walk in the other direction takes you to Clapham High Street offering vibrant nightlife and culinary delights and the charming Abbeville Village. The purchaser will benefit from the Northern Line (Clapham North and Clapham Common tube stations), the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station) and the buses of Brixton Hill which arrive every few minutes whisking you down to central Brixton and beyond.

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.
