Property details

A beautifully presented two double bedroom garden flat, occupying the ground floor of an attractive, double-fronted Victorian townhouse. This well-proportioned flat boasts high end finishes throughout, demonstrating a careful attention to detail by the current owner and resides on a peaceful and leafy road. Elm Park is perfectly positioned within close proximity to the wonderful greenery of Brockwell Park and central Brixton.

The flat, carefully devised by a live-in Architect, has been designed with modern living in mind and the new purchaser will benefit from the smart-home features that have been included. On entering the property, you are met by a bright and tastefully finished open-plan reception room. Dual-aspect light floods the room, thanks to the characterful bay window to the front and glass double doors to the rear, creating a wonderfully bright and airy feel throughout. The kitchen has been finished to a high specification and boasts a stunning marble worktop and splashback, stylish matt black tapware and high quality integrated appliances, not only creating the slickest of kitchens but also maximising on the space available. The kitchen leads out to a pretty and low-maintenance wrap-around patio garden, the ideal spot to enjoy the warmer months in privacy.

Both bedrooms, currently occupied by king-size beds, offer comfortable dimensions. The second of the two opening out onto the garden, the former offering views over the handsome Victorian terraced street and boasting an abundance of natural light. Maximising on space in clever and interesting ways is a running theme, in the second room the current owner has cleverly installed a fold-down bed and desk unit, demonstrating the flexibility of the space, at a time when home offices are more essential than ever. The bathroom is no exception, modern, stylish and finished with an attractive marble tiling. There is a decently sized cellar, fantastic for storage and conveniently plumbed to double up as a utility room.

Elm Park is situated a fifteen-minute stroll to the culinary and nightlife mecca of South London, Brixton, and five minutes to the green open spaces of Brockwell Park. A fifteen-minute walk across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes and restaurants of Herne Hill. Purchasers have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the ever-popular White Horse Pub, as well as a neighbourhood favourite, the Elm Park Tavern, just over the road. This elegant flat is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action but wants to retain a sense of calm. The first stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is a short stroll down the hill and multiple buses run up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes and through into central London. The buses offer a great alternative to the tube and train stations for commuters into central London, with buses coming and going every other minute.
