Property details

This lovely Victorian flat occupies the middle floor of one of the attractive houses in Poets’ Corner. Shakespeare Road is a quaint, tree-lined Victorian road sandwiched between similar roads in this sought-after residential pocket, adjacent to Brockwell Park, and equidistant to leafy Herne Hill and vibrant Brixton.

The property boasts a wonderfully bright, open plan reception room at the front of the house, flooded with natural light and complete with a brand new finish throughout and plenty of character. There is enough space for both relaxing and dining, whilst high ceilings provide a sense of space. The modern kitchen is tastefully designed and provides all you might need in terms of storage and worktop space. The bedroom is a well-proportioned double room, tucked away quietly at the rear of the property overlooking the neighbouring gardens below. The bathroom is modern, sleek and inviting. This is a beautiful and neutrally presented flat, perfect for anyone looking to move in straight away and stamp their own mark over time.

Shakespeare Road is situated in the heart of Poets’ Corner, a highly desirable residential pocket of roads between Herne Hill and Brixton. Herne Hill station is a six-minute walk and Brixton tube station is a ten-minute stroll. London Bridge is accessible in twenty-four minutes, Canary Wharf in thirty-seven minutes and Victoria within sixteen 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 Brixton Station are a ten-minute stroll. The green, open spaces of Brockwell Park are also at the end of the road, along with its fantastic 1930’s Lido.

With Brockwell Park, Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants and Brixton Village all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all potential purchasers. In short, a spacious apartment in an attractive period building in a popular street in a sought-after area, only a stone's throw from Herne Hill town centre but far enough away to retain a sleepy, neighbourhood feel.
