Property details

A beautifully presented ground floor flat offering an incredible private garden and fantastic dimensions throughout. Situated in the heart of the ever-popular Josephine Conservation area, a quiet and leafy network of similarly attractive Victorian terraced roads.

There is a modern, tasteful and well-equipped eat-in kitchen tucked away at the back of the property, providing the perfect space to entertain and dine. The property also offers some fantastic development potential - the space could be further extended into the side return, subject to the necessary permissions. The kitchen opens out into the peaceful and well-maintained private garden, ideal for relaxing or entertaining during the warmer months. This large outside space is complete with a decked area, ideal for dining. The reception is handsome, bright and characterful with a large bay window, stunning ceiling cornicing and a feature fireplace.

The bedroom sits behind the reception room, peacefully tucked away towards the back of the house – a generous double room, also with direct garden access that allows the room to be flooded with fresh air and natural light, creating a truly tranquil environment. The flat is served by a modern and stylishly tiled bathroom. This property is in great condition, has been lovingly cared for by the current owners and offers consistently appealing décor.

The property, with its excellent living space and much sought-after garden space, is a perfect home, nestled in a leafy part of vibrant and thriving Brixton, on tree-lined Helix Road. Situated a ten-twelve minute stroll to all that central Brixton has to offer, purchasers also have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub. This exquisite flat is ideal for anyone who wants to be close to the action while maintaining a sense of calm. The new owner will have the best of both worlds with everything on offer in the hustle and bustle of central Brixton, yet able to retire to the quieter village-like community that has been developed around Brixton Hill. First stop on the Victoria Line, Brixton tube station is a stroll down the hill, whisking you into central London and the City within a few minutes. The buses also offer a great alternative to the tube and train stations, with a bus stop at the end of the road, a stone’s throw from this residential road. The location is ideal with the green, open spaces of Brockwell Park within a five-minute walk. A pleasant fifteen-minute saunter across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes, restaurants and Sunday market of leafy Herne Hill. The village-feel continues with easy access to Dulwich Village, East Dulwich and trendy Peckham, catering for the wants and needs of the majority of potential purchasers. Chain-free.
