Property details

A beautifully presented and well-proportioned five bedroom, three bathroom Victorian terraced house on a desirable street, benefitting from a location that couldn’t get much better, with access to not just Clapham and Brixton but also the delights of Herne Hill and Brockwell Park are within easy reach.

Boasting an impressive 1644 square feet of internal living space, each corner of the property has been utilized impressively with high finishes and a luxurious yet comfortable feel throughout. The current owners have lovingly restored some of the original characteristics, breathing life back into the house. The ground floor comprises an impressive dual-aspect reception room with a large brightening bay window and plenty of space to relax, dine and entertain.

The un-extended kitchen is a naturally large space, bright and airy with French doors providing access to the garden and a modern finish throughout. There is an abundance of storage options and surface space plus the potential to extend into the side return, subject to the necessary permissions, this would increase the overall footprint and value of the property. The garden is an attractive, low-maintenance space with a west-facing angle, making it the perfect spot to soak up the sun into the later hours of the day.

On the first floor, three of the five genuine double rooms, one of which spans the entire width of the property and the other two peacefully tucked to the rear. A sleek, modern bathroom also resides on this floor. Just up the stairs, two further spacious bedrooms, an en-suite bathroom and a further shower room. Furthermore there is a cellar that offers more storage as well as acting as a utility room.

The overall condition of this house demonstrates a genuine attention to detail by the current owners and the purchaser will certainly benefit from the restoration of original wood floors, new integrated Miele appliances, air conditioning and refurbished garden alongside the general appeal of such an impressive house. The multitude of bedrooms provides flexibility in terms of requirements and the location is second to none. Perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action.

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
