Property details

This modern and unique three double bedroom Victorian terrace house on Hargwyne Street has been innovatively remodelled by local Brixton architect Variant Office. The property really is something special, with over 1,300 square feet of internal living space, maximising the square footage with a fully open plan ground floor. It's in an unrivalled location, perfectly sandwiched between amenities in Brixton, Clapham and Stockwell. This contemporary house will appeal to purchasers who are contemplating moving to any of these sought-after locations; with a varied array of nightlife, restaurants, shops and transport links on the doorstep.

The property has been lovingly cared for and boldly refurbished with a light and airy mix of sleek, modern finishes. The ground floor stretches out as one seamless room, running the width and length of the house - a beautiful open-plan kitchen leads down to the dining and reception room, that looks out and opens directly onto the private back garden through a 2.2m wide glass cantilevered door. Along with 2 large skylights, this floods the open-plan space with natural light. The large kitchen has a stylish and modern dark finish, centered around a generous island with plenty of room to cook and entertain. The dining area provides a comfortable space with enough room for a large table and the reception is nestled peacefully looking out onto the garden. There is a WC and separate laundry room tucked away discreetly on this floor.

There are three generous bedrooms and a family bathroom upstairs. The spacious master bedroom at the front of the house is flooded with natural light thanks to the large south-west facing bay window. Two further well-proportioned doubles sit towards the back of the house, overlooking the garden below and separated by a modern family bathroom. The space is easily repurposed to suit the needs of the purchaser, as demonstrated by the current owners who are using the third bedroom as a spacious home office.

If the impressive square footage on offer isn’t quite enough, there's potential to extend into the loft under permitted development, adding a further bedroom and bathroom. This would increase the footprint and consequently the overall value of the house.

The overall space is truly unique, with a contemporary design, plenty of interesting features and automated home additions including smart controls for the central heating, electric blinds and skylights as well as inbuilt speakers in the kitchen and bathroom. There is underfloor heating across the entire ground floor and the bathroom and plenty of storage throughout.

With a comfortable square footage, three spacious double bedrooms which are similar in size and a secluded garden to match, it is hard to remind yourself that you are indeed still in the heart of Brixton, located on a sought-after, quiet, residential street.

This unique and beautiful home is situated a short stroll from The Ritzy and the excellent array of shops and restaurants in Brixton Village. The location will be perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action, yet retain a sense of calm: this quiet street feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of Brixton town centre. As far as locations go, it doesn’t get much more central, Brixton station is just a five minute’s walk, first stop on the Victoria Line, arguably the best line on the London Underground for fast links into central London and beyond. The restaurants, nightlife and shopping that have made Brixton so popular are all on the doorstep, making this property an ideal purchase for anyone looking to be as close as possible to the amenities on offer. Clapham High Street and Stockwell are both within a ten-minute stroll with access to the Northern Line and the Overground, covering the wants and needs of the majority of purchasers. Freehold and registration of interest strongly advised.
