Property details

This stunning top floor apartment is a fantastic example of what can be done when one of these majestic townhouses and is refurbished with care and attention to detail. Set within unique Raleigh Gardens, a desirable and leafy residential road tucked away off Brixton Hill, the property benefits from a quiet setting as the entrance is a no-through road which only allows access to these particular houses. This lovely flat has been renovated to a high standard throughout and benefits from an abundance of natural light.

The current owners have really made the most of the charming rooms and the airy atmosphere within the property. The open-plan reception room at the front of the house is a charming room brimming with character, with views over the leafy, well-maintained front gardens. The modern kitchen is sleek and stylish, with trendy tiling and everything you might need in terms of appliances and storage. The two double bedrooms are separated, providing a desirable level of privacy and are both a good size, each benefitting from some bespoke built-in wardrobes and sharing a tasteful, modern bathroom.

Raleigh Gardens is highly sought-after for its proximity to all that the area is known for, situated a ten-minute stroll to the heart of Brixton and a five-minute stroll to the green open spaces of Brockwell Park. A pleasant fifteen-minute walk across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes and restaurants of Herne Hill. The popular establishments on Brixton Hill are within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and The White Horse Pub. This beautifully presented, top floor flat is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action but would prefer to retain a sense of calm. The first stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is just a ten-minute walk away. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the finish to the quiet, neighbourhood feel and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer.
