Property details

Set 80 feet back from the road with an unusually long front garden, with 1768 square feet of living space over three floors, this appealing four double bedroom Victorian terraced house will attract many potential purchasers due to the levels of seclusion in such a central location. Ideal as a family home, it is rare to find the character, dimensions and location that this charming house has to offer, not to mention the leafy and private south-west facing garden.

On entering the property, the Victorian character rings true with original tiled flooring and high, corniced ceilings. The ground floor comprises a spacious dual-aspect reception room, complete with a large bay window, handsome feature fireplaces and garden access. Towards the rear of this floor, an attractive eat-in kitchen with plenty of space for a large dining table, a fully equipped contemporary kitchen and a desirable breakfast bar. The kitchen also leads out to the mature and sunny outside space, in which the new purchaser can enjoy the sun into the later hours of the day.

Arranged over the first and second floors of the house, four generously sized double bedrooms, one of which spans the entire width of the house, whilst the others are all peacefully located overlooking the gardens at the rear. Both upper floors have their own contemporary bathrooms. This blank canvas presents a very unusual opportunity to stamp your own mark on a very exclusive spot close to the heart of Brixton, houses of this size, with this much outside space and within the Helix Gardens area are very rare to market.

Helix Gardens and Josephine Avenue have a real sense of community, with a residents’ association and a yearly art fair, situated a ten-minute stroll to the centre 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. Purchasers have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance and they include F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub. This characterful house is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action but would prefer to retain a sense of calm. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is just a ten-minute walk away. The property benefits from all that Brixton offers, from the celebrated cuisine in Brixton Village and POP Brixton to the music venues and nightlife the area is famous for. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, secluded country feel, size, outside space, storage and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer - we really like it. Chain-free.

Brixton area highlights

Brixton is a melting pot of culture, cuisine and creativity. An explosion of inventive, new restaurants, pop-ups, fashion stores and art galleries sit alongside the many great pubs, music venues and nightclubs that have been around for years. Transport links are excellent, with London Underground (Victoria Line) trains reaching central London in 12 minutes. If you’re craving green space, Brockwell Park and its famed Art Deco lido are close by. Brixton brings together all the best things about London and is one of the most vibrant and diverse places to live south of the river.
