Property details

An exciting opportunity to stamp your own mark on a highly popular road situated in Herne Hill, on the ever popular Fawnbrake Road. This semi-detached four double bedroom period townhouse benefits from plenty of outside space with a lovely south-east facing position.

A large double-fronted reception room occupies the front of the building, following on is a contemporary kitchen with garden access, a WC, plus a second and considerably spacious reception room, opening out onto a conservatory. The house still displays some of the endearing Victorian characteristics that are popular with buyers such as high corniced ceilings, multiple bay windows and feature fireplaces. The property measures up at an impressive 1850 square feet, and offers the opportunity to extend (STPP), which would increase the overall square footage and value of this period house.

On the first floor, four nicely sized double bedrooms, one of which spans the entire width of the house, and a family bathroom with a separate WC. With this much space on offer, a purchaser will be able to repurpose rooms to suit their own needs, creating a home that is tailored entirely to their style and requirements.

This house also offers a basement, ideal for storage and could possibly be repurposed as a handy utility room. The large south-east facing garden is a sun trap, the perfect spot to host in the summer or relax in your own private outside space. There is direct garden access to the side which is also very handy for anyone who is a keen gardener or any dog walkers to avoid mess through the house after a trip to the lauded Brockwell Park.

Herne Hill station is less than a 10-minute walk and Brixton tube station is a similar stroll in the other direction. Victoria is accessible within sixteen minutes, Blackfriars is twenty minutes, London Bridge is twenty-four minutes and Canary Wharf is within thirty-seven minutes, door to door. The celebrated Herne Hill establishments are close-by and the restaurants and shops within the lauded Brixton Village, the amenities of the high street and the market are within easy reach. The open spaces of the Green Flag award-winning Brockwell Park are also very close by, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and sports facilities. With Brockwell Park, Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants and Brixton Village all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all tastes. Ruskin Park is also within 10 minutes.
