The property is a blank canvas, perfect for anyone looking to move in hassle-free and then stamp their own mark over time. True period character rings out from many of the handsome rooms in this beautiful house. Exposed wood floors, high corniced ceilings and stunning feature fireplaces all contribute to the grandeur such a property represents. Arranged over four floors, the ground floor comprises double reception rooms at the front, a smaller room adjacent that would be ideal as a home office or a cloakroom and a large open-plan living space at the rear. The kitchen is generous, offering space for both integrated and freestanding appliances, an abundance of storage and modern finishes. There is plenty of room for a large dining table and chairs as well as a cosy reception area, nestled towards the end of the room, opening out onto a lovely private secluded partly grassed garden. Ideal for entertaining, the attractive outside space flows freely into the open-plan living space, creating a lovely atmosphere throughout. As demonstrated by the current owners, having so much space provides many more options and each room can be repurposed to suit the needs of the purchaser.

Arranged over the first and second floors of this characterful house, are four very comfortable double bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each room is attractive in its own right, high ceilings and large sash windows supplement the spacious, airy, feel throughout; whilst flooding the rooms with natural light. One of the key selling points of this home is the sheer size and flexibility the layout offers. The loft has been converted and currently is used as a reception room. This grand space could be an ideal principal bedroom. An abundant room with multiple windows that could provide a truly tranquil feel where one can relax and unwind. This final room is further complimented by an en-suite bathroom.

Hayter Road is a quiet and peaceful residential street, a particularly sought-after road, located just off vibrant and trendy Brixton Hill, a ten-minute walk to the centre of Brixton and all that this area has to offer. Brixton Village and POP Brixton are close-by, boasting food and entertainment from all over the world. Purchasers also have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub. The first stop on the Victoria line (arguably London's favourite underground line) is reachable in under 10 minutes by foot. Making this area ideal for anyone looking to commute into the city. In contrast, the award winning Brockwell Park, with its green open spaces and iconic 1930 lido, are close by. Providing an ideal escape from city life. Alongside Brockwell Park, everything leafy Herne Hill has to offer is easily accessible including the outdoor space and velodrome and farmer’s market with village-like charm. The new owners will also benefit from everything that Clapham has to offer. Within an eleven-minute stroll the multitude of restaurants and bars and excellent transport links with the Overground at Clapham High Street station and two Northern Line underground stations: Clapham Common and Clapham North.
