Property details

A larger than average two-bedroom, two-bathroom flat, complete with a fantastic private roof terrace, close to the action in thriving Brixton. Canterbury Crescent is a five-minute walk to Brixton’s popular hangouts; Pop Brixton, Market Row and Brixton Village where there are endless options of fine dining, bistro and street food. Local chefs include winners of ‘Master Chef’ and ‘Million Pound Menu’.

This beautifully presented apartment, nestled securely on the top floor of an attractive Victorian mansion block, comprises a good size, semi-open plan reception room, with large bay sash windows flooding the room with natural light, perfect for relaxing and entertaining guests. Adjacent is the stylish eat-in kitchen with integrated appliances. Two well-proportioned double bedrooms are located at the back of the building, the master bedroom has a tastefully finished en-suite bathroom and it is evident that the entire flat has been well-cared for by the current owners. The flat further offers a remarkable amount of storage, efficiently utilising the extra space within the eaves and loft, perfect for all of the clutter that purchasers will accumulate over time.

The roof terrace adds an appeal to this flat that many others in the building cannot offer. South-West facing means the space is a sun-trap into the later hours of the day and absolutely perfect for entertaining guests or enjoying an evening drink as the sun sinks away into the distance. The current owners have transformed the space into a professionally landscaped haven, tucked away quietly overlooking the surrounding area from a private and peaceful position.

The entire block was renovated with high-quality workmanship 15 years ago, installing new double glazing and sound insulating all the flats, meaning low energy costs and no disturbing neighbours if you want to have a dinner party. The flat has handy access to a lift and has almost 800 square feet of internal living space that will appeal to a wide range of potential purchasers. The transport links are second to none, with only a five-minute walk to Brixton underground station, the first stop of the Victoria Line with a short commute to the city. The property is a 30-second walk from multiple bus stops taking you all across London. The location is ideal with the green, open spaces of Wyck Gardens within a ten-minute walk, with 31 acres of beautiful park which hosts; horse stables and riding club, kids play area, urban cricket pitch, football pitches and a community garden. In the other direction, you are a stroll away from the award-winning Brockwell Park, one of South London’s most popular parks. Brixton Recreation Centre is a minute walk away with a gym, squash courts and indoor bowling to name a few, there is something for everyone.
