Property details

A sizeable and unique two double bedroom apartment, arranged over the second and third floor of a handsome Victorian school conversion, close to the heart of Brixton. Originally built in the 1850s, this imposing property is steeped in local history, first opened as Brixton Girls’ Orphanage in the late 1800s before being acquired by the Brixton School of Building, and was finally converted into luxury apartments in 1997. This characterful development has been recently renovated externally and has a lovely period facade. Once inside there are beautifully manicured shared gardens with a fish pond, the communal areas are well maintained, plus parking and secure bike storage.

Spanning almost 1100 square feet and split over two levels, this lovely apartment truly feels like a home from the moment you walk through the door. The bedrooms are well-appointed doubles and pretty equal in size, one with considerable built-in storage. They share a fully-equipped and beautifully finished bathroom and the rooms are set on opposite sides of the property, benefitting from quiet and privacy. The contemporary kitchen is a fantastic space with a double-height ceiling thanks to the mezzanine level and a grand sash window that reaches all the way to the upper floor, flooding the entire room with light and creating a lovely atmosphere within (all of the windows have been recently refurbished). The kitchen itself is fantastic cooking space, complete with a range cooker and plenty of storage, plus room to dine.

The upper floor of this property comprises a large open-plan space, one side currently occupied as a cosy reception and the other; a formal dining area. The mezzanine creates a lovely unison between all of the living spaces whilst still benefitting from an abundance of room and a degree of separation. The property displays an endearing level of character and charm that is truly hard to find elsewhere, from the imposingly large windows and the mezzanine to the charming wood beams that run across the ceiling.

Between the secure and beautiful surroundings, the period charm and the unique character of this unusually large two-bed, this property will tick boxes for a wide range of purchasers. The property further benefits from an unrivalled location: just a stone’s throw from Brixton tube station (Victoria Line), as well as the restaurants, bars and cafes that make up the culinary Mecca of vibrant Atlantic Road and Coldharbour Lane. With both Brixton Village and Pop Brixton also on the doorstep, purchasers will be able to sample a different cuisine every night of the week. The beautiful greenery of Brockwell Park and its 1930s Lido are also within walking distance.

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.
