Property details

A beautifully presented and rare to market one bedroom garden flat, nestled peacefully amongst the charming properties of Helix Gardens. Offering over 700 square feet, a private South-facing garden and endearing character throughout. This extremely sought-after residential road is a ten-minute stroll from Brixton High Street and only a few minutes from Brockwell Park.

The property comprises a handsome reception room at the front of the building. Spacious and bursting with character, in keeping with the rest of the flat. High, embellished ceilings, a stunning feature fireplace and a large square bay window all contribute to the grand feeling of the property, which is fairly hard to come by for a one-bed. The bedroom follows on, peacefully located overlooking the garden at the rear. The bathroom is stylishly tiled with a tasteful finish. A large eat-in kitchen completes the flat, large enough to serve a family home and ideal for entertaining as it opens straight out onto the sunny and tranquil garden at the rear. A low-maintenance space with plenty of charm, the perfect spot to enjoy the warmer months within the privacy of your own home. The property also benefits from private off street parking.

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 garden flat 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 has a supermarket at either end of the road and the pubs, bars and restaurants of Brixton Hill and Effra Road are a five minute walk. 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.

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.
