Property details

An exceptional example of a two double bedroom, two bathroom flat, arranged over the top floors of an attractive period property in the highly sought-after residential pocket; Holmewood Gardens. This peaceful and unique garden square provides easy access to Brixton, Streatham Hill, Clapham, Balham and Tulse Hill, whilst still remaining tucked away in its own quiet and leafy setting.

The flat itself displays an appealing mix of contemporary design and endearing characterful features that ring true to the Victorian period in which it was initially built. The reception room is a fantastic entertaining space, high corniced ceilings and a lovely bay window create a beautiful and spacious atmosphere throughout, finished off with an attractive feature fireplace. There is more than enough room to relax and unwind, host and dine. The kitchen follows on, a sleek and contemporary room that is stocked with integrated appliances, plus all the storage and surface space you could need.

On the upper floor, two comfortable doubles are separated by a spacious family bathroom. Both bedrooms offer decent dimensions. There is a further bathroom located on the initial floor of the property, located conveniently close to the entrance.

The property is perfectly located just off Brixton Hill, around a fifteen-minute walk or a five-minute bus ride to all that Brixton has to offer in terms of food and nightlife, and a ten-minute stroll to the green, open spaces of the award-winning Brockwell Park, its iconic Lido and unrivalled sports facilities. A pleasant strolll across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes and restaurants of leafy Herne Hill. Purchasers will have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub, whilst local favourites such as Le Daily Corner cafe and the Elm Park Tavern are on the doorstep. This wonderfully light and airy flat is ideal 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 a short stroll away as well as the multiple buses running up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few short minutes and on into central London, whilst the transport links and amenities of Tulse Hill and Herne Hill are also within easy reach, providing rail connections to London Bridge, Blackfriars and Farringdon in around 20 minutes.
