Property details

This appealing two double bedroom garden flat is arranged over the ground floor of a fantastic mock-Victorian development on the highly sought-after Josephine Avenue. Boasting over 700 square feet of internal space, direct access to both a private patio and communal gardens, plus the combination of Victorian character with the finish, spec and technology of a modern build means this property is sure to appeal to a wide range of purchasers.

A bright and airy open-plan reception is flooded with light through a characterful bay window, offering an abundance of space to relax and unwind, dine and cook. The kitchen is tucked away and resists the possibility of imposing on the living spaces, whilst still being a part of this ideal entertaining room. The kitchen itself is modern, thoroughly thought through to provide more than enough storage and surface space, and comes with high-end fully-integrated appliances.

Both bedrooms are peacefully tucked away at the rear of the building, overlooking the patio. The principal bedroom is particularly comfortable and opens out directly onto the patio area, meaning fresh air can breeze through the flat whilst the glass double doors drench the room in natural light. The second bedroom is still a well-proportioned double, could easily be rented out if desired or perhaps repurposed to suit the needs of the purchaser; it would make an excellent nursery or home office. A modern and well-kept bathroom provides a desirable level of privacy between the two bedrooms and completes the interior of the property.

Further benefits include a large, well-maintained, shared rear garden, secure bike storage and off-street parking (operating on a first-come, first-served basis). Nestled amongst Victorian terraces on the ever-popular, tree-lined Josephine Avenue, the property can only be recognised as a modern build by the higher level of detailing and crispness of its features within, with the shapes, lines, light and feel only available from the very best of contemporary building design. Located within Brixton’s most cherished conservation area, this apartment is a rare find: nestled within this perfectly designed, modern development, yet with all the charm and character of a Victorian property. The development, set back from Josephine Avenue was built around five years ago with tremendous attention to detail, mock-Victorian elegance and luxury, whilst being engineered to meet all the requirements of modern living.

With the rolling greenery of the award-winning Brockwell Park a three-minute walk away, the enormous variety of night-life and restaurants on offer ten minutes away in Brixton, the location cannot be overstated. The popular establishments on Brixton Hill are also easily reached at the end of the road, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub, whilst the other end of the road boasts neighbourhood favourite haunts such as Naughty Piglets, Maremma and The Hootenanny. This elegant apartment is ideal for anyone who wants to be close to the action while maintaining a sense of calm. The new owner will have the best of both worlds, with everything on offer in the hustle and bustle of central Brixton, yet will be able to retire to the quieter, village-like community that has been developed around Brixton Hill. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is only a ten-minute stroll away, whisking you into central London and the City within a few minutes. In the other direction is leafy Herne Hill, with its Sunday market, great pub scene and super-quick train links into the City and Victoria - there really is something for everyone.
