Property details

An attractive example of a two double bedroom Victorian conversion, occupying the ground floor of a handsome double-fronted Victorian townhouse nestled amongst the characterful period homes on leafy Elm Park.

This lovely flat offers a private, South-West facing private courtyard garden and over 730 square feet of internal space. Both bedrooms are well-proportioned double rooms, with significant storage. The bedrooms are peacefully tucked away on one side of the building, whilst the communal areas of the flat occupy the other. Separating the two, a modern bathroom and access to a private cellar, ideal for storing away clutter or utilities.

A large open-plan reception has high ceilings and rings true to the character in which the original house was built, with a large bay window and feature fireplace. There is plenty of room to relax and unwind, dine and entertain guests. The modern and well-kept kitchen follows on, integrated to maximize on space and opening straight out onto the open-plan reception room. On the other side, the kitchen feeds through to a handy utility area that could be repurposed to suit the needs of the purchaser, and then out onto the rear, private garden.

This appealing flat comes with a share of the freehold and is nestled on a desirable road set quietly off Brixton Hill, perfectly situated for anyone wanting to be close to the action yet far enough away to retain a sense of calm. Brixton town centre and Brixton Village are a short stroll down Brixton Hill or a three-minute bus ride. Brockwell Park is a seven-minute walk, which many local residents champion as one of London's best parks, across which is Herne Hill station within a fifteen-minute walk. Elm Park conveniently has a range of amenities further down the road with a recently renovated neighbourhood pub serving great food with a diverse range of beers. At the end of the road is vibrant Brixton Hill and its brilliant array of cafes, pubs and restaurants, such as F Mondays, Pizza Brixton, and the White Horse pub, to name a few.
