Property details

Unique and rarely available, this two double bedroom Victorian half-house is located in the highly sought-after residential pocket that sits equidistant between central Brixton and Clapham High Street.

Over 900 square feet of well-appointed space is utilised effectively. On entering the property you are greeted by a large open-plan room spanning the width and length of the home. A Dual aspect reception offers a sociable environment to relax, unwind, dine and entertain and this space feeds onto an attractive kitchen at the rear of the house. The current owner has taken great care of the property, maintaining the beautiful Victorian character and finishing the property in tasteful, neutral décor. There is a charming feature fireplace in the reception, bespoke storage and a large bay window that floods the room with light.

The modern kitchen at the back of the property is attractive with an appealing and high-quality finish. This attractive space leads out to a tranquil, private garden with a charming planted boarder and comfortable dimensions for entertaining. All three bedroom spaces are arranged over the first and second floor. The master is a particularly impressive room with excellent space and storage options, completed with a sleek shower en-suite. The second room on this floor is currently occupied as a study, however it would also work as a guest room, nursery, dressing room or anything that the purchaser requires. A fantastic family bathroom completes this floor, finished with attractive silver fixtures and trendy tiling. The property is completed by a converted loft space, currently occupied as a bright and well-proportioned second bedroom, offering comfortable dimensions for a home office space as well as a double bed and further eaves storage.

This handsome Victorian home is nestled within a popular pocket of SW2, sandwiched between Brixton and Clapham. The cafes, bars and restaurants of up-and-coming Acre Lane are at the end of the road, with local heroes such as Boqueria Tapas, The Beast of Brixton, and Aries Bakehouse, to name a few, all on the doorstep. Within a further few minutes’ walk down the road, purchasers will find themselves in the heart of Brixton, with Brixton Village, POP Brixton, The Ritzy cinema and the legendary music venues, Brixton Academy and Brixton Electric, all at their fingertips. In the other direction, is vibrant and bustling Clapham High Street offering cracking nightlife, culinary delights and the green open spaces of Clapham Common. A short 10-minute stroll brings you to Abbeville Village with an abundance of local shops including The Ginger Pig butchers, MacFarlanes Dairy and the charming pub, The Abbeville. Potential purchasers will benefit from the Northern Line (Clapham North and Clapham Common tube stations) and the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station).
