Property details

A charming two double bedroom garden flat, over 800 square feet arranged over the ground floor of a handsome Victorian terraced house that is peacefully set back from the road and located minutes from the heart of Brixton.

The semi-open plan kitchen and reception create the heart of the home, a large open reception-diner opens onto a sleek and modern kitchen, with glass double doors feeding out to a lovely private patio garden. The space is ideal for entertaining, relaxing and unwinding as well as dining. The kitchen itself is an aesthetically appealing space with modern finishes and trendy tiling. There is plenty of storage options and surface space, as well as a handy storage area tucked away to the side; ideal for utilities and clutter.

The larger of the two bedrooms is a particularly impressive space. A large room with a bright and airy atmosphere, drenched in sunlight through a characterful bay window that overlooks the long, leafy front garden and plenty of space for storage, dressing tables or anything else the purchaser may require. A modern three-piece bathroom separates the two bedrooms and creates a level of privacy, which can be particularly handy if sharing with friends or renting out a room. The second room is still a well-proportioned double with a peaceful location towards the rear of the building.

As far as locations go, it doesn’t get much better. The property is around a seven-minute walk to Brixton tube station, and has the fantastic benefit of an entrance to Brockwell Park at the top of a neighbouring road. It is also a short walk to the centre of Brixton, whilst a large supermarket and various cafes, pubs and restaurants such as Brockwell Blend, The Hootenanny and Naughty Piglets are also right on your doorstep. The amenities in Herne Hill are also a pleasant ten minute stroll through Brockwell Park and the property will appeal to purchasers considering moving to both areas. A perfect flat in a wonderful location.

Brixton is a melting pot of culture, cuisine and creativity. An explosion of inventive, new restaurants, pop-ups, fashion stores and art galleries sit alongside the many great pubs, music venues and nightclubs that have been around for years. 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. Brixton brings together all the best things about London and is one of the most vibrant and diverse places to live south of the river.
