Property details

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

A charming and well-appointed space that 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, integrated kitchen with views over the pretty landscaped garden at the rear. The current owner has taken great care of the property, maintaining the beautiful Victorian charm and finishing the property in tasteful, neutral décor. Bespoke storage and a large bay window that floods the room with light add to the character. The entertaining space feeds through to the garden, which was expertly designed to maximise the space on offer and create an ideal garden for hosting, embellished with stunning, seasonal floral displays.

The master bedroom is a particularly impressive room with excellent space and storage options, benefitting from an abundance of natural light and attractive views onto the pretty street below. The second room would make a fantastic guest room, nursery, dressing room or anything that the purchaser requires. A beautiful family bathroom completes this property. The property is an ideal investment for anyone who is looking to add value, with a substantial loft space that could be converted as neighbouring properties have done on the road.

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).
