Property details

A handsome example of a one-bedroom, Victorian conversion garden flat, brimming with character and located on one of Brixton’s most popular residential streets. This handsome Victorian terrace is situated close to the heart of Brixton - just around the corner from Windrush Square, The Ritzy and Brixton Village. This popular street benefits from a quiet setting as the road wraps around onto Beechdale Road, only allowing access to these particular houses on these two popular roads. Situated between Brixton station and Brockwell Park, this apartment is perfect for anyone looking to be close to the action, and cut down their commute, with the first stop on the Victoria line at Brixton station only a ten-minute walk away.

The pièce de résistance has to be the spacious open-plan reception and kitchen diner. A fantastic dual-aspect room with characterful features including wooden flooring, a bay window and high ceilings with coving, which opens out onto the large and attractive shared garden. A glass door from the eat-in kitchen diner allows the living space to flow seamlessly into the un-extended side return and through to the South-East facing outside space. The beautifully finished kitchen is sleek and modern, and there is also plenty of space for a dining table and a dedicated area to relax in the reception room. The conversion has been thought through and there are multiple storage options provided.

Down the hallway, the bathroom has been finished to a high standard, complete with sleek tiling, Jack and Jill sinks, and plenty of storage. Tucked away quietly to the rear of the property, the bedroom is a comfortable double room, with plenty of space for storage. Large windows displaying views over the garden provides an abundance of natural light. The large, well-maintained South-East facing garden is shared exclusively with the one apartment above and is the perfect spot in which to relax or entertain during the warmer months. There is also a decent basement, ideal for storing the clutter that buyers accumulate over the years. The flat is in great condition with a refreshing mix of period features and contemporary design throughout.

The house is perfectly located just off vibrant and trendy Brixton Hill, a ten-minute walk to the centre of Brixton. Purchasers will have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub. This exquisite home is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action but would prefer a quieter setting. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is a short stroll away and multiple buses run up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes and on into central London. The buses offer a great alternative to the tube and train stations for commuters into central London.

There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the finish, size, outside space, and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer – a rare find.
