Property details

An exciting opportunity to purchase a truly unique semi-detached freehold house, offering two double bedrooms, two recently renovated bathrooms, over 740 square feet of well-appoited internal space (with scope for significant extension) plus a private and South-facing garden.

This charming house was built with modern living in mind and is discreetly tucked away behind rows of Victorian terraces, almost completely hidden from the road, and will appeal to anyone who values their privacy, as well as a central location. The grounds are gated, offering fantastic security and the property is accessed through an aesthetically pleasing courtyard, complete with a pond and fountain that feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of Clapham and Brixton High Streets.

On entering the house through your private entrance you are met by a large reception, ideal for relaxing and unwinding, entertaining guests, and dining. The reception feeds through to a separate kitchen, modern and well designed with sleek white cupboards and a handy WC and utility. This well-appointed kitchen space provides direct access to the private, secluded garden, an ideal spot to enjoy the warmer months.

On the first floor, two well-proportioned and similarly sized double bedrooms, each with their own modern en-suite bathrooms. The square footage is savoured within this property, a sympathetic layout and thoughtful storage options are teamed with minimising hallway space, in order to maximise usable living space, providing function and comfortability throughout the house. The property has the added advantage of access to loft and eaves storage, plus the opportunity to potentially extend in the future.

Glenelg Road is a quiet and peaceful residential street, located equidistant to amenities in both Brixton and Clapham, appealing to purchasers looking to buy in both of these sought-after neighbourhoods. The Northern and Victoria tube lines in Clapham and Brixton respectively are both within a ten to fifteen-minute walk, whilst the cafes, bars and restaurants of up-and-coming Acre Lane are easily accessible, with local heroes such as Boqueria Tapas, The Beast of Brixton, and Blank Coffee, to name a few, all on the doorstep. In one direction there is all Brixton has to offer with Brockwell Park and the extremely popular Brixton Village, to large brand shops and first-rate transport links. In the other direction is the vibrant and diverse Clapham High Street, offering great nightlife, and the green open spaces of Clapham Common. Well-heeled Abbeville Village is also within walking distance, with its multitude of boutiques, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants.

Brixton area highlights

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.
