Property details

A stunning example of a one double bedroom flat within an attractive, period, purpose-built block. This beautifully presented apartment will spark the interest of an array of buyers due to its fantastic dimensions, unrivalled location, and an abundance of natural light.

Tucked away securely on the fourth floor and providing views of the surrounding communal gardens below through vast sash windows, the flat is airy and bright, creating a lovely atmosphere with tasteful, neutral décor throughout. The kitchen is well-equipped and a particularly good size for a one-bedroom property. Sleek and stylish, with white gloss cabinets, there is plenty of surface space and storage, with space-maximising integrated appliances. The kitchen opens out onto the cosy living area, warm and inviting with hardwood floors whilst also providing comfortable dimensions to dine. This open-plan reception is the ideal spot to relax and unwind or entertain guests.

A spacious double bedroom sits on the other side of the property, boasting plenty of space for storage options. The flat is completed by a well-proportioned, contemporary bathroom. Further benefits include optional off-street parking, a bike shed, communal gardens, an outside gym and a community centre where residents can enjoy an annual carol concert as well as other appropriate festivities such as the firework display. The strong sense of community amongst residents doesn’t end here as people are also encouraged to get involved with flower-basket planting and the allotment.

This bright and airy property is minutes from the heart of Brixton with Brixton tube station, the extremely popular Brixton Village, POP Brixton, large brand-shops and the green open spaces of Brockwell Park with its iconic lido, all within a short stroll. Potential purchasers will benefit from fantastic transport links which include access to the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station), the Northern Line (Clapham North and Clapham Common tube stations), the Overground service at Clapham High Street Station, National Rail services from Brixton Station, plus multiple buses running into central London. The bars, restaurants and supermarkets on Acre Lane are also a short stroll away. The amenities of Clapham High Street are around a 10-minute walk, including cracking nightlife and culinary delights. The cafes and boutique stores in Clapham Old Town and Abbeville Village are within reach and the green open spaces of Clapham Common are also easily accessible.

All in all a brilliant one-bedroom flat offering convenience, character and a high-quality finish, moments from both Brixton and Clapham and all that these in-demand neighbourhoods have to offer.

Clapham area highlights

There’s something for everyone in Clapham and it draws an eclectic crowd. Clapham Common buzzes with activity and there’s a diverse mix of restaurants, shops, independent boutiques and nightlife, along with some wonderful architecture. The local schools are excellent and the transport options plentiful, with three London Underground (Northern Line) stations in close proximity and frequent London Overground trains from Clapham High Street station. It rarely feels overcrowded here, despite the abundance of things to do, and Clapham endures as one of the most desirable places to live in south London.
