Property details

This wonderful two double bedroom garden flat is a fantastic example of what can be done when one of these handsome Victorian townhouses is converted and refurbished with care and attention to detail. Arranged over the ground floor of a semi-detached house on Arlingford Road, a desirable and leafy residential road next to Brockwell Park, the property benefits from a quiet, cul-de-sac setting and a real sense of community. This attractive space has been lovingly renovated to a high standard throughout, and benefits from an abundance of natural light that promotes an incredibly airy atmosphere.

The heart of the home is the stunning open-plan, dual-aspect room at the rear of the property. High ceilings, skylights and glass bi-folding doors create a beautifully airy and bright atmosphere within this entertaining space. A cosy and comfortable lounge occupies one half of the room, followed by a decadent, tastefully finished kitchen, complete with shaker-style cupboards, a range cooker and stylish tiling. There is an abundance of storage options, plenty of space for a large dining table and the room opens straight out onto an appealing, South-West facing, private garden. The low-maintenance outside space is considerably spacious, reaching over 38 feet in length making this flat ideal for BBQs and garden parties in the warmer months.

Both bedrooms are well-appointed doubles, the principal bedroom benefits from a large bay window and ceiling cornicing as well as a feature fireplace, adding endearing character. There is significant storage built-in and plenty of space for any additional storage if required. The second bedroom, still a comfortable double and peacefully positioned overlooking the garden, could easily be repurposed as demonstrated by the current owners. A sleek modern bathroom completes this property which also comes with access to a cellar, ideal for storing away those items not used on a regular basis.

As far as locations go, it doesn’t get much better. This handsome Victorian house is nestled on Arlingford Road, a quiet residential street located a ten minute walk to Brixton tube station, and has the fantastic benefit of an entrance to Brockwell Park at the top of the road. Living close to an outdoor green space is more important than ever, and the beautiful greenery of this award winning park will not disappoint, along with its iconic 1930s Lido, excellent sports facilities, popular café and more. Arlingford Road is an easy ten minute walk to the centre of Brixton, whilst a large supermarket, and various local heroes such as Brockwell Blend, The Hootenanny and Naughty Piglets are also right on your doorstep. The amenities in leafy Herne Hill are also a pleasant ten minute stroll through Brockwell Park, and the property will appeal to purchasers considering moving to both of these areas.

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.
