Property details

Beautifully finished throughout, this stylishly extended two double bedroom, two bathroom, Victorian semi-detached home could not be located more ideally for convenient access to both Clapham and Brixton. Set back from Acre lane with a leafy, private front garden and a mature, private rear garden that extends 41 feet, this house is sure to appeal to a wide range of purchasers.

Arranged over the ground floor, a spectacular rear extension provides a truly pleasing open-plan living space. Drenched in natural light thanks to the large-pane sky light and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open right up to allow a flow straight out onto the pretty garden. A particularly smart kitchen occupies one half of the space, modern and tasteful with high-end, integrated appliances and stylish gold fittings, offering well-equipped storage and surface options. The central island offers sociable cooking, perfect for entertaining and a more casual dining option/ breakfast bar. The room feeds through to a lovely reception area, offering comfortable dimensions for lounging as well as a large dining table. The garden at the rear is also perfect for entertaining with a handy decked area – ideal for al fresco dining and hosting BBQs. The garden boasts mature flowering plants that really flourish in the warmer months of the year and is not overlooked which is hard to come by in the area.

Two well-proportioned double bedrooms comprise the first floor, the principal is peacefully positioned at the rear and comes with significant built-in storage and a truly appealing en-suite bathroom. A tasteful free-standing roll-top bathtub and separate walk in shower occupy this light-flooded space. The second bedroom is equally as comfortable, offering great dimensions for added storage and also has a sleek and modern en-suite bathroom. There is a further reception room tucked away at the front of the ground floor. This space can be utilised to suit the needs of the purchaser, be that as a third bedroom to let, a second reception, a home office or indeed anything that may be required.

The house is extremely quiet despite its central location, thanks to top of the range double glazing and its set back position. The current owners have been meticulous in their adjustments to the property and the new purchaser will benefit from a built-in sound system in the entertaining area as well as tasteful, neutral décor throughout. The property has a considerable amount to offer from the generous dimensions, to the finish, location and amazing rear garden.

As far as locations go, it does not get better; just around the corner from Bedford road - Clapham North station is quickly reachable in minutes, with Clapham High Street, the over ground and the rich array of amenities on offer are also easily reachable. Acre Lane itself also offers a wide variety of eateries and bars plus all the fun and vibrancy Brixton has to offer is a five-ten minute stroll down the road, from music venues and the ever-popular Brixton Village, to POP Brixton, The Ritzy Cinema and more. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton station is within a stone’s throw making travelling into central London and beyond a breeze.
