Property details

This exceptional Victorian conversion flat occupies the first floor of one of the pretty houses in Poets Corner. Shakespeare Road is a quaint, tree-lined road in this sought after residential pocket adjacent to Brockwell Park, between Herne Hill and Brixton.

The property offers two comfortable double bedrooms tucked away at the top of a staircase that leads up to the first floor apartment. Both bedrooms are well-proportioned doubles with built-in storage. A modern bathroom with a warm inviting feel sits to the left of the landing which opens up into a dual-aspect reception room, packed full of charm with a kitchen conveniently located separately off the main floor, including all you need in terms of mod cons. Characterful features are a running theme throughout this property, with high ceilings, sash windows and a fireplace. Over 950 square feet of internal living space, nestled on the corner of the street offers plentiful windows and lots of natural light with an airy atmosphere throughout. The flat is a beautiful home and ready for a purchaser to move in hassle-free, and stamp their own mark over time.

Shakespeare Road is situated in the heart of Poets’ Corner, a highly desirable area close to Herne Hill station, a six-minute walk, and Brixton tube station, a ten-minute stroll. London Bridge is accessible in twenty-four minutes, Canary Wharf in thirty-seven minutes and Victoria within sixteen minutes, door to door. The celebrated Herne Hill establishments are close-by, as well as access to the shops and restaurants of Brixton Village. The green, open spaces of Brockwell Park are situated at the end of the road along with its fantastic 1930’s Lido, perfect for a summer dip.

With Brockwell Park, Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants and Brixton Village all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all potential purchasers. In short, a spacious apartment in an attractive period building in a sought-after residential street, only a stone's throw from the village of Herne Hill or the buzz of Brixton town, this apartment is far enough away to retain a sleepy, neighborhood feel. This is a real gem.
