Property details

A bright and characterful two double bedroom garden flat, arranged over the ground floor of a carefully maintained Victorian terrace located on the leafy and residential Craster Road. This highly sought-after, quiet street sits within a residential pocket just off Brixton Hill, providing easy access to Brixton and Brockwell Park.

Well-proportioned throughout, this charming garden flat benefits from a bright and airy atmosphere. The current owners have been attentive in their care of the property, meaning the flat is in great condition and ready to move into, where the new purchaser can stamp their own mark over time. Planning permission has been granted for a side return extension, which presents an exciting opportunity to further modernise the home whilst increasing the overall value and square footage.

Currently, the flat measures up at a very well-distributed 740 square feet, the sensible layout maximises the space on offer without wasting any space on dull, unused hallways. Two comfortable double bedrooms sit at the front of the house, both with considerable bespoke storage and a degree of privacy between each other thanks to the family-sized bathroom that separates them. One of the bedrooms is beautifully lit by the large bay window at the front of the house, the other benefits from a peaceful position overlooking the rear garden.

An impressive open-plan reception stretches the remaining length of the house. A further bay window floods the living area with light, which boasts ample dimensions to relax and unwind or dine and entertain. The reception feeds through to a spacious modern kitchen, offering integrated appliances, ample storage options and French doors that allow a seamless flow out onto the pretty, low-maintenance private garden. The property further benefits from significant storage in the form of a basement and outdoor storage, brilliant for hiding away all those items not used on a regular basis.

Craster Road is a quiet street located in a sought after residential pocket with easy access to Brixton Hill and local amenities on the adjacent roads that include cafes, newsagents, a post office and the popular refurbished Elm Park Tavern. The property is a seventeen minute stroll down Brixton Hill to Brixton tube station and the culinary wonders of Brixton Village. This property has access to the extensive bus network on Brixton Hill which is just a few minutes’ walk with multiple buses flowing down the hill to the tube station in a couple of minutes and into London’s central district (133, 159, 59, 333 etc.). It is a five minute walk from what many local residents champion as London's best open space, Brockwell Park and a pleasant walk through the park leads to Herne Hill station and all the amenities (a fifteen minute walk). Tulse Hill and Streatham Hill stations are also within reach (a fifteen minute walk) with rail links including to London Bridge, Clapham Junction and Victoria. Early viewings are recommended.
