Property details

A beautifully presented four bedroom freehold house, located just moments from two of Brixton’s most popular primary schools and an eight-minute stroll from the fantastic transport links in central Brixton station.

Almost 1,300 square feet split over three floors, this lovely home is flooded with a bright and airy atmosphere throughout. The ground floor comprises a stunning double aspect open plan reception room which spans the entire length of the building, measuring thirty-five feet from front to back. The kitchen is contemporary with granite worktops, integrated appliances, a wine cooler and a range cooker. There is fantastic built-in storage which cleverly hides multimedia tech and other items. Glass doors allow the living space to flow seamlessly into the private rear garden. This decked garden with raised seating is low-maintenance and the ideal spot in which to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The living room is the heart of this home and this bright and airy space will be used on a regular basis. Further storage and a downstairs WC complete the rooms on the ground floor.

Stairs lead to the first floor and two of the four double bedrooms plus a stylish bathroom. All four bedrooms are comfortable doubles, well-proportioned and similar in size. The master bedroom is tucked away and benefits from direct access onto a flat roof which offers views over the neighbouring gardens, The Shard and the City of London beyond. Last but not least the second floor comprises the two final double bedrooms and a second beautifully finished bathroom.

With nearly 1,300 square feet of internal space on a desirable road, this house is a rare find and is sure to appeal to a wide range of purchasers. These classic mid-century townhouses are a popular proposition and provide all the advantages that modern builds bring; an abundance of natural light, a versatile layout, energy efficiency etc.

Horsford Road and Torrens Road sit within a quiet and mutually supportive community that hosts an annual street party and street advent calendar. The shape of the road results in limited through traffic and the small catchment areas for the two adjacent popular primary schools gives an indication of the demographic living within close proximity.

Central Brixton is an eight-minute stroll and it’s a five-minute stroll to the green open spaces of Brockwell Park. A fourteen-minute walk across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes and restaurants of leafy Herne Hill. Both Sudbourne School and Corpus Christi primary schools are also within a few minutes’ walk. Purchasers will have the amenities on Brixton Hill within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton, the White Horse Pub and Substation, the wildly popular new climbing centre and vegetarian cafe. The location is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action, yet retain a sense of calm. The first stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is a short stroll down the hill and multiple buses run up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes and onwards into central London. Clapham High Street is also within a twenty-minute stroll, covering the wants and needs for the majority of purchasers.

Early registration of interest is recommended.
