Property details

Tucked away peacefully on the second floor, this characterful and well-presented one bedroom flat resides within a well-maintained, popular purpose-built block with an attractive exterior and communal garden. The flat benefits from an ideal location, moments from the heart of Brixton, the Victoria line and the amenities of Brixton Hill.

Almost 500 square feet of internal space has been considerately utilised, without wasting any square footage on unused hallways. As a result every room feels airy, bright and comfortable, with plenty of space for storage options. The bedroom is peacefully positioned away from the main road and sits adjacent to a spacious reception room, which feeds through to a well-equipped contemporary kitchen. A second reception follows on, which could easily be re-purposed as a second bedroom and this space provides access to a contemporary bathroom. The flat further benefits from a pretty communal garden and use of a lift. There are storage units available for rent within the building, subject to availability, perfect for storing away plenty of items unused on a regular basis, clothes hoarders, sports equipment and extra furniture.

The flat is perfectly located just off Brixton Hill, a five-minute stroll to all that Brixton has to offer in terms of food and nightlife, and a ten-minute stroll to the green, open spaces of Brockwell Park. A pleasant fifteen-minute walk across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes and restaurants of leafy Herne Hill. Purchasers will have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub.

This charming flat is ideal for anyone who wants to be close to the action. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is a short stroll away as well as the multiple buses running up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes and on into central London. A lovely flat in a fantastic location, chain free.
