Property details

A fantastic example of a two double bedroom period conversion flat, arranged over the first floor of a handsome Victorian semi-detached townhouse in the heart of Poet’s Corner. Shakespeare Road is a quiet and residential road, equidistant to both Herne Hill and Brixton centres, and will appeal to purchasers who are contemplating moving to either of these popular areas.

The property boasts a wonderfully bright open-plan reception room at the front of the house, high-ceilings and appealing sash windows create an airy atmosphere, with views over the pretty street below. This well-proportioned room offers a fantastic modern, integrated kitchen with a sleek finish, high-end appliances and a convenient breakfast bar, with the adjacent living area perfect for socialising or relaxing, whilst still offering dimensions for a dining table.

Both bedrooms are well-proportioned doubles and are peacefully positioned towards the rear of the building, overlooking the gardens below. The larger of the two offers significant storage options and the second could easily be repurposed should the purchaser require a home office or nursery. The family sized bathroom completing the flat is ideally located between the two bedrooms. Further storage options are available within the loft.

Shakespeare Road is situated in the heart of Poets’ Corner, a highly desirable residential pocket of roads between Herne Hill and Brixton. Herne Hill station is a six-minute walk and Brixton tube station is 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 and the restaurants and shops within the lauded Brixton Village, the amenities of the high street and Brixton Station are a ten-minute stroll. The green, open spaces of Brockwell Park are also at the end of the road, along with its fantastic 1930’s Lido.

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 popular street in a sought-after area, only a stone's throw from Herne Hill town centre but far enough away to retain a sleepy, neighbourhood feel.

Chain-free.
