Property details

Endearingly bright and characterful throughout, this well-presented two double bedroom, two bathroom flat is arranged over the ground floor of an attractive Victorian mansion block with its own private rear garden, tucked away moments from Brixton High Street. Canterbury Crescent is a five-minute walk to all of Brixton’s popular amenities, vast choice of eateries, bars and the first stop on the Victoria line.

At over 810 square feet, the property is well-proportioned with characterful features that include high ceilings, a timber sash bay window and wooden flooring. The living space is fantastic for entertaining and flows seamlessly through to an eat-in kitchen diner. The cosy lounge area is flooded with natural light through the double-glazed bay window and the kitchen offers generous storage options and surface space, ideal for hosting dinner parties.

The two double bedrooms are both comfortable doubles peacefully positioned overlooking the private rear garden. The larger of the two bedrooms benefits from an en-suite bathroom and direct garden access, allowing fresh air to stream into the room, contributing to the airy atmosphere throughout. The two bedrooms have built-in storage and last but not least, there is a modern family bathroom that completes the property.

Private outside space is more important than ever and the South-West facing private rear garden is the perfect area to relax and enjoy the warmer months. This charming property is an exciting blank canvas, ready to move into where the purchaser can stamp their own mark over time.

The entire block was renovated with high-quality workmanship 15 years ago, installing new double glazing and sound insulating all the flats, meaning low energy costs and no disturbing neighbours if you want to have a dinner party. The transport links are second to none, with only a five-minute walk to Brixton underground station, the first stop of the Victoria Line with a short commute to the city. The property is a 30-second walk from multiple bus stops taking you all across London. The location is ideal with the green, open spaces of Wyck Gardens within a ten-minute walk, with 31 acres of beautiful park which hosts; horse stables and riding club, kids play area, urban cricket pitch, football pitches and a community garden. In the other direction, you are a stroll away from the award-winning Brockwell Park, one of South London’s most popular parks.
