Property details

An exciting opportunity to purchase a unique two double bedroom Victorian half-house, rarely available to market and offering an attractive low-maintenance private garden. This fantastic property boasts 900 square feet of internal space, two reception rooms and a highly sought-after location within a residential pocket that sits equidistant between central Brixton and Clapham High Street.

This charming and characterful home is arranged over three floors, with generous dimensions and an appealingly bright, airy atmosphere throughout. The ground floor comprises an attractive reception at the front complete with a bay window and feature fireplace, hardwood flooring runs through to a fully integrated and well-appointed kitchen-diner. The kitchen itself is substantial and offers considerable storage options. The space leads through to a utility room, a downstairs WC and access onto the low-maintenance private garden at the rear. Outside space has become more valuable than ever and this pretty garden is the ideal spot to savour the warmer months, hosting dinner parties’ al-fresco and soaking up the sunshine.

Arranged over the first floor, a particularly attractive and well-proportioned bedroom sits adjacent to the second reception room and a modern, family-sized bathroom at the rear. The second reception on this floor could easily be converted into a third bedroom should the purchaser desire. The second floor hosts the second ‘loft-style’ bedroom, stylishly finished with exposed brick and access to significant eaves storage.

This handsome Victorian home is nestled within a popular pocket of SW2, sandwiched between Brixton and Clapham. The cafes, bars and restaurants of up-and-coming Acre Lane are at the end of the road, with local heroes such as Boqueria Tapas, The Beast of Brixton, and Aries Bakehouse, to name a few, all on the doorstep. Within a further few minutes’ walk down the road, purchasers will find themselves in the heart of Brixton, with Brixton Village, POP Brixton, The Ritzy cinema and the legendary music venues, Brixton Academy and Brixton Electric, all at their fingertips. In the other direction, is vibrant and bustling Clapham High Street offering cracking nightlife, culinary delights and the green open spaces of Clapham Common. A short 10-minute stroll brings you to Abbeville Village with an abundance of local shops including The Ginger Pig butchers, MacFarlanes Dairy and the charming pub, The Abbeville. Potential purchasers will benefit from the Northern Line (Clapham North and Clapham Common tube stations) and the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station).
