Property details

A fantastic opportunity to renovate this classic example of a four double bedroom, Victorian terraced house on a highly sought-after road, perfectly located in this hugely popular residential pocket between Brixton and Herne Hill. This charming house is a complete blank canvas, providing the perfect chance for a purchaser to use their own inspiration and refurbish throughout, resulting in a home that completely reflects their personal taste. There is huge development potential, subject to the necessary permissions, which would increase the overall square footage and value of the property. A rear kitchen extension has the potential to create a truly spectacular space. The ground floor comprises a dual-aspect reception room occupying the front of a property, followed by a rear dining area and kitchen that opens out onto the generous, south-east facing garden. On the upper floors, a family sized bathroom and four well-proportioned double bedrooms, the master bedroom spanning the entire width of the house. The layout is incredibly versatile and the space can be altered to suit each individual purchaser's requirements, to create their ideal home over time.

Craster Road is a fifteen minute stroll down Brixton Hill to Brixton tube station, passing many lovely cafes to grab a coffee on the way, and the plethora of culinary wonders of Brixton Village and pop Brixton. The property is a five minute walk from what many local residents champion as London's best open space, Brockwell Park. Herne Hill station is reachable in under 15 minutes through the park, offering a delightful beginning to any commute, as well as offering super fast transport links into the city.
