Property details

A well-proportioned two double bedroom, split-level flat complete with a large private roof terrace and packed full of original features, tucked away peacefully on a popular residential road, moments from the heart of Brixton, Brockwell Park and Herne Hill.

Bright and airy with high ceilings and beautiful sash windows, this endearingly characterful flat is bursting with attractive attributes. Feature fireplaces, bespoke storage options, hardwood flooring and an incredible private roof terrace, to name a few. With over 1000 square feet of internal space, the flat is as large as some freehold houses in the area, and being split-over two floors adds to the feeling of a true home. The reception at the front of the property spans the width of the building and is the perfect spot in which to relax and unwind, dine and entertain. A convenient opening between the reception and separate kitchen provides a slightly more open feel, whilst also providing the perfect spot for a more casual dining option or bar area. The kitchen itself is also large enough for a dining table, offering plenty of storage options, surface space and views over the rear gardens. Access to outside space has become more valuable than ever before and the large private terrace is a fantastic spot to savour the warmer months of the year or enjoy an evening drink.

Both bedrooms are well-proportioned doubles and are peacefully positioned within the building. The large ‘loft-style’ room is particularly spacious and unique, with plenty of character and style. The second bedroom is a fantastic space with a feature fireplace but could also be repurposed to suit the needs of the purchaser. Finally, a family sized bathroom and a separate WC are conveniently located on the initial floor of the flat, modern and tastefully finished.

The property is situated in the heart of the ever-popular Josephine Avenue Conservation area, a quiet and leafy network of similarly attractive, Victorian terraced roads. The centre of Brixton, South London's new culinary mecca, is a ten-minute walk, with all it has to offer in terms of restaurants, nightlife and transport links, whilst two of Brixton’s most sought-after primary schools are also within a short stroll. Herne Hill is a fifteen-minute walk, with its village charm and eclectic array of shops and pubs, as well as what many local residents regard as London's best open space, Brockwell Park and its 1930’s Lido. With Brixton Village, Brockwell Park, and Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all purchasers.
