Property details

A perfect example of a four double bedroom, two-bathroom Victorian terraced house, arranged over three floors and situated in the heart of the ever-popular Josephine Conservation area, a quiet and leafy network of similarly attractive Victorian terraced roads, minutes from the heart of Brixton.

This stunning family home has been carefully maintained with tasteful, high-quality fixtures and finishes throughout. The ground floor comprises a fantastic dual-aspect reception at the front of the property that feeds through to a beautifully extended open-plan kitchen at the rear. The kitchen is followed by a private and East-facing garden. The ground floor of the property is ideal for entertaining guests and enjoying family time, truly the heart of the home with spaces that have been thoughtfully designed to fit the purpose. The reception is stylish and cosy with high, corniced ceilings and a stunning feature fireplace. French doors at the rear allow a seamless flow into the rear kitchen. The high-quality, industrial-style kitchen is modern and appealing with a stream of skylights, a kitchen island, exposed brickwork, and generous dimensions for a large dining table. Access straight onto the patio area of the garden is perfect for al-fresco dining in the warmer months.

Arranged over the first and second floors, four well-proportioned double bedrooms and two beautifully finished modern bathrooms complete the home. The principal bedroom spans the width of the property and is flooded with natural light thanks to a large bay and additional sash window. Generous dimensions allow for plenty of storage options. The further three bedrooms provide plenty of options and present the opportunity to repurpose certain spaces to meet the needs of the purchaser. Further selling points of the property include a significant loft space and a cellar on the lower ground floor, both perfect for extra storage space and the potential for further development, subject to the necessary permissions.

The property, with its excellent living space and much sought-after garden space, is a perfect home, nestled in a leafy part of vibrant and thriving Brixton, on tree-lined Helix Road. Situated a ten-twelve minute stroll to all that central Brixton has to offer, purchasers also have the popular establishments on Brixton Hill within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton, and the White Horse Pub. This exquisite house is ideal for anyone who wants to be close to the action while maintaining a sense of calm. The new owner will have the best of both worlds with everything on offer in the hustle and bustle of central Brixton, yet able to retire to the quieter village-like community that has been developed around Brixton Hill. First stop on the Victoria Line, Brixton tube station is a stroll down the hill, whisking you into central London and the City within a few minutes. The buses also offer a great alternative to the tube and train stations, with a bus stop at the end of the road, a stone’s throw from this residential road. The location is ideal with the green, open spaces of Brockwell Park within a five-minute walk. A pleasant fifteen-minute saunter across the park brings you to Herne Hill station and the many pubs, cafes, restaurants, and Sunday market of leafy Herne Hill. The village feel continues with easy access to Dulwich Village, East Dulwich, and trendy Peckham, catering for the wants and needs of the majority of potential purchasers.
