There are several outstanding schools and connections are great, with regular trains from Herne Hill station going to London Victoria, Blackfriars and Wimbledon.

Immaculately presented, this recently redecorated two double-bedroom top-floor flat is a fantastic example of a Victorian conversion, set within a handsome semi-detached period townhouse on leafy Deronda Road. Located in a popular residential pocket of roads next to Brockwell Park between the amenities on offer in Herne Hill and Tulse Hill.
There is 650 square feet of split-level internal space, delightfully arranged over the upper floors, comprising a separate kitchen and a spacious reception room, two bedrooms and a family bathroom. The reception is a bright and characterful space with a feature fireplace, and dimensions to lounge, dine and entertain. On the opposite side of the flat, a separate, integrated kitchen with modern finishes, cleverly utilising the space on offer and providing plenty of storage options.
The principal bedroom is tucked away at the back of the building with views over the neighbouring gardens and the second slightly smaller double bedroom has an additional built-in cupboard. Access to eaves storage provides a convenient place to hide away all those items unused on a regular basis and the property benefits from recently installed double-glazed windows.
Deronda Road is conveniently located a short walk from the green open spaces of Brockwell Park, lauded as London's best outdoor space by locals with its amazing lido among its myriad attractions. Tulse Hill train station is within a five-minute stroll with trains to London Bridge and central London via Southern Rail and the Thames Link. Herne Hill and West Dulwich are also within easy walking reach offering a village feel and a wide range of amenities. Brixton, first stop on the Victoria Line and the lauded Brixton Village is a five-minute bus journey or a twenty-four minute walk across Brockwell Park.
