Property details

An exceptional family home offering four double bedrooms, four bathrooms, two reception rooms and a large garage, all arranged over three floors of this beautifully presented, double-fronted and end-of-terrace Victorian house. Boasting over 2,100 square feet of internal space in a strikingly characterful property moments from central Brixton, Herne Hill and Brockwell Park.

On entering the house, the balanced marriage of modern living and true period character is apparent, from the original tiled floor and ceiling cornicing to the sleek, high-spec finishes in the kitchen and bathroom. The double front of this house is occupied by handsome dual reception rooms, both adorned with large bay windows and striking fireplaces. One of the big selling points of this beautiful home is the flexibility the layout offers, particularly on the ground floor where the living space could act as a reception room and dining room, or formal drawing room, a playroom, or fifth bedroom, depending on the new purchaser's search requirements. Tucked away at the back of the building is a stylish eat-in kitchen, complete with a large range cooker and plenty of storage, a conveniently located bathroom, and a utility room accessed within the manicured, private garden. The garden is truly a tranquil peaceful sanctuary where you will feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Arranged over the first floor, three of the four double bedrooms, are well-proportioned rooms benefitting from an abundance of natural light and an airy atmosphere throughout. These comfortable double rooms are decorated with neutral tones and benefit from exposed wood flooring with ample storage space. The principal bedroom offers an en-suite bathroom, equipped with a bathtub and a separate walk-in shower. There is a further bathroom on the first floor serving the second and third bedrooms. The top floor of the house has been carefully converted, providing a fourth bedroom with ample built-in storage and Velux skylights. There is an additional bathroom and an appealing study area with considerable eaves storage. The current owner has done a beautiful job of demonstrating what can be done with such an impressive space, the house is ready to move into where the new owner can stamp their own mark over time.

There is also the added selling point of granted planning permission to extend and reconfigure the ground floor, alongside approved alterations to the garage. Plans and further information are available on request.

Mervan Road is a highly sought-after, attractive and quiet street, in an extremely popular pocket of roads between Brixton and Herne Hill. The centre of Brixton is a five-minute walk, with all it has to offer in terms of nightlife, restaurants and shopping. Leafy Herne Hill is a ten-minute stroll in the opposite direction, with what many local residents regard as London's best green space, Brockwell Park, located within a stone’s throw. With Brixton Village, Brockwell Park, and Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all tastes. In short, an exceptional property on a desirable street, close to the action but far enough away to offer a tranquil feel.
