To the front of the ground floor is a welcoming reception room, shadow-cornicing decorates the high ceilings, complimenting the feature fireplace and large bay window. Adjacent sits a spacious extended kitchen diner, designed with the discerning host in mind the sleek modern kitchen offers generous storage, ample surface space and ambient lighting choices, creating a sociable setting to cook up a feast for friends or family. Flooded with natural light from ceiling lanterns, this expansive room provides an abundance of space to cook, dine and recline, with bi-fold doors seamlessly leading out to the manicured private garden. A neat modern WC completes the ground floor of this generous family home.

Arranged over the upper floors are five very generous double bedrooms. In terms of dimensions, there is no compromise in this property, making it truly ideal for a wide range of purchasers. The principal bedroom spans the entire width of the house and benefits from a lovely bay window. The four further bedrooms are all endearing and peaceful spaces, any of the rooms could easily be repurposed to suit the needs of the purchaser. Three attractive, contemporary bathrooms serve the house, all with walk in showers and the third also providing a bathtub. The basement provides sufficient storage space for all of those items not required on a daily basis.

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 and Effra Road within touching distance, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the Naughty Piglets and two supermarkets. This exquisite house is ideal for anyone who wants to be close to the action whist 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 the Josephine Conservation area. 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 terrace. 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.
