Property details

Arranged over three floors and well-proportioned throughout, this charming family home offers four double bedrooms, two bathrooms (plus a ground-floor WC) and a low-maintenance, predominantly South-facing private garden. The house benefits from a fantastic location, quietly tucked away on a sought-after residential road, equidistant from Brixton and Herne Hill, with the vast green open spaces of Brockwell Park around the corner.

A sympathetic layout throughout maximises the generous square footage on offer and the property has been extended with care and attention to detail, providing a bright and contemporary home that balances modern design perfectly with all the charm and character of the era in which it was originally built. The ground floor is perfect for entertaining, hosting family and guests. The dual-aspect reception is a warm, bright and appealing space, with high ceilings, feature fireplaces and a large bay window. The living space flows through to an extended kitchen diner at the rear, complete with multiple skylights, all you need in terms of mod cons and ample room for a large dining table. The private rear garden is a low-maintenance suntrap, perfect for savouring the warmer months of the year. The ground floor further offers a convenient WC and a study/work-from-home area.

The first and second floors of the home provide four comfortable double bedrooms. The principal ‘loft-style’ room is particularly appealing; vaulted ceilings, flooded with natural light and boasting a beautifully finished en-suite bathroom and significant storage options. Two further generous bedrooms sit on the floor below and the fourth, still a comfortable double that could also easily be repurposed to suit the needs of the purchaser. A second, family-sized bathroom serves the bedrooms on the first floor, completing this delightful period property.

Barnwell Road is a sought-after residential street and runs adjacent to the incredibly popular Poets’ Corner, a highly desirable pocket of roads between Herne Hill and Brixton (approximately an eight-minute walk to both). London Bridge is accessible in twenty-eight minutes, Canary Wharf in thirty-nine minutes and Victoria within twenty minutes, door to door. The celebrated Herne Hill establishments are close-by and the restaurants and shops within the lauded Brixton Village, the amenities of the high street and Brixton Station are all within reach. The green, open spaces of Brockwell Park are also at the end of the road, along with its fantastic 1930s Lido.

With Brockwell Park, Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants and Brixton Village all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all potential purchasers. In short, a characterful Victorian terrace house on a popular street, in a sought-after area, only a stone's throw from Brixton and Herne Hill town centres but far enough away to retain a peaceful, neighbourhood feel.
