Property details

A rare find nestled within Brixton’s most cherished conservation area is this superb three-bedroom, two-bathroom split-level apartment with gardens, nestled within a perfectly designed, modern development, yet with all the charm and character of a Victorian property. The development, set back from leafy Josephine Avenue was built with tremendous attention to detail, mock-Victorian elegance and luxury, whilst being engineered to meet all the requirements of modern living, including high-energy efficiency. With the rolling greenery of the award-winning Brockwell Park a three-minute walk away, the enormous variety of nightlife and restaurants on offer ten minutes away in Brixton, the location cannot be overstated.

Split over the second and third floors and offering over 1,100 square feet of internal space, all rooms benefit from generous proportions whilst the home closely competes with the usable space on offer within some houses in the area, that have considerably higher asking prices.

To the front of the property, overlooking the treetops below sits a sociable dine-in kitchen, tastefully decorated with shaker-style cabinetry in soft neutral tones and equipped with fully integrated appliances and ample storage, including a walk-in pantry. With natural light pouring through multiple sash windows and bathing the dining table, this wonderful room is destined to host many a Sunday dinner with family or friends. Enjoying the same leafy views, the grand reception room sits adjacent, a truly calming space in which to host or unwind with your favourite book. A contemporary family bathroom completes this floor, a bright and welcoming room, with warming tones creating a relaxing environment for a soak in the bubbles after a stroll around nearby Brockwell Park.

Upstairs, the three comfortable double bedrooms are quietly nestled. Spanning the depth of the building to enjoy the light from dual aspect windows, the principal bedroom is an impressive private suite, benefitting from a convenient en-suite bathroom and multiple built-in storage options. Located across the hall, the other two bedrooms are both comfortable doubles with built-in storage. Not to be underestimated, there is access to substantial eaves storage for hiding away rarely used yet essential belongings.

Further benefits include a large, well-maintained, shared rear garden with a South-facing aspect, secure bike storage and access to unofficial off-street parking (operating on a first-come, first-served basis). Huddled amidst Victorian terraces on the ever-popular, tree-lined Josephine Avenue, the property can only be recognised as a modern build by the higher level of detailing and crispness of its features within, with the shapes, lines, light and feel only available from the very best of contemporary building design.

Situated a ten-minute stroll to all that central Brixton has to offer, the popular establishments on Brixton Hill are also easily reached at the end of the road, including F Mondays, Stir Coffee, Pizza Brixton and the White Horse Pub. This elegant apartment 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 will be able to retire to the quieter, village-like community that has been developed around Brixton Hill or take a stroll around the Sunday market in sleepier Herne Hill. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is only a ten-minute stroll away, whisking you into central London and the City within a few minutes, as well as day and night bus options at the end of the avenue.
