Property details

Keating Estates are delighted to offer to market a characterful two bedroom garden flat, arranged over the ground floor of a handsome Victorian terrace on the highly sought-after Holmewood Road. The property is situated within a quiet residential pocket of Brixton Hill, on a no-through road adjacent to a beautiful garden square and has easy access to central Brixton, Streatham and Clapham.

At almost 800 square feet this fantastic property offers a rich and appealing mix of charming period character and contemporary design, including original Victorian mosaic flooring in the hallway. Boasting a large bay window and wooden floorboards, the principal bedroom, currently occupied as a spacious shared bedroom, offers ample storage space, a versatile room which can easily be repurposed to suit the needs of the purchaser, as either a generous double bedroom or luxurious second lounge area. A comfortable second double bedroom sits adjacent, peacefully tucked away from the already quiet road, featuring wooden floors, enough storage space for even the most avid sartorialists and double doors opening out to the private garden, allowing fresh air to breeze through creating an idyllic room in which to unwind.

A neutral family-sized bathroom separates the bedrooms from the open plan reception room, which is arranged at the rear of the property. A true heart of the home, the reception room offers ample space to lounge, cook and dine. To one end, a cosy lounge area ideal for relaxing with family or friends and to the rear a dine-in kitchen boasts ample surface space and storage in trendy cabinetry plus room for a well-sized dining table. Further double patio doors lead out from the kitchen to the low-maintenance private garden, perfect for hosting summer parties and dining al-fresco, the space is sure to be enjoyed. The flat further benefits from a cellar, perfect for storing away those essential but rarely used items.

Situated on friendly and neighbourly road, the local residents are brought together by the green open spaces of Holmewood Gardens just a few doors down. A fifteen-minute walk away you have everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the culinary delights of Brixton Village to large brand-shops and cracking transport links, first stop on the Victoria Line. Regular day and night buses run up and down Brixton Hill, whisking you down to the tube within a few minutes. In the other direction, you have Streatham High Street and its multitude of restaurants and bars. Brockwell Park, Tooting and Balham Common, and Clapham Common are all within walking distance. Having the South Circular on your doorstep and the option for on-street permit parking the location is perfect for those with a vehicle.
