Property details

A lovely one double bedroom flat located on the ground floor of a secure modern development a stone’s throw from Brockwell Park with the amenities of both Brixton and Herne Hill a comfortable walking distance away.

Measuring up at almost 500 square feet of internal living space, this beautiful apartment will appeal to multiple purchasers, from first time purchasers, to buy-to-let investors or those looking for a convenient pied-a-terre.

The reception room, flooded with natural light from large pane windows, is separate from the kitchen and offers generous proportions, allowing the new purchaser to enjoy this space as either a substantial reception with ample space for a dining table, or to also occupy part of the room as work from home area should this be required. The separate kitchen is equipped with plentiful storage options, a neutral room ideal for cooking up a storm whilst also keeping food aromas away from the social spaces.

Sitting adjacent to the reception room is the bedroom, a large double with built in wardrobes and space for additional storage and dressing table or desk if required. A family bathroom completes this neat property, equipped with both shower and bath and finished in neutral tones. Additional storage is on offer in the hallway cupboards, ideal for storing those essential yet seldom used items.

Effra Parade is a quiet road and the development benefits from a secure bike shed within the gated carpark.

As locations go, it is terrific. Brockwell Park (lauded as London's best outdoor space by locals with its amazing lido among its myriad attractions) on your doorstep and a large Sainsbury’s is within a minute’s walk. Various cafes, pubs and restaurants, such as Maremma, the Sympathetic Ear, The Hootenanny and Naughty Piglets are also all a short walk away. Both Brixton and Herne Hill are a ten-minute walk away. Herne Hill has a village charm, farmers market, eclectic array of shops and pubs and access to the Thameslink trains. Brixton is first stop on the Victoria line, with the famous Brixton Village serving an array of culinary delights, the Ritzy Cinema and Upstairs private members club just a few of the entertainment spots on offer. The property will appeal to purchasers considering moving to both these in-demand areas. Chain-free.
