Property details

Recently refreshed, this spacious three double bedroom, two bathroom split-level flat occupies the upper floors of one of the handsome Victorian terraces on Maplestead Road, a popular neighbourly street, perfectly located for the amenities and transport links in central Brixton, Streatham Hill and Herne Hill, a stone’s throw from the green spaces of Holmewood Gardens. Measuring up at almost 950 square feet of internal space, this beautifully airy apartment will appeal to a wide range of purchasers.

Spanning the width of the first floor is an expansive open-plan reception room offering ample space to cook, dine and unwind, tastefully finished with modern parquet flooring, high ceilings and a bay window which floods the room in natural light. Boasting a sociable layout the contemporary kitchen is well-equipped with mod-cons neatly integrated within gloss cabinetry. Generous worktop space and feature lighting make this hub of the home the ideal place to entertain family and friends.

Adjacent sits the first of the three double bedrooms, a considerate layout ensures that all three bedrooms are nestled away from the street, with each conveniently situated next to a bathroom whilst also being separated from one another to allow a level of privacy, making this sizeable home perfect for sharers and those wishing to rent out a room or two. Occupying the first and second floor, both bedrooms to the rear of the property are particularly large, with built-in storage and leafy views over the gardens below.

This wonderful flat is completed with two stylish bathrooms, both neutrally decorated, the first is furnished with a step-in shower and doubles as a laundry room, keeping the whirr of the washer away from the sociable spaces. Offering a statement bathtub and rain head shower the second bathroom resides on the upper floor and provides access into the loft. Currently used for storage and ideal for hiding away those items not used on a daily basis, the new owner could potentially extend into this space, subject to the necessary permissions.

Maplestead Road is a quiet residential street located moments from a large garden square, the area is highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to multiple areas. The amenities of Brixton Hill are a twelve-minute stroll with central Brixton, Brixton Village, The Ritzy and the start of the Victoria line in easy reach. A ten minute walk brings you to Brockwell Park, continue a pleasant amble through the park to reach Herne Hill a further ten minutes away. In the other direction, Streatham Hill high street is an eleven- minute walk, with its multitude of restaurants and bars and direct trains into Clapham Junction, Victoria and London Bridge. Having the South Circular nearby the location is also perfect for those with a vehicle, or simply hop on one of the many day and night buses that whisk your down Brixton Hill, over to Clapham or into the city beyond.
