This wonderful home has been lovingly cared for by the current owners, including recent refurbishment works, and benefits from a high standard of fittings throughout. Beta Place is a highly sought-after residential community quietly tucked away within extensive grounds, close to both Clapham and Brixton centres and attracting purchasers contemplating moving to all both of these in-demand areas.

Split over multiple floors, this beautifully spacious apartment boasts proportions similar to many houses in the area with almost 1,600 square feet of internal living space on offer with an abundance of built-in storage. A truly idyllic heart of the home is the stunning open plan reception room, with neutral yet characterful décor amplifying the feeling of space and creating a light and airy atmosphere, contributed to by the double-height ceilings to one side, with panes of glass reaching into the heights and flooding the room with natural light. With significant space to lounge, cook and dine, this beautiful room offers a versatile layout and is sure to impress guests- tasteful white flooring, a brickwork feature wall and textured ceilings create a calming environment, perfect for retreating away from the bustle of the city. The contemporary kitchen is flooded with sunlight from above, with mod-cons integrated within sleek cabinetry, this sociable kitchen offers ample storage space and generous worktops, a heaven for even the most ambitious of chefs. Two sets of shuttered French doors lead onto the terrace and allow fresh air to breeze through the room. One of only two properties with private outside space in the building, this penthouse is particularly blessed with a sprawling private roof terrace offering approximately 1,000 square feet of impressive outside space with 360 degree views across London and its landmarks.

A modern staircase leads up the principal bedroom, a large suite enjoying spectacular panoramic views across the city, ideal for watch the clouds roll by in the day and the city lights twinkle once the sun sets. Characterful beams lead through to neat built-in wardrobes to one end, with a stylish en-suite wet room to the other. Allowing a desirable level of privacy, a separate stairwell to the opposing side of the property leads to the second bedroom and bathroom. Thoughtfully configured, the second bedroom features a raised bed, built-in wardrobes and storage, with a seating area and space for a desk or dressing table. Finishing the interior of this appealing home is the luxurious bathroom, the pure lines of the contemporary double sinks pop against mirrored radiators and storage, whilst a raised stand-alone bathtub contrasts beautifully against the feature tiling, allowing the new purchaser to relax in style with an atmosphere enhanced by feature lighting options, adding further vibrancy to this stunning room.

Of further benefit, an allocated off-street parking space is provided within the gates of this pet-friendly development which also boasts extensive communal gardens, a nighbourly atmosphere and an on-site gym and sauna, ideal for keeping your body looking and feeling as good as your new apartment!

Clapham area highlights

There’s something for everyone in Clapham and it draws an eclectic crowd. Clapham Common buzzes with activity and there’s a diverse mix of restaurants, shops, independent boutiques and nightlife, along with some wonderful architecture. The local schools are excellent and the transport options plentiful, with three London Underground (Northern Line) stations in close proximity and frequent London Overground trains from Clapham High Street station. It rarely feels overcrowded here, despite the abundance of things to do, and Clapham endures as one of the most desirable places to live in south London.
