Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market this immaculate four bedroom extended family home for sale, a beautiful example of a Victorian terraced townhouse on the desirable Talma Road, an attractive residential no-through road and one of Brixton’s most sought-after residential streets, quietly nestled between Brixton, Brockwell Park and Herne Hill.

Lovingly renovated with thoughtful attention to detail, period features have been retained and combined with contemporary touches to create a rustic yet elegant home with high quality finishes throughout. The ground floor comprises a dual-aspect reception and a stunning extended rear kitchen. On entering the house, charming Victorian character is immediately displayed with high, corniced ceilings. The double reception follows suit, a grand and equally impressive space, perfect for entertaining or relaxing and unwinding in front of the working fireplace. The large bay window adds character, framed with wooden shutters whilst flooding the room with natural light, whilst original wooden floors and intricate ceiling detail with contemporary light features add to the ambience of the space. The rear reception room has been opened out to encompass the characterful staircase and allowing further light flow, whilst double doors allow the reception rooms to be separated for a cosier feel.

The wonderfully stylish and rustic kitchen that follows on demonstrates how perfectly the current owners have married charming period character with modern design. The large and airy room is designed with immaculate attention to detail, providing the ideal family hub. A fully integrated kitchen is complete with high-end appliances, abundant storage options and an appealing parquet floor. There is comfortable dimensions for a large dining table and an impressive light well running the length of the room adding to the appealing atmosphere. French glass doors allow a seamless flow out to the rear private garden. A West-facing suntrap, with additional privacy and sunlight due to the lack of houses behind, the garden is a glorious low-maintenance leafy spot, currently with a decked area and sumptuous astro turf creating easy greenery to be relished all year round.

Arranged over the first floor, are two of the four bedrooms and an impressive family bathroom. Both double bedrooms are in keeping with the grandeur of the downstairs with wooden flooring and feature fireplaces, the principle bedroom spans the width of the house, complete with built-in wardrobes, whilst the second double bedroom is currently arranged as sophisticated home office, enjoying views over the garden behind. Sharing the same leafy views from a traditional free-standing bathtub, the decadent family bathroom has attractive cabinetry and a separate walk-in shower nooked neatly behind the door.

Arranged over the upper floor are the third and fourth double bedrooms, both neutrally presented with contemporary herringbone floors. Cleverly designed, the bedroom spanning the front of the house has two built in beds, with integrated shelving storage access into the eaves beyond. A second family bathroom serves this floor, equally as luxurious with a contemporary black airing cupboard enclosing the walk-in shower.

Talma Road is arguably Brixton’s most desirable road, part of the low traffic network and perfectly positioned between Brixton and Herne Hill, with Brockwell Park nearby and no houses overlooking this side of the road from the rear. Brixton tube station is a six-minute walk and Herne Hill station is a ten-minute stroll. London Bridge is accessible in twenty-eight minutes, Canary Wharf in thirty-nine minutes and Victoria within twenty-one minutes, door to door. The celebrated Herne Hill establishments and Sunday market are close-by, as are the restaurants and shops within the lauded Brixton Village, the amenities on Brixton High Street, including the Ritzy cinema and The Upstairs Private Members Club. Having access to a green space is now more important than ever for our wellbeing and with the lush, open spaces of the award-winning Brockwell Park just a seven minute walk away, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and unrivaled sports facilities. With Brockwell Park, Brixton Village, POP Brixton and Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants all on your doorstep, there really is something to cater for everyone.

Early registration of interest is advised.
