Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market a generous and characterful two double-bedroom split-level apartment with a private entrance in a sought-after Victorian school conversion for sale, close to the heart of Brixton. Originally built in the 1850s, this imposing property is steeped in local history, first opened as Brixton Girls’ Orphanage in the late 1800s before being acquired by the Brixton School of Building, and was finally converted into luxury apartments in 1997. This characterful development has been renovated externally in recent years and has a lovely period façade. Once inside the gated grounds, there are beautifully manicured shared gardens and a courtyard with a fish pond, the communal areas are well maintained, plus an allocated off-street parking space and secure bike storage.

Lovingly refurbished by the current owners this maisonette is an outstanding example, split over two levels, this stunning apartment truly feels like a home from the moment you walk through the private entrance door.

Occupying the upper floor, the open-plan reception room offers a real sense of grandeur, measuring over seven meters in length this stunning room has a bright and airy atmosphere, further enhanced by high corniced ceilings and vast windows. To the front, the lounge area is set behind a large recently renovated sash window, framed with original boxed shutters and offering generous proportions in which to unwind or entertain guests. To the rear, the dine-in kitchen is fully integrated behind shaker-style gloss cabinetry offering vast storage and generous worktops which wrap around to create a sociable layout inclusive of a breakfast bar. A large window offers almost floor-to-ceiling leafy views over the surrounding grounds, providing a pleasant outlook to be enjoyed whilst dining at the kitchen table. There is a lovely area directly outside the front door of this property which has bricked planters that creates separation from the rest of the development and a perfect area to relax and enjoy the warmer months.

Both bedrooms are quietly nestled downstairs and are well-appointed doubles, one with convenient built-in storage. The contemporary bathroom sits adjacent, with a modern walk-in rain shower and storage, whilst further under-stair storage in the hallway completes the interior of this charming property.

Due to the secure and beautiful surroundings, the friendly community, period features and the unique characteristics of this magnificent two-bedroom maisonette, this home will tick boxes for a wide range of purchasers. The property benefits from an unrivalled location: just a stone’s throw from Brixton tube station (start of the Victoria Line), as well as the restaurants, bars and cafes that make up the culinary Mecca of vibrant Atlantic Road and Coldharbour Lane. With both Brixton Village and Pop Brixton also on the doorstep, purchasers will be able to sample a different cuisine every night of the week, or socialise in style at the Upstairs Private members club after enjoying a film at The Ritzy or Whirled cinemas. The beautiful greenery of Brockwell Park and its 1930s Lido are also within walking distance, plus the amenities and transport links of Loughborough Junction with direct trains to Blackfriars, Farringdon and Kings Cross/St Pancras.
