Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market this four bedroom, end-of-terrace Edwardian family home for sale on Torrens Road. Boasting an eclectic mix of original period features and contemporary design with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and substantial living and entertaining space, this charming property will appeal to a wide range of purchasers. Torrens Road is a highly sought-after residential square with low traffic flow and set within the catchment area for both Sudbourne and Corpus Christi Primary Schools, located moments from the amenities of trendy Brixton Hill, a seven-minute walk to the centre of Brixton and ten minutes to Brockwell Park.

The ground floor of this magnificent property has been opened up and thoughtfully arranged to create a bright and enticing yet highly functional home, ideal for spending time with the family or hosting guests, whom an appealing tiled entrance hall will welcome. The dual aspect reception and dining room is packed full of characterful features, high corniced ceilings, wooden floors, a feature fireplace and statement light features all add to the appealing ambience, with plenty of room for a spacious yet cosy lounge plus a large dining table. Leading around into the fully-integrated kitchen, striking blue cabinetry contrasts wonderfully against the wooden flooring and white work surfaces, designed to a layout which provides a sociable cooking environment whilst keeping the dishes tucked away out of direct view, to be attended to later whilst enjoying views over the garden from the picture frame window above the sink.

Large sliding glass doors lead off the dining area and open into the beautiful L-shaped garden, the ideal spot for al-fresco dining and relishing the warmer months, with a lovely patio area, decking, mature planted boarders and palm trees, plus side access for ease of storing bikes or prams in the shed.

Upstairs on the first floor, sit three of the four bedrooms: the slightly smaller bedroom at the front of the property is airy with a bay window and acts as a cycling room for the current vendors but has a multitude of potential uses for the new owners such as an en-suite bathroom, home office or child's bedroom. The two further bedrooms on this floor are generous double bedrooms, one of which enjoys a large sweeping curved bay window with neatly built-in storage whilst the other is currently being utilized as a nursery and home office, with leafy views over the garden below. Completing this floor is a modern family bathroom with a separate shower and a contemporary bathtub nestled under the window. Up a further flight of stairs is the spectacular principal bedroom with multiple skylights and a large picture frame window that come together to create a wonderfully bright atmosphere. Bespoke storage is built into the eaves and a further striking bathroom sits across the hall, accessible for the house or simply kept private for a luxurious upper-floor suite.

Torrens Road forms part of a sought-after neighbourly square tucked quietly away in a residential pocket off Brixton Hill. The house is a ten-minute walk from Brockwell Park, complete with its Lido, gym, café and playground. Two of Brixton’s most sought-after Ofsted-recommended primary schools are on your doorstep, whilst also within a stone’s throw are multiple large brand supermarkets and the cafés, restaurants and local pubs of Brixton Hill. The property benefits from all that Brixton offers, from the celebrated cuisine in Brixton Village to the music venues and nightlife the area is famous for, to the Upstairs Private Members Club. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is within a ten-minute walk, a multitude of buses available on Brixton Hill and Acre Lane are also readily available to whisk you all over the city. In the other direction, purchasers will benefit from everything that Clapham has to offer within a fifteen-minute stroll, the multitude of restaurants and bars and excellent transport links with the Overground at Clapham High Street station and the northern line at Clapham Common. The many pubs, cafes and the market in Herne Hill are all within reach; a pleasant fifteen-minute walk through Brockwell Park. Few properties in the area have as many positive attributes, from the style, secluded road, location and proximity to all the action the area has to offer – this house will tick a lot of boxes for a wide range of purchasers.

Early viewings are recommended. Freehold.
