Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market an extremely spacious two double bedroom split-level top floor apartment for sale, situated in a sympathetically converted classic Victorian town house in a sought after quiet residential road, which rarely come to market. This fantastic property will appeal to a wide range of purchasers, with easy access to excellent bus and tube routes into central London and nearby green spaces including the ever-popular Brockwell Park and Clapham Common.

This wonderfully spacious property measures over 1,000 square feet of internal living space, offering dimensions large enough to easily convert into three double bedrooms by portioning part of the large open-plan living space still leaving a substantial reception room. Boasting a bright ambience due to the elevated position atop the building whilst also being split over various levels, this beautifully presented flat truly feels like a home from the moment you enter. Lovingly cared for by the current owner, the apartment has been updated and redecorated in neutral colours throughout, and is presented in immaculate condition, ready for new owners to move and settle in immediately.

Forming the heart of the home, the stunning open-plan living area is vast, with dual-aspect natural light flooding the space plus endearing characteristics such as the feature fireplace and wooden sash windows. Set to the front, are the generous lounge and dining areas, relishing the leafy views which are iconic to Josephine Avenue, ideal for hosting dinner parties and entertaining guests. This fabulous space wraps around in an “L” shape, flowing through to the contemporary kitchen, which benefits from sleek white cabinetry and abundant storage options, including space for a secondary more casual dining option should the new purchaser desire.

Nestled peacefully at the rear is one of the two double bedrooms, beautifully finished with great proportions and enjoying views over the gardens below. Adjacent, a family sized modern bathroom is neutrally decorated and equipped with both shower and bath. The second bedroom is arranged over the third floor, a particularly bright and spacious ‘loft-style’ room complete with significant built-in clothes storage, plus access to further eaves storage ideal for hiding away those essential items not used on a daily basis. Having this much space on offer allows for the purchaser to repurpose certain spaces to suit their needs.

The location is fantastic, set within the Josephine conservation area on the sought-after Josephine Avenue. The local amenities on Brixton Hill including shops, restaurants and bars are just a couple of minutes’ walk away, and the property offers the benefit of being in close proximity to vibrant central Brixton whilst sufficiently distant from its busy high street activities and noise, ideal for anyone who wants to be close to the action while maintaining a sense of calm. The new owner will have the best of both worlds, with everything on offer in the hustle and bustle of central Brixton just a ten-minute stroll away, yet will be able to retire to the quieter, village-like community that has been developed around Brixton Hill. Brockwell Park is just two-minutes from the end of the road, leading you into sleepier Herne Hill for a stroll around the Sunday market. In the other direction, the popular establishments of Abbeville Village are an eighteen minute walk away, with Clapham High Street, Old Town and the Common just a few minutes further.

First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is only a ten-minute walk, whisking you into central London and the City within a few minutes, as well as the regular day and night bus options at the end of the avenue.

Chain-free. Early registration of interest advised.

Brixton area highlights

Brixton is a melting pot of culture, cuisine and creativity. An explosion of inventive, new restaurants, pop-ups, fashion stores and art galleries sit alongside the many great pubs, music venues and nightclubs that have been around for years. Transport links are excellent, with London Underground (Victoria Line) trains reaching central London in 12 minutes. If you’re craving green space, Brockwell Park and its famed Art Deco lido are close by. Brixton brings together all the best things about London and is one of the most vibrant and diverse places to live south of the river.
