Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market a remarkable four double bedroom, three bathroom period house for sale, located on a quiet and sleepy street between the amenities in Clapham and Brixton. Margate Road is located in a popular residential pocket of pretty Victorian terraces, equidistant to both sought-after locations, and will appeal to purchasers who are contemplating moving to the two areas.

This property has been lovingly modernised and extended by its present owners within recent years, whilst maintaining great sensitivity to the charm of this period, including an appealing tiled entrance hall. The double aspect reception and dining room strikes the perfect balance of original character and contemporary design from the attractive fireplace and corniced ceilings to the modern lighting features and crittall patio door, leading out to the garden and bathing the dining area in natural light.

Adjacent, the contemporary kitchen is newly fitted, fully integrated within sleek grey cabinetry which is complimented with white worktops, inclusive of a sociable breakfast bar for a more casual dining option. Double crittall doors provide an impressive view of the garden, allowing fresh air to breeze through the room with a seamless flow to outdoors, ideal for al-fresco dining.

South –facing, the garden is a wonderful sun trap, edged with planted borders for a low-maintenance oasis, the perfect place in which to unwind with a book or host BBQs throughout the warmer months, worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Spanning the width of the property to the front of the first floor is the principal suite, a luxurious bedroom chamber complete with a spacious walk-through wardrobe leading to an attractive en-suite bathroom. Currently utilised as a delightful nursery, another double bedroom peacefully overlooks the gardens to the rear of the first floor, with a neutral family bathroom adjacent.

A fantastically designed loft extension has created a second spacious suite, a double bedroom with multiple skylights and a second beautifully finished en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. Plus the fourth double bedroom, currently utilised as a generous home office and completing this impeccable home.

With over 1,350 square feet of internal living space, this family home is beautifully light and airy with a beautiful finish throughout, ideal for any purchasers looking to move into their new home hassle-free.

Margate Road, a peaceful road which is highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to both Brixton and Clapham. The bars and restaurants of Acre Lane are a short walk and within an eleven-minute stroll down the road is everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the extremely popular Brixton Village to large brand shops and cracking transport links. The vibrant and diverse Clapham High Street is an eleven-minute walk in the other direction, offering great nightlife and culinary delights. Potential purchasers will benefit from both the Northern Line (Clapham North, Clapham Common and Clapham South tube stations) and the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station). With the wonderful green spaces of Brockwell Park and Clapham Common within easy reach, plus the pretty eateries of Abbeville Village, the location cannot be overstated. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, condition and outside space and the proximity to all of the action the area has to offer.
