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.Brixton area guide

Keating Estates are proud to present to market this wonderful two double bedroom garden flat, a fantastic example of what can be done when one of these handsome Victorian townhouses is converted and refurbished with care and attention to detail. Arranged over the ground floor of a period house on Brailsford Road, a desirable and leafy residential road next to Brockwell Park, the property benefits from a quiet, cul-de-sac setting and a real sense of community. This attractive space has been lovingly renovated to a high standard throughout, and benefits from an abundance of natural light that promotes an incredibly airy atmosphere. With the amenities of both Brixton and Herne Hill nearby, this stunning property will appeal to purchasers who are contemplating moving to both of these sought-after locations; with a varied array of eateries on the doorstep plus a gate into Brockwell Park in under ten seconds.
The heart of the home is the stunning open-plan, dual-aspect room at the rear of the property. High ceilings, electric skylights, a lightwell and glass bi-folding doors create a beautifully airy and bright atmosphere within this entertaining space. A stylish and comfortable lounge occupies one half of the room, followed by a contemporary, tastefully finished kitchen, complete with a breakfast bar, neat white cabinets and a stylish wooden worktop with a blue finish. There is an abundance of storage options, plenty of space for a large dining table and the room opens straight out onto an appealing, wrap around garden. The low-maintenance outside space has been tiled into an attractive terrace with planters adding greenery to create a pretty oasis to be relished instantly the moment the sun appears, making this flat ideal for getting the most out of the British summer with al-fresco dining and hosting. There is also the added benefit of a gate into Brockwell Park less than a ten-second stroll from the front door, providing a second outdoor haven on your doorstep.
The two double bedrooms are both large, a rarity for period conversions, and located at different points of the property, this separation provides a level of privacy making the flat perfect for anyone looking to rent out a bedroom or share with friends. Both bedrooms have space for significantly sized wardrobes, plush carpets and neutral décor; one benefits from a sash bay window and a Victorian fireplace with an electricity supply for a light feature, adding endearing character. The second is peacefully positioned overlooking the garden with French doors leading out, ideal for leisurely weekend lie-ins. A sleek modern bathroom with both bath and shower completes this property which also comes with access to a cellar, ideal for storing away those items not used on a regular basis.
Lovingly renovated by the current owners, the property has a high standard of fixtures and fittings throughout, plus further luxurious benefits including underfloor heating in the living room, kitchen and bathroom and soundproofing in the ceilings creating a peaceful ambience.
As far as locations go, it doesn’t get much better. Brailsford Road is a quiet and desriable leafy street located a ten minute walk to Brixton tube station, and has the fantastic benefit of an entrance to Brockwell Park at the top of the road. The beautiful greenery of this award winning park will not disappoint, along with its iconic 1930s Lido, excellent sports facilities, popular café and more. Brailsford Road is an easy ten minute walk to the centre of Brixton, whilst a large supermarket, and various local heroes such as Brockwell Blend, The Hootenanny, Maremma and Naughty Piglets are also right on your doorstep. The amenities in leafy Herne Hill are also a pleasant ten minute stroll through Brockwell Park, and the property will appeal to purchasers considering moving to both of these in-demand areas. Early registration of interest is strongly advised.
