Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market a characterful and appealing five-bedroom Victorian home on the desirable Helix Road, a popular tree-lined street within the lauded Josephine Conservation Area. This sleepy pocket of roads is part of the Low Traffic Network, creating a peaceful and neighbourly environment, just a short stroll from Brockwell Park and the amenities of Brixton and Herne Hill, with local eateries on the doorstep. Measuring up at over 2,000 square feet of internal space with both a garden and roof terrace, this wonderful house is sure to appeal to a wide range of purchasers.

This lovely home is brimming with original features from the moment you step through the stained-glass embellished front door into the grand entrance hallway boasting an attractive Victorian tiled floor. Strikingly impressive, the double reception room forms the heart of the home, boasting high ceilings with luxurious shadow-cornicing, wooden floorboards, two original fireplaces and timber sash windows plus French doors to the rear, leading out to the garden beyond and allowing fresh air to breeze through the room. The contemporary dine-in kitchen is set to the rear, finished to an excellent standard throughout, with sleek white cabinetry neatly integrating appliances and offering generous storage, topped with beautifully deep worktops. Thoughtfully designed to amplify the flow of natural light, the kitchen is a bright and welcoming space in which to cook and enjoy dining at the large table whilst relishing views of the garden. Precedent has been set on the road should the new purchaser wish to seek the necessary permissions to extend into the side return, further expanding this already well-proportioned family kitchen and further increasing the impressive footprint of this home.

Bi-fold doors from the dining area flow seamlessly into the private garden, surrounded by trees and shrubbery this pretty suntrap feels wonderfully secluded, ideal for escaping the bustle of the city. Laid to patio and lawn, this attractive oasis offers the perfect transition to outdoor entertaining whenever the weather permits. Completing the ground floor, there is access to a large cellar which has been tanked, making it ideal for storing away items rarely needed on a daily basis.

To the first floor sits three comfortable double bedrooms, one of which spans the width of the house and features an abundance of Victorian charm including a large bay window and feature fireplace, enhanced for modern living with neatly fitted wardrobes. A delightful family bathroom facilitates the bedrooms on this floor, a luxurious and calming room with a contemporary free-standing bath and walk in rain shower.

Occupying the second floor to the rear is an appealing fourth double bedroom boasting bi-fold doors leading to a splendid roof terrace with leafy views of the garden below. The loft has been converted to create the last - but by no means least! - of the five bedrooms, this vast room measures over eight meters in length and is currently being used as a generous and peaceful home office. Adjacent a further family bathroom completes this magnificent home, neutrally presented with both a bath and overhead shower and finished with attractively large tiling.

Helix Road is a leafy residential street with a true sense of community, a neighbourly road forming part of the low traffic network. This sought-after road is located a short walk to the centre of Brixton offering the culinary delights of Brixton Village and a wide array of cultural entertainment choices whilst also being the first stop on the Victoria line. Moments away is a large supermarket and various cafes, pubs and restaurants, such as Naughty Piglets, Stir Coffee and the Elm Park Tavern. The green, open spaces of Brockwell Park are also a stone’s throw away, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and fantastic sports facilities. The independent eateries and pretty market plus the Thameslink trains in village-esq Herne Hill are a pleasant ten minute stroll through Brockwell Park.

Early registration of interest is advised.
