With the same leafy views, the principal bedroom is a particularly large double, with hanging rails and shelving already in place. A quietly peaceful space in which to relax to the sound of the birds in the gardens and park below. Rare for period conversions, the second bedroom is also a well-proportioned double, set to the opposing side of the home to allow a desirable level of privacy for both bedrooms.
Ideal for a soak in the bubbles after a jog around the park, the bathroom is equipped with a bath plus overhead rain shower, plus a heated towel rail and undersink storage. Completing the interior of this lovely home is the large and impactful entrance hall offering a bright welcome with plenty of space for further storage of daily items, or indeed a desk or dining table. For those lesser used belongings, a huge loft sits above which is owned under the freehold, providing the potential to extend subject to the necessary permissions.
If all this weren’t enough, the cherry on the cake is your own private section of the large South-facing garden, which remains unfenced as one beautifully open space, ideal for hosting BBQs or enjoying a spot of gardening in the warmer months.
The location is fantastic, with the award winning Brockwell Park behind, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and sports facilities, it’s easy to see what makes this such a desirable residential pocket: Herne Hill station is an eight-minute walk and Central Brixton a nine-minute stroll.
