Property details

Keating Estates are delighted to offer to market an appealing two double bedroom flat, arranged over the first floor of a handsome Victorian terrace on the highly sought-after Holmewood Road. The property is situated within a quiet residential pocket of Brixton Hill, on a no-through road adjacent to a beautiful garden square and has easy access to central Brixton, Streatham Hill, Balham and Clapham.

Set to the front of the property, the open-plan reception forms a light and airy heart of the home, with large South-West facing windows including a bay, plus generous dimensions to lounge, dine and cook. This appealing room is neutrally yet stylishly finished with wood effect low-maintenance flooring, downlighting and built in shelving. To one end, the kitchen is fully integrated, offering ample storage within sleek and contemporary cabinetry, the ideal kitchen in which to cook up a tasty treat in this sociable room, plus dine in comfort with the space for a large dining table.

Peacefully nestled to the rear of the property relishing views of the neighbouring gardens below, both bedrooms are doubles with the same tastefully neutral décor as the rest of this beautiful home. The principal bedroom features dual-aspect windows for a bright yet soothing ambience, whilst the second bedroom is currently being used as a generous home office and guest room with desk, bed and triple wardrobes, yet is easily repurposed back into a rentable double bedroom should the new purchaser prefer. Of further appeal for sharers, the bedrooms are set apart from one another for an added level of privacy. The bathroom sits adjacent to the principal bedroom, equipped with a bathtub plus overhead shower, finished with storage and a heated towel rail.

Overall this attractive home has tasteful finishes with the potential to add your own decorative flare over time, plus a versatile layout, friendly neighbours and a fantastic location. The property will appeal to a wide range of purchasers, including first time buyers.

Situated on friendly and neighbourly road, the local residents are brought together by the green open spaces of Holmewood Gardens just a few doors down. Tucked just off Brixton Hill, it’s perfectly positioned for anyone wanting to be close to the action, yet far enough away to retain a sense of calm with a local pub and large brand supermarket both within a couple of minutes’ stroll. A fifteen-minute walk down Brixton Hill brings you to all the fun of Brixton's vast array of restaurants, cafes and dynamic nightlife and start of the Victoria Line at the tube station. In the other direction, Streatham Hill is just a seven-minute stroll, with its own trendy offerings of nearby bars, cafes and restaurants, plus trains to London Bridge and Victoria. The property has access to the extensive bus network on Brixton Hill just seconds away, with multiple day and night buses whisking you down the hill to Brixton in under five minutes and on into central London and beyond. In additional to the local park at Holmewood Gardens, Brockwell Park, Tooting and Balham Common, and Clapham Common are all within walking distance. Having the South Circular nearby and the option for on-street permit parking the location is also great for those with a vehicle.
