Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market an appealing two double-bedroom apartment with a private terrace on the popular Barnwell Road. This delightful property is positioned equidistant to both Brixton and Herne Hill, within close proximity to Brockwell Park.

Lovingly cared for by the current vendors, this attractive home was fully renovated at the end of 2021, inclusive of a full cosmetic renovation and decoration, new floors throughout (very well insulated), brand new kitchen, bathroom, and new appliances throughout.

Measuring over six meters in length, the open plan reception room is an inviting heart of the home, bright and airy with dual aspect windows. The contemporary kitchen has generous storage on offer within blue shaker style cabinetry whilst a thoughtfully located breakfast bar allows dining with leafy views, creating separation between lounge and kitchen whilst enhancing the sociable vibe. Double patio doors lead from the comfortable lounge to the terrace, allowing fresh air to breeze through the room. Incredibly private, the terrace gets the sun from mid-morning to sunset in the summer, great for growing tomatoes or evening hosting with sundowners.

Neutrally presented, both bedrooms are spacious doubles, one currently being utilised as a generous home office, yet easily repurposed back into a second double bedroom. The bathroom is unusually big and bright, luxuriously presented with well-considered storage, a heated towel rail and a double-ended bath, complete with overhead showers, perfect for a relaxing soak in the bubbles. Of further benefit, there is sole access to two spacious lofts, ideal for storing away those rarely used belongings, keeping the flat neat and tidy.

Barnwell Road is a lovely, quiet, residential area. There's an annual street party and lovely Koala coffee at the end of the road, beside the resident-maintained parklet. Brockwell Park with its amazing lido, gym and cafe among its myriad attractions is just a five-minute stroll away and a large Sainsbury’s is just three minutes further. Various cafes, pubs and restaurants, such as Maremma, the Sympathetic Ear, The Hootenanny and Naughty Piglets are also all a short walk away. Both Brixton and Herne Hill are a ten-minute walk. Herne Hill has a village charm, a farmers market, an eclectic array of shops and pubs and access to the Thameslink trains. Brixton is first stop on the Victoria line, with the famous Brixton Village serving an array of culinary delights, the Ritzy Cinema and Upstairs private members club just a few of the entertainment spots on offer. The property will appeal to purchasers considering moving to both these in-demand areas.

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.
