Property details

Keating Estates are delighted to present to market this impressive five double bedroom, two bathroom Victorian family home, nestled on Strathleven Road an attractive residential street within the Low Traffic Neighbourhood. This immaculate home is within the catchment areas for Sudbourne and Corpus Christi schools, a short equidistant walk to both Clapham and Brixton High Streets, with local amenities and eateries on the doorstep.

Fully extended, this beautiful home has been lovingly cared for by the current owners and strikes an ideal balance of period features combined with modern fixtures and high quality finishes to create an appealing ambience from the moment you enter. The ground floor comprises a dual-aspect reception, running through into a splendid rear open-plan dine-in kitchen plus a convenient downstairs W.C. The double reception is a stunning space, perfect for entertaining or relaxing in front of the attractive Victorian fireplace, displaying further charming character with high ceilings and a large bay window dressed with plantation shutters. Polished wooden floorboards run the length of the room, sweeping through to the dine-in kitchen, creating a beautiful flow to the ground floor whilst bouncing natural light from front and rear.

Stylish and contemporary the dine-in kitchen is sleek, a large and airy room with built-in speakers and pretty garden views, providing the ideal family hub or entertainment space. The integrated kitchen is complete with a range cooker, free-standing fridge freezer, abundant storage options and sociable breakfast island. There are comfortable dimensions for a large dining table below multiple skylights which run the length of the room, adding to the bright atmosphere. Floor to ceiling glass doors span the width of the room, bi-folding out to allow a seamless transition into to the private garden.

The exceptional garden has been well-nurtured and thoughtfully designed, feeling worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Fauna and flora, including palm trees create a leafy green border surrounding an attractively low-maintenance decked area with rear bench, providing the ideal sunny spot in which to unwind with a book or dine al-fresco throughout the warmer months.

Arranged over the first floor are three well-proportioned double bedrooms. One being particularly impressive, spanning the entire width of the property, boasting an attractive bay window and built-in wardrobes. The further two bedrooms are nestled towards the rear with leafy views. A tastefully decorated family-sized bathroom separates the rear bedrooms, complete with double sinks, integrated speakers and a bathtub with overhead rain shower.

The second floor comprises the fourth and fifth bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes and serviced by an additional bathroom. Peacefully atop the house the larger of these bedrooms is bathed in natural light from multiple windows and has access to the eaves, ideal for storing away those essential yet rarely used belongings.

Tastefully finished top-to-toe with a wonderfully low-maintenance garden, this stunning home is ready to move into straight away, ideal for a stress-free move and appealing to a wide range of purchasers, early registration of interest is advised.

The location is excellent. Strathleven Road is sandwiched between Brixton and Clapham on a residential street with large supermarkets just around the corner including Tesco, Lidl and Sainsbury’s. Acre Lane is just at the end of the street, and has gained huge popularity in recent years. Purchasers will enjoy having neighbourhood favourites such as Blank Coffee, Knife and the Hope & Anchor close by, as well as the Instagram favourite bakery - Aries Bakehouse - just moments away.

All that fun and vibrant central Brixton has to offer is a ten-minute stroll down the road, from music venues and the ever-popular Brixton Village, to POP Brixton, The Ritzy Cinema, The Upstairs Private Members Club and more. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton station makes travelling into central London and beyond a breeze, with the additional option of trains. Equidistant in the other direction is Clapham High Street with its fantastic shopping, eateries and nightlife, as well as the Northern Line and Overground transport links. The upmarket establishments of Abbeville Village and Clapham Old Town are also a short stroll away, as are the green open spaces of Clapham Common and Brockwell Park.

If all this weren’t enough the property is also within the catchment areas for the Ofsted Outstanding Sudbourne and Corpus Christi schools, and forms part of the Low Traffic Neighbourhood with a no-entry at the top of the road, vastly reducing traffic flow.
