Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market this spacious three double bedroom flat with a garden and parking, quietly tucked away within a Victorian conversion on the leafy and desirable Helix Gardens.

Set within the Josephine Avenue conservation area, behind long, peaceful gardens, with nearly 1,200 square feet of internal floor space, this three double bedroom conversion flat is quietly tucked away on Helix Gardens, in one of the most popular residential pockets of Brixton. To the front of the property is a well-maintained and leafy shared garden, a lovely vast outdoor space that feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city life. There is also the superb and rare benefit of an off-street parking space.

The elevated setting over the upper floors ensures additional privacy and light, resulting in a bright ambience, ideal for soaking up blue skies and incredible sunsets. Positioned to overlook Helix Gardens to the front and backing onto everyone else’s gardens to the rear this particular apartment is surrounded by greenery creating a wonderfully soothing home.

Forming the heart of the home, the double aspect reception and dine-in kitchen boasts sizeable proportions, a fantastic room with characterful wooden floors, exposed brickwork and views out of the large sash windows over the treetops. Dine in style with friends, or unwind on the sofa with sundowners after cooking up a treat in the wrap-around kitchen, equipped with generous storage and integrated appliances in grey shaker style cabinets.

All three bedrooms are doubles, set to opposing ends and levels of the property for maximum privacy, suited to those looking for the potential to rent out a room or two. Spanning the width of the property, the principal bedroom is particularly large, peacefully nestled over the top floor with stunning views and built-in storage options. The bathroom is conveniently set in the middle of the home, tastefully finished and complete with a bathtub for those moments only a soak in the bubbles will do.

Beyond the off-street parking spot is a glorious garden, bordered by hedges to create an enclosed gated haven, zoned into areas of patio, lawn with a second grassy area to the rear. The perfect suntrap for enjoying a book, hosting BBQs or simply catching up with a friendly neighbour with whom this large space is shared.

All in all, there are not many apartments on the market of this size, with a beautiful shared garden and off-street parking in such a desirable location.

Helix Gardens is part of the Josephine Avenue conservation area; a pocket of roads which are highly sought after for their character, aesthetic and proximity to Brockwell Park, Brixton, Herne Hill and beyond. The property is perfectly situated with a supermarket at either end of the road and the pubs, bars and restaurants of Brixton Hill and Effra Road are a five minute walk. The property benefits from all that Brixton offers, from the celebrated cuisine within Brixton Village to the music venues and nightlife the area is famous for and first stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station all within a ten minute walk. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, secluded feel, size, outside space, storage and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer.

Early registration of interest is advised.
