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.
