Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market this stunning two double bedroom split-level maisonette accessed via its own front door and arranged over the top floors of a handsome Victorian conversion. Located just down from the LTN on Shakespeare Road within the highly sought-after Poet's Corner.

An attractive wooden staircase greets you upon entering, winding up throughout the home with natural light streaming through the windows. Arranged over the first floor are the sociable living spaces, spanning the front of the property is a spacious reception and dining room ideal for hosting or unwinding, with large windows and modern downlights finished with wooden flooring. Set to the rear, the kitchen was installed in 2022 and is well-equipped with tasteful grey shaker style cabinetry offering generous storage options. Finished with crisp white worktops and tiling, handy shelving and a lovely butler sink under the window, perfect for dreamily doing the dishes when not using the integrated dishwasher.

Upstairs, both bedrooms are genuine doubles enjoying views of the skyline for added light and privacy, of further benefit they are set to opposing sides of the property and separated by the bathroom, providing a level of privacy desirable for those looking to rent out a room or have regular guests. The principal bedroom is a particularly wonderful room, with two large sash windows framed with wooden shutters and soothingly presented in soft tones with warming carpets. Refurbished in 2021, the bathroom offers storage for a neat finish and boasts double height ceilings with a solar powered window cascading light over the bathtub creating a great ambience for a soak in the bubbles or a relaxing shower.

A loft sits above providing a huge amount of storage keeping this fantastic home free of clutter.

Shakespeare Road is situated in the heart of Poets’ Corner, a highly desirable pocket of residential roads between leafy Herne Hill and vibrant Brixton. Herne Hill station is a six-minute walk with direct access to The City of London in thirty minutes and Victoria within seventeen minutes, door to door. Brixton tube station is a twelve minute walk away, first stop on the Victoria Line which runs 24hrs at the weekends.

The celebrated Herne Hill establishments are close-by and the restaurants and shops within the lauded Brixton Village, the amenities of the high street are a ten-minute stroll. The open spaces of Brockwell Park are at the end of the road, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and fantastic sports facilities. It’s easy to see what makes Poets’ Corner such a popular area.

In short, a stylish home in a sought-after area, only a stone's throw from central Herne Hill and Brixton, but far enough away to retain a sleepy, neighbourhood feel.
