Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market a well-presented two double bedroom flat with private garden, occupying the ground floor of a handsome Victorian terraced house on the sleepy and sought-after Hemberton Road, perfectly located within a few minutes' walk of Clapham, Brixton and Stockwell.

An outstanding example, this home has been lovingly renovated inside and out by the current vendor during the time of ownership, including an extension, transforming the property into a beautifully presented and luxuriously finished haven which truly feels like a home from the moment you walk through the door.

Flooded with natural light from multiple windows, the open-plan reception forms a bright and airy heart of the home, with dimensions to lounge, dine and cook, this appealing room is stylishly finished and ideal for hosting. Grey shaker-style kitchen cabinetry offers a tasteful finish whilst providing ample storage, topped with marbled work surfaces and furnished with all the appliances you need inclusive of a built in dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. Cook and dine in style whilst overlooking the verdant and private pretty walled garden behind, adding to the appealing atmosphere of this fantastic entertaining space.

Double doors allow fresh air to breeze through the room and lead out into the beautiful garden beyond, perfect for a seamless transition to al-fresco dining on the patio, or relaxing amidst greenery from the rear curved seating area, overlooking the low-maintenance astro lawn providing all-year greenery, with beds around the sides currently planted with an array of herbs and fruit to augment your cooking. Separating the bedrooms from the social spaces, a lightwell is accessed from the other side of the reception, a gravelled space ideal for an oasis of pot plants and light features, providing hanging bike storage if required.

The principal bedroom is a grand and spacious double, benefitting from a large bay window, ornate shadow cornicing and an appealing fireplace, complete with double built-in wardrobes, a truly soothing room in which to unwind. Still a double, the second bedroom is adjacent, a calming space peacefully relishing views over the lightwell, featuring a sash window and fitted wardrobes, plus drawers under the built in bed which make the best use of the space and provide ample storage.

The epitome of luxury, the hotel style bathroom is tastefully finished in neutral tones and low level lighting, equipped with both a separate bathtub and opulent walk-in rain shower, thoughtfully designed with well-placed towel hooks, heated towel rain plus storage for a neat finish. Completing this delightful home is a full height cellar extending two thirds of the length of the property, ideal for hiding away those rarely used yet essential belongings, and for the imaginative buyer, provides huge potential for an additional space subject to the necessary permissions. Other properties on the street in the past have used this space for a home gym, a utility room, workshop space or even a sauna!

All in all, this gem of an apartment has tasteful finishes and contemporary design throughout, ideal for a stress- free move. With a versatile layout and fantastic location this property will appeal to a wide range of purchasers and early registration of interest is strongly advised.

Hemberton Road is a quiet and peaceful residential road located moments from the amenities on the direct route between Clapham and Brixton, Landor Road, with Stockwell also a short stroll away. The new purchaser will be spoiled for choice when it comes to transport links; The Northern and Victoria lines plus the Overground are all within walking distance. In the one direction the vibrant and diverse Clapham High Street (five minute walk) offers great nightlife, the green open spaces of Clapham Common and Abbeville Village is also within walking distance. In the other direction there is all Brixton (central Brixton a fourteen-minute walk) has to offer with the extremely popular Brixton Village, large brand shops, Brockwell Park and cracking transport links. This is a gem of a flat that will tick boxes for a wide range of buyers, with the added benefit of friendly neighbours.

Clapham area highlights

There’s something for everyone in Clapham and it draws an eclectic crowd. Clapham Common buzzes with activity and there’s a diverse mix of restaurants, shops, independent boutiques and nightlife, along with some wonderful architecture. The local schools are excellent and the transport options plentiful, with three London Underground (Northern Line) stations in close proximity and frequent London Overground trains from Clapham High Street station. It rarely feels overcrowded here, despite the abundance of things to do, and Clapham endures as one of the most desirable places to live in south London.
