Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market this unique and incomparable five double bedroom Victorian family home with the rarity of extensive gardens and a fantastic kitchen extension. Nestled peacefully on one of Brixton’s most sought-after residential streets, Fairmount Road, offering a village-esq, neighbourly feel. Spanning over 2,400 square feet of internal space this exceptional property will appeal to many purchasers, early registration of interest is advised.

This beautiful home has been fully extended and strikes the ideal balance of period features combined with modern fixtures and high quality finishes throughout to create an appealing ambience from the moment you enter. The ground floor comprises a cosy reception room, convenient WC, stunning rear open-plan dine-in kitchen, a separate utility room and side access with an additional entrance. To the front of the home, the reception room displays charming Victorian character with high, shadow corniced ceilings and original fireplace, a grand yet cosy retreat perfect for relaxing. Flowing through into the second entrance hallway, a well- equipped utility room leads off the hall, neatly and quietly separating the laundry from the remainder of the home, a downstairs WC ideal for visiting guests sits adjacent.

Contemporary and stylish the dine-in kitchen is set to the rear, a large and airy room designed with immaculate attention to detail, providing the ideal family hub. A characterful blue shaker kitchen is complete with high-end appliances including a range cooker, butler sink, abundant storage options and a sociable breakfast island. There are comfortable dimensions for a large dining table and multiple skylights running the length of the room add to the appealing atmosphere, further enhanced by the wood burning stove and wooden chevron parquet flooring. Adding yet more wow-factor a crittall-style glass wall frames the garden, sliding open to allow a seamless flow onto the patio.

The garden is vast, a heavenly suntrap, wrapping around and measuring around 130’, with a wealth of mature lawns, flora and fauna and a sizeable patio and BBQ area. This garden would be no less a wonder in deepest Cornwall, this is perhaps the best environment we have seen to raise a family country-style while still in the city. All services including drains run to the end of the garden in case a studio or garden room is desired in the future.

Arranged over the first floor are three well-proportioned double bedrooms. One being particularly impressive, spanning the entire width of the property and boasting an attractive bay window. The further two bedrooms are nestled towards the rear with garden views, one of which is currently being utilised as a home office. A tastefully decorated family bathroom with a bathtub separates the rear bedrooms.

Set to the second floor are two further double bedrooms which share a modern bathroom with walk-in shower. Peacefully atop the house the largest bedroom is bathed in natural light from multiple Velux windows and a Juliet balcony boasting views over the stunning extension and gardens.

Having multiple rooms, well over 2,000 square feet, and unique features means the purchaser will not need to compromise and spaces can be re-purposed to suit requirements. This wonderful home also has the added benefit of further storage in the cellar.

Situated on Fairmount Road, an attractive, quiet road just off Brixton Hill, this popular street benefits from a quiet setting as the road wraps around onto Beechdale Road, which results in no through traffic, only allowing access to these particular houses on these two desirable roads.
