This appealing property is positioned within close proximity to the rolling greenery of Brockwell Park, sandwiched between Brixton and Herne Hill, whilst also being within the Low Traffic Neighbourhood.

A pretty arched doorway leads into the kitchen, boasting ample storage within white cabinetry, wrapping around to maximise surface space and create an ergonomic environment in which to cook.

Both bedrooms are comfortable doubles with neutral décor, set to differing floors for a desirable level of privacy, suited to those looking for the potential to rent out a room. Peacefully arranged over the top floor, the principal bedroom enjoys the proportions for generous storage options and a desk or dressing table if required, plus a handy storage cupboard next to the en-suite shower room.
