Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market this charming three double-bedroom Victorian house with a South-East facing garden, quietly tucked away on a sought-after residential road, equidistant from Brixton and Herne Hill, with the vast green open spaces of Brockwell Park around the corner.

This bright home balances modern design perfectly with all the charm and character of the era in which it was originally built. The ground floor is perfect for entertaining, hosting family and guests. The dual-aspect reception is a warm, bright and appealing space, with high, corniced ceilings, original floorboards and a large bay window, with generous space to unwind on the sofa or dine around the table with views over the garden beyond. A contemporary kitchen diner with a homely feel sits to the rear, with storage running down both sides to create an ergonomic place to cook, finished with wooden work surfaces and attractive stone flooring, plus an additional dining area for a more casual dining experience, ideal for lazy weekend brunches with the breeze flowing through the French doors to the garden. Precedent has been set on the road should the purchaser wish to seek the necessary permissions to extend into the side return, further increasing this already spacious room.

The private rear garden is a low-maintenance suntrap perfect for savouring the warmer months of the year, with a paved patio area wrapping around the house, leading to a luxurious astro-turf lawn surrounded by planters, ensuring all-year greenery.

The first floor of the home provides three comfortable double bedrooms. The principal room is particularly appealing with a feature fireplace, lighting features, cast iron radiators and significant fitted wardrobe space. A further generous bedroom sits adjacent with garden views, and the third to the rear, still a comfortable double that could also easily be repurposed to suit the needs of the purchaser. A beautiful family-sized bathroom serves this lovely house, boasting a double-ended plunge bath with an overhead shower.

Completing this delightful period home is the butterfly roof with loft space, ideal for storage but with the potential to grow into the home by extending into the space, adding two further bedrooms and another bathroom if desired, subject to permissions, with precedent also already set on the road.

Barnwell Road is a sought-after residential street and runs adjacent to the incredibly popular Poets’ Corner, a highly desirable pocket of roads between Herne Hill and Brixton (approximately an eight-minute walk to both). London Bridge is accessible in twenty-eight minutes, Canary Wharf in thirty-nine minutes and Victoria within twenty minutes, door to door. The celebrated Herne Hill establishments are close by and the restaurants and shops within the lauded Brixton Village, the amenities of the high street and Brixton Station are all within reach. The green, open spaces of Brockwell Park are also at the end of the road, along with its fantastic 1930s Lido.

With Brockwell Park, Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants and Brixton Village all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all potential purchasers. In short, a characterful Victorian terrace house on a popular street, in a sought-after area, only a stone's throw from Brixton and Herne Hill town centres but far enough away to retain a peaceful, neighbourhood feel.

Chain-free and freehold.
