Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market this appealing two double bedroom apartment arranged over the top floors of a Victorian conversion. Located on the desirable Shakespeare Road with Brockwell Park and Lido at the top of the street.

Spanning the front of the property is a spacious open-plan reception ideal for hosting or unwinding, with large windows and modern downlights finished with modern wooden flooring. This lovely room has space for a dining table and boasts an impressive feature fireplace. Set neatly to one end, not interrupting the flow of light, the kitchen is sleek and contemporary with tasteful cabinetry offering ample storage options and integrating appliances. With crisp black worktops and lighting features this is a lovely space in which to cook.

Both bedrooms are genuine doubles, set to differing points 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. Neutrally presented the modern bathroom offers storage for a neat finish and features a large walk-in shower.

Last but by no means least, a loft sits above providing a huge amount of storage, keeping this fantastic home free of clutter. Precedent has also been set on the street should the purchaser wish to seek the necessary permissions to extend into the loft in the future.

Shakespeare Road forms part of a highly desirable pocket of residential roads between leafy Herne Hill and vibrant Brixton. Herne Hill station is a ten-minute walk with direct access to The City of London in thirty minutes and Victoria within twenty minutes, door to door. With Parissi en-route for a tasty morning coffee, Brixton tube station is within strolling distance, first stop on the Victoria Line which runs 24hrs at the weekends.

The celebrated Herne Hill establishments and market are close-by and the restaurants and shops within the lauded Brixton Village, plus the amenities and nightlife of central Brixton are within walking distance. The open spaces of Brockwell Park are at the end of the road, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and fantastic sports facilities. With something on offer to cater for all tastes, it’s easy to see what makes this such a popular area.

In short, a stylish home with the potential to extend 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.
