Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market a beautifully refurbished five double bedroom Victorian end of terrace house with a landscaped garden. Situated on Spenser Road, within the highly sought-after Poet’s Corner, moments from Brockwell Park in Herne Hill with ease of access to the amenities of Brixton.

Set back from the quiet and neighbourly street, this remarkable home has been thoughtfully refurbished with stunning attention to detail, seamlessly blending a traditional house with contemporary styling to create a sense of pure luxury.

To the front of the property is a wonderful double reception room boasting entertainment shelving, modern down lighting and features reminiscent of period charm such as corniced ceilings and a characterful bay window. Herringbone flooring in warming shades sweeps through to the expansive kitchen, allowing the vast living space to flow seamlessly from front to rear and on into the beautiful garden, creating a fantastic entertaining space. The dine-in kitchen is sure to wow guests, dine in elegance with garden views or cook up a tasty treat in the superb kitchen. Contemporary with heritage nods, the bespoke kitchen integrates appliances and generous storage within shaker-style cabinetry down both sides, topped with white work surfaces and finished with attractive brass fittings. A sociable island enhances the ergonomics of this family hub and provides a breakfast bar for a more casual dining option, a true heart of the home. Completing the interior of this all-encompassing ground floor is a handy W.C. in the welcoming entrance hall.

Crittall style bi-fold doors allow fresh air to breeze through the room and create a continuous transition to the private garden, ideal for hosting al-fresco. This landscaped haven feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city life, with a lush lawn bordered by raised flower beds ready for the purchaser to add their own touches of greenery.

Five double bedrooms are arranged over the first and second floors, neutrally presented with plush carpets to optimise comfort. Two of the bedrooms span the width of the property forming deluxe spaces with a calming yet airy ambience. The three further double bedrooms are all nestled to the rear of the home, enjoying views over the garden. Two conveniently set family bathrooms service the bedrooms, featuring luxurious brass rain showers, set against beautiful marbled tiles. Complete with under sink storage ensuring a neat finish.

Occupying the entirety of the top floor is a spectacular and versatile loft room, ideal for those who require a home office, yet easily repurposed to suit needs such as an artist’s studio or yoga room. This stunning property has been tastefully finished top-to-toe in calming neutral tones with high quality fixtures, ready for a stress-free move, with the potential to add your own decorative touches.

The location is fantastic, with the award winning Brockwell Park at the end of the road, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and sports facilities, it’s easy to see what makes Poets’ Corner such a desirable pocket: Herne Hill station is an eight-minute walk and Central Brixton a seven-minute stroll.
