Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market this unique and characterful four double-bedroom Victorian family home with a South-West facing private manicured garden. Nestled peacefully within the Josephine Avenue conservation area on one of Brixton’s most sought-after residential streets, Leander Road, offering a village-esq, neighbourly feel. Spanning nearly 1800 square feet of internal space this beautiful property will appeal to many purchasers and early registration of interest is advised.

This lovely home is a fantastic mix of period features combined with modern fixtures and high-quality finishes throughout creating a bright and appealing atmosphere from the moment you enter. The entire house was redecorated internally last year and the exterior was repointed in 2021.

The original front door leads into a tessellated Victorian tiled hallway, which feeds into a double-aspect reception and dining room, complete with feature fireplaces, antique cast iron radiators, coving and a bay window with plantation shutters. Double doors lead from the dining room into the un-extended natural slate side return and through to the well-maintained private South West facing garden.

Contemporary and stylish the dine-in kitchen is set to the rear, a large and airy room designed with attention to detail, providing the ideal family hub. A characterful bay window adds to the light and airy atmosphere and there is a sociable, convenient breakfast island with a marble worktop. There are comfortable dimensions for a large dining table, which overlooks the garden, and sliding doors that allow a seamless flow from inside to out. The garden is a heavenly suntrap with mature flower beds, a garden shed and a sizeable patio with a BBQ area.

The tanked cellar offers fantastic storage solutions and is currently used as a functional utility room with white goods.

Arranged over the first floor are three well-proportioned double bedrooms. The principal bedroom is particularly impressive, spanning the entire width of the property with an attractive bay window and bespoke carpentry. Not many houses boast stairs that lead to a fantastic mezzanine level with maple veneered ceilings, skylights and eaves storage. Currently used as a lovely home office, this functional space has a multitude of potential uses and could be repurposed to suit the new owner's search criteria. The further two bedrooms are nestled towards the rear with garden views and a shower room separates the rear bedrooms on the first floor.

Set to the second floor is another spacious double bedroom and a family bathroom with a walk-in shower and a cast iron roll-top bath. Peacefully atop the house, this bedroom is bathed in natural light from multiple Velux windows and views over the neighbouring gardens.

Having multiple rooms, nearly 1800 square feet and unique features means the purchaser will not need to compromise and the layout is flexible to suit a wide range of requirements. This wonderful home also has the added benefit of solar panels on the roof.

Situated on Leander Road, an attractive, quiet road just off Josephine Avenue, this popular street benefits from the low-traffic network. The property is only a short walk away from two of Brixton’s most popular primary schools, the local amenities of vibrant Brixton Hill, the ever-popular Brockwell Park and the fantastic variety of nightlife on offer in central Brixton. With access to the Victoria line at Brixton tube station also within a ten-minute stroll, the location cannot be overstated. All the amenities in Herne Hill are accessible within a fifteen-minute stroll through the park. This is a stunning home that will appeal to so many people.
