Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market this fantastic two double bedroom, split-level garden flat. Arranged over the ground floors of a semi-detached period house on Bedford Road, a short walk to the amenities and transport links of Clapham High Street.

With a multitude of selling points, this well-located property has been lovingly refurbished during the time of ownership and will tick boxes for a lot of purchasers. Over 920 square feet of internal space has been utilized tactfully, creating the spacious and characterful feel of a true home.

Forming the heart of the home a sizeable semi-open plan reception room is set to the raised ground floor, bathed in natural light though sash windows front and back, including original characterful box shutters. High, corniced ceilings add to the bright and airy ambience, with engineered wooden flooring running throughout this sociable room. Lounge in style in front of the feature fireplace, after hosting dinner around the table. The Howdens kitchen wraps around with shaker style cabinetry providing ample storage and an integrated fridge and freezer, topped with generous worktops which transition into a breakfast bar for a more casual dining experience. This fantastic kitchen is a lovely space in which to cook, further enhanced by under unit lighting, a plinth heater and double butler sink under the window with leafy garden views.

Stairs lead down to a landing with garden access and the first of the bathrooms, a conveniently located shower room ideal for visiting guests, busy morning routines and daytime use, complete with underfloor heating for toasty toes all year round.

A beautiful oasis of palms and shrubbery, the private landscaped garden is a low-maintenance haven with decking, and paved seating areas. This stunning outside spot is perfect for al-fresco hosting or simply reading a book in the sunshine. For those with green fingers, there are also allotments to the rear of the garden with the option to apply for a plot.

A side access gate to the garden is a huge bonus, ideal for those with bikes with the added benefit of a timber bike shed nestled to one side of the garden, plus a timber bunker for garden tools.

Back inside, further stairs lead down to both of the spacious double bedrooms, with views across the garden one of the bedroom enjoys a particularly tranquil setting, with fitted wardrobes and further integrated storage for a tidy finish. The larger of the bedrooms is nestled behind shuttered windows, with the proportions to accommodate a desk or dressing table in addition to the traditional bedroom furnishings, finished with plush carpets. Servicing the bedrooms, the main bathroom features a double-ended bathtub plus overhead shower, complete with a contemporary feature wall, with back-lit mirror, modern sink and well-considered storage.

Completing this floor is hallway storage and a handy utility room with space for a washing machine and dryer, keeping the laundry quietly tucked away. Of further benefit to this stunning home the boiler was replaced three years ago with annual service and the property has had new radiators and distribution board.

The location is great, close enough to both Clapham and Brixton to enjoy all the benefits that these in-demand areas have to offer. The new owners will benefit from the amenities on Clapham High Street, a short walk to the boutique shops, cafes and restaurants in Clapham Old Town and Abbeville Village. The weekend market and restaurants on Venn Street and all within reach and the local transport links are second to none. Clapham High Street Station, Clapham Common and Clapham North tube stations (Northern Line) are all close-by, coupled with excellent local bus services and the Super Cycle Highway through Clapham which provides quick and easy access into the City, West End and Canary Wharf.

In the other direction the cafes, bars and restaurants of Brixton are all within a ten-minute stroll, with Brixton Village, POP Brixton, The Ritzy Cinema and The Upstairs Private Members Club all at your fingertips. First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station offers a fantastic route into central London and last but not least, the green open spaces of Clapham Common and Brockwell Park are both close-by.
