Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market a spacious three double bedroom apartment with a South-East facing private garden. This double-fronted Victorian conversion is set on the desirable Mervan Road, a leafy residential street nestled between central Brixton and Brockwell Park.

Boasting over 1,000 square feet the property feels generous throughout with well-proportioned rooms and a thoughtful layout with three of the rooms benefitting from direct access to the outside spaces.

The inviting reception room is the ideal space in which to unwind or entertain, neutrally presented and featuring high ceilings with the period charm of wooden floorboards and attractive French doors leading out to the private garden. A separate dine-in kitchen is set to the rear, perfect for hosting dinners around the table with garden views, this contemporary space is bright and airy with dual aspect windows flooding the space with natural light. Ample storage is on offer within sleek white cabinetry, topped with generous work surfaces running the full length of the room. Further French doors lead out to the garden allowing an ease of transition to al-fresco dining.

South-East facing the private garden feels worlds away from city life, bathed in sunlight throughout the day and benefitting from additional privacy due to the leafy borders and positioning of the surrounding properties. Enjoy the best of both worlds with a low-maintenance patio area to the front, leading up to a pretty raised lawn to the rear, perfect for whiling away the summer months.

A rarity for period conversions, all three bedrooms are expansive doubles with charming original floorboards and high ceilings creating a roomy yet cosy ambience. Two of the bedrooms boast further appeal with large bay windows featuring arched sashes, plus high skirting boards, one of which also features a Victorian fireplace. The third bedroom benefits from French doors to a patio courtyard, leading around into the garden, perfect for allowing fresh air to breeze through the room on lazy weekend lie-ins or evening drinks under the stars. The bathroom is fresh and contemporary with a bathtub plus overhead shower.

This wonderful home also has access to a cellar, ideal for storing those lesser used items, keeping the property neat and tidy.

Mervan Road is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action whilst still retaining a leafy residential feel, situated in the centre of Brixton's cultural hub - just around the corner from The Ritzy and POP Brixton. The wonders of trendy Brixton Village are minutes away and purchasers will be able to sample the culinary delights of a different nation’s cuisine every day. The start of the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is an eight-minute walk way whilst the Green Flag awarded Brockwell Park is also accessible a similar stroll in the other direction, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and unrivalled sports facilities. The amenities of Herne Hill with its village charm, farmers market, eclectic array of shops and pubs and access to the Thameslink trains are just a short walk beyond the park, ten-minutes from your door. Clapham, Stockwell and Loughborough Junction are all also within walking distance, inclusive of access to the Northern Line, Overground and Thameslink.

Sure to appeal to a wide range of purchasers, early registration of interest is advised.
