Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market a fantastic three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, nestled securely on the top floor of an attractive Victorian mansion block, close to the action in thriving Brixton.

Lovingly cared for and fully renovated in 2019 by the current owners, this beautifully presented apartment boasts larger-than-average proportions and feels wonderfully bright and private due to the elevated position over the fourth floor, with views across London.

Packed full of period character and contemporary design, the semi-open plan reception room is perfect for relaxing, cooking and entertaining guests. Wooden floorboards sweep through the room which is divided by a modern concrete-finished pillar, creating a cosy living room, ergonomic kitchen and a stunning dining area in the turret of the building framed by three arched sash windows. The kitchen is fully integrated within appealing charcoal cabinetry offering generous storage options, offset with trendy brass fittings. A skylight bathes the worktops in natural light with lofty ceilings further enhancing this striking room.

All three bedrooms are neutrally presented with plush carpets adding a cosy finish, with the two largest bedrooms featuring bespoke fitted wardrobes and one, a feature fireplace. Ideal for sharers, all three bedrooms are separated from one another for a desirable level of privacy. The principal bedroom is particularly appealing, nestled to the rear of the property with large windows and the luxury of an attractive en-suite shower room. The main bathroom is equally as tastefully finished, conveniently located in the centre of the home and equipped with both a bathtub and a separate shower.

This delightful home further offers direct access to a private roof terrace and a remarkable amount of storage, efficiently utilising the extra space within the eaves and loft, with the addition of a hallway utility cupboard.

The entire mansion block was renovated with high-quality workmanship 17 years ago, bringing this Victorian building into the modern day, installing new double glazing and sound insulating all of the apartments. Of further benefit, there is also access to bike storage within the rear yard.

Situated in the heart of Brixton, there really is something on offer for everyone, from a private members club to life’s simplest conveniences. Canterbury Crescent is a two-minute walk to Brixton’s popular hangouts; Pop Brixton, Market Row and Brixton Village where there are endless options of fine dining, bistro and street food. Purchasers will benefit from the wide variety of shops, nightlife, and vibrant Brixton culture, with the option of Clapham within walking distance if you ever fancy a change of scenery.

The transport links are second to none, with only a five-minute walk to Brixton underground station, the first stop of the Victoria Line with a short commute to the city. The property is a 30-second walk from multiple bus stops taking you all across London.

The location is ideal with the green, open spaces of Wyck Gardens within a ten-minute walk, with 31 acres of beautiful park which hosts; horse stables and riding club, kids play area, urban cricket pitch, football pitches and a community garden. In the other direction, you are a stroll away from the award-winning Brockwell Park, one of South London’s most popular parks. Brixton Recreation Centre is also just a minute’s walk away with a gym, squash courts and indoor bowling to name a few.
