Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market a fantastic two double bedroom apartment, set over the ground floor of a desirable Victorian mansion building on Rushcroft Road, a one-way residential cul-de-sac in the heart of Brixton.

This well-located property will tick boxes for a lot of purchasers as it has a multitude of selling points including a shared yard, and a beautiful blend of period features and contemporary decoration.

Packed full of original features this stunning home boasts original wooden flooring throughout the majority, high corniced ceilings in every room plus a mixture of smoked bronze and brass switches throughout. Now features in their own right, the radiators and associated pipe system has been upgraded in the last two years.

A grand room, the reception room is no exception, bursting with charm and boasting an abundance of space in which to unwind in front of the original fireplace whilst nestled behind large sash windows, under ornate cornicing complete with ceiling rose. Providing the ideal entertaining space, a separate dine-in kitchen is perfect for dining in style around a large table, doused in soft feature lighting, after cooking up a tasty treat in the well-equipped kitchen. Fully integrated, the contemporary kitchen is tucked around the corner, creating a practical space in which to cook, keeping the dishes neatly tucked out of sight whilst still maintaining the sociable vibe of the room. Thoughtfully designed the wrap around kitchen boasts plentiful storage within sleek cabinetry, enhanced by luxurious Italian stone tiling and worktop lighting with the sink set below large sash window, bathing the room in natural light.

Both bedrooms are spacious doubles, separated from one another to offer a level of privacy for both, ideal for sharers or hosting the occasional guest in the spare room. Soothingly presented in calming tones which complement the original flooring, the bedrooms each feature built-in wardrobes with space for additional storage options plus a desk or dressing table if desired.

Spectacularly presented, the bathroom has been completely renovated in the last two years to a high-end specification including double sinks and a Thematic rain shower over a large two-person stone bathtub, perfect for those moments only a relaxing soak in the bubbles will do. Replicating the Victorian original yet with an outlet to suit modern plumbing, there is a Thomas Crapper high level toilet with polished brass fittings and toilet pan detailed with illustrations, hand-cast and hand-finished in Britain using the best vitreous china clay and glazes available. Vibrant paintwork compliments the tones of the beautiful tiled floor, complete with underfloor heating to ensure toasty toes all year round.

The cherry on the cake is access out to a large yard, paved for ease of maintenance and dressed with a flourish of attractive pot plants. Complete with secure bike storage there is still generous space in which to dine al-fresco or simply enjoy a drink with a friendly neighbour with whom this spot is shared.

Rushcroft Road is a fantastic location great for anyone who wants to be close to the action, 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 a five-minute stroll away down the vibrant High Street, whilst the Green Flag awarded Brockwell Park is also accessible within a thirteen-minute stroll, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and unrivalled sports facilities.
