Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market an attractive two double bedroom garden flat with a private entrance, set within a Victorian conversion in the sought-after Poet’s Corner, moments from Brockwell Park.

Beautifully presented the apartment instantly feels like a home from the moment you walk through the door. Accessed via its own front door, the property is a light and airy mix of period features and contemporary design.

Nestled in the heart of the home is the generous reception room, with the proportions to unwind and entertain. Leading off the reception, is a sleek separate kitchen, with skylights and décor that combine to promote a tasteful, elegant atmosphere, whilst plenty of storage and worktop space offer real practicality as well as style. Dine in elegance with views over the garden through patio doors which slide open to the outside seating area, the ideal transition to dining al-fresco in the summer months.

The delightful private garden is a true oasis of calm and the ideal spot in which to escape the hustle and bustle of city living whilst soaking up rays on the lawn, or entertaining guests with BBQs on the patio during the warmer months of the year.

Both bedrooms are spacious doubles with fitted wardrobes and peaceful pastel presentation, set apart from one another for a level of privacy suited to sharers. One of the bedrooms is set behind a wonderful bay window overlooking the front garden of the building, with the quiet, neighbourly street beyond. Tucked to the rear of the home, the second bedroom enjoys French doors with direct access out to the private garden, suited to lazy weekend lie-ins whilst offering a pleasant setting for those who work from home. The bathroom is conveniently set in the centre of the home, featuring a luxurious walk-in rain shower, and tastefully finished with hexagon floor tiles with a contrasting blue on the walls.

Shakespeare Road is situated in the heart of Poets’ Corner, a highly desirable pocket of residential roads between leafy Herne Hill and vibrant Brixton. Herne Hill station is a seven-minute walk with direct access to The City of London in thirty minutes and Victoria within seventeen minutes, door to door. Brixton tube station is a fifteen-minute walk away, first stop on the Victoria Line which runs 24hrs at the weekends.

The celebrated Herne Hill establishments are close-by along with the weekend market and the restaurants and shops within the lauded Brixton Village, the amenities of the high street are a ten-minute stroll. The open spaces of Brockwell Park are at the end of the road, along with its iconic 1930’s Lido and fantastic sports facilities. It’s easy to see what makes Poets’ Corner such a popular area.

In short, a fantastically stylish yet practical home in a sought-after area, only a stone's throw from central Herne Hill and Brixton, but far enough away to retain a sleepy, neighbourhood feel.
