Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market a spacious three double-bedroom apartment, split over the upper floors of an attractive Victorian end-of-terrace house on Josephine Avenue, one of Britain’s most desirable, leafy streets. Nestled peacefully within the Josephine Avenue conservation area, offering a village-esq, neighbourly feel.

Lovingly cared for this wonderful home spans 1,100 square feet of internal space, retaining period features whilst incorporating contemporary finishes to create a beautiful apartment which is ready to move into hassle-free.

With leafy avenue views, the reception room is set to the front of the home, a bright space with charming features including sash windows, high ceilings and a feature fireplace. Neutrally yet tastefully presented this spacious room has a cosy feel, ideal for unwinding on the generous sofa, with space for a dining table if desired. For those who entertain on a regular basis, the second bedroom sits adjacent, currently dressed with a dining table under the sash window, with original floorboards creating a lavishly homely space in which to host. The separate kitchen features sleek, contemporary cabinetry down both sides, topped with wooden worktops, transitioning into a breakfast bar for a more casual dining option. A large range cooker and the ergonomic layout combine to make this an enjoyable place to cook up a tasty treat, with leafy views through the window.

All three bedrooms are doubles, set apart from one another for a level of privacy suited to sharers. Peacefully set over the top floor, the principal bedroom is soothingly presented, enjoying the proportions for plentiful storage plus a lounging area with views over the rooftops to the London skyline, including The Shard. The second and third bedrooms are nestled to the rear of the home on the floor below.

Luxuriously opulent, the main bathroom is equipped with a free-standing, double-ended bath and a separate walk-in rain shower. Contemporary lighting features, trendy brass fittings, characterful beams and vibrant tiling all add to the spa-like quality of this fantastic space. Ideal for visiting guests and busy morning routines, a handy WC is similarly presented on the floor below. If all this weren’t enough, there is additional storage within a cupboard on the upper landing and within the eaves of the main bathroom.

Being split over the upper floors, the apartment benefits from additional privacy due to this elevated position, plus an abundance of natural light that promotes an incredibly airy atmosphere with excellent morning and evening sunlight. The comfortable square footage over various levels are sure to make this elegant flat appeal to a wide range of purchasers.

The location is fantastic, set within the Josephine conservation area on the sought-after Josephine Avenue. The local amenities on Brixton Hill including shops, restaurants and bars are just a couple of minute's walk away, and the property offers the benefit of being in close proximity to vibrant central Brixton whilst sufficiently distant from its busy high street activities and noise, ideal for anyone who wants to be close to the action while maintaining a sense of calm. The new owner will have the best of both worlds, with everything on offer in the hustle and bustle of central Brixton just a ten-minute stroll away, yet will be able to retire to the quieter, village-like community that has been developed around Brixton Hill. Brockwell Park is just two minutes from the end of the road, leading you into sleepier Herne Hill for a stroll around the Sunday market. In the other direction, the popular establishments of Abbeville Village are an eighteen-minute walk away, with Clapham High Street, Old Town and the Common just a few minutes further.

First stop on the Victoria Line at Brixton tube station is only a ten-minute walk, whisking you into central London and the City within a few minutes, as well as the regular day and night bus options at the end of the avenue.

Early registration of interest is advised.
