This lovely Victorian semi-detached cottage sits in Brixton's most idyllic quarter - Archbishop's Place and Merredene Street. Situated on a no through road, its village style quietness belies its convenient location. The property enjoys good-sized front and rear gardens - when the sun is shining you can track it during the day. The house itself has been beautifully decorated and maintained by the current owners and is ready to move straight into. Upon entry you're met on your right hand side by a characterful reception room which boasts high ceilings, a feature fireplace and custom-made shelving within the alcoves. On your right hand side a delightful eat-in kitchen with all you need in terms of mod cons, ample room for a large dining table and pretty views of the private garden at the rear. Tucked away at the rear of the property you have a convenient utility area and a lovely bathroom with separate shower and roll top bath. The back-door opens onto the private garden - perfect for use in the summer months. Upstairs the three bedrooms will not disappoint. Both bedrooms on the first floor are generous doubles, the master bedroom enjoys access to a separate water closet. Stairs lead to the third loft bedroom which benefits from skylights and views of the London skyline. Not only are you within walking distance of Brixton Village and Brixton tube station, Brockwell Park and Herne Hill are also on your doorstep - a perfect way to while away your weekend! Access to Brixton tube is a fifteen minute stroll or the conveniently located bus-stop a two minute walk away with numerous buses that run all day and night that tend to take no more than five minutes down Brixton Hill. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, to the proximity to all the action the area has to offer - we really like it.

Loved by those in the know, Brixton has a massively dedicated fan-base in people in search of culture, cuisine and nightlife. The redevelopment of Brixton's covered market has created a mecca to global cuisine; as well as the iconic cinema and arts venue, Windrush square with its new museum and Tate library, the many great pubs, restaurants, music venues and night clubs make it clear why this is one of the fastest growing areas of London in the popularity stakes. Great transport links (with further proposed improvements) and Brockwell park, regarded by many as the capital's best open space complete the set of lifestyle bonuses in this very fresh and vibrant corner of London.
