A charming example of a double fronted Victorian house; this property on Ballater Road has an attractive and well-cared for exterior. This house is nestled in a popular residential area: highly sought after for its character, feel and proximity to both Brixton and Clapham. The bars and restaurants of Acre Lane are minutes away, and a ten-minute stroll down the road takes you to everything that Brixton has to offer: from music venues and the extremely popular Brixton Village, to large brand-shops and cracking transport links - including the first stop on the Victoria Line. In the other direction you are hit with the vibrant and diverse Clapham High Street offering a variety of nightlife and culinary delights. Potential purchasers will benefit from the amenities in both areas: a few examples include the green open spaces of Brockwell Park and Clapham Common and all that Clapham, Abbeville Village, and Brixton town centre have to offer in terms of food and festivities.
In short, a beautiful home in a sought-after pocket of roads – close to all amenities and the action but far enough away to be calm and quiet.
The property has a light and airy atmosphere and has been lovingly cared for by the current owners with a mix of characterful features, which include wooden flooring, high ceilings with mouldings, bay windows and feature fireplaces.
Double fronted Victorian houses have excellent dimensions and the property comprises two fantastic living areas. On one side of the house you have a spacious double aspect reception room that leads through to a sun trap conservatory and out through sliding doors into the garden; on the other you have a lovely dining room and a country styled kitchen-diner with breakfast bar, which is perfect for entertaining. The east-facing decked garden has a feeling of privacy and can be accessed from the reception room or from the convenient storage and utility room which leads off the kitchen. The cellar furthers the ample storage space available within the property.
A central staircase meanders up through the property and on the upper floors sit four comfortable double bedrooms and a modern family bathroom. The fully-boarded loft space is accessed from the landing and subject to the necessary permissions, the total floor space could be significantly increased and value added. The layout could be tailored to best suit the new purchaser’s lifestyle with the addition of an extra bathroom and two further bedrooms. A characterful home that appeals to buyers contemplating moving to either Brixton or Clapham.

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.
