A larger than average, split level, one bedroom conversion flat occupying the first and second floors of one of the attractive, semi-detached houses on Drewstead Road. The property has a generous square footage with over 600 square feet of internal floor space and instantly feels like a home, the moment you walk through the door.
On entering the property and into the large, open plan reception room, you are struck by how bright and airy the space is, thanks to French doors that allow natural light to flood the room. This is a well-executed room that provides plenty of space in which to relax and dine. The space flows effortlessly onto the sunny, South-West facing private balcony – a wonderfully peaceful spot that overlooks the leafy neighbouring gardens to the rear. The galley kitchen is sleek and stylish, and complete with all the mod cons and storage you may need.
Upstairs, the double bedroom is a generous size, tucked away quietly to the rear of the house and benefits from some fantastic storage in the form of bespoke fitted wardrobes. The contemporary bathroom is just adjacent, benefitting from a separate bath and shower. The property has been lovingly cared for by the current owners and is presented tastefully, ready for a purchaser to move in hassle-free and add their own touch.
The flat is nestled in a popular residential pocket of Streatham Hill, with Tooting Bec Common and its iconic Lido at the end of the road itself. Streatham Hill station is a two minute walk with direct trains into Clapham Junction, Victoria and London Bridge.

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.
