This is a very large, delightfully arranged one double bedroom garden flat occupying the whole ground floor of one of the majestic townhouses set back from Josephine Avenue behind long, secret gardens. The property is tucked quietly at the end of the front garden and benefits from an off street parking space. The flat itself is immaculately presented, larger than average and offers over 700 sq ft of internal living space. Situated at the front of the property is a large, square bay, reception room, packed full of characterful features which include high ceilings, coving and a feature fireplace. Adjacent to the reception room is a large double bedroom, which has views out onto the un-extended side return and the pretty rear garden. The rest of the property comprises a country styled kitchen diner, modern bathroom, private garden and an off street parking space. The property has a supermarket at either end of the road and is a two minute walk from what many local people claim as the best park in London, Brockwell Park. The pubs, bars and restaurants of Brixton Hill and Effra Road are a 10 minute walk. The property benefits from all that Brixton offers, from the celebrated cuisine in Brixton Village to the music venues and nightlife the area is famous for and first stop on the Victoria Line in Brixton tube station, a ten minute walk away. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, secluded country feel, size, outside space, storage and 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.
