A majestic three double bedroom Victorian end of terrace townhouse, which is set back from Josephine Avenue behind long, secret gardens. This secure, gated property is tucked quietly at the end of the turfed, south facing garden and benefits from side access into both the front and rear gardens. The house has been lovingly cared for by the current owner and is a light and airy mix of contemporary design and characterful features which include; period fireplaces, coving and Victorian tiling in the hallways. With acres of room, three/four large bedrooms and a secluded front and rear garden to match, it is hard to remind yourself that you are indeed still in the heart of Brixton, located in the ever popular Josephine conservation area. The property comprises a large double aspect lounge with square bay window and packed full of features, a large eat-in kitchen diner with a door at the rear that opens out onto the private rear garden. On the upper floors sit three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a WC. The master bedroom is a fantastic size, running the width of the property with a bay window that allows natural light to flood into the room. The room adjacent is currently a family bathroom complete with roll top bath and separate walk-in shower. This room is configured as a double bedroom in similar houses on the road and it could be altered to a fourth double bedroom, should that suit the new purchasers needs. The total square footage is large and allows potential purchasers to alter the layout to best suit their own lifestyle. Subject to permission there is the opportunity to increase the footprint by altering the un-converted loft. 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.
