An outstanding split level, one bedroom flat, with access to a private garden, moments from Streatham Hill station, set back quietly on this desirable road.
Located in the Leigham Court Road Conservation area, this detached, double-fronted building was built in 1866, a one-time home of W. R. Axten, of the iconic Quin and Axtens' Department Store in Brixton, with a blend of Gothic styling and a central turret, coupled with classical period references which reflect the fluid architectural tastes of builders at the time.
With over 700 square feet of internal space on offer, this spectacular flat is truly one of a kind and offers considerably more internal living space than the average one bedroom property in the area.

There is plenty of space for dining, relaxing and entertaining in this wonderfully open room, which is sure to be used on a regular basis. Double doors provide direct access onto the private garden: this attractive outdoor area is the perfect space in which to unwind and enjoy the tranquil surroundings during the warmer months and feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
The double bedroom is generous in size and has the added benefit of floor-to-ceiling fitted wardrobes. Natural light is a running theme throughout the property – the bedroom is no different, with attractive windows adding further character. The luxurious bathroom is sleek and modern, complete with a stylish walk-in shower. The property has the superb additional benefit of a spacious mezzanine level, currently used as a guest bedroom.

The area on the move, with its’ distinctive avenues of red brick and tiled, elegant, late Victorian terraced houses. The high street has had its ups and downs: the Romans paved it, the Saxons renamed it, the seventies destroyed it and the noughties begun a steady rebuilding of reputation which continues today with the new Streatham Hub development, the world famous Hideaway Jazz bar and a multitude of bars and cafes sprouting up or undergoing improvements. Streatham Common, Streatham Green and the Tooting Commons are all on hand with the latter being enormous and offering all that one hopes for, from running track to lido to tennis courts and much more at a five minute trot from central Streatham.
