This Victorian terrace cottage sits in Brixton's most idyllic quarter - Merredene Street and Archbishop Place. Situated on a no through road, its village style quietness belies its central location. The property enjoys a good-sized front garden and a well-maintained rear garden - when the sun is shining you can track it during the day. The house has been beautifully decorated and maintained by the current owners and is ready to move straight into. Upon entry you're met by a separate reception room which boasts high ceilings, real wood floors, a feature fire place and a quaint window box seat. Sitting adjacent to this room you have another reception room. This room could be used as a dining room, third bedroom or the wall separating the two rooms could be opened to create a larger double aspect reception room. At the rear of the property you have a fantastic kitchen diner. The property has been extended to create a second dining area and concertina doors that allow the kitchen to spill out into the garden. The garden has been well designed for entertaining, with bench seating that also provides outdoor storage in addition to the garden shed. Upstairs you'll find a dream bathroom which is decadently spacious with a separate shower and bath. Additional bonuses include double glazed wooden sash windows with fitted wooden venetian blinds throughout and the shower also doubles up as a steam shower cubicle. The two bedrooms will also not disappoint, both generous doubles and the master bedroom has considerable storage in the form of custom-made wardrobes. From the landing you have access to substantial loft space. Not only are you within a stone’s throw of Brixton Village, Brockwell Park and Herne Hill are also on your doorstep - a perfect way to while away your weekend. Access to Brixton tube is fantastic, a twelve to fifteen minute stroll or the conveniently located bus-stop a two minute walk away with numerous buses that run all day and night that tend to take no more than 5 minutes down Brixton Hill. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, to 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.
