This chocolate box Victorian end of 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 good-sized front and rear gardens - when the sun is shining you can track it during the day. The house itself has been beautifully decorated and maintained by the current owners and is ready to move straight into. Upon entry you're met by a double-aspect reception dining room which boasts high ceilings, real wood floors, custom-made shelving alcoves and plaster cornicing. A bespoke kitchen replete with stainless steel Smeg Range cooker, a French marble counter all ensure the understated elegance prevails. The back-door opens onto your very own private walled garden - used in the summer as an outside dining room by the current owners. Upstairs you'll find a dream bathroom. Decadently spacious, Welsh slate tiles show off a free standing roll top bath and generous shower with waterfall head. The two bedrooms will also not disappoint. Both generous doubles (although one has just been turned into a nursery) with custom-made wardrobes, the master bedroom enjoys an original Victorian fireplace and stripped wooden floor, while the guest room enjoys plush wool loop carpet and space for a king-size bed. 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.
