This exceptional Victorian conversion flat occupies the upper floors of one of the prettiest houses in Poets Corner. Shakespeare Road is a quaint, tree-lined Victorian road sandwiched between similar roads in this sought after residential pocket adjacent to Brockwell Park between Herne Hill and Brixton. There are two comfortable double bedrooms tucked away at either end of the apartment and the master bedroom is a fantastic size, larger than average. The separate reception room is packed full of charm and the kitchen diner has all you need in terms of mod cons. Last but not least there is a modern bathroom with a warm inviting feel but the pièce de résistance has to be the substantial South West facing roof terrace which offers a wonderfully private and secluded outdoor entertaining space.
Characterful features are a running theme throughout this split-level property, with high ceilings, wooden flooring, sash windows and feature fireplaces. Nearly 950 square feet of internal living space, vaulted ceilings in the hallways and a majestic roof terrace all contribute to confirming that this property will stand out from the majority of two bedroom apartments which are currently on the market in the local area. Nestled on the corner of the road allows multiple windows on two sides of the property and with the living space split over various floors, there is a light and airy atmosphere throughout the apartment. The flat is a beautiful home and ready for a purchaser to move in hassle-free, and stamp their own mark over time.
Shakespeare Road is situated in the heart of Poets’ Corner, a highly desirable residential pocket of roads between Herne Hill and Brixton. Herne Hill station is a six-minute walk and Brixton tube station is a ten-minute stroll. London Bridge is accessible in twenty-four minutes, Canary Wharf in thirty-seven minutes and Victoria within sixteen minutes, door to door. The celebrated Herne Hill establishments are close-by and the restaurants and shops within the lauded Brixton Village, the amenities of the high street and Brixton Station are a ten-minute stroll. The green, open spaces of Brockwell Park are also at the end of the road, along with its fantastic 1930’s Lido.
With Brockwell Park, Herne Hill’s pubs and restaurants and Brixton Village all on your doorstep, there is something to cater for all potential purchasers. In short, a spacious apartment in an attractive period building in a popular street in a sought-after area, only a stone's throw from Herne Hill town centre but far enough away to retain a sleepy, neighbourhood feel. This is a real gem.

Herne Hill is one of those areas that belong to those in the know. Brockwell Park alone could generate enough demand on its own, but there is more to the area than one of the most staggeringly beautiful (and user friendly) parks in London. With a large variety of homes ranging from the massive turn-of-the-century houses of the southern quadrant neighbouring Dulwich Village to typical Victorian terraces to the North of more working class origins.
