A fantastic opportunity to purchase this extremely spacious, four story semi-detached house, within leafy and residential Poets’ Corner, perfectly located between Herne Hill and Brixton.
This characterful, larger than average period house has an abundance of space, with over 2100 square feet on offer. The layout is extremely versatile and can be altered to suit each individual purchaser’s needs to best suit their own lifestyle and requirements, and also features off street parking at the front of the property.
The property is accessed via the grand entrance on the raised ground floor, which compromises a dual aspect reception and dining room, running the length of the house and providing a fantastic space for relaxing, dining and entertaining. The room is flooded with natural light and is packed full of character, from the bay window to the feature fireplaces and high ceilings alike. Located just off the dining room is the modern kitchen, creating an open and sociable family hub: this area will be used on a regular basis. Doors lead directly onto the larger than average garden, a quiet and serene space in which to relax during the summer months.
Downstairs on the lower ground floor is an additional open-plan reception and kitchen with utility area, a spacious double bedroom with ensuite shower room, plus a family bathroom. The entire floor is currently set up as a self-contained one bedroom flat, with its own private entrance, and has a multitude of potential uses, such as a separate flat for an au pair, older children, guest area etc. The main house boasts 5 further bedrooms on the second and third floors, all of which are generous in size, plus two further bathrooms.
The house is a blank canvas, ready for a purchaser to move in hassle-free, and stamp their own mark over time. Characterful features are a running theme throughout the house, with feature fireplaces, very high ceilings, wooden flooring as well as bay and sash windows. A rare find, with various characteristics that allow the property to stand out from all the other houses which are currently on the market in the area.

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.
