We are pleased to offer to market this stylish, four double bedroom Victorian house located on an extremely quiet and sought after side street in the heart of Brixton. A genuine five-minute walk to Brixton village and town centre. Brockwell Park (an 84-acre slab of green, housing a famous lido built in 1937) is on your door step and a large Sainsbury’s and Tesco’s a stone’s throw away.
This property has been lovingly modernised and extended by its present owners, whilst maintaining great sensitivity to the period characters. This includes an architect-designed side and rear extension, built by a highly-regarded and long-established master builder in original stock brick. Reclaimed wooden flooring has been laid throughout the ground floor. The new cast iron radiators - from original Victorian casting – are a particularly nice feature. The entire house is decorated with Farrow and Ball paints and wallpapers. Throughout, there are new, hand-built cupboards and shelving.
At approximately 150 metres squared the property is larger than the average of its type, having had the kitchen extended (with enormous storage/wine cellar accessed through trap door) and the loft converted. A music system has been wired throughout the ground floor and the garden has lighting, power and music wired underground – perfect for outdoor entertaining. The private, low-maintenance garden is a sun trap, accessed via the concertina doors in the dining area.
Inside, the property includes: a beautiful master bedroom with wood burner and lovely views down the aesthetically pleasing Mervan Road, three further roomy double bedrooms which include a large loft bedroom with spacious en-suite bathroom. There is wired broadband in both loft bedrooms. The family bathroom on the first floor has a cast-iron roll top bath, separate walk-in shower, underfloor heating and overlooks the well-maintained gardens at the rear. On the ground floor you have an attractive tiled entrance hall with underfloor heating right through to the downstairs water closet. From the hallway you enter a stylish through-lounge, complete with a safe and fully operational wood burner, brand new double glazed wooden sash windows, cornicing/ceiling roses and access through to the kitchen diner. Tucked away at the rear of the property you have a beautiful eat-in kitchen with central island, access to the cellar and ample room to dine.
Overall, a fantastic, rarely available family home, within a five-minute stroll of buzzy Brixton to the North and the more genteel and green Herne Hill to the South. Freehold and chain-free.

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.
