Sitting on the top floor of a majestic, terraced house in Herne Hill, this pretty one bedroom flat looks out over Brockwell Park. Thoughtfully renovated in 2016, it is light, airy and white-washed throughout – a brilliant blank canvas for any new owner to stamp their style on.
Across the road, you'll find over 50 hectares of glorious green space to wander and enjoy, as well as the much-loved Brockwell Park Lido. When you tire of fresh air and exercise, there's no shortage of shops, bars and restaurants in the local area, with Herne Hill just up the road and Brixton a short bus ride away.
Brickworks Says - We love the classic, Victorian brick-facade and the crisp, contemporary look and feel of the interior. It's a perfect combination in our book. Plus the lovely, leafy views from the front windows are such a bonus – a joy to wake up to every morning.
Being on the top floor, the light inside the flat is also great. The front of the house faces west, so on sunny days, the reception room and bedroom, in particular, are bathed in afternoon sun.
Our final hat tip goes to the innovative, wooden-clad wall in the bathroom – a smart design touch and a subtle nod to nature, just right for a park-side pad.
The Owners Say - We adore this tranquil, light-filled flat and its beautiful views of Brockwell Park. And we love what's happening in the local area too – it's becoming such a great spot to live in, with a growing number of independent shops and restaurants, plus the Lido in the summer.
Our most favourite local draw, however, is the fantastic Farmers' Market at Herne Hill. On every Sunday, it's evolved into a haven for foodies, with an amazing array of different food stalls (over 50 at the last count) and local artists on show. It's a TimeOut #LoveLondon award winner, no less.
Points To Consider - The EPC gives a current Energy Efficiency Rating: D & Environmental Impact Rating: D
Part of the London Borough of Lambeth, the property falls within Council Tax Band C (£839 for 2016/17).
The flat has a share of the freehold, together with the other two flats in the building. Everyone pays a monthly contribution of £35 to cover general maintenance and buildings insurance.
Norwood Road has a steady flow of traffic, but the property is set back from the street and has double-glazing to minimise traffic noise. The fact that you're on the top floor aids the sense of peace and security.
There is also a bus stop virtually outside the front door providing direct and frequent links to Herne Hill, Tulse Hill and Brixton (around 10 minutes on the bus). The latter gives access to the Tube (Victoria Line Zone 2). These routes complement the transport mix, with the train stations at Herne Hill (0.5 miles) and Tulse Hill (0.4 miles) both within easy walking distance.
The Field Day festival is moving to Brockwell Park in June 2018.
Currently empty, the property is being sold chain-free so you could move in with minimal fuss.
