Property Summary***NO ONWARD CHAIN***
Close to local amenities including the tube and overland railways stations, this is a ground-floor apartment with access to permit parking ideally suited to a young professional or couple.
Decorated in neutral colours throughout, the property includes a private courtyard garden and is offered with a newly-negotiated 158-year lease on a peppercorn rent.
Smart Georgian-style architecture helps the house stand out on a row of terraced homes set back behind Brixton Road and just over 100m from the Zone 2 Underground station. Services from here run to Victoria via Stockwell and Vauxhall while overland South Eastern Rail services travel to Bromley South, Orpington as well as London Victoria. Regular buses run from the stops Brixton Road call at Kings Cross, Trafalgar Square, Marble Arch, Crystal Palace, Clapham Junction and Mitcham.
Nearby amenities include a Sainsburys Local, a branch of W H Smiths, an Iceland food store, Boots the Chemist, a Specsavers store and branches of HSBC, Santander, Nat West and Barclays. The Ritzy Cinema, a McDonalds, a Costa and a Café Nero coffee shop are all within easy reach.
Brixton market is located on nearby Electric Avenue, there is a Tesco superstore on Acre Lane just over 500m away while local watering holes include the Prince of Wales with its tiered roof garden, the more laid-back Trinity Arms, Cajun dining and live music at the Blues Kitchen and the Latin vibe of the Barrio.
Access to the property is via a covered front door which opens onto Tunstall Road. An enclosed and private courtyard garden is located to the rear of the property. It can be accessed via the kitchen and includes established plants and shrubs planted in a stone-edged flower bed while climbing ivy also adds colour to a facing brick wall.
An internal door from the shared hallway leads into a reception hall with doors ahead opening onto the living room and the bedroom. The hall continues to the left and leads to another internal door which leads into the kitchen.
The living room is fitted with carpets, ample power sockets and a TV point; twin sash windows overlook the front of the house with a wall-mounted radiator beneath.
The kitchen is laid out in an L-shape and fitted with a hard-wearing, easy-to-clean vinyl floor. Wooden, soft-closing base and wall units are located above and below grey rolled-laminate worktops with white, ceramic splashback tiles above all cooking and preparation areas. The design includes an integrated electric oven and a four-ring gas hob beneath an extractor and adjacent to the stainless steel composite sink which sits beneath a window overlooking the rear garden. There is also a washing machine and fridge. A solid-pine door leads to the rear garden while an internal door opens onto the fully-tiled house bathroom.
Here, there is a bath with an integral shower above and a glass-and-chrome splash screen. The room also includes a wall-mounted hand basin with mixer tap beneath a bathroom cabinet, a wall-mounted radiator and a WC with concealed cistern in its own recessed alcove.
The bedroom is also carpeted and includes an integral double wardrobe with a double-doored storage cupboard above. A sash window with a wall-mounted radiator beneath overlooks the rear garden.
The property is fitted with its own independent, programmable gas-fired central heating system with a separate thermostat and individual controls fitted to all radiators. Low-energy lighting in all fixed points helps to ensure the apartment enjoys a C rating on its EPC.
