Cool three bed maisonette of 847 square feet that’s been beautifully and carefully renovated under its current ownership. It is one of just eight properties within a forties building, built originally (and interestingly!) for hm Prison Brixton workers. Each property has its own shed, garage and strip of land to the rear of the low-rise block, and there’s a large lawned communal garden to the front of the building - setting it nicely back from the pavement and road. Share of Freehold.
You open your own front door into a larger than average hall area, with space for shoes, coats and the like. Swing a left and you’re in the kitchen which is a bespoke, painted and fitted number, with plenty of cupboard space, and both wood and tiled worktops, plus glitzy splashback. You also have a built-in original cupboard. The kitchen’s been opened-up to the reception room - resulting in a great flow for the downstairs spaces, which also maximises the light through the property, throughout the day.
Low-maintenance marmoleum flooring runs throughout the ground floor (enjoy underfloor heating too). Recently-replaced double-glazed Crittal windows feature throughout, and from the reception you can open double doors onto the large communal front garden space which is largely laid to lawn.
Up the stairs and to the front of the property, you have a big double bedroom (of over 16 feet by over 9) with built-in original wardrobe, and a neat and windowed bathroom with white suite plus over bath shower. Set to the rear you have another double bedroom (this time over 15 feet by over 8, with a smaller built-in wardrobe) and a large single bedroom of over 10 feet by over 6. All three bedrooms have painted original floorboards, walls in well-chosen neutral hues, and old school style radiators.
