A loft style one bedroom apartment within easy walking distance of the London Underground.
This cleanly presented and very spacious one double bedroom loft style apartment is situated in a private gated development close to the centre of Brixton and its many bars and restaurants, live music venues, cinema and daily market. Closer to hand are a range of local shops, takeaways and restaurants for every day needs.
The apartment currently has a lease with 102 years unexpired. A number of the leaseholders in the development, including the owner of this flat, have commenced the process to acquire the freehold of the development. This is anticipated to complete in the second half of 2021. Any purchaser of this apartment will be required to continue to participate in that process, which will involve a financial outlay when the freehold is acquired. Potential purchasers should take such costs (some details of which can be provided by the selling agents) into account when making an offer on this apartment.
The property is situated within easy walking distance of both Loughborough Junction railway station (direct services to London Blackfriars (c. 8 mins), Farringdon (c. 17 mins) and St. Pancras (c.21 mins)) and Brixton railway stations (direct services to Victoria (c. 7 mins)), as well as the Victoria line Underground services at Brixton. There are also numerous bus services passing within a couple of hundred metres or so of the property, which provide direct routes into central London and elsewhere.
College Green Court was built originally as The Brixton Orphanage in the 1850s and was converted to apartments in 1997. You enter this gated development, from Barrington Road, into a delightful graveled and lawned communal garden, incorporating mature shrubs and a fish pond. To your left is the residents’ car park in which the apartment has the benefit of an allocated parking space. There is also lockable bike storage available for residents.
The apartment is to be found on the second (top) floor of one of the buildings within the development. You enter the building, which has recently been the subject of restoration, into the large communal hallway, with original large sash windows, and take the carpeted stairs to the top floor. On reaching the second floor the door to the apartment is on your right.
You enter the apartment into the hallway, which has a skylight. To your left are two stairs leading up to the kitchen. This room is fitted with light wooden kitchen units with dark work surfaces. It has a built in oven and hob and room for all other necessary freestanding appliances. There is a Velux window and skylight in the kitchen and ample room for a table and chairs if required. The kitchen walls are part tiled with ceramic tiles. Next to the kitchen there is a useful cloak cupboard.
Returning to the hallway, the double bedroom is straight ahead of you. This room again has a Velux window and there are exposed painted steel beams reinforcing the feeling of loft style living. Continuing along the hallway you pass the bathroom on your right. This room is fitted with a white three-piece bathroom suite including designer hand basin and tap with an over-bath shower. The walls are part tiled with white ceramic tiling, accented in silver, and the floor is fitted with ceramic tiles.
Continuing along the hallway you reach the lovely, spacious reception room with its wooden flooring. Again, this bright room has exposed painted steel beams and a double casement window overlooking the rooftops as well as two further Velux windows. There is a very large walk-in storage cupboard to your right as you enter the reception room and the reception room itself has plenty of space (including eaves space) for both a sitting and dining area.
The apartment is neutrally decorated throughout and all of the windows in the property are double-glazed.
Properties in this development are much sought after and it is rare to find a property of this kind with secure parking so close to the Underground services and other amenities of Brixton. Early viewing is recommended.
