Available to let is a beautiful 2 bedroom ground-floor flat with unbeatable outdoor space. All the rooms are an excellent size and very light with large windows. There are two double bedrooms (one with a built-in wardrobe), one bathroom with a combined bath and shower, a double-aspect kitchen with space for a dining table, a large, double-aspect living room with a gas fireplace, and laminate flooring throughout. There is also a very generous amount of storage space.
The hidden gem with this flat, however, is the covered deck/patio area that both the kitchen and the living room open directly onto. This covered deck is large enough for a table and chairs and is surrounded by mature grapevine in the summer (perfect for making homemade stuffed vine leaves!). The deck is very private and not overlooked by any other properties, and it provides a lovely vantage point to sit and enjoy the large, private garden at all times of year, whether to relax with a cup of tea, to eat breakfast or dinner, or to enjoy a drink in the evening. Because the deck and garden are west-facing, they are a real sun-trap in the late afternoon.
The garden itself has one large tree at the rear, next to the shed, 5 vegetable boxes (in which rocket is currently being grown), and a variety of beautiful plants have been cultivated around the sides of the lawn, including mint and rose bushes. There is also a compost bin at the back of the garden. Because this garden is so large and mature, tenants will be asked to do a little basic gardening (lawn-mowing and shrub-trimming).
The flat is fully double-glazed and sits on the ground floor of a 3-storey block. The building is very safe, requiring a magnetic key for the main door. Situated outside the front of the building is a bus stop where the 2, N2 (night bus), 432 and 415 stop frequently and take you directly to Brixton in 5-10 minutes; perfect for commuters. (Passing night buses will not keep you awake, the double-glazing works well!) Tulse Hill station is a 10-minute walk from the flat for anyone requiring trains. The 201 bus also stops right outside (Morden-Dulwich service).
Two minutes walk away you will find a small convenience store with a cashpoint, while 5 minutes walk away is a Tesco Express, and 10 minutes walk will take you to a new, large Sainsburys at Brixton Water Lane.
The nearest pub is Hootananny, next to the large Sainsburys, which features a large beer garden and frequently plays host to live bands.
The gorgeous Brockwell Park, the host of many Lambeth attractions such as fireworks and festivals, is a 2 minute walk from the flat and provides a pleasant shortcut to Herne Hill station for commuters.
The gas combi-boiler is in good working order, with hot water available immediately on demand and well-behaved radiators.
The property will be part-furnished, with white goods (oven, washing machine, fridge/freezer) provided, as well as one double bed frame, two bedside tables, and all curtains. The purchasing of additional furniture for the flat may be negotiable.
