"An enormous open-plan living room with double-height vaulted ceilings occupies the central space."
Quietly situated a short distance from the bustle of Brixton Village is this expansive two/three-bedroom house with private courtyard garden. Once a Salvation Army church, the property was converted for use as a photography studio before being wonderfully restored and refurbished by the current owners. Internal accommodation extends to over 2,800 sq ft.
An enormous open-plan living room with double-height vaulted ceilings occupies the central space, with natural light pouring in through roof lights and large sash windows. High glazed French windows open to a west-facing courtyard garden.
At the front of the property behind glazed double doors is a second living room, which can be used as a third bedroom. There is also a large family bathroom with walk-in shower, free-standing bath, and separate utility/store room. On the first floor is the master bedroom with large dressing room.
The kitchen and dining area has slate flooring, granite worktops, and exposed brick walls with a raised recessed fireplace. The solid soffit of a spiral staircase offers a sculptural sense of partition from the main living space and ascends to the mezzanine library and study areas with views across the lower level. Double doors lead from the gallery to a large bedroom with built-in wardrobes and en-suite shower room.
Blenheim Gardens is located off Brixton Hill approximately ten minutes’ walk from Brixton underground station. There are also mainline train stations at Brixton and Herne Hill as well as numerous buses into central London.
The Village, Market Row and Acre Lane are nearby and offer an excellent range of restaurants, bars, cafes and music venues, as well as the brilliant Ritzy Cinema. There is a superb mixture of supermarkets and independent food shops in the area. Both Herne Hill and Brixton also have weekly farmers markets. The green open space of Brockwell Park, well known for its open air lido, is around ten minutes’ walk.
