152-160 Brixton Road is an impressive five-storey, grade II listed building situated on a sought-after, tree-lined road running from Brixton to the south to Oval and Kennington Park to the north.
When Lexadon first acquired the property, it housed 17 residential units and was in a substantial state of disrepair. The attractive Victorian terrace, which is situated within the Brixton Road and Angell Town Conservation area, has been sensitively converted to create twenty five stylish, high specification apartments comprising one-, two- and three-bedroom units along with a new walkway at basement level providing access to rear garden creating a shared amenity space for all the flats and storage for 25 bicycles.
Property Type Grade II listed building
The terrace, also known as Herbert Morrison Terrace, originally comprised seven houses with an inset property on the right-hand side of the terrace (matching the shape of the left-hand side of the terrace) that was reduced to five after bombing during the war. Numbers 148 and 150 Brixton Road were never rebuilt leaving five properties in the terrace.
The property benefits from excellent local transport links within walking distance, with Oval tube (Northern line) and Stockwell (Northern & Victoria) within close proximity; there are also 24-hour bus services along Brixton Road. Additionally, the site is just a short twenty-minute walk to Brixton town centre with its abundance of vibrant markets and shops, trendy bars and restaurants.
