Completed in 2015, 247 Brixton Road is a new build, five-storey residential building housing nine luxury apartments located in the popular Brixton Road and Angell Town Conservation Area.
The site lay vacant for many years prior to Lexadon’s recent development. Previously, in the late nineteenth/early twentieth century, there was a large listed property on the site however it is understood that while vacant, the building fell into disrepair and was destroyed by fire. Subsequently, the building was delisted and demolished.
Lexadon’s re-development of the plot has provided nine high specification apartments for the rental market comprising one x one-bedroom and seven x two-bedroom flats with balconies as well as one impressive three-bedroom penthouse suite with its own private roof terrace. All of the units have been built to the highest standards and include ultra-modern kitchens and bathrooms. The site also boasts cycle storage for each apartment and large shared communal amenity space; the building was also constructed to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 and Secured by Design standards.
