Conveniently located just a short walk from Brixton town centre with its abundance of markets, shops, trendy bars and restaurants and outstanding transport links, stands 357, 359 and 361 Brixton Road, a trio of elegant four-storey Victorian villas that lie on the southern side of a terrace of Victorian properties comprising 341-361 Brixton Road (formerly I-II Angell Terrace).
Before their conversion the villas, which were built in 1855 as part of the Angell estate (the Angell family owned much of the land around Lambeth at that time), were principally used as council offices with internal access between the buildings. The ground floor of the interconnected buildings was actually used as a registry office and wedding/civil partnership venue while the upper floors contained further office space and residential flats.
The grade II listed buildings, which are situated within the Brixton Road and Angell Town Conservation area, have been sensitively converted into fifteen stylish, high specification one, two and three-bedroom apartments (with five flats in each building). Many of the original features have been carefully retained throughout the flats and communal areas.
Property Type Grade II listed
The area is steeped in history; in fact, Brixton Road itself (the A23) dates back to Roman times; its path actually follows the original Roman Road which linked the City of London with Brighton (the London to Brighton Way).
The properties are very central for all the local amenities and transport links, with Brixton tube and mainline station just a four-minute walk away. Occupants will be spoilt for choice with all the entertainment options nearby, whether it’s watching the latest headliners playing Brixton’s famous O2 Academy, enjoying an Oscar-nominated film at the Ritzy Cinema, dining at the one of the plethora of restaurants at Brixton Village Market, or dancing the night away in one of Brixton’s clubs. For those looking to stay in shape, there are some superb gym facilities locally while Loughborough Park and the beautiful Brockwell Park, host to one of London’s most famous Lidos and the popular Lambeth Country Show, are within easy reach.
