The property itself has a colourful part of its history in Brixton’s music culture being the birthplace of 80’s pop band Bronksi Beat. The band came about while Jimmy Somerville (lead singer), Larry Steinbachek (keyboards and percussion) and Steve Bronski (keyboards and percussion) all lived together in the three-bedroomed flat of artist Jill Whisson, whose work appeared on the record sleeves for their hits "Smalltown Boy" and "I Feel Love".
The period property is perfectly located just a few minutes’ walk from Brixton’s underground station on the Victoria Line and Brixton’s mainline station on the Southeastern rail network. At the end of the road is Brixton Village with its vibrant covered markets and myriad of cafes and restaurants serving a wide range of cuisines. The Ritzy Cinema is just around the corner while the beautiful Brockwell Park, with its popular lido, is just a short drive away.
Each four-bedroom flat is mirrored by a matching flat on the opposite side, while the top floor features a two-bedroom flat with a roof terrace.
