Lexadon’s development on Normandy Road SW9 comprises nine apartments, two houses and one commercial unit.
The commercial unit – a former pub built in the late 19th century that was originally called The Cowley Arms then renamed The Normandy possibly in recognition of the Normandy landings at the end of WWI – offers approximately 193sqm of retail (A1/A2) space arranged over the ground and basement floors. The property also benefits from a rear garden.
The ground floor garden flats, upper floor apartments and two-storey adjoining houses offer one, two and three-bedroom living accommodation ideal for business professionals being located only a short distance from Brixton/Stockwell/Oval tube stations, which provide both overground and underground services to Central London and the West End. Furthermore, neighbouring Brixton Road is serviced by regular bus routes leading to Central and South London making it easy to get around the capital and beyond using public transport. Each unit also benefits from its own bike storage, meaning residents can take full advantage London’s plethora of cycle paths, green spaces and cycle to work provisions.
The Normandy Road site is situated in the vicinity of a wide range of community facilities, including the Minet Library, Longfield Hall and Lambeth Accord Conference Centre. A variety of nursery, primary and secondary school provisions are also located nearby. Furthermore, Normandy Road is also conveniently located for enjoyment of South London’s green spaces such as Kennington Park (a Victorian park with sport areas and a cafe), and ‘hidden gem’ Myatts Field, a child friendly park, with nature pond, kids’ playground, water fountains, swings, climbing wall and slides. The park also has tennis courts, a football pitch and Victorian bandstand where musicians are often seen playing; it also hosts a popular food/craft market on a Sunday.
