Spectacular Freehold Loft - Canterbury Crescent, London, SW9
Guide Price £1,595,000
In the heart of bustling Brixton, a truly spectacular freehold loft house of 2239 sqft, forming part of a converted Victorian school building.
The house has essentially been created from two massive former classrooms, which if left as separate spaces would make this the perfect creative live/work property. The ceiling heights in the two rooms are just fantastic and the original wooden ‘A’ frame beams have been left exposed. If knocked into one, the resulting living space would be epic in proportions!
In one half lies the main living room, with a large open-plan kitchen to the rear. From the kitchen, French doors lead to a private patio area and then the lovely, walled communal gardens. The house has the use of a storage shed within the grounds.
Back in the main house, an open staircase leads to the first floor mezzanine. To one side a large double bedroom, with private bathroom and stairs up to the roof terrace, with its urban views of Brixton. There is another double bedroom and guest bathroom.
The other half of the house is just one glorious double height space, used by the current tenants as a games room and studio bedroom. There is a large utility/storage room to the rear.
Off the entrance hall, a lovely front room with large period window and a bank of skylights; currently used as bedroom but also a great potential office space.
This wonderful house has character and natural light in abundance. There are skylights everywhere and massive period windows throughout. The atmosphere is both ecclesiastical and urban loft! Whilst perfectly habitable, the house could now do with some cosmetic attention throughout but we are confident that whoever falls for this place will love it for its endless possibilities.
St. John’s Buildings are located on Canterbury Crescent, right in the heart of Brixton. The world famous Academy rock venue is nearby, as is the gastronomic hub that is Brixton Village. Brixton Station is less than 5 minutes on foot and there is off-street parking within the grounds.
