Mayall Road, Herne Hill
Attractive three bedroom flat-fronted Victorian mid-terrace house, on a residential street within easy walking distance of Brockwell Park and Lido (four minutes by foot), and both Herne Hill (five) and Brixton (11) town centres and stations.
From the hall you’ve got a large through-reception to your left, running over 17 feet. Custom-made shutters grace the front window.
Next along the hall is the property’s (windowed) bathroom, with white suite and over bath shower.
At the foot of the hall, find your double-aspect kitchen-diner, extending over 20 feet, to recently- fitted double-glazed French doors out onto the garden. The walled garden is a ‘city’ style: low-maintenance, paved, perfect for pots.
Upstairs and from the half-landing, you’ve got the first bedroom - of 13 feet by over 9 feet. From the landing proper, find two further doubles. The bedroom to your right is over 11 feet by over 9 feet. The twin-windowed and large master - taking the width of the house - is over 11 feet by nearly 15 feet. Built-in closets run along one whole wall.
Brockwell Park is a winning one in all ways! It’s one of Lambeth's Green Flag Award-winning parks, as well as a 'Green Flag Heritage' park. It is also a holder of ‘Park of the Year’, a ‘Heritage Park’, 'Large Conservation Area' and a ‘Walled Garden of the Year’ awards from London in Bloom!
Originally the private residence of John Blades (a famous London glass merchant), Brockwell Park was acquired by the Metropolitan Board of Works in the late 19th Century. It was then laid out as a landscaped park, and formally opened to the general public in 1892. Set within a hilly landscape, you have a network of ponds, trees (including ancient oaks), a walled 'Old English' flower garden and wide, open meadows, plus a mixture of formal and informal sports and play areas, tennis and basketball courts, and grass football pitches.
The park also contains a large number of historic buildings and other features: these include Brockwell Hall, the Brockwell Lido (50 metres!), the Walled Garden, ponds, and a charming 19th-century Tritton clock tower, as well as a well-laid out network of paths and vistas. And it is home to the annual Lambeth Country Show.
Local shops, pubs and places to eat include The Prince Regent, The Florence, The Commercial, Llewelyn’s, Off The Cuff (comedy and live music venue) and Herne Hill Books. There’s a weekly delightful Farmers’ Market in Herne Hill too (the pedestrianised bit by the station).
In Brixton, don’t miss Naughty Piglets, Three Eight Four, The Ritzy, Brixton Village Market and The Brixton Academy.
For more options, you’re close to Dulwich Village, East Dulwich, Camberwell and Peckham.
