Sandhurst Court, Acre Lane, SW2
Sandhurst Court is a residential mansion block built in 1934 and currently comprising 57 one and two bedroom flats. The site is situated on the corner of Acre Lane and Strathleven Road and by virtue of its 'Art-Deco' style it is known as a local landmark. The freehold at Sandhurst Court was recently purchased by Sandhurst Court Ltd, a company set-up and owned by leaseholders at Sandhurst Court.
The main frontage on Acre Lane is six stories high, with a smaller four story southern wing. To the rear of the building there is a large communal garden and vehicle access from Strathleven Road leading to the garages that back on to the gardens of the houses on Glenelg Road.
Flats in Sandhurst Court rent very quickly, largely due to the convenience of being equidistant between Brixton and Clapham North Underground Stations. The flats also sell very well, with recent sold prices of up to £210,000.
In 2008 Lambeth Council granted approval of a planning application, backed by Sandhurst Court Ltd, to build a roof level extension of Sandhurst Court to include an additional nine self-contained flats and a complete refurbishment of the exterior and interior of the building. This exciting development will bring a new lease of life to this popular building and will no doubt result in a substantial increase in property values.
