Brixton is part of the London Borough of Lambeth and falls into two postcode areas. The SW2 part begins south of Acre Lane and extends southwards to include either side of Brixton Hill, with Kings Avenue forming the border to the West and Tulse Hill forming the border to the East. The SW9 part of Brixton is North of Brixton Underground Station and is divided by Brixton Road, covering the Loughborough Junction area which includes the roads either side of Coldharbour Lane.
Brixton is one of London’s most multi-cultural areas and boasts a thriving shopping centre and market with an array of stalls and arcades, selling everything from ethnic foods and fruit to jewellery and fabrics. There are also the usual high street chains and the town center has recently seen the redevelopment of Windrush Square and the Ritzy Cinema which now serves as the cultural hub for Brixton with a cafe downstairs and a great live-music venue upstairs.
Brixton has an exciting social scene and its enviable nightlife makes it the heart of London’s urban scene. The Brixton Academy is one of London's most famous live venues and there is also the draw of popular venues such as The Fridge, Mass, DexClub, Plan B and The Windmill.
There is also a great choice of restaurants including Bah Humbug, serving vegetarian food and located in a crypt, Fujiyama offering Japanese noodles and the Satay Bar with a trendy mix of Malaysian and Indonesian dishes.
If all of this leaves you exhausted and you crave a little peace and tranquility, Brockwell Park provides respite in the form of walled gardens, ponds, a popular open air lido, and public tennis courts. There is also a traditional bowling green and a Regency lodge with a public tea room.
The Brixton area is formed of a mix of properties with everything from Victorian houses and conversions to inter-war semi's, purpose-built flats and ex-local authority properties. During the mid-1990’s Brixton re-invented itself as a trendy and fashionable area and has since seen an influx of young professionals moving to the area, which has transformed the property market and pushed prices up.
Brixton has a Victoria line underground station, an over-ground train station, and a host of bus routes serving destinations throughout London.
Brixton has fewer estate agents than some of the surrounding areas such as Clapham or Balham - there are currently just six agents listed on Rightmove in the SW2 postcode (two of which are based in Streatham Hill) and only four agents in SW9 (and only one of these are Brixton based). Of the five Brixton based estate agents, just two are members of both The National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) and The Property Ombudsman, and Beresford Residential are proud to be one of these two agents.
Brixton has nine letting agents listed on Rightmove across SW2 and SW9, but Beresford Residential are one of the only agents that are members of both The Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA), The Property Ombudsman for Lettings, SAFEagent and the London Rental Standard.
"As a first time renter, you can imagine how nervous I was going to see this property. Tufael was amazing, he warmly welcomed me into the property making me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed. He then shared with me his vast knowledge of both property and the local area, without being overly pushy he they pointed out all the different aspects of the flat making me feel as if I was already living there and it was perfect. Not only was he extremely knowledgable about the local area and the property but was very up front with me about all costs making me feel very comfortable. He put up with me asking silly questions, constantly call him and organising more viewings (of the same property). He also made me feel he genuinely cared about my best interests. Due to his amazing work, I put in an offer 12 hours after first seeing property bearing in mind this was the first ever property I have viewed and I'm a fussy guy. So Tufael, I thank you.Â Also Misty was very nice on the phone. 5/5 Stars"
