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) and The Property Ombudsman.
"Karl has been a fantastic help from the start! Bearing in mind he had a very complicated job of managing both our needs and the landlady's, he remained professional and patient throughout the last 12 months. He was given a very difficult task of a flat that was literally falling to pieces as the months went on but he was diligent and even compassionate through every stage. We are very grateful for Karl and the rest of the team for helping us this year and we will be sure to recommend Beresford in the future!"
