About this listing
Our beautiful little studio space has a modern feel and is brilliantly located for all the fun of local Brixton. It's also very easy to get around London from here and takes only 15-20 minutes to get to Oxford Circus on the tube. Wifi very strong!
Our Garden studio is a beautifully converted former garage/coachouse. We have lived in the house next door since 1998 and know the area very well. We are now selling the property in order to downsize in London but the studio is still available to rent for a few months.
PLEASE NOTE, AirBnB photos exaggerate the size of the space so please don't be disappointed. The space is "bijou". (small but perfectly formed!)
FLOOR PLANS are placed in the PHOTOS section.
The neighbourhood is quiet and safe, with EXCELLENT TRANSPORTATION to the centre......
10-15 minutes walk from Clapham North and Brixton tube stations. Max 15-20 minutes away from any site in the centre.
Brixton centre has a very positive vibe and the relatively recent regeneration of Brixton village has brought the area on to the the London FOODIE map...MORLEYS department store has pretty much everything, including a Top Shop outlet and a MAC counter. Clothes shops include very good value H and M, New Look and TK Max.
The Brixton Lido in Brockwell Park has a super Gym and an outdoor pool.
The total space of this property is approx 16 square meters. Tall ceilinged, but the sleeping platform is only 1.2 metres high so its a bit of a struggle for "oldies" I've been told.
The Wet room (bathroom) is spacious and has a large Powershower and is tiled in black slate. (You will find little extras such as cotton pads, earbuds, deodorant, shower gel).
There's a hair dryer and Washer Drier machine
The sleeping platform has a double mattress fitted with Egyptian cotton linen, duvet and comfortable pillows.
We supply you with towels.
There is a TV /radio and Wi-Fi connection is very good as broadband has just been installed
Breakfast isn't included but the cooking facilities are excellent with an electric hob, oven and fridge. Ideal for preparing your packed lunch for the day or a cosy dinner at home. Sainsbury's supermarket at the end of the road has everything you need and there are plenty of take aways in the area too if you don't feel like cooking.
The cupboards are full of oils, herbs and spices, tea, coffee, sugar and you'll find mineral water and a few English items in the fridge such as mustard, jam etc.
We're about 10 mins walk from either Clapham OR Brixton and in a nice quiet street so you'll be able to enjoy a lie in if you've had a late night.
You'll probably be met by Shona Woodburne who lives nearby.
If there's anything you need that isn't in the studio, we're happy to try and provide it.
Interaction with Guests
We are living on the other side of London at the moment, but available via mobile or email at any time.
It's a really quiet area. Away from the city..... but central. Brixton has a lovely "local" feel, is multicultural and colourful with lots of great places to eat and drink
The public transport is fabulous! There are nearly ten buses at the end of the road that take you to nearly everywhere in London! and there are two underground stations, (Clapham North and Brixton) only 10-12 minutes walk away.
