This is a very cosy 1 bedroom in trendy Brixton. My partner and I after more then a year in Brixton are no longer able to stay in this wonderful area of London due to work commitments. We are looking for someone to take over our contract with Foxton agency, we are not the owners. It'a a very good price looking at the average prices for 1 bedroom flats. Location is great as it is only 3 minutes walk from Brixton tube station and national rail station as are shops (local market, M&S, Sainbury’s and Tesco), Pop Brixton, Brixton market, Ritzy Cinema, clubs and bars, yoga studios and gyms - endless fun and possibilities!
The best part is that despite the liveliness, the flat is situated on the top floor of of these historical buildings that curve along Electric Avenue. You won't hear much noise from the market but with no elevator you will have to walk about 70 steps to get to your front door as it’s on the third floor but it’s a great daily work out and we’re actually quite fond of it now. The flat is also refurbished. It comes with a black marble top modern kitchen and a clean coat of paint. The living room window comes with a little standing perch that looks over Electric Avenue which is a quirky feature. If you tilt to right you can see The Shard, so technically you get 'City views'! Brockwell Park for Bonfire nights, picnics and swimming is also not too far away.
Council tax is generally £122 for this Band C flat. Varies according to your status and number of occupants of course.
Gas + electricity we spend 70 pm (depends on your spending). One of us was a student so he was home a lot.
Water 35 pm (for 2 people)
Broadband £19.50 with EE
The contract and deposit is handled by Foxtons but the building's management company will be your contact person for maintenance and anything related to the property and they have been extremely helpful and friendly throughout our tenancy here.
If you are still here you should know that originally the flat was unfurnished (well we had only the bed (new) from Landlord).
We would like the new tenants to be open to taking over our furniture. We bought them brand new from ikea and made,com and have only used them for under a year. We have estimated more than £900 worth of furnitures, but you can have them for £300, all in good nick.
You will need to provide:
- Work reference
- Landlord reference or character reference letter
- 3 months of bank statements
- Passport copy
- Proof of address
There are some substantial costs to get you started but then its quite smooth - Foxton agent and the building management have been great.
