The best ever Christmas gift you could buy

A new tree in the corner, a cosy fire crackling, fairy lights above the mantlepiece…who doesn’t dream of settling into a brand new home for Christmas? Which is lucky, because we have some crackers on our books for sale from period cottages to super sleek modern flats. 

Here are some of our favourites. Which one of these would you like to unwrap on Christmas Day?


The Boiler House, Brixton, £1,199,995

An architectural gem. This property was formerly the old pump room for the Victorian baths on site. And while you won’t find anyone coming by to take the waters here, stunning architectural details still remain: original archways, exposed brick house, plenty of character. It has been sympathetically restored and now is a stylish home with open-plan kitchen, four bedrooms, high ceilings, plenty of timber and glass, flooding light in. Plenty of entertaining space for Christmas parties.

There is a roof terrace, off street parking and wraparound gardens. It’s in the highly sought after area of Brixton, with excellent links into central London on the Victoria line.


Peabody Cottages, Rosendale Road, Herne Hill £670,000

This period cottage is a charming terrace house within walking distance of Herne Hill station. Light floods in through generous windows and it has all the charms of the cottage in the city - wood burning stove, wooden floors, and there’s space to park the piano. Great for Christmas carols. It comes with an extra wide garden and garden office and side access, has two bedrooms a fitted kitchen and family bathroom.

Rosendale School, shops and cafes are a stone’s throw away making it a fantastic area for young families. Rosendale Road consists of a mixture of flats and cottages, built between 1902 and 1908 so you are also buying into a piece of local history. 


Ruskin Park House, Champion Hill, £650,000, 3 Bedroom Apartment

Ruskin Park House is incredibly popular with single buyers and families and has a great community feel. We have a beautiful three bedroom apartment on the second floor up for grabs, which is one of the largest properties you can buy here.  

 It’s walking distance to Denmark Hill Station, Herne Hill and the wonderful Ruskin Park.

It is spacious and bright apartment with two balconies, open plan living and space to fit 14 around the table for the perfect Christmas Day lunch.

Happy shopping!
