Why Move to Brixton?
Sitting within the London Borough of Lambeth, another of London’s very centrally located districts, Brixton is a lively, multicultural community with a down-to-earth vibe.
Like so many regions across the capital, during the past 10 years or so Brixton has become a go to destination and a sought-after property hot spot.
Just like Clapham, Notting Hill and Shoreditch it has undergone an incredible transformation which has led to an influx of new buyers willing to pay high prices to live here.
The abundance of green space, transport links and local culture has brought in everyone from new parents to young entrepreneurial types flexing their creative wings and starting new businesses.
Traditionally, Brixton has been home to a large Afro-Caribbean population, not to mention a melting pot of various Asian and Middle Eastern communities, together with bohemians, poets, musicians, writers, and artists all adding to its immensely colourful character.
Attracting thousands, Brixton Market is the very epicentre of life here, and you can usually buy anything from vintage clothing, ackee and saltfish to fromage, bread and champagne.
Definitely not a place to move to if you crave peace and quiet, the unconventional district is crammed with major music venues that contribute to the area’s energetic nightlife.
Electric Avenue, one of the first streets in the UK to be lit by electricity, is a sure place to sample Brixton’s food, music and its culture in general.
Playing host to a wide range of open spaces there is always somewhere outdoors to get some fresh air and entertain the children.
Brockwell park is among one of the local haunts featuring play areas, gardens, sport courts, bowling greens and much more.
All areas of the capital are accessible as Brixton is very well-connected by road and bus links, and Brixton Tube station in the centre of it all, is at the southern end of the accredited Victoria line.
Brixton Schools & Education
Parents are attracted to Brixton not just for its wonderful amenities but its reputation as having some very good schools.
Following their most recent inspections by the Governments education watchdog Ofsted, a number of local state schools have scored very highly, among them are Sudbourne Primary School, St Jude’s Church of England Primary School and Jessop Primary School.
Choices for secondary aged students include; Platanos College, Ark Evelyn Grace Academy, The Michael Tippett School and Harris Academy.
For private education, a popular choice is Herne Hill prep school for 2-7 years. Spread across several sites catering for different age groups it is recommended by The Good Schools Guide.
Further education is available at a number of establishments including Lambeth College, Morley College and South Bank Engineering UTC, a new engineering specialist school for 14-to-19-year-olds.
Things to do in Brixton.
There is never a dull moment when you live in Brixton that is for sure.
Here are what is known to be just a few of the highlights Brixton has to offer:
The O2 Academy Brixton is a much-loved live music venue, a 5000-capacity former cinema with sloping floor and art deco interior.
Brixton Windmill, one of only a dozen working mills in London, was reopened in 2011 after a Lottery grant and the tireless work of a local community group. Book a tour of this unique 200-year-old building where you can buy freshly ground flour or come to one of the many organised events, they hold each year.
Brixton Market sells goods from all over the world, it is primarily known for its wide range of food and goods from Africa and the Caribbean.
Shopping in Brixton Village is an experience all of its own. Wall art is everywhere. There are plenty of unusual and unique clothing stores and ethnic jewellery stores.
Catch a movie at one of the UK’s largest independent cinemas, the beautiful Ritzy Picture House. It is housed in a Grade ll Listed, has five screens, two bars and live events every night.
As the district has been subject to considerable post-war development, and extensive regeneration in the last few years its popularity as a place to call home has gone from strength to strength.
Beautiful Georgian and Victorian terraces line Brixton’s streets, many of which have been converted into enviable period apartments mirroring those in much-lauded Clapham.
Although there is definitely a mix of property styles for sale it is Brixton’s Victorian terraced houses and mansion flats, with a few Georgian terraces along Brixton Road which attract the most attention from buyers.
However, as more people head south, new developments such as The Electric Quarter and Brixton Centric have sprung up giving ever more choice. So, what will you pay to live here?
With 1884 on the market within ½mile from Brixton, you certainly do have a good choice.
