At home in Brixton
One of London’s most hip and buzzing neighbourhoods, as well as home to a large Caribbean community who moved into the area at the end of the Second World War, Brixton is today a melting pot of cultures and communities. However, this hasn’t always been the case, as the neighbourhood was once best known for the riots that engulfed the area back in the 1980’s.
Desirable Property Types
From Georgian and mid-Victorian properties, to mid-20th century and modern homes, Brixton offers a varied choice of properties. Many of the area’s larger, mansions have since been turned into flats, but a few complete properties still remain on a number of roads around the Brixton Hill area.
Brixton provides a real variety of amenities that includes high street stores along Brixton Road, independently run Caribbean shops and trendy bars that attract the area’s young and trendy crowd. However, it’s Brixton Market and nearby Pop Brixton that are really worth venturing into the neighbourhood for with their array of international cafes and trendy boutiques.
Found on the Underground, Brixton station provides quick and easy access to central London via the Victoria Line, while Brixton railway station has regular Southeastern trains running to Victoria and Orpington in Kent. Meanwhile, Brixton Road sees plenty of regular buses passing through into central or south London.
Brixton is called home by a mix of young professionals and lower income families who are drawn into the area for its lively atmosphere and relatively cheap housing costs. However, many of the Brixton’s young professionals don’t stay for long, often moving out of the area as they climb up the property ladder.

The Homyze Story
Whilst working on projects across London, Adam and Andrew were constantly asked by friends to refer a good plumber or carpenter. As property obsessives, Adam and Andrew were only too happy to help. They know what it is like to get your dream home. Or how annoying it can be if something is just not quite right.
When following up to make sure that they were happy with the work that had been done, Adam and Andrew realised that this was what the home services and construction industries were sorely lacking: quality customer service.
Quality tradespeople and excellent customer service were introduced and they got on fabulously. One thing led to another, and Homyze was born. We're really proud of what Homyze has done so far... she's growing up so fast but this is just the beginning. We know we will change the way in which people think about getting help with their home.
