3 Bedroom

A substantial three bedroom 1930’s family home set in the ever popular Highams Park neighbourhood. This home has what we call in the trade good bones and is the perfect blank canvas. From the larger than average footprint (over 1000 sq ft!), to the downstairs WC and huge garden with separate garage, this lovely home has untapped potential. With a strong precedent for extending on the street (STPP) you could even extend outwards or upwards. Although in need of cosmetic modernisation, this well loved family home is offered chain free and is waiting for you to come and put your stamp on it.


This handsome home has plenty of kerb appeal thanks to its position set back from the pavement, with a large paved front garden. Inside you have a porch, handy for kicking off muddy boots - fresh from a stomp around neighbouring Highams Park. You have two reception rooms on the ground floor, as well as a kitchen with adjoining conservatory and downstairs WC. This versatile ground floor space could stay as is, or you could create a large through-lounge or equally impressive kitchen diner.

Doors from both the rear reception and the conservatory lead to that stunning garden, which has a mature and well manicured lawn as well as paved areas for garden furniture. The garage is a fantastic size and could easily be converted into a home office, and there is rear / side access as well.

Upstairs, you have three generously sized bedrooms as well as the family bathroom. The broad and bright hallway features original stained glass windows, a charming nod to the history of this home. The two bedrooms to the front have bay windows, ensuring the light floods in and the bedroom to the rear has some handy built-in wardrobes.

Outside, and the rolling greenery of Highams Park is just three minutes on foot, perfect for morning jogs, evening strolls and taking in the tremendous views over London. There's also the beloved Highams Park Lake, created at the turn of the century by landscape gardener Humphry Repton and more recently made famous by Blue Peter. Be sure to pay a visit to Humphry's Cafe at the south end of the park.


- Highams Park station, with direct twenty three minute connections to Liverpool Street, is just a fifteen minute stroll. Walthamstow Central is just two stops and five minutes down for a quick swap to the Victoria line.
- Parents will be pleased to know you have a pair of 'Outstanding' rated primary schools less than a mile away on foot, and another pair of 'Outstanding' secondaries just as close.
- Your new local is the much-loved Larkshall gastropub, just a ten minute walk away. Family friendly and with a delicious menu.

Our Local Guide:
Highams Park

Balliol Avenue, Highams Park — Stow Brothers

Not everyone in the capital has heard of Highams Park, and that’s only a good thing. Although it’s well connected to Central London on the Overground to Liverpool Street, it’s tucked out of sight enough to ensure that the picturesque woodland and coffee shops have a slightly exclusive feel. That’s not to say that the locals are a cliquey bunch though – far from it, they’ve been welcoming savvy families and individuals after a little more bang for their buck for years. 

All the extra space offered up from Epping Forest and Highams Park itself might be the main draw, but newcomers stay for the perks; the silver-lining of the secret slowly getting out is a vibrant and buzzing community which has created a lively food and drink scene.
