An immaculately appointed one bedroom apartment, part of an innovative development of this former industrial site just ten minutes from Leyton tube. Designed with the future in mind, you have an air source heat pump and solar panels.

The brainchild of Clear Architects, this site has been years in the making, and retains many of the original features and materials, along with a sleek, modern aesthetic.


Your ground floor is arranged around a slate-gravelled courtyard, surrounded by a striking mix of corrugated black steel and jet black thermowood cladding. Your courtyard also serves as a splendid lightwell, with natural light pouring in through floor to ceiling Crittal style windows. Pale engineered hardwood runs underfoot, and your kitchen is finished in warm timber cabinetry, with solid white worktops, integrated appliances and graphite trim.

Artfully arranged around the corner, your similarly styled lounge is also basking in light from that courtyard, enhanced by the original London yellow brick wall. Head up the striking open staircase, and your bedroom's a substantial double, with large skylight and an entire flank of integrated wardrobes. Finally, your bathroom completes things in fine style, with vertical micro letterbox tiling, and that signature jet black trim.

Originally adjacent to the Coach & Horses pub, before being turned to industrial use, Coach Yard's enviable location reflects its original purpose, and you're superbly placed for the best that Leyton has to offer. You're just three minutes on foot from the landscaped beauty of Coronation Gardens, perfect for everything from morning runs to afternoon picnics. A few minutes further on, around a half mile on foot, you have Leyton tube, for speedy, direct connections to the City and West end via the Central line.


- Our sought after foodie mecca of Francis Road is just five minutes on foot, for an enviable array of independent cafes and coffee spots. You also have expertly curated vintages at Yardarm Wines and racks of vinyl to explore at Dreamhouse Records.
- The whole development features wild meadow flower green roofs to increase biodiversity, reduce utility bills and further emphasise the sustainable principals underpinning the project.
- Your new local is, what else, The Coach & Horses, a much loved community pub with rich heritage, serving up delicious food, fine wines and real ales. And, of course, it's just around the corner.

a word from the architect...

"Our practice were able to convert this derelict former factory site into a bespoke development of five new homes. Our design has reinstated some original factory-style features, and the choice of materials serves as a nod to the site's industrial heritage, including corrugated black steel with contrasting Thermowood timber cladding, along with black/grey Crittal style windows. Coach Yard has a distinct modernity that complements the surrounding Victorian homes whilst maintaining the heritage of the former industrial use."

Our Local Guide:

The Coach Yard, Leyton — Stow Brothers

Assured locals barely bat an eyelid when the national press dub Leyton one of ‘best places to live’ in London – it’s been a regular feature since the 2012 London Olympics regeneration, but the area’s constant evolution means even frequent visitors can get taken aback by just how much it has going on. 

With the lively cafes on Francis Road, the bustling High Road, the family-friendly footie action and easy access to the Olympic Park, Leyton can often feel like a city within a city. What’s more, these various layers work together to create a balanced community that comes free of any pretension, so even newbies can find themselves having a natter with the locals while they explore Leyton’s latest delights. It’s an easy reach too, with the Central line connecting Leyton with the city to the west, and leafy Essex to the east.

Features + Perks

Transport links

There’s no ‘late’ in Leyton thanks to the excellent transport links. Leyton tube is on the Central line with direct trains into the City and Central London, while Leyton Midland Road is handily placed on the Overground line, as is the new-ish Lea Bridge station.

Great Pubs

Whether you want a quiet pint in the sunshine or a night of banging tunes, Leyton has you covered for pubs. With The Leyton Star, The Coach & Horses, William the Fourth, locals and visitors are spoilt for choice.

Plenty of period property

Leyton’s amenities might be largely new additions, but a lot of the property is gloriously old. Victorian and Edwardian houses are plentiful - including budget-friendly ‘doer-uppers’, and the wide tree-lined streets add further appeal.
