3 Bedroom

1 Bath

An elegantly appointed three bedroom, semi detached 1930s home with a south-west facing garden and heaps developmental potential. You're perfectly positioned by Hatch Lane's cluster of amenities, with the greenery of Epping Forest moments away.

Just five minutes' walk will bring you to this ancient woodland, where you can follow the River Ching south to Highams Park. Ideal for relaxing in nature or hitting fitness goals, it's also home to Highams Park Lake, The Boathouse kayak and canoe club and incredible views.


You'll be relaxing in your sumptuous 185 square foot lounge with a partial bow window, built-in fireplace, television and storage, and walnut herringbone flowing underfoot. It's all laid semi open plan to the kitchen for a dual aspect and natural light throughout. The new heart of your new home's your huge 300 square feet kitchen/diner, with more of those sublime herringbone floorboards, a Hague blue kitchen island with breakfast bar, and a Belfast sink sunk into a smart suite of cabinets. Recessed spotlights twinkle overhead, and the dining area overlooks the garden.

Step through the floor to ceiling patio doors for your seventy foot, south-west-facing garden. Here a pristine timber sun deck leads to lush lawn and a patio with a generous al fresco dining area - that side access making it perfect for parties. Your 210 square foot garage is also here and suitable for turning to all manner of uses. Head back inside and the first floor's completed by a beautiful WC dressed in luxury wallpaper, timber panelling, and striking brass flourishes.

Pad up the carpeted stairs for your 165 square foot principal bedroom. With a curved window letting light flow over cosy carpet and built-in mirrored storage, this is a tempting prospect indeed. Two more impeccable bedrooms await, one a generous double of 125 square feet and the other a substantial single. Lastly, your dual aspect family bathroom's a jaw-dropping space sporting an onyx-paned walk-in rainfall shower, curved standalone tub and a floating sink.

Outside and Highams Park overground station is a sixteen minute stroll or four minute cycle away and will get you directly to Liverpool Street in twenty three minutes. West End bound? Walthamstow Central is just two stops away for the Victoria line. If it's a drizzly day or you just don't feel like walking then the 212 bus stops around the corner and will whisk you straight to both Highams Park or Chingford stations.


- You have a choice of eighteen primary/secondary schools in a one mile radius rated ‘Good' or better by Ofsted. Three of these have ‘Outstanding' status.
- The private driveway and garage will come in handy. Drivers can be on the arterial North Circular in just seven minutes, and speeding out of London on the M11 six minutes later.
- With your loft space so far undeveloped you also have scope to add your own whole new storey as some of your neighbours have done (subject to the usual permissions). This is a home that can grow with you.

a word from the expert...

"I enjoy the outdoors as well as the hustle and bustle of the city, so Chingford is the perfect spot. With Epping Forest on the doorstep, cycling, hiking and exploring are only a hop away. The amazing transport links can take you into the city in less than half hour. With Chingford Mount and North Chingford to choose from for a pub, restaurant and café means you’respoilt for choice. The Rusty Bike is a personal favourite to grab some Thai food, have a beer or the watchsports. The Kings Head is great for Weekends. The beer garden is perfect in the summer and in the colder months you can warm up inside with a roast dinner. The diversity of the locals is what makes Chingford great — there are loads of international takeaway restaurants and supermarkets, where I’m constantly discovering new tastes and flavours. The perfect evening spot for dog walking is Yates Meadow, where you can see across the city vista for miles. The tranquillity of the hills with the high-rise buildings in the distance creates a juxtaposition that feels really special. Chingford has something to offer for almost every buyer. From stunning period properties overlooking golf courses or Epping Forest. To brand-new builds perfect for getting on to the property ladder for first time buyers."

Our Local Guide:

Blackthorne Drive, Chingford — Stow Brothers

Chingford has flourished more quickly than people have caught on in recent years, making it something of a well kept secret for locals (it wasn’t us who told you). Full of village charm but only 26 minutes from central London, it’s easy to see the appeal. 

With sprawling parks in the centre and the 6,000-acre Epping Forest lining the northern boundary, there’s more open space than you can shake a native hornbeam stick at, no wonder that Chingford has spawned two England football captains in recent decades. 

For those looking to refuel after burning off all that energy in nature, there’s a thriving food and drink scene, although let’s be clear that the area’s admired status pre-dates the macchiato. Local historical landmark the Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge was built for Henry VIII way back in 1543.
