3 Bedroom

Perfectly nestled in between the greenery of the Olympic Park and Wanstead Flats, this stylish three-bedroom Victorian house is bursting with character, with a private rear garden, two reception rooms, downstairs WC and first floor bathroom, plus countless other features including sash windows, timber flooring and spotless decor. It already comes in at 992 square feet (excluding the cellar), but there’s potential to extend it further, which will be great for peace of mind.

You’ll never be short of essentials or tasty treats since you’ve got a huge array of amenities on your doorstep, but if you need to travel further afield, Maryland station is a 10 minute walk away, where you can be transported to the West End in less than 20 minutes via the Elizabeth line. That’s just half an hour door-to-door if you time it right!


You’ll love the level of consideration that has gone into restoring this home in a timeless style that will still appeal for many, many years to come. The front garden has been beautifully designed, showcasing the property’s stunning brickwork in all its glory.

Your front reception room is bright and beautiful with its warm original flooring and neural palette, as well old and new features such as the bespoke shutters, sash windows, column radiators, period fireplace and ornate coving. The rear reception, which is just as stylish, would make a fantastic dining room - and there’s a fantastic flow of light throughout the two spaces.

Beyond the convenient ground floor WC and access to the cellar, the kitchen is a masterclass in simplicity, with beautiful timber units, sleek worktops and integrated appliances. Beyond the rear doors, you’ll find a beautiful garden surrounded by lush, leafy foliage which bring an air of tranquility and seclusion.

On the first floor, you’ve got three immaculately finished bedrooms, as well as a family-sized bathroom, which has been impeccably designed.

Beyond, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to green spaces; less than 10 minutes away on foot, Langthorne Park has sports courts, ornamental gardens and a children's play area. The favoured hunting ground of Henry VIII, Wanstead Flat is less than a mile away, as is the Olympic Park, which can be access via the striking VeloPark and East Village.

Because you’re nicely nestled between Leyton, Leytonstone and Forest Gate, you have plenty of choice when it comes to food and drink. Winchelsea Road is a short hop on foot and has an excellent selection of drinking and dining spots, including Pretty Decent Beer, The Wanstead Kitchen and Wild Goose Bakery. You’ve got the much lauded Singburi (Time Out’s favourite), or even nearer, Kotch! pizzeria, where the stone-based pizzas are as warm as the atmosphere.

This handy positioning means transport is never a problem. Maryland station is 10 mins away, which means you can enjoy the perks that the Crossrail Elizabeth line brings, while Leyton tube on the Central line is 18 minutes on foot.

- New local? Just 12 minutes away on foot, the Cart and Horses has a lot of history under its belt (it’s the very venue where Iron Maiden first took to stage), but after a refurbishment it’s ready for a new era. As well as the gig calendar, it’s got a great selection of drinks.
-You’ll never be stuck for essentials since there’s an abundance of convenience stores nearby, plus you’re only a short hop to Westfield Stratford.
-Parents will be pleased to learn that you have numerous primary/secondaries nearby.

a word from the owners.......

"We've really loved living in this house and it's been quite the journey renovating it. The overwhelming feeling of living here is one of calmness, particularly in the main bedroom, and the treetop views in every direction making you feel like you're in a protected oasis away from the world. We love the way the way the sun hits through the front of the house in the morning and when lounging in the backyard on a summer’s afternoon. We have enjoyed many walks with our dog in the unkempt green splendour of Wanstead Flats and beyond, providing a well needed daily escape from city life. South Leytonstone is extremely well connected, especially with the Lizzie Line a mere 10 minute walk away. We enjoy (sometimes too much) the wine bars, bakeries and pubs in nearby Forest Gate, Leyton and Hackney Wick, all of which offers the urban convenience and electric buzz of EastLondon but with legroom to make most Londoners jealous."

Our Local Guide:

Borthwick Road, Stratford — Stow Brothers

Given it’s been almost a decade since the Olympic torch touched down in Stratford, it’s probably time to let this part of East London shine on its own. It truly is a destination in its own right, with a multitude of restaurants, bars and pubs cropping up in the area, and that’s before we’ve even mentioned one of the largest shopping centres in Europe. Yep, Westfield might draw most visitors to the area, but Stratford’s Market Village is a hidden gem and where you’ll get a true flavour of the community.

Of course, we do have to acknowledge the legacy of the London 2012 Games and the regeneration it brought to the area, including the soon to be opened East Bank. With the former Olympic venues open to the public, residents have an incredibly advanced sport and fitness facilities, while the ArcelorMittal Orbit, the world’s longest helter skelter, is quite literally Stratford’s standout feature.

Transport links

Stratford’s quite the hub. With the launch of the Crossrail, it is now on the Elizabeth line, while high-speed trains already travel between Stratford International and Ashford. The Overground runs to North London, while the Jubilee line and DLR go to Canary Wharf. Finally, London Underground’s Central line nips to the West End.

Vibrant shopping district

What can’t you get in Stratford? It really is a shopper’s delight, with everything from the luxury boutiques, high street retailers and department stores at Westfield Stratford, to the essential shops and market stalls within the Stratford Centre, and the independent stores of the East Village.

Recent regeneration/Post-Olympics

A key aim for the successful London 2012 Games bid was the wider regeneration of the area, which has resulted in one of the world’s largest cultural districts, East Bank. Universities UCL and UAL’s London College of Fashion will join the BBC, Sadler’s Wells and the V&A, opening 2022-2023.
