A lovingly developed, five bedroom Edwardian terrace, elegantly extended over three storeys with an ingenious blend of vintage style and contemporary flair. You're on the borders of Leyton and Leytonstone here, a short stroll from Epping Forest and Hollow Ponds.

IF YOU LIVED HERE...

Lovable highlights will be everywhere from the very start. Step through your smart red front door inset with vintage stained glass and lovingly restored original timber floorboards flow underfoot into your 275 square foot through lounge. In here a tranquil sage green colour scheme runs up to the original cornicing and a striking marbled mantel and ebony, tiled hearth take centre stage. Classic bistro shutters sit on the box bay window to the front while to the rear and you can step out to your garden to the rear.

At the end of the hall your 200 square foot kitchen/diner makes for another fine hosting space, Twin flanks of soft blue cabinets with chunky white worktops and a Dublin sink face each other across the slate flooring, giving way to more vintage timber underfoot in the bay windowed dining area, also home to a second stately vintage hearth. Open up those bay window doors and step out into your garden, an impeccably landscaped mix of patio and lawn flanked by timber fencing and thriving greenery. There's even a secluded gravel seating area at the end.

Upstairs and your gorgeous 220 square foot principal bedroom gets the sleeping arrangements off to a splendid start, with heaps of natural light courtesy of the box bay window, an ornate original hearth and marbled mantel, plus vintage timber floorboards and a soft grey paintjob up to the picture rail. Two more double bedrooms complete the first floor, along with your striking family bathroom, a splendid affair with freestanding teardrop tub and walk in rainfall shower, backed with gorgeous herringbone tilework.

Upstairs again for another superb double sleeper, close on 250 square feet and dual aspect between twin skylights and a Juliet balcony. Blonde hardwood floors and plentiful storage make this a wonderfully self-sufficient solace. A second impeccable bathroom sits next door, with more of that fantastic herringbone tilework running from floor to ceiling in the skylit, rainfall shower cubicle. Heaven. Bedroom number five sits to the rear, with an artfully angled window overlooking the garden.

a word from the owner...

"We have absolutely loved renovating and living in this property for the past 10 years. Its spacious living areas, huge cellar, mature garden and lovely large rooms upstairs have been perfect for our growing family and for entertaining friends. We have absolutely fantastic neighbours and friends up and down the road. Our children attend Gwyn Jones school where we have become part of a lovely community. The location is ideal as it is a short walk to Leyton, Leytonstone and Walthamstow Village, as well as walks across to Hollow Ponds and Hackney Marshes. "

Our Local Guide:
Leyton

Canterbury Road, 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.

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.
