This handsome Victorian freehold corner property is a rare commodity. With 1,784 square feet of space over three floors, a garden and a garage in a prime residential location in Leyton close to shops and within easy walking distance of two stations, it has plenty of potential for adding value.


You’d have a huge amount of space to play with. In its current configuration the property comprises commercial spaces on the ground and basement floors, and a three bedroom apartment on the ground and first floor.

The property is in a good condition throughout, but there’s considerable scope for adding value by extension or change of use (or both), subject to obtaining planning permission.

The 27’9” by 16’9” commercial space has a large glass corner frontage with double doors and partly frosted NE and NW facing windows that provide fantastic natural light without too much solar gain. There’s a small kitchenette tucked away at the rear and double glazed doors to the garden. All-white décor complements a large feature exposed brick wall, and an open stair leads down to the basement space, which measures a huge 31’11” by 16’1”. This has a small WC.

The apartment occupies the rear section of the ground floor and all the first floor. It’s accessed via a street door on Leasowes Road that leads directly into a hallway with a door to the main living space, a stair to the first floor, and a built-in storage cupboard. The open-plan living/dining room is over 31 ft long and comprises a lounge area and a kitchen with a door to the garden. There’s lots of light from windows on two sides.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms and a bathroom. The main bedroom is a generously sized 17’1” by 11’9”, whilst the second and third bedrooms have garden views. The tiled bathroom has a contemporary suite with a bath, and a window for daylight and ventilation. The décor throughout the apartment is fresh and simple with white walls and grey carpet or floor tiles. The windows are double glazed and there’s gas central heating.

Outside, there’s a lovely low maintenance walled garden with a paved terrace that wraps round the property and a central lawn bordered by beds. An independent brick garage at the end of the garden has space for one car but, with electrics, and windows and a door onto the garden, it also has great potential as a garden studio. There’s also a handy outdoor WC in the side return section of the garden and a gate leading to the street.


- The property is in a primarily residential area that’s conveniently close to the many shops and amenities along the Lea Bridge Road just five minutes’ walk away.

- It’s just an eight minute walk to the nearest green space, Leyton Jubilee Park, and within walking distance of the open green spaces of Hackney Marshes and world-class sporting facilities of the Olympic Park, both about a mile away.

- The area is well-connected, with Leyton Midland Road overground station less than 15 minutes away on foot and Lea Bridge Station just under a mile away.

a word from the expert...

"Leyton is a well-hidden gem that people haven’t yet fully explored. Francis Road is one of area’s most celebrated spots and it never disappoints. It’s buzzing with cafés, delis, shops and restaurants — the perfect afternoon or weekend destination. The Olympic Park is just around the corner, great for all the amazing concerts, sporting events and festivals that are held there all year round. Getting into central London couldn’t be any easier, with Leyton Midland overground station as well as the Central underground line both right on the doorstep. And did I mention that Jubilee Park, with its café, outdoor gym and pirate-themed playground, is perfect for a relaxing Sunday walk?" KENAN KRKIC E10 SENIOR SALES ADVISOR

Our Local Guide:

Capworth Street, 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.
