4 Bedroom

This Edwardian terraced property has been totally refurbished and extended to create a modern and spacious four bedroom home that’s ideally suited to contemporary living. It’s in a great location within easy walking distance of local shops, green spaces and both Leytonstone tube and Leyton Midland Road station.


As soon as you come into the wide hallway you’ll be impressed by the considered monochrome décor that perfectly complements the original proportions and features of this property. White walls, graphite grey woodwork, wood floors and exposed brick walls combine to create a low-key luxe ambience. The wide hallway houses a neat WC and a full height storage cupboard and leads to the two large living spaces, a traditional front living room and a huge open-plan kitchen/diner at the rear. The living room is impressive yet relaxing, with a large bay window, bespoke plantation shutters and an original cast iron fireplace with an ornate tile surround. The fabulous kitchen/diner (almost 20 ft long) easily accommodates kitchen, dining and lounge areas and is full of character. A wall of bifold doors provides garden views and creates a continuous indoor/outdoor space that’s perfect for relaxed living and entertaining, and the well-equipped kitchen has smart Shaker-style fitted cabinets with discreet integrated appliances and a large central island/breakfast bar.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms. The largest is at the front and has a square bay window with plantation shutters and leafy views, and an original fireplace. The second is also a double and has garden views, whilst the third is a single and would make an ideal child/guest room or workspace depending on your requirements. The family bathroom on this floor has stunning monochrome décor, with complementary hexagonal floor and wall tiles, a traditional freestanding bath, and a fitted washbasin and WC.
The loft floor is home to the main bedroom suite. This comprises a c.20 ft long bedroom, an ensuite shower room, a full height storage cupboard, and bespoke eaves storage. The room is flooded with light from the Velux window and has far-reaching views over the rooftops through the full height double glazed doors and Juliet balcony. The sunny, southwest-facing garden is a landscaped, low-maintenance, all-weather space with a large paved terrace adjacent to the house and an artificial lawn bordered by raised beds and smart grey fencing. This echoes the simple and stylish décor that runs throughout the property.

-The local shopping parade is just moments away at the end of your road, there’s a wide range of shops, cafes, and restaurants along nearby Leyton High Road, and you’re also less than ten minutes from the popular independent stores on Francis Road.
-Transport links are good, with two train stations within easy walking distance. Leytonstone tube (a 13 minute walk) has Central Line journeys to Stratford (4 min), Liverpool Street (13 min), and Bond Street (25 min), and Leyton Midland Road (a 7 min walk) connects to the Elizabeth Line (1 stop) and the Victoria Line (2 stops).
-There’s good access to green spaces which range from small local parks (Abbotts Park just five minutes away has grassland, a playground, table tennis, tennis courts and fitness equipment) to Leyton Flats and Epping Forest which are ideal for longer walk or bike rides.

word from the expert...

"Being a country girl at heart, for me Wanstead is the perfect blend of village/city living. With excellent transport links into the city, I often meet up with friends to explore the wonders of London. But I also enjoy going for long, leafy walks with Hollow Ponds and Wanstead Park on my doorstep. I was first attracted to Wanstead by its charming High Street, lush green spaces and choice of excellent schools. Since moving here, I have discovered some new favourites — for breakfast La Bakerie, lunch at Otto and The Duke for the best roast around. I love to stay active, and here in Wanstead you have lots to choose from. From organised yoga at Christ Church Green, personal training sessions at Target Fit or jogging around the various nature trails of Epping Forest. There is a great sense of community here in Wanstead, with informative Facebook groups, street parties, a monthly farmers’ market and the local jumble trail. I have made many friends locally, there is a genuine community spirit here and I am proud to call Wanstead my home." JOSEPH EARNSHAW E11 BRANCH MANAGER

Our Local Guide:

Cavendish Drive, Leytonstone — Stow Brothers

There’s more to Leytonstone than first meets the eye. Say the name to one person and they might think of the grand houses around Hollow Ponds, while say it to someone else and they’ll mention burgeoning South Leytonstone, or maybe the popular Bushwood. There are many different pockets, but they’re all united by the same inclusive community who recognise that it’s the balance of it all that makes Leytonstone so great.

The centre is arguably the high street with its eclectic shops and eateries, but you only have to venture slightly further away and you’ll come across hidden gems like bar Filly Brook on Grove Green Road, music venue Luna Lounge in Bushwood, or the The Hitchcock Hotel in Upper Leytonstone. Travel a little beyond and you’ll find further contrast with the vast green space that Hollow Ponds and the Wanstead Flats provide. Simply put, you’ll never get bored in Leytonstone.

Transport links

Just two stops from Stratford, Leytonstoners can nip to the Kent coast with surprising ease, but Central London or the City on the tube might be more useful - the former takes about 25 mins and the latter 15 mins. Easy.

Great Pubs

Too many pubs to choose from… What a problem to have. With The Red Lion, Heathcote and Star, The Hitchcock Hotel, The North Star, Leytonstone Tavern, locals are spoilt for choice. Better bring your pub crawl A-game if you visit.

Plenty of period property

Despite all the urban bustle, Leytonstone has an abundance of wide, tree-lined streets brimming Victorian and Edwardian property, ranging from the grand homes in Upper Leytonstone, a stone’s throw from Hollow Ponds, to the many terraces of South Leytonstone, and the popular community of Bushwood with its active residents’ association.
