a word from the owner...

"We've lived here now for 5 years, initially renting the property before purchasing from the previous owners. We love the area and feel it's the perfect balance of quieter city living whilst being a short walk to excellent transport links as well as things to see and do. We often walk 10 minutes to the Olympic Park and love spending our weekends down at the bustling Hackney Wick, soaking up the atmosphere and discovering places to eat and drink. We love Barge East for summer drinks in the garden or their excellent "trio" roast dinner on a Sunday - we even had our wedding reception on the barge! We're also only a 15 minute walk or a short bus ride to Westfield Stratford City. Having the garden has been amazing throughout our time here. It's green, quiet and private. We love sitting out on the decking in the morning with a coffee and listening to the birds. There's a lovely community feel to the street, with lots of families and annual events. This was our ideal first home, with great commuting options into the city and equally great access to green spaces like Epping Forest. It's only an hour on the fast train too to get to the coast! We recommend this area to all of our friends looking for somewhere to live in London. Those from outside London, including the family, love paying us a visit!"

Our Local Guide:
Stratford

Colegrave 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.
