7 Bedrooms

3 Baths

A unique architectural achievement, fascinating find and an unprecedented opportunity. Formally a pair of twin Victorian townhouses, a huge property with seven bedrooms, plus multiple social and study areas and vast outside spaces front and back.

Your location befits the splendour of the property itself. High Road Leyton, Leytonstone station and the vast greenery of Epping Forest are all less than a half mile away on foot. With excellent schools, natural spaces, transport connections and fine wining and dining establishments on your doorstep, you'll want for nothing here.

IF YOU LIVED HERE…

You'll have the space and opportunity to realise even your wildest dreams. The property made up of two former four bedroom houses is seamlessly connected via the matching ground floor hallways and the first floor master bedrooms. Taking in the huge log cabin in the garden, and substantial skylit loft space (but excluding the twin cellars) the entire estate comes in at nearly 5000 square feet.

Exploring the hallways and reception rooms, the sheer scope of this one-of-a-kind property is breathtaking. You have nearly thirty distinct spaces including seven bedrooms, four bathrooms and two kitchens, allowing you to accommodate the largest of extended families. And with so much space to arrange as you see fit – a through lounge here, a conference room there – the property's investment value is self-evidently unsurpassed.

Design & Decor is unfailingly immaculate throughout, with a spectrum of styles ranging from sleek contemporary to cosy vintage. You have high end contemporary design touches as well, from the Dyson airblade in the skylit downstairs WC to the air conditioning units in selected reception rooms and bedrooms. Original features abound, with ceiling mouldings, vintage floorboards and ornate turned balustrades appearing here and there to speak to the property's Victorian heritage.

Highlights of a property this palatial are too numerous to run down exhaustively, but among our favourite features is the 390 square feet log cabin in your garden, itself almost entirely protected from the elements by a huge covered pergola. Entirely finished in rich timber with classic terracotta flooring underfoot the possibilities here, as everywhere else, are endless. This huge, immaculate studio space and the many more within could be the perfect launch pad for any one of a constellation of new lives and ventures.

Outside, and the vast natural wilderness of Epping Forest starts just seven minutes away. Perfect for morning jogs and evening strolls, a little exploration will bring you to the tranquil blue waters of Hollow Ponds, where you can hire row boats and explore the waterways. Finally, turn to the newly refurbished Sir Alfred Hitchcock Hotel, recently reimagined by the team behind London's The Ivy with The Rear View Window Restaurant. The perfect place to watch the sun go down over the trees. It's still just a half mile from your twin front doors.

WHAT ELSE?

- As noted, your front driveway is vast, setting everything nicely back from the road and offering ample space for four or more cars. Drivers can be on the North Circular in just over five minutes.
- Local schools are plentiful and excellent. You have seventeen primary/secondaries nearby, all less than a mile away and all rated 'Good' or better by Ofsted. Five have been deemed 'Outstanding'.
- Leytonstone tube is less than a half mile away on foot and will whisk you directly to Liverpool Street in just fourteen minutes via the speedy Central line, putting the City well within a half hour away door-to-door. Tottenham Court Road for the West End is just nine minutes further.

a word from the expert.....

"Leytonstone is a unique, eclectic area, with great gastro pubs like Leytonstone Tavern and The Red Lion to bistro cafés like The Wild Goose Bakery and Grays, along with the open green space of Wanstead Flats, a serene getaway from the hustle and bustle of urban life. The area is full of history, with interesting, beautiful Grade II listed buildings like St John’s Baptist Church (built in 1832) and Leytonstone House, the 18th-century home of Sir Edward Buxton, notable MP and conservationist. There’s also St Andrew’s Church, built in 1886–1893 as a memorial to local philanthropist William Cotton. With an array of buses and the Central line underground station close by, you can be in the City and surrounding areas within minutes." JOSEPH EARNSHAW E11 BRANCH MANAGER

Our Local Guide:
Leytonstone

Colworth Road, 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.
