2 Bedroom s

A gorgeously appointed, two bedroom apartment, lovingly laid out across the upper floors of a substantial Victorian conversion. Bright and impeccably finished throughout, you're just a short walk from Epping Forest and Leytonstone tube.

You're also ideally placed for the Sir Alfred Hitchcock Hotel. Now reimagined by the team behind The Ivy, overlooking the forest and still the perfect spot to watch the sun go down over the trees. All less than a half mile on foot.


You'll climb the stairs to be greeted by your prisitnely finished, softly carpeted split level landing, with plenty of natural light flowing down from upstairs. Let's start in your 200 square foot front reception, where classic white shutters adorn the windows, smart ash hardwood runs underfoot and walls are finished in a tranquil pale powder grey.

Down the hall your kitchen's smartly decked out in sleek, seamless white cabinets, topped with timber-style worktops and home to a full suite of integrated appliances. Next door your bathroom's a stately affair, tiled in large deep grey letterboxes from floor to ceiling, while your first floor bedroom's a sizeable double with twin curtained storage alcoves. Finally, your skylit loft sleeper totals more than 150 square feet, below large skylights.

Outside and Leytonstone tube station is less than ten minutes walk for the central line and direct, fourteen minute runs to Liverpool Street (putting the City less than a half hour away door to door). Heading to the West End? Tottenham Court Road is just nine minutes further. Alternatively, if you want to escape into nature, take the ten minute walk into Epping Forest to Hollow Ponds, where you can hire row boats and explore the waterways with friendly ducks in tow.


- Leyton's foodie destination of Francis Road is well worth the twenty minute stroll, for the likes of Albert & Francis cafe, Yardarm Wines and Dreamhouse Records. Even highly sought after Walthamstow Village, with its unmatched range of diverse, independent wining and dining establishments, is less than ten minutes away by bike.
- You have off street parking to the front and drivers can be travelling the arterial North Circular in a little over ten minutes.
- For your new local be sure to check out the sumptuous surroundings of the Red Lion Pub, Hotel & Ballroom, less than a half mile away on foot.

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 Gray, 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. Leytonstone Library is a great place to visit if you’re feeling studious and Leytonstone Leisure centre is close by for the more actively minded. Wanstead Park, in the former grounds of Wanstead House, takes in walking trails, cycle paths and several ornamental lakes — a great place to relax, exercise and soak up some local history. 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:

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.
