A uniquely characterful two bedroom home just off Wanstead High Street. The bespoke biophillic design makes generous use of natural light, vintage timbers and flourishing greenery, bringing the outside in for a glorious cottage atmosphere.

Wanstead High Street is just moments away, for superb transport links, fresh produce suppliers and a superb range wining and dining establishments.


You'll be enjoying all the love, skill and attention that's been poured into this unique refurbishment. The expertly extended kitchen/diner totals an impressive 300 square feet, home to royal blue cabinets, marbled counters and a stainless steel range oven. Decorative ivy winds round the natural timber beams overhead, and all manner of other thriving pots and planters decorate the designer timber paneling to the walls.

It's a space made for greenery, and bringing the outside in. Twin skylights overhead bathe everything with natural light, while bi-folding doors can be thrown all the way back to open up the rear garden. Here a timber deck gives way to a generous patio, surrounded by bespoke timber seating, trellises and thriving beds. Artfully lit, it's a particularly striking night time spot. Moving further inside, there's a 150 square foot reception laid open to the kitchen.

Your main lounge sits to the front, finished in pale forest green with grey trim on the windows and shutters, plus a matching vintage hearth. Upstairs and your skylit bathroom's another showstopper with freestanding clawfoot tub and a rainfall shower, while bedroom two's a generous double with original floorboards. Finally your principal bedroom is nothing less than a masterpiece of vintage style, with suspended filament lighting, bespoke fitted storage and a timber feature wall.

Outside and Wanstead High Street, the bustling heart of this much loved East London village, is less than five minutes away on foot. Backing onto the natural spaces of memorial green and Christ Church Green, the rural atmosphere is the perfect match for your new home. Here you'll find independent cafes, gastropubs, an artisanal butcher and dedicated fishmongers. For sumptuous Sunday Roasts check out The Bull. Formerly The Manor House, it's new name is a nod to Wanstead's old roaming cattle. Relax with a real ale or fine wine in the huge beer garden.


- Snaresbrook tube station is just five minutes away and sits in zone three on the central line for direct sixteen minute runs to Liverpool Street. Meaning you have the City around a mere twenty minutes away door to door.
- Your loft space is accessed via a hatch on the landing, next to a handy home working nook. With the loft so far untouched you could potentially follow your neighbours' lead and add a whole new storey (subject to the usual permissions).
- Parents will be pleased to know that you have ten primary/secondary schools rated 'Good' or 'Outstanding' by Ofsted less than a mile away on foot. The 'Outstanding' Wanstead Church School is just a quarter mile stroll.

a word from the owner.....

"When we moved into the property almost eight years ago, we were having quite a challenging time and moving into our home in Wanstead from West London was a real turning point for us. Not long after moving in we got our beautiful dog, Indy and were able to immediately enjoy all of the local parks and green spaces on our doorstep whilst noticing how friendly and neighbourly everyone was. We immediately felt at home, and what was already a lovely high street with a villagey feel just continued to get better and better over the years. There are a number of local pubs, restaurants and coffee shops within a 5 minute walk or less from our house...not to mention a babysitting neighbour that enables us to enjoy them. And, as if The Ginger Pig, local fishmonger, organic greengrocers and bakeries aren't enough, there is also a local farmers market that pops up on the first Sunday of every month to enjoy - on a sunny day the atmosphere on the high street and local green is bustling with activity. All of that combined with the close proximity to Wanstead and Snarebrook tube stations which enable you to get into the city and Westfield Shopping Centre within 20-30 minutes means that you would be hard pushed to find a better location in London."

Our Local Guide:

Cowley Road, Wanstead — Stow Brothers

Thanks to its royal connections and grand properties, Wanstead has previously been compared to the likes of Twickenham and Richmond, although East Londoners are quick to point out that it has plenty enough merits of its own. 

For a start, despite its villagey feel, it’s proudly nestled within London’s most creative quadrant and only a short hop on the Central line from the bright lights of the City. There’s also an abundance of green space – Wanstead Flats, Epping Forest, Wanstead Park and Chalet Wood, with the seasonal display of bluebells in the latter just calling out for an accompanying picnic from one of the well-stocked local delis or cafes. But that’s not to say that Wanstead’s charming pubs and restaurants aren’t delightful to look at themselves – it’ll be deciding which to go for that’s the problem.
