5 Bedrooms

A magnificently mansionesque five bedroom, fully detached family home, set among huge gardens behind a substantial private driveway. Situated at the end of a peaceful no through road and backing onto nothing but The Truman Cricket Ground, you have rare rural tranquillity here, with Higham Park just moments away.

Highams Park overground station is an easy stroll away and will get you straight to Liverpool Street in just twenty seven minutes. Alternatively, ride two stops and five minutes for Walthamstow Central, and a quick swap to the Victoria line.

IF YOU LIVED HERE…

You'll be one of just five plentifully spaced properties arranged around the end of this peaceful cul de sac on an enviable sweet spot between Chingford and Highams Park. Inside you have well over 2000 square feet of living space, artfully arranged across two extensive storeys, including a substantial double garage amid immaculately landscaped, wrap around, entirely secluded gardens and expansive driveway.

Design & Decor is sleek and modern throughout, with your 290 square foot through lounge being a prime example. Rich dark hardwood runs underfoot, walls are finished in soft dove grey and there's an imposing Portuguese sandstone fireplace taking centre stage. It's all awash with natural light, with the large bay window framing leafy green views to the front and French door opening up to your impressive gardens at the rear.

Elsewhere there's a dedicated dining room between your lounge and substantial kitchen, itself also offering room for dining and smartly decked out in solid oak cabinets with plenty of workspace and home to Sub-Zero & Wolf, Miele and Fisher & Paykel appliances, including a wine fridge. Step out from here onto your curvaceous sheltered patio, ideal for garden parties or dining al fresco overlooking your vast expanse of lawn. It really is impossible to overstate how impressive your outside space is, by London standards or anywhere else.

Back inside and the ground floor's finished off by a dedicated study, indispensable utility room and spare WC, a life saver on busy mornings. Upstairs and you have a wonderful array of bedrooms and bathrooms. The master to the front is a superb example, vaulted ceilings, a Dormer window and a feast of floor to ceiling fitted storage. It all comes in at over 250 square feet, including the boutique en suite, with walk-in rainfall shower and, as in all your bathrooms, fully tiled in floor to ceiling porcelain.

There's a second substantial double bedroom to the rear, cosily carpeted with a striking statement wall and totalling more than 250 square feet with its own delectable en suite; this is a rare property with two masters. Your remaining bedrooms are all solid doubles, finished in a variety of polished, characterful styles while finally your family bathroom is handsomely equipped with an embedded rainfall shower over the tub.

WHAT ELSE?

- Local schools are plentiful and excellent. In a one mile radius alone you have fifteen primary/secondaries rated 'Good' or 'Outstanding' by Ofsted.
- As noted, with both a double garage and extensive driveway you have plentiful private parking. Drivers can be on the North Circular in less than ten minutes.
- You'll never want for open green spaces with both Epping Forest and The Highams Park close at hand. The latter is home to the Highams Park lake, created at the turn of the century by legendary landscape gardener Humphry Repton, and more recently made famous by Blue Peter.

a word from the owner.....

"Having lived here since the house was built its safe to say we have thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The area has everything you could want from shopping facilities, train links into the city to walks in the forest. The house offers the best of both worlds being so centrally located but at the same time offering a peaceful retreat being located in a quite cul d sac with an unoverlooked rear garden together with the added benifit of ample parking from the two driveways. It really has been a wonderful family home and we are sure the next owners will enjoy the house as much as we have."

Our Local Guide:
Highams Park

Crofton Grove, Highams Park — Stow Brothers

Not everyone in the capital has heard of Highams Park, and that’s only a good thing. Although it’s well connected to Central London on the Overground to Liverpool Street, it’s tucked out of sight enough to ensure that the picturesque woodland and coffee shops have a slightly exclusive feel. That’s not to say that the locals are a cliquey bunch though – far from it, they’ve been welcoming savvy families and individuals after a little more bang for their buck for years. 

All the extra space offered up from Epping Forest and Highams Park itself might be the main draw, but newcomers stay for the perks; the silver-lining of the secret slowly getting out is a vibrant and buzzing community which has created a lively food and drink scene.
