Located on the popular Nightingale Estate, this three bedroom end of terrace house is tastefully decorated, immaculately presented, and within easy walking distance of great shops, schools, parks, and tube stations. It has a large garden and garage, and the potential for further extension to the rear or into the loft. Overall it’s a lovely family home in an excellent location.


With almost 1,100 square feet of space over two floors, you’d have lots of space to spread out and relax. On the ground floor you’d have two large living spaces, plus a hallway with built-in storage cupboards, and on the first floor you’d have two double bedrooms, a third single bedroom, and a family bathroom. There’s also lots of space outside, with a paved front yard providing off-street parking for one car, side access to a detached garage, and a 60 foot long garden.

The largest room is the 23’ by 17’9” open plan kitchen/diner. This is a fabulous family room, with a large kitchen comprising a comprehensive range of bespoke Shaker-style wall and floor cabinets with integrated appliances, and a large central island with a sink and breakfast bar. There’s also ample space for a big dining table, and the whole room has great natural light from two roof lights and a wall of bifold doors that open onto the garden terrace, and a relaxed feel from the warm tones of an exposed brick wall and complementary sage green cabinetry.

The front living room is a quiet retreat with simple, fresh modern décor and stunning features including a built-in wood mantel and alcove shelving, and a beautiful black enamel wood burning stove. The large bay window has bespoke plantation shutters, and a school-style radiator completes the understated yet unique look of this room.

Bespoke plantation shutters are also fitted in the large bay windows in the two double bedrooms. The front bedroom also has two built-in wardrobes, whilst the second bedroom to the rear has garden views. The third single bedroom is ideal for its current use as a workspace if not needed as a bedroom. The bathroom has been thoughtfully updated, with a modern suite including a large corner shower and distinctive floor and wall tiles, with a striking monochrome colour scheme.

The sunny south-facing garden is landscaped into areas for entertaining, play, and relaxation, with an extensive paved terrace with plenty of rooms for barbecues and outdoor dining adjacent to the house, and a detached 22’8” by 9’3” brick garage with windows and a side door alongside an area of lawn. Planted beds run all along the western border. The garden has an open aspect, with views of surrounding trees and big skies.

-The local shops at charming Nightingale Green are just four minutes’ walk away, and Nightingale Primary School, rated outstanding by Ofsted, is just a five minute walk.
-The Central Line tube stations of Wanstead and Snaresbrook are both 14 minutes away on foot, with fast direct journeys to Stratford (8 minutes), the City (Liverpool Street 17 minutes), and the West End (Oxford Circus 28 minutes).
-There are lots of parks and green spaces within walking distance, from Christchurch Green in Wanstead High Street, to Leyton Flats, Wanstead Flats, and Wanstead Park.

a word from the owners...

"We have loved the kind and welcoming neighbours of Elmcroft Avenue. It has been a great place to live a balanced lifestyle. Being able to walk to pick up a decent coffee on the way to the choice of two tube stations along with some great dog walks straight from the house. During lockdown we were very grateful of all the outdoor and indoor space we had."

Our Local Guide:

Elmcroft Avenue, 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.
