6 Bedroom

2 Bath

This generously proportioned and beautifully restored six-bedroom, two bathroom semi-detached home is packed with stunning period features, as well as stylish updates which celebrate its glorious original design.

Highlights include the kitchen/diner with underfloor heating, the two reception rooms, the striking conservatory, the large loft conversion, the cellar space, and the spacious rear garden with a workshop which is connected to the electrics.

As for the location, it’s nestled nicely between Wanstead Flats and Wanstead Park, with Aldersbrook’s perks strolling distance away.


Almost entirely encircled by greenery thanks to its enviable position in Aldersbrook, you’ll instantly notice the peaceful ambiance of your tree-lined street.
Behind the handsome facade, the sizeable hallway offers a taste of things to come, with its ornate plastered mouldings and solid hardwood flooring.

To the left you will find the spacious lounge, with a beautiful bay window and original working fireplace.
Head through to the rear, beyond the cellar access and the stylish ground floor bathroom, and you’ll reach the kitchen/breakfast room. This area is bright and spacious but still feels warm and cosy thanks to the underfloor heating and gorgeous hand painted cabinets and quartz worktops. While this will be the heart of your home, you’ll love using the dining room next door which together with the conservatory will be a real show stopper when you have guests, especially with view of the beautifully landscaped rear garden.
The garden is full of lush greenery with a stunning Japanese-style feature to the rear, which has been a labour of love for the current owners. You will also find a purpose-built workshop, which is connected to the mains and could be used in countless ways.
Back inside, you head upstairs and you’ll find a family-sized bathroom with lovely vintage-style features and cleverly concealed under bath storage.
The four bedrooms on this floor are just as immaculate, all having built in wardrobes, and designer wallpaper that brings a sense of fun to the grand feeling of luxe. In the loft you will find two further double bedrooms with ample storage through the hand built bespoke cupboards making full use of the eves.

As for beyond, the Aldersbrook neighbourhood is highly sought after thanks to its balance of rural charm and proximity to the cosmopolitan capital. Aldersbrook Riding School is a few minutes away on foot, while Aldersbrook Bowls Club is just round the corner, so you have plenty of opportunity for unique hobbies.
To the north, you will find Wanstead Park, a much loved community space and landmark of historical importance, which hosts regular activities. Look out for the 250-year old Grotto, which is undergoing restoration to bring it back to its former glory. Meanwhile to the south, there is Wanstead Flats, the southernmost tip of Epping Forest, which was cleared of trees centuries ago and now acts as a great spot for picnics, sport and exploring nature.

- Wanstead Underground Station is easily reached by bus - or if you prefer a 17 minute walk or a shorter cycle through the park.
- Manor Park station, where you can travel directly to Liverpool Street in 16 minutes via Crossrails Elizabeth line, is just a 7 minute walk from the house.
- Drivers benefit from being around 10 minutes from the North Circular/M11
- Parents will be pleased to know you have a choice of excellent primary/secondary schools in the area - this is one of the main reasons why the area is so popular.

It has been the most wonderful place to share with our family and friends and we take away a wealth of happy memories. Leaving this neighbourhood will be tough, there has always been someone ready to oblige with whatever we have needed. The Aldersbrook community will embrace the new owners, with the same welcome we received all those years ago. It is now time to pass Empress Avenue onto a new family who we are sure will cherish it as much as we have."
