2 Bedrooms

A bright and spacious two bedroom apartment on the top floor of a modest, low rise development nestled in the lovely leafy environs of our sought-after Aldersbrook estate. This is a property positively brimming with potential, plus you're within easy reach of the enviable transport connections of Forest Gate.

Wanstead Flats, once the favoured hunting grounds of Tudor kings and some of the widest wide open green space for miles around, is just around the corner. Perfect for hitting your Fitbit goals or simply losing yourself in nature, as you wish.


You'll be enjoying making on your mark on a property ripe for development while realising your interior design dreams in our exceptional Aldersbrook Estate neighbourhood (named after the Alders Brook, a small tributary of the River Roding). Clean, fresh air is in abundance here - you're surrounded on all sides by open space or parkland. Quite remarkable for our metropolis.

Inside and your 170 square foot lounge is a gloriously generous space with plenty of space for dining, all awaiting the designer flourishes that will turn it into a splendid space for relaxing and entertaining. Bedroom one's a ninety square foot double enjoying engineered blonde timber effect flooring underfoot, while your second bedroom's similarly styled and slightly larger (both come with a wealth of fitted storage). Your kitchen may be in need of modernisation but the foundations here are strong. Lastly, the bathroom comes dressed in a traditional white suite with a heated towel rail making cold winter days cosy.

Outside, you have fantastic access to the City - Manor Park station is a seventeen minute walk (or five minute cycle) and will get you directly to Liverpool Street just as quickly. The station will also be benefiting from the arrival of Crossrail, putting Bond Street and the West End within easy reach. Woodgrange Park overground station is a stretch further for the Gospel Oak to Barking line to speed you across North London. Drivers, meanwhile, have off road parking and can be on the North Circular in eleven minutes.


- The tranquil blue waters of Alexandra Lake, known locally as Sandhills Pond due to the sandy nature of its banks, are a mere seven minute walk from your front door.
- The property comes chain free which means we can get you in with the minimum of hassle. A long lease means you'll have no renewal worries either.
- For your new local we have to recommend The Golden Fleece just a seventeen minute stroll away. It's perfectly placed on the border of Wanstead Flats, recently refurbished and serving up cask ales and mouth-watering Sunday roasts.

a word from the owner....

"This flat was perfect for me as a first time buyer! It was surprisingly spacious, especially when making full use of the additional storage space on the ground floor. I loved to take full advantage of the local green spaces of Wanstead Flats, City of London Cemetery and Wanstead Park for summer picnics, weekend walks and leisurely bike rides. We even took on an allotment plot to grow our own fruit and veg throughout the year which was incredibly rewarding. Local transport links made getting into Stratford or Central London for a night out really easy whilst Wanstead and Leytonstone are only a short distance away for local eateries and shops. I had great access to the North Circular Which made driving to work a real breeze. There is a real community feel in this block and the neighbours really look out for each other. As it is on the top floor it gets great views and being an end of row unit means it is really quiet with very little foot traffic going past."
