a word from the owner...

"When we made the decision to move to Forest Gate 8 years ago it was a very different place to what it is now, but we knew it had the potential to grow into the community we were searching for and it did just that and more. Yes it has cool little cafes, bakeries, restaurants and pubs and it’s just 15 minutes into central London but what makes Forest Gate so special is the community it holds. The best part? We haven’t yet seen it all, this place’s charm still has room for more growth. This particular house has been a sanctuary for us as a family, with the births of both our children having made this place a home that holds so many special memories for us and we hope that it will for you too. Our neighbours are some of the friendliest, kindest people we know and if we weren’t leaving to make new memories in a whole other country, we’d be investing in converting the loft and expanding into this home and staying here long term. We hope you can feel the warmth this home holds for you and we’re excited for what it’s next adventure holds."

Our Local Guide:
Forest Gate

Essex Street, Forest Gate — Stow Brothers

If you’ve already heard Chiwetel Ejiofor or Idris Elba proudly discussing their hometown, you probably don’t need us to convince you of Forest Gate’s merits, but for those who haven’t, let us catch you up…

With a heritage rooted in culture, it’s not surprising that Forest Gate has a strong creative community today. During just one week in the 60s, the Upper Cut Club music venue there hosted – deep breath – The Who, the Animals, the Spencer Davis Group, Geno Washington and Jimi Hendrix. These days you’re more likely to find the area’s artistic-types supping drinks in the cool cafes and bars. Along with the period property and proximity to green space, this independent scene has been the main draw for new arrivals to the area, although the fact that Forest Gate is now on the Crossrail’s Elizabeth line has definitely helped nudge people in the right direction.
