3 Bedroom

2 Bath

This fabulous detached three bedroom 1920s house in a very desirable location close to the village centre of Highams Park and the park itself, is an absolutely delightful property with a welcoming interior and a huge 136 foot garden. It sits on a large plot so there’s also plenty of potential for extension.


You’d love coming home to this appealing property with its attractive facade set back from a tree-lined avenue behind a long front garden planted with shrubs and specimen trees. The curved bay windows at ground and first floor level continue upwards to give the impression of a turret, adding a whimsical ambience which is emphasised by the lovely leaded lights.

Everything about this property is uniquely welcoming, from its unusually placed front door (on the side of the property), to its interestingly modern floorplan (with large rooms and a small central hallway), and its huge landscaped garden (with a large raised deck).

From the moment you step inside you’re struck by the considered combination of the original and the contemporary, with vintage features such as stripped wood floors, picture rails, and built-in corner cupboards with panelled doors alongside thoroughly modern fixtures, fittings, and décor. A classic palette of white and pale neutrals creates and airy ambience and calm coherence.

The layout is ideal with two large living spaces on the ground floor, two double bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, and a further large double with an en suite on the third floor. The room sizes are generous, with identical huge front rooms on the ground and first floors (the living room and main bedroom respectively) measuring over 16ft x 14ft and flooded with natural light from sunny, southwest-facing curved bay windows.

The rear of the ground floor is home to a large kitchen/diner with full height glazed double doors that open onto the spacious deck – a simply spectacular spot to relax or entertain. This has views over the 136 foot rear garden which has a large lawn, a specimen tree, beds for flowers, fruit or veg, and still plentiful space left over for play equipment, a shed, and a garden studio.

Both first floor bedrooms are large doubles with striking windows, including on two sides of the second bedroom. The bathroom has smart monochrome décor and is fitted with a shower, washbasin console, and WC with a traditional high level cistern. The top floor comprises a large double bedroom with excellent natural light from two Velux roof lights and glazed double doors with a Juliet balcony, a hotel-style fully tiled ensuite shower room, and extensive eaves storage.

a word from the owner...

"I have lived in “Linden Lea” since 2011 and it is a very special house. It sits high up which means that there are terrific views of the Woodford Ridge right up to Buckhurst Hill. The horizon line is the forest and the sunrises are amazing. Highams Park lake is a 5 minute walk and the shops and station are close by too. The house is 100 years old this year and is a wonderful home!"

Our Local Guide:
Highams Park

Falmouth Avenue, 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.
