A strikingly finished two bedroom first floor apartment, artfully arranged and brimming with ingenious designer touches throughout. You also have a rear garden with handy studio, and Wanstead Flats and Forest Gate station are both moments away.

Winchelsea Road, the heart of a growing social hub and a diverse collection of bars, restaurants and gastropubs, is less than five minutes on foot. You're bound to find a new favourite.

IF YOU LIVED HERE...

You'll step through your dedicated front door and climb the stairs to find your substantial reception to the front. Coming in at more then 160 square feet it's a superb spot for welcoming guests, finished in a soft powder sand palette, home to a perfectly preserved pewter hearth and awash with natural light. Next door bedroom one is a generous single, finished in arresting striped wallpaper and currently in use as home office.

Next door your principal bedroom's a sizeable double, with another vintage hearth, floor to ceiling fitted wardrobe and soft eggshell blue paintjob. There's a handy nook on the landing (yet another spot for home working) while your bathroom's finished in a mix of white, blue and smoky grey with a rainfall shower over the tub. Finally, head past the stairs down to your garden for your kitchen/diner. Here, oversized windows frame rooftops views while twin flanks of forest green cabinets, timber worktops and forest green letterbox splashbacks surround the generous dining area.

Outside and Forest Gate station is just a half mile on foot for the speedy and shiny new Elizabeth line. From here it's just thirteen minutes direct to Liverpool Street and twenty to Tottenham Court Road, putting both the City and West end just a half hour away, door to door. Also just a short stroll away, barely five minutes in fact, is Wanstead Flats, once the favoured playground of Tudor Kings and Queens and still some of the wildest wide open green space for miles around. You'll forget you're in London.

WHAT ELSE?

- Among the many dining delights on your doorstep is The Wanstead Kitchen specialising in delicious Indian cuisine and less than five minutes from your front door. Explore further for a Winchelsea Road's wide range of wining and dining establishments, all within easy reach.

a word from the owner...

"We have loved living here for the past few years and have fully renovated the space, making use of the old features and giving everything an upgrade and update. There is ample storage, with built-in and bespoke wardrobe and shelving units in the main bedroom and living room. There is also a huge loft space with potential for conversion. We have hosted friends and family around the table, and outside in the garden for BBQs. Most days we find ourselves wandering around Wanstead Flats on a walk, popping into Wild Goose Cafe for a coffee or catching up with friends in Joyau or The Holly Tree. With the garden office and 2 additional work areas, there has been plenty of space for us to navigate a hybrid working world, and on days we do go to the office, the Elizbateh Line is only a 10 minute walk away."

Our Local Guide:
Forest Gate

Field Road, 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.
