A smart and bright one bedroom apartment, on the first floor of a substantial Victorian conversion in Leytonstone. You have a sizeable, skylit loft room, plus Leyton Midland Road station just a few moments around the corner.

You'll be stepping past that handsome red brick facade, and up into your hallway, with your kitchen straight ahead. Your culinary space is naturally bright, finished in white and blonde with glossy underlit cabinets, timber worktops and metro tile splashbacks. Across the hall, your bathroom's fully tiled in white from top to toe.

Your bedroom's a colourful double, with a wealth of mirrored, integrated storage. Your 170 square foot lounge is naturally bright, floored in blonde engineered hardwood and home to yet more integrated storage ñ an always welcome bonus. To the rear and, as noted, you have a vast communal garden, with plenty of space for getting to know the neighbours or just relaxing in private.

Outside and you have Leyton Midland Road station just five minutes around the corner for the Gospel Oak to Barking Riverside line. Ride two stops and five minutes for Blackhorse Road and you can hop straight on the Victoria line. Surrounding the station you have a selection of fine local establishments sure to become a treasured part of your day, from Perky Blenders coffee shop to Gravity Well Taproom and Burnt Steakhouse. All well worth a visit and all just moments away.


- As noted, Epping Forest is just a fifteen minute walk. Here's also where you'll find Hollow Ponds,. Explore the waterways in a hired row boat for a truly relaxed afternoon.
- The apartment comes with an allocated parking space, and drivers can be on the North Circular in less than ten minutes.

a word from the owner...

"Loved living here for the past 23 years. It has been an ideal location for its excellent transport links, close proximity to shops, restaurants, pubs & bars and best of all access to the open green of Hollow Ponds, the doorway to Epping Forest. It’s also a friendly neighbourhood with good vibes. The flat itself has been a wonderful home for myself but moving closer to family on the south coast. For additional information written into the lease is the option to extend into the spacious loft."

Our Local Guide:

Forest Drive West, Leytonstone — Stow Brothers

There’s more to Leytonstone than first meets the eye. Say the name to one person and they might think of the grand houses around Hollow Ponds, while say it to someone else and they’ll mention burgeoning South Leytonstone, or maybe the popular Bushwood. There are many different pockets, but they’re all united by the same inclusive community who recognise that it’s the balance of it all that makes Leytonstone so great.

The centre is arguably the high street with its eclectic shops and eateries, but you only have to venture slightly further away and you’ll come across hidden gems like bar Filly Brook on Grove Green Road, music venue Luna Lounge in Bushwood, or the The Hitchcock Hotel in Upper Leytonstone. Travel a little beyond and you’ll find further contrast with the vast green space that Hollow Ponds and the Wanstead Flats provide. Simply put, you’ll never get bored in Leytonstone.

Transport links

Just two stops from Stratford, Leytonstoners can nip to the Kent coast with surprising ease, but Central London or the City on the tube might be more useful - the former takes about 25 mins and the latter 15 mins. Easy.

Great Pubs

Too many pubs to choose from… What a problem to have. With The Red Lion, Heathcote and Star, The Hitchcock Hotel, The North Star, Leytonstone Tavern, locals are spoilt for choice. Better bring your pub crawl A-game if you visit.

Plenty of period property

Despite all the urban bustle, Leytonstone has an abundance of wide, tree-lined streets brimming Victorian and Edwardian property, ranging from the grand homes in Upper Leytonstone, a stone’s throw from Hollow Ponds, to the many terraces of South Leytonstone, and the popular community of Bushwood with its active residents’ association.
