1 Bedroom

A bright, sleek and stylish one bedroom apartment on the first floor of a statuesque Victorian terrace. Leyton Midland Road is just a third of a mile on foot, while the open nature of Epping Forest and Hollow Ponds are both within easy reach.

There's more greenery even closer, with the open spaces, playgrounds and tennis courts of Abbots Park just around the corner.


Step inside and your substantial reception room is straight ahead, 140 square feet with twin double glazed windows framing street views. Designer tower radiators complement the smoky grey walls, soft matching carpet runs underfoot and you have the original ceiling rose overhead. Across the hallway your bedroom's a 120 square foot double, with another tower radiator and leafy green views.

Elsewhere, your kitchen is laid handily open to the lounge, with striking geometric tilework underfoot. Glossy, smooth and seamless cabinets sit above and below solid white countertops, featuring an integrated stainless steel oven with matching extractor and splashback. Finally your bathroom's just as impressive, with floor to ceiling metro tiles and oversized chrome heated towel rail

Outside and, as noted, Leyton Midland Road station is barely five minutes on foot. Serving the Gospel Oak to Barking Riverside line, you can get directly from here to the banks of the River Thames in around sixteen minutes. Alternatively, Blackhorse Road is just five minutes and two stops away for a quick swap to the Victoria line and fifteen minute runs to King's Cross.


- Be sure to explore the arches along Leyton Midland Road for Gravity Well Taproom and their glorious range of craft beers.
- Epping Forest and Hollow Ponds are well worth the fifteen minute walk, perfect for picnics, jogs and strolls, you can even hire row boats and explore the waterways in the company of friendly ducks.
- You have off street parking, and drivers can be on the arterial North Circular in less then ten minutes.

a word from the owner...

"I was very happy living here, as was my tenant for the last three years. Perky Blenders is just down the road on one side, and you have Hollow Ponds in easy walking distance on the other. Particularly with the new windows, the light in the property is just great!"

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.
