3 Bedrooms

An immaculately styled three bedroom 1930s semi-detached, with the palatial proportions of the period and a wealth of sleek, sparkling Design & Decor throughout. Outside, you have the vast epic greenery of Epping Forest just across the road.

As striking as your property already is, there's scope to extend the original architecture, as some of your neighbours have done, making this a home that will serve the needs of you and yours for years to come (subject to the usual permissions).

IF YOU LIVED HERE...

You'll be welcoming friends and family into your gorgeous twin receptions. To the front, you have a covetable 180 square foot lounge, basking in natural light from that beautiful bow window, and finished in classic white with pale hardwood floors underfoot. To the rear you've a second, similarly sized space, also naturally bright thanks to a bank of bi folding patio doors.

Step out here and you have a strikingly lengthy rear garden. A raised, split level patio descends to a lush lawn of over sixty feet. Packed with thriving greenery and foliage it's a wonderfully wild outdoor space. Back inside, and the ground floor's completed by your kitchen, a smart, contemporary affair with a seamless suite of smoky grey cabinets, metro tile splash-backs and timber worktops.

Upstairs and your primary sleeper sits to the front, with another vast bow window letting light flood in and framing leafy views. There's more light pale engineered hardwood underfoot, adding to the sense of light. Bedroom two's another bright, characterful double, with green garden views, while your third sleeper is a sizeable single ideal for a child or home office. Finally your bathroom is sleek and gleaming in smoky grey, with tub and walk in rainfall shower cubicle.

Outside and, as noted, you have the endlessly explorable Epping Forest on your doorstep. Literally just a minute over the road and perfect for morning jogs, evening strolls or exercising furry friends. Take a leafy half mile stroll to arrive at Highams Park for gorgeous views over London and the beautiful Highams Park lake, created at the turn of the century by renowned landscape gardener Humphry Repton, now immortalised at Humphry's Cafe.

WHAT ELSE?

- Highams Park overground station is barely ten minutes walk and will get you directly to Liverpool Street in twenty three, putting the City around a half hour away door to door. Alternatively, ride two stops and switch at Walthamstow Central for the Victoria line.
- For your new local check out the impressive Royal Oak Gastropub and Guesthouse. Just five minutes away on foot with delicious food, a great range of real ales and fine wines.

a word from the owner.....

"Woodford Green, as its name suggests, has ample open spaces, including village greens, parks and forest land. The area has a number of popular pubs and eateries. For Italian, the superb Bel Sit is known for its authentic family feel and collection of football shirts. Rosso on the Broadway and Mezze on the Green are also really popular. Along the High Road are a number of historic ‘watering holes’ including the Cricketers, Travellers Friend, Rose & Crown and Horse & Well. For local shopping, Woodford Broadway is a good choice, including a lovely new fishmonger called Fatfish. BEN CHARLETON E18 SENIOR ADVISOR

Our Local Guide:
Woodford Green

Forest Drive, Woodford Green — Stow Brothers

In case you hadn’t already picked up on the clues in the name, Woodford Green is a charming sanctuary of leafy loveliness within a short hop of Central London. Yes, you read that right – duck ponds, cricket greens and quaint pubs… all just 30-ish minutes from Oxford Circus. No wonder savvy families have been making the area home for a while now – the area’s excellent schools are just the icing on the cake.

Thanks to its close proximity to Epping Forest, visitors head to Woodford Green for scenic walks, and then refuel at one of the area’s cosy traditional pubs such as the Travellers Friend or The Cricketers. There’s also a lively food scene, but just low key enough to ensure the neighbourhood has a close-knit, villagey vibe.
