a word from the owner...

"I was drawn to the property because it is situated in a quiet street with a peaceful vibe. I found the property deceptively spacious, and well appointed, and I have enjoyed the calming views from the secluded balcony when having my morning coffee. The flat is part of a very small development of only eight flats – and my neighbours are a great bunch of people! What I have enjoyed most about living in Leytonstone, is the convenient location and excellent transport links. Leytonstone station is only an 8 minute walk and Leyton Midland station is a 10 minute walk, with both getting me into the City in 20 mins. I have found it to be a vibrant and diverse neighbourhood, surrounded by Epping Forest, popular with young professionals like me, and the pubs, cafes and restaurants are great!"

Our Local Guide:

Forest Road, 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.
