1 Bedroom

An immaculately presented, impeccably styled, modern one bedroom ground floor apartment. Featuring underfloor heating, contemporary open plan living arrangements, a private courtyard and communal gardens with convenient cycle hanger.

For thirty five minute door to door connections to Liverpool Street, catch the speedy Central line from Leytonstone station. Just as close is Leyton Midland Road overground station, for Overground services between Gospel Oak and Barking Riverside.


Entering through your communal garden, you'll be able to lock up your bicycle in the useful storage hanger before opening the gate to your own, 180 square foot, patio garden. Take a few minutes to enjoy the tranquillity and privacy this space has to offer before heading straight in to your huge open plan lounge, kitchen and diner. Large twin windows overlook your garden and bathe the blonde herringbone flooring in natural light.

In your kitchen smooth white cabinetry blends seamlessly into the streamlined chrome appliances and glossy white splashbacks. Moving through to your bedroom you'll find built in storage, velvety carpet underfoot and two bright floor to ceiling windows. Next door and your bathroom is a sleek elegant affair, with floor to ceiling smoky grey tilework, chrome fixtures and fittings, a freestanding sink with vanity unit and a rainfall shower over the tub. Finally, back in the hallway, you have another useful built in storage area.

Epping Forest is only ten minutes' walk from your door. Enter via the Whipps Cross Road entrance and start your woodland adventure at Leyton Flats. Head North to Hollow Ponds where you can rent row boats for a different, duck's perspective on the lovely views. Abbots Park is also nearby, where you can workout in the fresh air of the open gym or play tennis on one of the public courts. If you prefer to swim head over to Leyton Leisure Centre, just a half mile from your door and equipped with a full-size swimming pool, 102 station gym and a relaxing sauna and steam room.


- Your new local is the much loved Heathcote & Star gastropub, for fine wines, real ales, a delicious menu and regular live events including stand up comedy.
- E10's destination street of Francis Road is well worth the twenty minute stroll, for a selection of high end independent cafes and coffee shops.
- Meat lovers should be sure to check out the critically acclaimed ribs at Burnt Smokehouse, under the railway arches at Leyton Midland Road and just ten minutes on foot.

a word from the owner...

As a local I was drawn to the boutique development due to the aesthetics and quality of the finishes, as well as the privacy of the quiet one way street being hard to find elsewhere in the area. This turned out to be a great decision for us as the flat comes with generous proportions and lots of storage space which has given us the ability to grow within the flat. The private ground floor entrance and terrace has been a perfect fit for our dog and with Hollow Ponds being just a 5 minute walk away this has been an amazing place for our long dog walks where we have made many new friends on the way. Our neighbours in the rest of the flats are also a great group of people, both friendly and helpful. We have really enjoyed the location of the property which is a 10 minute walk to both Leytonstone Underground and Leyton Midland stations and with buses at the top of our road taking you to either Walthamstow or Hackney in just 20 minutes. Leytonstone is a vibrant and community led area with lots to offer, including a number of bustling pubs and great restaurants, with The North Star and Homies on Donkies being just two of our many favourites.

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.
