We are pleased to offer this well appointed four bedroom family home. With over 1200 square feet of living space, not to mention the beautiful Westerly facing garden, this is a wonderfully spacious property. Located on a quiet residential turn in the leafy Woodford Green, with the added benefit of off street parking, you are less than half a mile from Highams Park Station here. With easy access to Epping Forest and Highams Park Lake you have a glorious mixture of rural scenery whilst being plugged into the thriving metropolis.


Unfolding over three floors, you have some glorious features in your new home. You are sure to appreciate that there are two bathrooms, with the family bathroom sitting on the first floor. This room is particularly lovely with a large walk in shower and sparkling suite. On the ground floor, your kitchen sits at the front of the property and is well appointed, with metro wall tiles perfectly complimenting the white cabinets and polished grey flooring. The reception room adjoins the conservatory, to create a wonderfully flowing and light space, the multi aspect windows of the conservatory ensuring that sun fills the space from sunrise until sunset. From here you access the garden, which you are sure to love - you have high bamboo fencing ensuring privacy, patio area for al fresco dining and mature shrubs in the beds that circle the lawn.

Your loft has been thoughtfully converted, with a dormer overlooking the rear aspect. This creates a large bedroom with fully fitted en suite. On the ‘middle’ floor, you have three versatile bedrooms; the largest of these spans the full width of the property and is an excellent size. The further two bedrooms could be easily repurposed as a home office or play room for younger children.

Out and about, and your new neighbourhood Highams Park is known as somewhat of a hidden gem. The park itself is a glorious pocket of greenery; the famous Highams Park Lake, designed at the turn of the century by Sir Humphry Repton, is surrounded by wild flower meadows - climb to the top of the hill to enjoy the breathtaking views over London before heading back down to Humphry's Cafe for tea and cake. The whole area is gaining a reputation as a real foodie hangout thanks to the multitude of restaurants and cafes in this buzzing pocket of north east London. Head to Yaz for delicious Mediterranean / Middle Eastern fusion dishes in super cool surroundings.


-Your new local, the grand ‘Royal Oak’ is sure to become a firm favourite, offering delicious Sunday Roasts and a warm welcome whatever the weather. We also recommend trying out the Stag and Lantern Micropub up on the Broadway.
-Lea Valley and Epping Forest offer acres of cycle paths for cyclists of all abilities to enjoy, opening up miles of countryside for you to enjoy exploring.
-Parents will be delighted by the lovely family friendly vibe in the area, with many Ofsted rated ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ schools nearby.

Our Local Guide:
Woodford Green

Forster Close, 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.
