2 Bedroom

1 Bath

This masterfully-restored two-bedroom apartment is an excellent find thanks to its stunning features, private garden, sole-use front door and impressive location.

Situated on Francis Road, one of the most sought-after parts of E10, you’ll be surrounded by top quality bars, eateries and stores, but still tucked in a residential nook of it. What’s more, Leyton tube is around 15 minutes away on foot, so you can easily nip into Central London.

IF YOU LIVED HERE…

Behind your vintage-style, sole-use front door, you’ll find 658 square foot of immaculate space. The decor is spotless, and you’ll love how the contemporary updates sit alongside the original features.

The stylishly designed lounge/ kitchen has space for dining, so entertaining is a dream, especially when it’s warm enough to spill out into the rear garden, where there are options of seating areas and leafy foliage for seclusion.

Back inside, in the front bedroom, the fireplace alcove and original timber flooring adds a sense of warmth, while the custom shutters are not only aesthetically pleasing but convenient too. The rear bedroom has the same lovely features - and either room could double up as a living space if preferred. As for the bathroom, it’s been thoughtfully planned with sleek tiling and smart fittings, such as the over-tub shower.

Just beyond your charming front garden, you’ll find the part-pedestrianised Francis Road, which is now recognised across the capital as a hub thanks to its eclectic mix of eateries and stores. Not sure where to start? Just ask one of the friendly locals, who’ll most likely point you in the direction of something like wine bar Yardarm, Korean eatery Zaxx or independent book store Phlox. In the other direction, around the Leyton Midland Road arches, you’ve got some brilliant new choices, including the much lauded smokehouse Burnt (‘dreamy’ according to the Guardian), as well as Gravity Well Taproom.

Just a little bit further away, the Grove Green Road area has been buzzing with activity for a few years and is now a hangout in its own right. The Filly Brook, Heathcote & Star and the Northcote there and sure to become faves.

Hop on a bus for a few stops and you’ll in find yourself in the iconic Olympic Park, and just beyond that, Westfield Stratford, which won’t need an introduction. Nearby there’s also East Bank, a unique collaboration between world-leading universities, arts and culture institutions. Sadler’s Wells, BBC and V&A are all moving into the area there, so you’re in good company.

WHAT ELSE?

- You won’t ever be stuck for essential items thanks to the great selection of convenience stores on Leyton High Road. Tesco Superstore is a short walk away.
- Leyton tube station is around 15 minutes on foot to get you into central London via the Central Line. Or hop on to the Overground at Leyton Midland Road for the Gospel Oak to Barking line, a short six minute walk away.
- The lease is over 150 years, which should give you plenty of peace of mind.

a word from the owner...

"This home has been my haven over the past few years. I fell in love with its character and surroundings from the moment I saw it; from its high ceilings and original Victorian features to all its outdoor space, which I have transformed into an area I enjoy all year round. The walk home through the leafy fairy-lit streets is special and there is so much to enjoy right on the doorstep on Francis Road - the delicious coffee and pastry treats, craft beers and eclectic music purchases."

Our Local Guide:
Leyton

Francis Road, Leyton — Stow Brothers

Assured locals barely bat an eyelid when the national press dub Leyton one of ‘best places to live’ in London – it’s been a regular feature since the 2012 London Olympics regeneration, but the area’s constant evolution means even frequent visitors can get taken aback by just how much it has going on. 

With the lively cafes on Francis Road, the bustling High Road, the family-friendly footie action and easy access to the Olympic Park, Leyton can often feel like a city within a city. What’s more, these various layers work together to create a balanced community that comes free of any pretension, so even newbies can find themselves having a natter with the locals while they explore Leyton’s latest delights. It’s an easy reach too, with the Central line connecting Leyton with the city to the west, and leafy Essex to the east.

Transport links

There’s no ‘late’ in Leyton thanks to the excellent transport links. Leyton tube is on the Central line with direct trains into the City and Central London, while Leyton Midland Road is handily placed on the Overground line, as is the new-ish Lea Bridge station.

Great Pubs

Whether you want a quiet pint in the sunshine or a night of banging tunes, Leyton has you covered for pubs. With The Leyton Star, The Coach & Horses, William the Fourth, locals and visitors are spoilt for choice.

Plenty of period property

Leyton’s amenities might be largely new additions, but a lot of the property is gloriously old. Victorian and Edwardian houses are plentiful - including budget-friendly ‘doer-uppers’, and the wide tree-lined streets add further appeal.
