5 Bedroom

2 Bath

A wonderful, five bedroom, 1930s end terrace, with a private driveway, garage and large South West facing garden. This is the perfect home for a growing family, with great schools and the endlessly explorable Epping Forest on your doorstep.

You'll be through to London Liverpool Street in around half an hour door to door, with Highams Park station just half a mile on foot for direct twenty three minute runs to the City. You can also ride just two stops to Walthamstow Central and five stops to Hackney Downs.


Plush smoky carpet flows from the entrance hall into your first, 160 square foot, reception room. A leaded bow window casts light across the room and an immaculate vintage fireplace takes centre stage. Next door, you'll find an attractive dining room with equally spacious dimensions, lovingly restored timber flooring and bright patio doors opening out to your South West facing garden. In your kitchen, there's canary yellow paintwork, charcoal countertops and flooring, classic white cabinets and a large integrated chef's oven, as well as another route to your outside space.

Out here, you'll find an ideal mix of paved patio and lush green lawn. You can also get into your garage, for secure sheltered off-street parking, and continue through to the paved driveway at the front of your home for more additional options for drivers. Back inside, and upstairs you'll find another gorgeous bow window and an elegant mantelpiece in your 150 square foot, principal bedroom. A second generous sleeper sits next door, with a vintage pewter hearth and garden views and your third bedroom has another beautiful latticed bay window.

Elsewhere, in your large, stylish family bathroom, floor to ceiling, misty tilework is illuminated by a pair of bright windows and a rainfall shower sits over the L-shaped tub. Heading upstairs again, you'll find your fourth sizeable double, with two sunny skylights and accent lighting. Your fifth and final bedroom sits next door, with more accent lighting and a Juliet balcony overlooking the garden. Here you also have a lovely en suite shower room, with a contemporary white suite, more of those misty tiles and a chrome heated towel rail.

Your new local will be the family friendly Royal Oak Pub and Guesthouse, only a few minutes' walk from your front door. With quiz nights, live music events and outdoor concerts in the beer garden in the summer, this is a great place to meet up with friends and neighbours. Also practically on your doorstep is the Forest Drive entrance to the vast woodlands of Epping Forest. Walk, cycle or run your way through the forest up to Highams Park Lake or down to Hollow Ponds, where you can hire a row boat and take in the beautiful scenery from a different angle.

a word from the owner...

"The house is in a quiet street with a fabulous view onto the Oak Hill Crescent Green. It's a short hop, skip from the front door to Epping Forest with fantastic walks for family and dogs! You can walk from here through the forest to the Highams Park in around 15-20 minutes which is great in summer when the shade from the trees is much nicer than walking via the roads. It's a very friendly street and neighbouring street, and less than 10 minutes walk to Highams Park station and the community shops. Walking to South Woodford Odeon takes about 20-25 minutes in the opposite direction. Children attended Selwyn Primary but other neighbours attend Oakhill Primary and Handsworth. They then went on to attend Highams Park Secondary and the Sixth Form there and have developed a strong community of friends in the area."

Our Local Guide:
Woodford Green

Galeborough Avenue, 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.
