5 Bedroom

2 Bath

Recently refurbished from top to bottom, this five bedroom, three storey Victorian terrace is a real find. Naturally bright and characterfully appointed throughout, you're less than ten minutes walk from the Elizabeth line at Forest Gate.

The property was extended in 2017, and then completely refurbished in 2020 by the current owners. The refurbishment included a brand new Worcester Bosch boiler, wood floors throughout living area and staircase, additional eaves storage, new kitchen and redesigned ground floor bathroom.

IF YOU LIVED HERE…

You'll be happily welcoming friends and family into your vast, fully open plan ground floor. Twenty five feet in length, with clear sightlines from the box bay window at the front to the patio doors at the back, this is an amazing space. Beautiful brushed chevron flooring flows seamlessly underfoot throughout, while overhead you have an array of recessed spotlights, twin skylights and designer pendulum lighting.

A striking statement wall runs down one flank, while your kitchen's smartly decked out in cream and grey cabinets with brass fittings. Splashbacks are eye catching hexagons, you have chunky marbled countertops and there's a Dublin sink set into the generous central chef's island. There's even an integrated wine fridge. Those large skylights together with the bi folding patio doors, naturally illuminate everything.

Bring the outside in and open everything up to the garden, where a deck gives way to a length of lush lawn surrounded by a scattering of pots. A chic, boutique spare WC completes the ground floor, while upstairs your principal bedroom to the front is a suitably striking affair, finished in designer wallpaper and a tranquil peach paintjob. Next door you have a generous single sleeper, currently in use as a luxurious walk in wardrobe.

A second bright and pleasant double bedroom sits to the rear, along with your family bathroom; pristine and gleaming, tiled from floor to ceiling and with a designer rainfall shower over the L-shaped tub. Into your expertly realised loft conversion now, for another substantial principal sleeper, sitting below twin skylights and currently in use as a superb study. Bedroom four sits to the rear, while your second bathroom completes things in more of that sleek, glossy style.

a word from the expert...

"When I decided to move to Forest Gate a few years ago, I was drawn by the great housing stock, the green spaces of Wanstead Flats and the friendly, up-and-coming vibe of independent boutiques, eateries, and bars. I’ve spent many a happy weekend walking on the flats and in Wanstead Park. Often, I’ll finish up with an all-trimmings roast at The Holly Tree or perhaps a fantastic curry from The Wanstead Kitchen. After living here for a while, you really start to feel happy and settled. I love the arty, independent feel of Forest Gate, and I get the impression I’m not the only one — it’s something all the locals nurture and support." JOSEPH EARNSHAW E7 BRANCH MANAGER

Our Local Guide:
Forest Gate

Glenparke Road, Forest Gate — Stow Brothers

If you’ve already heard Chiwetel Ejiofor or Idris Elba proudly discussing their hometown, you probably don’t need us to convince you of Forest Gate’s merits, but for those who haven’t, let us catch you up…

With a heritage rooted in culture, it’s not surprising that Forest Gate has a strong creative community today. During just one week in the 60s, the Upper Cut Club music venue there hosted – deep breath – The Who, the Animals, the Spencer Davis Group, Geno Washington and Jimi Hendrix. These days you’re more likely to find the area’s artistic-types supping drinks in the cool cafes and bars. Along with the period property and proximity to green space, this independent scene has been the main draw for new arrivals to the area, although the fact that Forest Gate is now on the Crossrail’s Elizabeth line has definitely helped nudge people in the right direction.
