2 Bedroom s

1 Bath

Bright and full of character, this two bedroom Victorian conversion has been lovingly refurbished with the perfect balance of modern convenience and traditional charm.

Located on a peaceful tree-lined street, the home is just a few minutes from the brilliant amenities of Winchelsea Road and the historical greenery of Wanstead Flats, while Forest Gate station is half a mile away, where you can hop on the Elizabeth line and reach the city in 12 mins.


Head through your eye-pleasing olive green door and into your beautifully finished hallway, where you can admire the sisal carpet runner and striking off-black colour palette. This is just a taste of things to come; your reception room is bright and brilliant, with painted flooring and two windows to ensure optimum light. This minimalist style is the perfect blank canvas if you want to add your own touches - or just sit back and enjoy the simplicity. The kitchen is just as sleek, with smart white units and integrated appliances. Contrasting wonderfully, the bathroom has bright yellow flooring, rustic-style tiles and a stylish black framed walk-in shower. It’s a show-stopper. Either side you’ll find two smartly decorated bedrooms. Back outside, just a few metres away you’ll come across the grounds of Wanstead Flats (Henry VIII’s favoured hunting ground no less), perfect for dog-walkers, fitness fans and picnickers. For more of an urban buzz, head to Winchelsea Road, a thriving hub with some fantastic eateries located in the old railway arches. Look out for Pretty Decent Beer, The Wanstead Kitchen, Wild Goose Bakery and Arch Rivals. In the other direction, to the south of Wanstead Flats, you’ll come across the Golden Fleece, a traditional pub with a beer garden, well-stocked menu and a great selection of locally brewed ales.


- Forest Gate station is around eight minutes on foot, where you can use the Crossrail to get directly to Liverpool Street in about 12 mins or Bond St in 19 mins.
- Parents will be pleased to know you have a wide choice great primary and secondary school less than a mile away on foot.
- More pub options? You’ve got The Wanstead Tap, a bar, beer shop and performance space 16 minute’s from your home on foot, or The Holly Tree, which is slightly nearer and offers up great grub plus a miniature railway.

a word from the owner...

"The flat is airy with big windows and is bathed in light throughout the year. Godwin Road is a great location sat just off the beautiful Wanstead flats, and offers picnics in the Summer, crispy morning runs in the Autumn and beautiful strolls in the Spring. Cafes and bars under two sets of railway arches are fun ways to spend mornings and evenings and with EastBank in the Olympic Park opening over the next few months - with a new V&A Gallery, Sadler's Wells East and BBC Music studios - it's an exciting time to be in Newham."

Our Local Guide:
Forest Gate

Godwin 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.
