An artfully appointed five bedroom detached Victorian townhouse, just moments from Forest Gate station and Wanstead Flats. Recently reimagined and lovingly finished to bring out the original architecture's vintage charm, this is a unique find.

Laid out over three floors you have twin receptions, a dedicated dining room, study and skylit loft space, as well as a substantial rear garden.

IF YOU LIVED HERE…

You'll be discovering new designer gems on a daily basis. The frontage is immediately impressive, set back from the road by a lush front garden, with original moulded arch over the front door and immaculate brickwork. Inside the introduction's just as striking. Your hallway's a joyous concoction of vintage timber - floorboards, fittings and staircase, plus plentiful exposed brick above the dado rail.

To the right, your chief reception totals 270 square feet, dual aspect with an original timber sash to the front and French doors to the rear. In here, as throughout, you have the high ceilings of the period. Across the hall your smaller lounge comes in at over 150 square feet, similarly styled, and your skylit kitchen and dining room run together to tremendous effect. Step out here for your rear garden; a fifty five foot length of sheltered lawn, ending in a secluded dell with raised deck and inventive pallet timber seating.

Back inside and your ground floor's completed by a handy spare WC, while your family bathroom sits upstairs, a pristine masterpiece in floor to ceiling metro tiles and ebony trim. You'll have four first floor sleepers, three being sizeable doubles all, ranging from 120 to 180 square feet with vintage timber floorboards and pleasant pastel paintjobs. Finally, your artfully arranged loft conversion features a fifth sleeping area and segmented lounge, all basking under a trio of skylights.

Outside and Wanstead Flats, once the favoured playground of Tudor kings and queens and still a great spot for a relaxing stroll or morning jog, is just a half mile away on foot. Endlessly explorable and home to the tranquil blue waters of Jubilee Pond, it's a tremendous space to have on your doorstep. Closer to home still, the main local thoroughfare of Woodgrange Road sits just three minutes way, for all your day to day amenities, from bars to cafes to supermarkets.

WHAT ELSE?

- Forest Gate station is less than five minutes away on foot for direct thirteen minute runs to Liverpool Street and a wide range of brand new destinations via the new Elizabeth line.
- Don't forget your dedicated study, completing the first floor at eighty square feet it's as beautifully appointed as the rest of your striking new home, and a genuine godsend for home workers.
- Current or prospective parents will be pleased to discover twenty six primary/secondary schools less than a mile away on foot, all rated 'Outstanding' or 'Good' by Ofsted.

a word from the owner...

"Living in a Victorian home gave us a real appreciation of architecture. We loved the original woodwork so much we had all the paint stripped from the doors, door frames and wherever else possible so it could be properly appreciated. The house has been interior designed to celebrate the original features and materials used when it was first built. Our family are very proud to have lived in this area all our lives. Forest Gate has a very healthy mix of people from all backgrounds and growing up here made us and all our friends very open minded and culturally informed individuals. Having acres of open green space close by like Wanstead Flats where we was able to learn sports, do other recreational activities (bike riding, feeding the ducks) and appreciate nature even though we lived in the city was great when we were kids and is still great now that we’re adults… Especially for jogging and keeping fit. Being only a couple stops away from Stratford and Liverpool Street, transport was always good but now that the crossrail has arrived it’s even better. Woodgrange Road (the High Street) has everything we need and now with the regeneration and new buildings going up it will have even more. It’s a very exciting time for the area."

Hampton 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 will be on the Crossrail’s Elizabeth line has definitely helped nudge people in the right direction.

Great Pubs

Wine bars, gastro pubs, microbrews, traditional boozers… With so many drinking establishments in Forest Gate, taking ‘a trip to the local’ can be a tricky decision. Burgess Hall Wines, The Cider House, The Holly Tree and Forest Gate Tavern are just a few of the places to choose between.

Plenty of period property

Forest Gate has an abundance of Victorian housing, ranging from terraces in the area dubbed ‘Forest Gate Village’ to semis and detached in the Woodgrange Estate conservation area. Whether you’re after a doer-upper or recently renovated period property, there should be something for your budget.
