This beautifully presented one-bedroom apartment is situated within the bustling hub of leafy Highams Park with exceptional transport links to the city. An incredible location, with cafes, restaurants, boutiques, and gift shops right on your doorstep. All of this is within a short walk of green spaces and woodland, including the picturesque Highams Park lake. The combination of sophistication, community, and woodland allows for an exclusive feel within a warm community infrastructure. Highams Park is a free parking zone, so there is no need to worry about expensive meter payments or costly parking permits.


The Stow Brothers proudly presents this beautiful, spacious apartment, with over 570 square feet of open living space and gorgeous designer flourishes. Securely located on the third floor of a modern, well-maintained development, this space comes with lift access and a generous balcony to enjoy ample outdoor space. With less than a five-minute walk to Highams Park station and a short twenty-five-minute direct journey into the city. This is a prime location for any professional wanting the perfect combination of a community that is self-contained, yet well connected.

Upon entry, you will be welcomed by a bright, open-plan lounge with plenty of space for relaxing, dining, and entertaining guests. This south-facing apartment enjoys floods of light from morning to evening, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. The lounge opens out to a generous balcony with premium pet-friendly artificial grass, perfect for entertaining. This apartment is newly fitted with Barnes Trail Oak flooring adding another touch of sophisticated style and brightness to the space.

The kitchen comes with more on-trend touches, in the form of white gloss units, with a continuous white gloss plinth, soft close handless doors, and a Black Brazil worktop. Let’s not forget the stainless-steel Zanussi electric oven with frameless black glass, touch control ceramic hob, and integrated Smeg cooker hood. The kitchen also enjoys a fully integrated fridge freezer and bright, yet durable Chelsea floor tiles. It also boasts brushed aluminum ceiling down-lights and under-counter LED lighting, alongside satin chrome appliance switches and sockets.

The one word to describe the bedroom is simply, huge! It is truly rare to find a bedroom with such ample space in a city location but this room will not leave you disappointed. This space facilitates a king-size bed with ample space for a work desk, wardrobe, drawers, and two bedside lockers. Two floor-to-ceiling windows flood the room with light from morning to evening. The south-facing window looks out onto the lush greenery of Jacks Farm Way, providing a pleasing bedroom vista.

The contemporary feel of this apartment continues with the addition of a sleek white bathroom suite, complimented by on-trend, New England bath paneling. The space feels clean and light, complemented by bright and durable Chelsea wall and floor tiles. The addition of a chrome heated towel rail and chrome ceiling down-lights add a beautiful touch of sophistication to this space.

There’s no need for concern when it comes to storage, as you will have ample space for your belongings. This beautiful apartment boasts a walk-in storage cupboard and utility room, currently used to house a free-standing washing machine. Additional storage can be added to the utility room by adding extra shelving.

Highams Park is locally known as a safe neighborhood and you will have additional peace of mind, thanks to a double door fob entry to the apartment block and a video entry phone system. You also won’t need to worry about your expensive bike being stolen, as there is a locked bike room in the block, located within a securely gated carpark. The development enjoys full-fiber broadband, ideal for digital entertainment and those all-important working from home days. If after a long day you need to relax, just pop down to the beautiful communal garden and chill amongst the leafy flora.


High Owner Occupancy: Over 95% of properties in this block are owner-occupied. Why is this important? It's important because it means that the residents in your block are likely to be just as invested as you are in maintaining your living space and in harnessing a sense of community. As a resident, you’ll have the opportunity to join a friendly social media group with other residents and close neighbors. This group not only helps to harness a close sense of community within the development but also acts as a helpful resource for residents who have questions or need advice and support. It's also a great place for free cycling!

Management board: In this unique development, residents comprise 70% of the management company, tasked with maintaining and taking care of this apartment block. Why is this important? It is not uncommon in apartment developments for a management board to exist without any input from residents. This means that residents are not involved in important decisions regarding the maintenance, upkeep, and proper use of the budget. This can lead to homeowners becoming vulnerable to exploitation by management agents and inflated property management fees. You do not need to worry about this being a problem with your new home, as residents on the management board work hard to keep budgets low and safeguard the interests of your property. You could even become a director and help shape your community!

EWS1 Certificate: EWS stands for ‘External Wall Survey’. An EWS1 certificate is an External Wall System Fire Review certificate examining the fire safety of cladding on leaseholder multi-story, multi-occupied residential buildings. This requirement was introduced in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy and has become an important requirement for mortgage providers when lending to buyers of multi-story properties. Many new and old multi-story buildings in the UK, including many new developments in Highams Park, have struggled to pass this certificate due to cladding material used during the build. Rest assured, that this development passed the EWS1 testing (first time) and is considered safe as per the current fire safety standards set out by the UK government.

a word from the owner......

"I have lived in Highams Park for almost four years and have loved every minute of it. I have seen the area thrive in the time that I have lived here and feel incredibly safe in this warm and welcoming community. The redevelopment of the old Regal Cinema, which is due to commence in late 2022, will be an incredible addition to the area. Hickman Avenue is an amazing place to live with a warm community spirit."

Our Local Guide:
Highams Park

Hickman Avenue, Highams Park — Stow Brothers

Not everyone in the capital has heard of Highams Park, and that’s only a good thing. Although it’s well connected to Central London on the Overground to Liverpool Street, it’s tucked out of sight enough to ensure that the picturesque woodland and coffee shops have a slightly exclusive feel. That’s not to say that the locals are a cliquey bunch though – far from it, they’ve been welcoming savvy families and individuals after a little more bang for their buck for years. 

All the extra space offered up from Epping Forest and Highams Park itself might be the main draw, but newcomers stay for the perks; the silver-lining of the secret slowly getting out is a vibrant and buzzing community which has created a lively food and drink scene.
