A refined and sumptuous two double bedroom first floor apartment with the green expanse of Wanstead Flats just at the end of your street. Transport's a breeze too, with a choice of two well-connected stations within a seven minute walk.

Head to Forest Gate station for the speedy new Elizabeth line and direct thirteen minute runs to Liverpool Street, putting the City less than a half hour away door to door. Tottenham Court Road is just five minutes further. Or Wanstead Park station's ideal for the Overground.

IF YOU LIVED HERE...

You'll be stepping through your glossy onyx front door and padding up the carpeted stairs to your striking new abode. The 190 square foot open plan living space will be your first port of call - it's an impeccable space filled with natural light courtesy of a twin set of south-facing windows. Your lounge area is shuttered for privacy, smart chevron timber flows underfoot and a breakfast bar takes pride of place for expert zoning. To the rear sits a kitchen area home to a wealth of elegant grey cabinets, fully integrated appliances and a gleaming metro tiled backsplash with a Bosch induction hob and oven, and built-in dishwasher.

To the rear your bathroom is tiled from tub to ceiling in more of that covetable metro tiling, you've vintage fixtures and fittings, a shower over the tub, and an awning window framing leafy views. Head back through the living area to the front, for your immensely proportioned 175 square foot principal bedroom complete with vintage cornicing and shuttered windows. Bedroom two's just as immaculately appointed, 110 square feet with a glorious garden view.



Outside and Ramble Cafe is just five minutes on foot and a great spot for breakfast. Wrap your tastebuds around soy and ginger cured salmon served with miso butter, boiled egg, sesame seeds and sourdough, or perhaps go for the Posh Ploughmans with Prosciutto and chutney. Follow the railway line up past the arches of Winchelsea Road for Wild Goose Bakery, Wanstead Kitchen, and a fine array of nearby offerings including The Rookwood Village and The Holly Tree. Ideal for fuelling up before or after lengthy walks on the Flats.

WHAT ELSE?

- Ancient heath Wanstead Flats sits three minutes' walk from your front door. With the southernmost part of Epping Forest mere moments away, you're perfectly placed to stroll for miles all the way into the heart of Essex.
- Wanstead Park overground will get you to the newly extended Barking Riverside in three stops, ideal for jumping on the RB1 river route to the City and beyond. Or head four stops north west for a speedy swap to the Victoria line from Blackhorse Road.

a word from the owner...

"The flat has provided a fabulous home with super quick access into the city whilst enjoying the “village feel” of Forest Gate and open spaces of Wanstead Flats. We will particularly miss Fiore - a little Italian gem in the railway arches! Whilst the flat has been the perfect size for us, there is scope for the future owners to expand into the demised loft which currently provides a vast space for storage - we always thought it would provide the perfect sun trap as a roof terrace"

Our Local Guide:
Forest Gate

Latimer 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.
