2 Bedroom

1 Bath

A substantial two bedroom ground floor apartment, also featuring a conservatory, study and basement, all brimming with vintage character over almost 900 square feet. It's all enviably located in sought after Forest Gate Village.

There's some work still to be done here and there, but this is a perfectly placed treasure trove of original style, with all kinds of period features waiting to be bought back to life.

IF YOU LIVED HERE...

First stop will be your 120 square foot principal bedroom. Full of vintage style from the wooden shutters on the windows to the lovingly restored original timber floorboards and the gorgeous exposed brick hearth and mantel, this is a complete and characterful welcome to your new home. Double doors lead to your second sleeper, where you also have direct access to the corridor and your conservatory, a bright timber panelled corridor, alive with possibility.

Moving towards the rear, and the 230 square foot kitchen/diner is a real showcase for the sheer potential of the place. In here you have more vintage floorboards, exposed brick walls and a box fresh suite of glossy red cabinets with chunky worktops. Next is your bathroom, a sauna-style affair with lovely warm timber panelling plus a stainless steel tub surround. Finally to the rear your study is beautifully bright with skylight and floor to ceiling windows looking out to the garden. Potentially even a third bedroom.

Outside and your location needs no improvement. Wanstead Flats - once the favoured playground of Tudor kings and still the greatest green expanse for miles around - is just three minutes on foot. Forest Gate station, meanwhile, is less than a half a mile form your front door for direct fourteen minute runs to Liverpool Street or twenty minute trips to Tottenham Court Road via the Elizabeth line. So whether you're headed for the City or West End, you couldn't be better connected.

WHAT ELSE?

- The railway arches of Winchelsea Road are just ten minutes around the corner, home to a collection of much loved cafes, bars and restaurants. From Pretty Decent Beer to Wild Goose Bakery, there's a diverse range of spots to tickle your tastebuds
- Lush and secluded, your garden has plenty of scope to become a real tranquil outdoor solace. And your basement offers 270 square feet of further space, great for storage or possibly even further development.
- Wanstead Park overground is just six minutes walk for the Gospel Oak to Barking Riverside line, your direct route to the River Thames.

a word from the owner...

"The flat belonged to my parents from the 1960s. I bought the flat from my parents, which was in a dilapidated state. An extensive amount of work was needed to bring it up to its present state, for example, all the existing plastered walls had to be removed and was rendered and plaster skim coated; the rotten floor boards to the dining area were replaced with reclaimed pine floor boards from Liverpool (1880); a designer bathroom, improved conservatory and a rear studio added over 20 years ago. I have returned to enjoy Wanstead Park and its amenities, short drive to Epping Forest which has a history connected to Henry VIII. The area has changed to include more smaller cafes and better shopping experience. Close to Stratford Westfield, there is access to the University of East London and West Ham football stadium. The new Elizabeth Line will take you to Tottenham Ct. Rd within 20mins or Paddington."

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.
