A bright and striking one bedroom apartment, one of the first built inside a stately 1950s converted office block, five minutes from Leytonstone tube. It's all elegantly appointed, with a lengthy sheltered terrace and large kitchen/diner.

Located on the lower ground floor, recently refurbished, smartly finished and lovingly maintained throughout, this is a fine find in a splendid spot.

IF YOU LIVED HERE...

An immediate highlight will be that 200 square foot kitchen/diner. Smooth blonde hardwood flows underfoot, with your kitchen area smartly decked out in seamless, creamy grey cabinets, chunky white quartz counters, chrome fittings and glazed splashbacks. Your lounge area's artfully zoned by a sky blue statement wall, with natural light spilling from a floor to ceiling window, and a patio door leading to your terrace.

Step out here for your eighty square foot, sheltered outside solace, with smooth, poured concrete underfoot. Your bedroom looks out onto the terrace too, via a floor to ceiling window. It's a bright handsome double of 110 square feet, with more blonde hardwood flooring and recessed spotlights glimmering overhead. Your bathroom's a five-star boutique affair, softly lit and tiled in smoky grey from floor to ceiling, with a rainfall shower over the tub.

Outside and, as noted, Leytonstone station is less than five minutes walk for the Central line and direct fourteen minute runs to Liverpool Street, for a door to door City commute of less than twenty minutes. Heading to the West End? Tottenham Court Road is just nine minutes further. If you're staying local, then the diverse amenities, cafes, and bars of Leytonstone High Road are just a couple of minutes away.

WHAT ELSE?

- You're well served for natural spaces here, with Harry Reynolds Gardens just a third of a mile on foot, your gateway to the endless open greenery of Wanstead Flats, once the favoured playground of Tudor Kings and Queens.
- That hallway's a welcoming introduction with plenty of incidental space for bags and coats, an often-overlooked advantage in London apartment living.?- You have a great choice of great old local pubs nearby, like the Red Lion, North Star and the Birds for casual drinks, comedy nights and pub quizzes.

a word from the owner...

"I fell in love with this cosy flat, the first place I've been able to call my own. I'm not a fan of ultra-modern grey new builds, but this red brick building surrounded by grass and trees has so much character. The tall windows with their deep alcoves, and the clean modern interior with high quality finishes and gorgeous warm oak wood floors, all mean you really get the best of both worlds. The outdoor terrace space is a huge asset, and the privacy of the lower ground floor creates a peaceful space to relax. I've loved sitting outside with my morning coffee, or having a drink with friends on a summer evening, surrounded by my plants and flowers blooming in the summer. Leytonstone is a lovely area; vibrant yet wholesome, with a community feel. As a queer person, the area feels safe and inviting, and I instantly felt at home here. Evening spots include great old local pubs, music venues (Luna Lounge), and edgy new spaces like Filly Brook. The local restaurants are some of the best around, and Wild Goose Bakery is my favourite spot to grab a coffee and pastry before a walk in the park. There are loads of huge green spaces nearby to get away from the bustle and connect with nature: Hollow Ponds, Wanstead Flats, and Wanstead Park, all only a few minutes away, connecting up through forest walks to Epping Forest. Rowing boats at Hollow Ponds followed by a picnic under the trees is one of my favourite ways to spend a sunny day."

Our Local Guide:
Leytonstone

Lemna Road, Leytonstone — Stow Brothers

There’s more to Leytonstone than first meets the eye. Say the name to one person and they might think of the grand houses around Hollow Ponds, while say it to someone else and they’ll mention burgeoning South Leytonstone, or maybe the popular Bushwood. There are many different pockets, but they’re all united by the same inclusive community who recognise that it’s the balance of it all that makes Leytonstone so great.

The centre is arguably the high street with its eclectic shops and eateries, but you only have to venture slightly further away and you’ll come across hidden gems like bar Filly Brook on Grove Green Road, music venue Luna Lounge in Bushwood, or the The Hitchcock Hotel in Upper Leytonstone. Travel a little beyond and you’ll find further contrast with the vast green space that Hollow Ponds and the Wanstead Flats provide. Simply put, you’ll never get bored in Leytonstone.

Transport links

Just two stops from Stratford, Leytonstoners can nip to the Kent coast with surprising ease, but Central London or the City on the tube might be more useful - the former takes about 25 mins and the latter 15 mins. Easy.

Great Pubs

Too many pubs to choose from… What a problem to have. With The Red Lion, Heathcote and Star, The Hitchcock Hotel, The North Star, Leytonstone Tavern, locals are spoilt for choice. Better bring your pub crawl A-game if you visit.

Plenty of period property

Despite all the urban bustle, Leytonstone has an abundance of wide, tree-lined streets brimming Victorian and Edwardian property, ranging from the grand homes in Upper Leytonstone, a stone’s throw from Hollow Ponds, to the many terraces of South Leytonstone, and the popular community of Bushwood with its active residents’ association.
