A beautifully luxurious, immediately striking and architecturally impressive three bedroom split level apartment in this highly sought after Grade II listed development, dating back to 1867. The beautiful vintage brick frontage is perfectly offset by the sleek, artfully developed Design & Decor.

Set amongst grand green grounds, this arresting property is less than a half mile on foot from Wanstead High Street, the bustling heart of this much-loved East London village. Despite the rural feel you have superb transport links and a fine choice of high end independent wining and dining establishments on your doorstep.


You'll be luxuriating on a daily basis in some of the finest loft-style living East London has to offer. The dramatic double height ceilings in the jaw-dropping kitchen/reception are an immediate highlight, allowing natural light to stream in via multiple sets of original sash and porthole windows. Coming in at around 500 square feet, smoky ceramic tiling runs underfoot and the open plan staircase runs past a gorgeous floor to ceiling exposed brick wall.

Step under the mezzanine in to the kitchen area and centre stage is taken by a striking stainless steel chef's island, complemented by a wealth of sleek glossy black cabinets with a suite of integrated appliances, including Siemens oven and microwave, opposite more stainless steel countertops and an exposed brick backdrop. Next door you have a handy spare WC, plus your first bedroom, a sizeable 115 square foot double.

There's a second bedroom off the vaulted main space; over 140 square foot with a triple set of large original windows overlooking the grounds, a sumptuous walk-in wardrobe and the first of your twin bathrooms. This delectable en suite is bursting with boutique charm, tiled in rich ebony mosaic from floor to ceiling and with a discrete walk in shower cubicle. You have underfloor heating and other delightful features, such as Scenestyle mood lighting, throughout.

Upstairs and the mezzanine level is in a class of its own. A striking glazed balustrade overlooks the reception area from the mezzanine snug, currently in use as the perfect pool room and leading to the vast master bedroom. In here you have an outstanding, 250 square foot space with a wonderful penthouse feel, a lusciously deep walk-in wardrobe and an en suite bathroom that's particularly impressive even in this exalted company. A freestanding vintage pewter tub takes pride of place by the twin windows, surrounded by masses of fitted storage and leading into an artfully segmented designer shower room. Luxury upon luxury.

Outside, and you're less than ten minutes on foot from Wanstead High Street. Flanked by open green spaces and rich with vintage architecture, Wanstead has a lovably rural atmosphere while still maintaining speedy transport links to central London. The High Street is bookended by Snaresbrook and Wanstead tube stations, either of which will get you directly to Liverpool Street in sixteen minutes or Tottenham Court Road in twenty five. That's right, both the City and the West End are around a half hour away door-to-door. Closer to home, Wanstead High Street itself features a whole host of delectable independent cafes and superb gastropubs the equal of anything you'll find in the centre, plus a dedicated fishmongers and artisanal butchers.


- Nature is never far away here. Less than half a mile on foot from your thriving green grounds you have the endless natural expanse of Epping Forest, as well as the tranquil blue waters of Eagle Pond.
- Your development has dedicated residents' parking, as well as a generous allocation of visitor spaces, and drivers can be on the North Circular in around five minutes.
- Current or prospective parents will be pleased to know you have four 'Outstanding' rated primary/secondary schools less than a mile on foot, plus a further six deemed 'Good' that are just as close.

a word from the owners...

"Living in Wanstead for the last 20 years has been a blessing. Wanstead has a village feel with its abundance of open air cafes and restaurants and independent shops including bakers, fishmongers and grocers. The flat is the most architecturally stunning space to live in with versatile living options and is flooded with light. We have tremendously fond memories here and it is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we now leave to start our retirement in the countryside."

Our Local Guide:

Makepeace Road, Wanstead — Stow Brothers

Thanks to its royal connections and grand properties, Wanstead has previously been compared to the likes of Twickenham and Richmond, although East Londoners are quick to point out that it has plenty enough merits of its own. 

For a start, despite its villagey feel, it’s proudly nestled within London’s most creative quadrant and only a short hop on the Central line from the bright lights of the City. There’s also an abundance of green space – Wanstead Flats, Epping Forest, Wanstead Park and Chalet Wood, with the seasonal display of bluebells in the latter just calling out for an accompanying picnic from one of the well-stocked local delis or cafes. But that’s not to say that Wanstead’s charming pubs and restaurants aren’t delightful to look at themselves – it’ll be deciding which to go for that’s the problem.
