5 Bedrooms

2 Baths

A grandly spacious and sumptuously appointed five bedroom Edwardian townhouse, set nicely back from this peaceful, tree-lined street just moments from Woodford station. You have a wealth of sociable space and an endlessly explorable garden.

Woodford station is three minutes on foot and will get you directly to Liverpool Street in twenty via the central line. Despite your leafy green locale, this all puts the City less than a half hour away door to door.

IF YOU LIVED HERE

You'll be stretching out in almost 3000 square feet of artfully appointed living space behind that statuesque Edwardian brick frontage. Step through your double width, stained glass storm porch and your welcomingly broad entrance hall is immediately entrancing, with a stately, manor house feel and a wide array of doorways to explore.

The first of your many, many hosting rooms is on the right, a vast bow-windowed affair of 275 square feet. Your feet sink into plush carpeting as you take in the peach pink walls, the first of a range of characterful spots for guests. Across the hall there's your second reception, dual aspect and smartly finished. You can explore further for another pair of receptions, the rearmost a huge twenty eight foot deep and basking beneath a large skylight with a rear wall of bi folding patio doors.

Throw these back and step outside for your immense rear garden, more properly described as grounds at 115 feet in length and home to a thirty five foot wide patio, giving way to that vast, pristine lawn, all home to a delightful array of mature greenery. As an outdoor solace, it is unsurpassed. Back inside and your multiple hosting options are completed by a bright conservatory, perfect for sharing the garden with guests all year round.

The ground floor is completed by a handy spare WC, and your kitchen, a suitably generous culinary space decked out with floor to ceiling farmhouse style cream cabinetry and flagstone effect vinyl underfoot. Upstairs your five bedrooms are a diverse, characterful set of doubles, ranging from 125 to 230 square feet. You have two bathrooms up here too; a shower room with traditional suite and a grand family affair with mahogany paneling, tub and dedicated shower cubicle for starting, or ending, the day in style.

WHAT ELSE?

- Parents will be pleased to know that you have ten 'Outstanding' or 'Good' schools less than a mile away on foot. There's also the independent Woodford Green Preparatory School less than ten minutes stroll.
- You have that broad, stately driveway with space for two cars, and drivers can be on the North Circular in five minutes.?- Ten minutes on foot gets you to the expansive greenery of Woodford Green Cricket Club and other open natural spaces. All perfect for morning jogs and evening strolls.

a word from the expert...

"Woodford Green, as its name suggests, has ample open spaces, including village greens, parks and forest land. The area has a number of popular pubs and eateries. For Italian, the superb Bel Sit is known for its authentic family feel and collection of football shirts. Rosso on the Broadway and Mezze on the Green are also really popular. Along the High Road are a number of historic ‘watering holes’ including the Cricketers, Travellers Friend, Rose & Crown and Horse & Well. For local shopping, Woodford Broadway is a good choice, including a lovely new fishmonger called Fatfish. There are plenty of bigger family homes here, including the beautiful Arts and Crafts houses on the Monkhams Estate. Nearby is the charming inter-war Laings Estate with its green verges and pocket parks. For younger couples and families, there are smaller terraced houses and conversions to be snapped up. Woodford Green is an ideal location for people looking for a mixture of town and country life, and a great place to put down family roots." BEN CHARLETON E18 ASSISTANT MANAGER

Our Local Guide:
Woodford Green

Monkhams Drive, Woodford Green — Stow Brothers

In case you hadn’t already picked up on the clues in the name, Woodford Green is a charming sanctuary of leafy loveliness within a short hop of Central London. Yes, you read that right – duck ponds, cricket greens and quaint pubs… all just 30-ish minutes from Oxford Circus. No wonder savvy families have been making the area home for a while now – the area’s excellent schools are just the icing on the cake.

Thanks to its close proximity to Epping Forest, visitors head to Woodford Green for scenic walks, and then refuel at one of the area’s cosy traditional pubs such as the Travellers Friend or The Cricketers. There’s also a lively food scene, but just low key enough to ensure the neighbourhood has a close-knit, villagey vibe.
