2 Bedroom s

This beautifully-restored two-double bedroom, ground floor Victorian conversion has lovely features throughout and a fantastic location in the heart of Leyton, moments from the buzz of Francis Road, but still in a residential spot.

Highlights include the private garden at the rear, the bright reception room, the spacious dine-in kitchen and the spotless bathroom. Leyton tube is around 15 minutes away on foot, so you can easily nip into central London, while Stratford is an even shorter hop away.


Behind all that charming Victorian brickwork, you’ll find 586 square feet of lovingly restored space, with a timeless style that can be enjoyed for many, many years to come.

Your reception room is bright thanks to the bay windows, although the custom plantation shutters give you control over how much light you want to let in. The deep blue decor provides a calming mood, while features such as the wooden floorboards, stunning fire surround and bespoke shelving create an instant impression.

The kitchen-diner is just as pristine. Again, there’s plenty of natural light, while the parquet flooring, forest green units and vintage-style brass fittings keep things stylish.

You’ll find a similar theme in the bathroom, which is traditional in style, with features such as the glossy floor to ceiling metro brick tiles, but still very modern, with an over-tub shower.

As for the bedrooms, they’re both doubles, with more of that pristine decor.

At the rear, you’ll really appreciate the garden, especially when you can enjoy eating or drinking outside. The lawn is a great size, while the planters will be a joy for amateur and pro gardeners alike. The storage shed will be handy, too.

Just beyond your front door, you’ll come across the part-pedestrianised Francis Road, which is now recognised across the capital as a hub thanks to its eclectic mix of eateries and stores, ranging from upmarket deli Yardarm and independent book shop Phlox, to mouth-watering patisserie Morny and independent store Dreamhouse records.

Walk 20 minutes south-west (or hop on the bus if you’re in a hurry) and you’ll in find yourself in the iconic Olympic Park, and just beyond that, Westfield Stratford. Nearby there’s also East Bank, a unique collaboration between world-leading universities, arts and culture institutions. Sadler’s Wells, BBC and V&A are all moving into the area there, so you’re in good company. Even closer to home, you’ll find hidden gem Sidmouth Park, which has a great playground.

- Leyton tube station is around 15 minutes on foot to get you into central London via the Central Line. Or hop on to the Overground at Leyton Midland Road for the Gospel Oak to Barking line, a short 7 minute walk away.
- You won’t ever be stuck for essential items thanks to the great selection of convenience stores on Leyton High Road. Tesco Superstore is a short walk away.
- Even if you’re not a follower of footballer, it’s worth checking out the nearby Leyton Orient. Currently at the top of League Two, the ‘O’s’ encourage people of all ages to come along to the Breyer Group Stadium to take in the sights and sounds of a game.

a word from the owners.....

"We have absolutely loved our time here on Murchison Road and will be very sad to leave our flat, the fantastic location and lovely neighbours . From the moment we saw our home we knew it gave us the space we were hoping for when we were moving to Leyton to buy our first property. It has been brilliant having a kitchen big enough to have friends over to entertain, and the garden has brought us so much happiness - sunbathing, bbqing and now playing with our toddler! We had a great time here as a couple, making the most of all the great pubs and cafes that are close by - the Coach and Horses at the end of the road has been a particular favourite! Our flat went on to be the perfect place to start our family. We have made fantastic friends here through having our daughter, and there are so many brilliant things to do nearby with a baby and toddler. Francis Road being on our doorstep has been just lovely. As well as being in a perfect spot for Leyton it’s also super easy to get to Stratford, Walthamstow and Leytonstone so there’s easy access to everything, including central London on the central line. We have enjoyed renovating the kitchen and decorating the rest of the flat through our time here as our family evolved, and simply need a bit more space now. We hope our flat will be as happy a home for someone else as it has been for us."

Our Local Guide:

Murchison Road, Leyton — Stow Brothers

Assured locals barely bat an eyelid when the national press dub Leyton one of ‘best places to live’ in London – it’s been a regular feature since the 2012 London Olympics regeneration, but the area’s constant evolution means even frequent visitors can get taken aback by just how much it has going on. 

With the lively cafes on Francis Road, the bustling High Road, the family-friendly footie action and easy access to the Olympic Park, Leyton can often feel like a city within a city. What’s more, these various layers work together to create a balanced community that comes free of any pretension, so even newbies can find themselves having a natter with the locals while they explore Leyton’s latest delights. It’s an easy reach too, with the Central line connecting Leyton with the city to the west, and leafy Essex to the east.

Transport links

There’s no ‘late’ in Leyton thanks to the excellent transport links. Leyton tube is on the Central line with direct trains into the City and Central London, while Leyton Midland Road is handily placed on the Overground line, as is the new-ish Lea Bridge station.

Great Pubs

Whether you want a quiet pint in the sunshine or a night of banging tunes, Leyton has you covered for pubs. With The Leyton Star, The Coach & Horses, William the Fourth, locals and visitors are spoilt for choice.

Plenty of period property

Leyton’s amenities might be largely new additions, but a lot of the property is gloriously old. Victorian and Edwardian houses are plentiful - including budget-friendly ‘doer-uppers’, and the wide tree-lined streets add further appeal.
