An artfully appointed, beautifully finished three bedroom family home, brimming with style, character and original features. Sat in the heart of Leyton, you have Langthorne Park on your doorstep and Leyton tube just ten minutes away.

The great green expanse of Wanstead Flats is just a half mile on foot. Once the favoured hunting grounds of Tudor kings and still some of the wildest, wide open natural space for miles around. You'll forget you're in London.


You'll have over 1000 square feet of lovingly designed and developed living space to luxuriate in, from that handsome brick frontage on in. Richly restored original timber floorboards run underfoot in your hallway, with ornate original mouldings set into the high ceilings and timber staircase rising ahead. On your left you have the twenty-one foot deep through lounge, dual aspect and home to striking tower radiators and a pair of vintage hearths.

To the rear, your 150 square foot kitchen is just as impressive, naturally bright thanks to its own box bay window and a handsome suite of cream cabinets with brass fittings, sat below timber worktops and set against an enticing exposed brick backsplash. Step out into your garden here for a secluded sun trap of a courtyard, overseen by mature greenery. Back inside and the first of two bathrooms completes the ground floor, classically stylish with chessboard flooring, freestanding clawfoot tub and corner shower cubicle.

Upstairs, and your bedrooms are all characterfully finished in boutique hotel chic. Your 165 square foot principal sleeper sits to the front, elegantly bedecked in royal blue with a striking statement wall over the bed and classic bistro shutters on the windows. Next door, bedroom two's another double with its own style and palette, while bedroom three to the rear is currently in use as a splendid home office and dressing room. Finally, your second bathroom is a polished affair, with emerald green herringbone tiling from floor to ceiling, plus oversized rainfall shower cubicle.

Outside and Leyton tube station is less than ten minutes walk for the central line and direct, eleven minute runs to Liverpool Street for a speedy City commute. Tottenham Court Road is just nine minutes further, so even the West End is just a half hour away door to door. If you're staying local you'll find the independent cafes and coffee shops of Francis Road just a half mile away on foot, and there's a fine choice of bars and restaurants on nearby Winchelsea Road, less than fifteen minutes walk away.


- As noted, the wooded greenery of Langthorne Park is just a moment away, right around the corner and home to basketball courts, a playground, climbing wall and outdoor gym as well as the Langthorne Park Amphitheatre performance space.?- Leytonstone High Road overground station is also nearby, just over a half mile on foot for the Gospel Oak to Barking Riverside line, a direct route to the banks of the River Thames.?- Parents will be pleased to find four 'Outstanding' rated primary/secondary schools within a mile, with a further thirteen just as close, and deemed 'Good'.

Our Local Guide:

North Birkbeck 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.

Features + Perks

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.
