You'll love having the many and varied attractions of Stratford within easy reach. Whether you're taking in the views from the ArcelorMittal Orbit in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, strolling the broad promenades of Westfield Stratford City, or making use of the handy confluence of travel connections, you've the best of all worlds here. You can even walk to Leytonstone High Road in twelve minutes to get the Overground to Barking and on to the sandy climes of Southend-on-Sea! Inside and your 220 square foot lounge/kitchen/diner is a sleek space with south-east-facing twin windows bouncing natural light off pristine white walls. Smartly engineered hardwood flows underfoot and the kitchen area's home to seamlessly integrated appliances housed in impeccable glossy units. Your bedroom's a plush-carpeted generous double of 115 square feet with a garden view, while the bathroom's sublime and sparkling in white tiles, with a shower over the tub and vintage fixtures and fittings.

When it comes to natural environs you're spoiled for choice. Langthorne Park is a four minute stroll away, with a wealth of outdoor sporting facilities and amphitheatre as well as the Quiet Garden, for those times when you just need to sit and recharge. Wanstead Flats is a fourteen minute walk or five minute cycle (check out Winchelsea Arches for an array of eateries en route), while beyond the Olympic Park lie Hackney Marshes and Victoria Park. On your way to the latter you're bound to find a new favourite spot among the esoteric offerings of Hackney Wick.


- Your new local is the friendly Birkbeck Tavern, just a few doors down from your new abode. It's an old-school pub with a lawned beer garden and no fewer than two dartboards.
- Date night? Head to Figo for fresh Italian fare. From crispy pizzas to truffle ravioli and pistachio cannelloni, there's something for every palate here.
- You're a mere seven minute walk from Leyton underground, from where the Central Line will whizz you to Stratford in five minutes or Liverpool Street in under fifteen.

a word from the owner...

"My flat is bright and cosy and, being located on the top floor, the sunrise brings lovely light into the living space in the morning. In winter, the flat is warm and cosy thanks to the double glazed windows and recently replaced and insulated roof, completed December 2021. It is also very quiet as the the flat is located in a low traffic neighbourhood with no through traffic and backs onto St Patrick's Cemetery. Unusually for a flat of this size it benefits from good storage space. There are two built in closets that house clothes storage and a washing machine with shelving above, but additionally you have access it to the loft which is fantastic to keep your suitcases and boxes. It's an absolute gem as storage space in London is so scarce. A short walk from the flat, you have lovely Francis Road where you can find cafes to grab a coffee, deli and a cute little bakery. You can even stock up on natural wine or have a glass on weekends just down the road at Dina wine. A ten minute walk away is Singburi, one of the best restaurants in London and unbelievably cheap to boot. Within convenient distance there is also Westfield Stratford City for shopping without having to head to central London on weekends and great to have Elisabeth line connecting at Stratford which makes Heathrow journey easier."

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.

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.
