A superb one double bedroom apartment, on the ground floor of a modern brick built development moments from Langthorne Park. With generous living spaces and private courtyard, it's a fantastic find less than half an hour from the City.

An immaculate communal lawn dotted with saplings greets you as you head into your new home. Inside, both your bedroom and reception open onto your own secluded courtyard. Enclosed by high fencing and lined with a beautifully planted brick border, it's a serene and stylish outside space just right for morning coffee.


All rooms open off your airy hallway, which has a welcome double helping of built in storage. First you'll come to your bedroom, a generous 140 square foot space. Dark grey wool carpet lies underfoot, and a bespoke wardrobe with sliding doors sits in one corner. Step outside from here through a glass door in to your secluded courtyard garden. Large French doors lead back inside and into your light filled kitchen reception. This versatile space gives you 265 square foot to arrange as you like.

Your kitchen occupies one corner, with a wealth of glossy grey units and worktops to match. There's built in storage to one corner, and another floor to ceiling window onto your courtyard. Pale engineered timber flooring lies underfoot. Back through the hallway you'll find your bathroom, with elegant neutral tiling to walls and floor, concealed cistern WC, and shower over the tub. A large integrated mirror fills the wall above the sink.

You're twelve minutes' walk from both Leyton Station or Maryland Station, where you can jump on the Central Line and Elizabeth Line and be at Liverpool Street in eleven minutes, and Tottenham Court Road in twenty. The Elizabeth Line can connect you to Heathrow Airport in under an hour. Langthorne Park is a few steps away, and for a grander green space the great expanse of Wanstead Flats are a quarter of an hour's walk. Plus, just a mile away you'll find the Olympic Park, with 560 acres to explore.


- Your new local is The Leyton Star, a beautifully updated pub with a mouthwatering barbecue menu and glowing gold function room.
- Leytonstone Leisure Centre has a twenty five metre pool as well as a huge range of fitness classes, and is just ten minutes from you. A little further is London Aquatics Centre with a fifty metre pool.

a word from the expert...

"Leytonstone is a unique, eclectic area, with great gastro pubs like Leytonstone Tavern and The Red Lion to bistro cafés like The Wild Goose Bakery and Gray, along with the open green space of Wanstead Flats, a serene getaway from the hustle and bustle of urban life. The area is full of history, with interesting, beautiful Grade II listed buildings like St John’s Baptist Church (built in 1832) and Leytonstone House, the 18th-century home of Sir Edward Buxton, notable MP and conservationist. There’s also St Andrew’s Church, built in 1886–1893 as a memorial to local philanthropist William Cotton. Leytonstone Library is a great place to visit if you’re feeling studious and Leytonstone Leisure centre is close by for the more actively minded. Wanstead Park, in the former grounds of Wanstead House, takes in walking trails, cycle paths and several ornamental lakes — a great place to relax, exercise and soak up some local history. With an array of buses and the Central line underground station close by, you can be in the City and surrounding areas within minutes." JOSEPH EARNSHAW E11 BRANCH MANAGER

Our Local Guide:

Oakum Square, 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.
