2 Bedroom s

A charming two bedroom, first floor apartment located close to Forest Gate Station. This immaculate, light-filled home offers superlative Design & Decor, with red brick frontage for maximum kerb appeal. There's also a sizeable front yard.

Nestling quietly in a leafy, tranquil street, your new home sits in the environs of the sought-after Woodgrange Estate, a highly respected Victorian housing project built as a handsome middle class suburb.

IF YOU LIVED HERE

You'll be immediately impressed with your bright entrance hall, packed with original features including vintage coving and dado rail, all leading to your beautiful 125 square feet reception. Here, light bounces around the room from a generous window for a relaxed and airy, scandi feel'. Your two bedrooms are similarly serene, in blush pinks and calming creams. Chic, biscotti carpet gives a cosy, luxurious feel in the master.

Your smart and practical kitchen makes for a refined look with high gloss, anthracite units and almond walls. There's plenty of room for a breakfast bar, and a Victorian-style radiator, one of many gracing this heritage property, sets an elegant tone. Your bathroom is a classic in crisp white with a chrome shower-head over your tub. You have a pristine suite, with handy built-in storage above your basin. To the front aspect, your sizeable garden is a heavenly haven of outdoor space.

Your new locale has a wealth of local amenities and must-visit cafes and restaurants. Tracks, a cafe, restaurant and carefully curated record emporium is just a half mile on foot, with the much loved Ramble Cafe nestling just a few railway arches down. Finally, Giovanna's Italian Deli, Wine Bar & Pizzeria is just at the end of the road only a two minute walk away and is sure to become a favourite. Wanstead Flats, once the favoured hunting grounds of Henry VIII, is just minutes away, for a tranquil respite from city-life.

WHAT ELSE?

- Crossrail has come to Forest Gate Station, just five minutes away on foot for fast access to Liverpool Street in under twenty minutes. Or stroll for ten minutes to pick up the Overground at Wanstead Park Station. Drivers can be on the arterial A12 in around fifteen minutes.
- Parents will be pleased to know there are nineteen 'Good' and 'Outstanding' schools within a mile.
- Your splendid Victorian conversion is sitting pretty in the Woodgrange conservation area, so its irreplaceable, unique character, is protected.

a word from the owner.....

"We have loved our time at 78a and will be sad to leave, but we won't be going far! The flat is really light and calm, and it is brilliantly located. We are only a five minute walk to the station and the Elizabeth Line, with Wanstead flats under 10 minutes walk away for long walks and runs. Forest Gate has a fantastic array of cafes, restaurants and pubs - we particularly love Giovanna's at the end of our road for Pizza and wine, Tracks under the railway arches, and the Forest Tavern for Sunday Roasts. The road is quiet, the neighbours are all really friendly and there is a strong community feel. We hope the next owner enjoys their time here as much as we have!"

Our Local Guide:
Forest Gate

Osborne Road, Forest Gate — Stow Brothers

If you’ve already heard Chiwetel Ejiofor or Idris Elba proudly discussing their hometown, you probably don’t need us to convince you of Forest Gate’s merits, but for those who haven’t, let us catch you up…

With a heritage rooted in culture, it’s not surprising that Forest Gate has a strong creative community today. During just one week in the 60s, the Upper Cut Club music venue there hosted – deep breath – The Who, the Animals, the Spencer Davis Group, Geno Washington and Jimi Hendrix. These days you’re more likely to find the area’s artistic-types supping drinks in the cool cafes and bars. Along with the period property and proximity to green space, this independent scene has been the main draw for new arrivals to the area, although the fact that Forest Gate is now on the Crossrail’s Elizabeth line has definitely helped nudge people in the right direction.
