A beautiful three-bedroom period home that has been lovingly renovated to celebrate all those glorious original features. The location is an excellent touch too, with Hollow Ponds, at the tip of Epping Forest, a six minute stroll away, and the lively communities of Walthamstow Village and Wood Street a short stretch further.

Not only will you find a studio in the large, leafy rear garden, but there’s also potential to extend should the need arise.


Prepare to be impressed as you step through your ornate stained-glass front door while admiring the beautiful brickwork and bay windows.

Inside you’ll find a balanced and well proportioned home full of thoughtful features, such as the Victorian Dado rails, column radiators, vintage-style internal doors and stripped wooden floorboards. The natural light that pours in throughout gives the beautiful decor an extra sparkle.

Downstairs, close the stylish partition doors and transform the reception room into a cosy den, or keep the space open and enjoy the grand scale - a particular delight if you’re entertaining. Talking of which, the dine-in kitchen will be a pleasure to cook in thanks to the combination of modern appliances and traditional fittings, with everything considered from the Gaggenau hob to the butler sink.

Open up the patio doors and head out into your show-stopper of a garden, with its sizeable decking area and stunning array of mature foliage, with an impressive garden room as the backdrop.

Upstairs, the two double bedrooms are perfectly balanced, while the third smaller room is handy for a kid’s room or home office. Conveniently located on the first floor, the bathroom is bright and well designed, with sparkling fittings, such as the walk-in shower.

Beyond, you’ll find that you’re nicely nestled between Leyton and Walthamstow, with your proximity to Hollow Ponds the icing on the cake. Wood Street not only offers an excellent transport connection (a 13 minute walk away), but also a brilliant array of eateries, such as the award-winning taquería Homies on Donkeys, excellent beer shop-cum-bar Clapton Craft and sensational bakery Chocolatine.

The same distance away, you’ll find Walthamstow Village, with all its charming perks, including brasserie-cum-store Eat 17, poke bowl specialist Peeld, top-rated chippy Orford’s Fish & Chips and tapas bar Orford Saloon. Even closer, you’ll find the Ravenswood Industrial Estate, which is home to the ever-popular God’s Own Junkyard, as well as breweries Wildcard Brewery Tap, Pillars Brewery, Trap, plus gin palace Mother’s Ruin.


- Parents will be pleased to know you have plenty of primary/secondary schools, all rated 'Good' or 'Outstanding' by Ofsted, in the area.
- While Wood Street station is your nearest transport hub, connecting you on the overground to the City, Walthamstow Central is only a 20 minute walk away, where you can access the Victoria line for speedy and regular runs into the West End.
- Stay ahead of the curve and head to The Lacy Nook, which is opening this autumn, just half a mile north of your home. There you can expect a ‘Nordic-style experience with Balkan fusion dishes on the menu’ - exciting.

a word from the owner......

"It’s been a joy living here the past 7 years. Peterborough Rd has a lovely community feel, with a friendly WhatsApp group and the nicest neighbours imaginable. We've really valued the fact that the house lies in the catchment for great schools (e.g. Henry Maynard, St Mary’s, and Barclay), is near both Walthamstow and Leytonstone tube stations, and sits right on the doorstep of cycleways through to Hackney and Central London. As a family, we’ve loved the buzz of Walthamstow Village and green spaces of Epping Forest. Inside, the house has been a quiet oasis of high ceilings, open plan living, and lovely bedrooms. The garden, designed by the previous owner (a landscape gardener), is secluded and lush, with a super useful summer house at the end. It's been a wonderful home for our young family, and we wish the new owners many happy times and great memories here."

Our Local Guide:

Peterborough 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 Leyton Technical, 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.
