3 Bedroom

2 Bath

An immaculate and characterful three bedroom Victorian terrace, laid out over three storeys including a glorious skylit loft conversion. You have twin bathrooms, dual receptions, utility room, and it's all just five minutes from Wanstead Flats.

Your expertly arranged rear garden is a meticulous mix of slate beds, Trulawn and raised timber decking. It's also home to a self contained timber studio, ideal for storage or home working.


You'll have over 900 square feet to stretch out in, every inch immaculately appointed from your pristine brick frontage on in. Reception one is the perfect welcome, with lovingly restored original floorboards underfoot, mint green walls up to the picture rail and bistro shutters on the bay window. To the rear reception two's similarly spacious and styled, and your kitchen's sleek and modern in smoke grey cabinets and flooring, with chunky white worktops, an aesthetic that continues into your handy utility room.

Head up the open plan staircase and your principal first floor sleeper sits to the front, an ample 130 square foot with twin windows and soft carpet. Bedroom two to the rear is a sizeable single, currently serving a a splendid study, and your family bathroom impresses, dressed in large format smoky grey hardwood style vinyl. Upstairs again and your loft sleeper is dual aspect and skylit, with a Juliet balcony overlooking the garden. A matching, skylit en suite completes the boutique effect.

Outside and, as noted, it's barely five minutes' walk to Wanstead Flats. Once the favoured playground of Tudor kings and queens, this is still some of the wildest, wide open green space for miles around, scattered with open blue water from nearby Jubilee Pond all the way to Alexandria Lake. Even closer to your new front door is Winchelsea Road, the heart of a loose social hub of independent cafes, craft breweries and restaurants. The Wild Goose Bakery in particular (four minutes away) is sure to become a much-loved part of your morning routine.


- Forest Gate station, for the shiny and speedy new Elizabeth line, is just half a mile on foot. From here it's just thirteen minutes to Liverpool Street or nineteen to Tottenham Court Road.
- For your new local look no further than the lovely beer garden, delicious food and drink and splendid decor at The Rookwood Village gastropub. Just ten minutes away and also home to regular events.
- Parents will be pleased to find seven 'Outstanding' primary/secondary schools, all less than a mile away on foot. The 'Outstanding' and much loved Forest Gate Community School is just half a mile away.

a word from the owner...

"We’ve loved living on Pevensey Road. The open spaces of Wanstead Flats are just around the corner, which has been perfect for our dog. There’s a great selection of pubs, cafes, and bars in the area - we particularly love Joyau which feels like a hidden gem under the arches! Leytonstone Farmers' Market (every Sunday) is a 5 minute walk, where you can get fresh fruit and veg, organic meat, cheese etc. Just make sure you get in the queue early for the Dusty Knuckle van! E7 Movement, a little boutique studio offering workout & yoga classes recently opened, which is super handy and provides a real community feel! Transport links are also very convenient with Wanstead Park (Overground) and Forest Gate (Elizabeth Line) both around a 10 minute walk away. Leytonstone tube station (Central Line) is a 25 minute walk, and there’s plenty of bus routes in the area too."

Our Local Guide:
Forest Gate

Pevensey 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.
