A spacious three-bed garden flat on the first floor of a beautiful Edwardian conversion with potential to convert the attic.

Located in the heart of the eclectic suburb of Leytonstone, the property benefits from easy access to both the lively high street and the tranquil woodlands of Hollow Pond.


You won’t be left wanting for space in this light-filled, well-maintained apartment that you can certainly grow into. With the third bedroom already offering the potential as a nursery or office, the huge loft is your oyster to extend upwards.

The immaculate living room is blessed with a large bay window, neutral modern decor and built in shelving. Adjacent is the kitchen with chic blue cabinetry, elegant wooden worktops and brushed steel appliances. With plenty of room for a table and the added advantage of opening out onto a covered stairway leading to the garden, this is the kind of kitchen destined to become the heart of the house.

The bathroom is styled in keeping with the era of the property with pedestal sink and monochrome flooring. A seperate WC makes the home more convenient for sharers.

Two more practical bedrooms with wooden flooring and crisp white walls offer a blank canvas to make the spaces your own.


- Head to The Hitchcock Hotel - named after the suburb’s legendary alumni director Alfred Hitchcock - for a pint, or gastro pubs The Leytonstone Tavern or the Red Lion for delicious comfort food. Take away the area’s best bagels at Unholy Bagels or grab a coffee of the month at Perky Blenders kiosk at the station.
- Leytonstone Station where you can hop onto the central line to the west end is just a short walk from the property or stroll a little further pick up the Overground from Leyton High Road.

a word from the owner...

"From the moment I saw the flat, I wanted to live there. It was not merely the space, which is substantial, or the good natural light, which all year round, is very bright and airy due to the large windows and uncluttered space outside. This really does make for a relaxing and open feeling environment. There is, good, direct access from the kitchen, via a relatively new, well-built, and professionally installed, steel staircase, to the garden hidden away, which makes this property special; the garden space has been, for me and those who have lived at the property, an oasis of calm and relaxation. Due to its orientation, it is filled throughout much of the day with sunshine and/or light. The secluded space is the perfect place to step away from the hustle of the outside world and catch up with yourself and switch off. The neighbours and the neighbourhood, make for a wonderful place to live. I think of all the places I have ever lived in; it is the most welcoming; as a community, it is a great place to be. Almost all of the immediate neighbouring houses and flats are occupied by residents, who have been there for years and have developed a strong sense of connections and support. This really does make for such a relaxing environment; you will feel at home immediately and no request is too big to ask. The attic space is brilliant, the size of the space is monumental and usable; there is so much scope for improvement and change. Like the garden, it has been a space where one can go up into and do small jobs, store items, or relax in for a few hours. I love the fact that the area is between the city (via reliable and direct train/tube) and the semi-rural spaces of Epping Forest (literally 5 minutes up the road by foot) which is, a real asset living in a city like London. From the moment I moved into the flat, I would spend my Sunday mornings walking around and through the forest; there is never any chance of becoming bored, the seasonal changes won't allow that! You have on your doorstep, a small, almost village like set of small shops; if you want to shop big, there is a 24 hour, supermarket, approximately 5 mins walk away, therefore, there is no need to drive. The same could be said for the local sports centre and gym, which is a short 10-12 minutes’ walk up to Essex road."

Our Local Guide:

Poppleton 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.
