2 Bedroom

1 Bath

A beautifully bright and spacious two bedroom apartment on the ground floor of a generous Victorian conversion just off our much-loved destination of Francis Road. You have a wealth of vintage style throughout, plus secluded rear garden.

You're well placed for transport links; Leytonstone tube station is just a half mile away on foot for direct fourteen minute runs to Liverpool Street. Putting the City well within a half hour door to door.

IF YOU LIVED HERE…

You'll be enjoying a characterful blend of classic and contemporary Design & Decor throughout. Your front lounge totals a generous 135 square feet, with glossily restored original timber floorboards underfoot and a lovely period cast iron hearth and mantel taking centre stage, all bathed in natural light from that large bay window. Your first bedroom sits next door, a solid double with a similar set of original fixtures.

Your kitchen/diner, by contrast, is all clean, modern lines with sleek vertical letterbox splashbacks, timber counters and dove grey cabinetry. Step outside and your side return is a sheltered solace, blooming out into your garden proper where you have a lush lawn, thriving foliage and high timber fencing. Back inside and your rear bedroom's a charming affair in pastel mint, while your bathroom's sumptuously finished in white metro tiling.

Francis Road's famous range of independent cafes and stores attracts visitors from all over London and it's right at the end of your road. Just a few steps away for delightful meeting spots like Marmelo Kitchen, Albert & Francis or the Yardarm Wine Bar. One of the area's best-loved gastropubs, The Northcote Arms, also sits on this famous street. Less than a quarter mile from your front door.

WHAT ELSE?

- If you have little ones you'll be pleased to know there are six 'Outstanding' primary schools less than a mile away on foot.
- The landscaped delights of Leyton's Coronation Gardens are less than a half mile away on foot anytime you fancy a delightful evening stroll. Sidmouth Park is closer still if you just want a run.

a word from the owners...

"We've loved living at 228 Richmond Road. It's been the perfect first home for us and we've really enjoyed making it our own. Everyone who visits comments on how cosy, calm and quiet it is here, especially given it's location in buzzy Leyton! Living in Leyton has given us a great quality of life. We've made lots of local friends, especially with the birth of our little boy in 2019. We regularly take the central line into London's galleries and museums and when we need a break from it all, Epping Forest is just 15 minutes in the car, and Whitstable just over an hour. There's a real community feel in Leyton, with lots of events taking place throughout the year. Our neighbours are great and we've enjoyed many a sunset drink in our front garden during the summer months! We've also enjoyed contributing to the upkeep of the Richmond Road pocket park. We're really sorry to say goodbye 228 Richmond Road but hope that the new owner enjoys as many happy times here as we have."

Our Local Guide:
Leytonstone

Richmond 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.
