3 Bedroom

2 Bath

This bright and modern three-bedroom, two-bathroom, ground-floor apartment is located in a purpose-built block in an absolutely thriving part of E10, but still with plenty of greenery to hand, including the epic Olympic Park and vast Hackney Marshes, a popular place for a weekend run or bike ride. Leyton tube is eight minutes away on foot, while Stratford International is just a short stretch further.

As well as the immaculate finish, highlights include the private patio, large communal garden, secure underground parking, bike storage and concierge service. The fact that it’s on the market chain-free is just the icing on the cake.


With over 956 square feet of immaculate internal space to enjoy, this is a home to love from the very beginning. The fact that it’s located on the ground floor makes it highly accessible for young families and pets, and there are amazing advantages to living in Rookery Court, such as the secure underground car and bike park, which is directly under the apartment and accessed via a lift or stairs (if you don’t have a vehicle you even have the option of renting the space out). There’s also a paid for co-working space and cafe on site via Mainyard Studios where you can book a desk per day. As well as the CCTV, another security perk is the friendly concierge, who are there seven days per week including evenings, and available to take and receive deliveries. This will be a game-changer if you’ve not had the service before!

As for the apartment itself, due to its immaculate decor, sweeping engineered floors and generous windows, the living/kitchen area has a bright yet warm feel. You’ll really appreciate the existing media unit storage and reinforced bracket for large TV, as well as the additional electrical points, featuring doubled glazed with a layer of sound proofing, offering peaceful environment despite its central location and fitted shelving. There’s plenty of space for fitted storage and a breakfast bar, and there’s a new integrated Bosch dishwasher.

All three bedrooms share the same immaculate finish and overlook at the well-maintained communal gardens, and the master even has a sleek ensuite, as well as fitted storage (as does the second bedroom). The smaller room could be perfect for home office if preferred, and it also enjoys access to the private patio. This fantastic space has huge potential and could be used in countless ways. Off the spacious hallway, you’ll find the main bathroom, which is just as smart and modern as the ensuite, as well as more fitted storage. The building was designed with heat efficiency in mind, including modern underfloor heating throughout and a communal heating system.

The communal garden is a highlight for residents and a great place to soak up some sun in the summer, with plenty of space to socialise or relax alone. With 97 apartments in the complex, Rookery Court is known as a friendly micro community, but your building is a low-rise with only two ground floor apartments, a bonus when it comes to peace and quiet.

As for beyond, walk south-west and you’ll in find yourself in the iconic Olympic Park, and just beyond that, Westfield Stratford. Just 20 mins away you’ll find East Bank, the UK’s newest cultural quarter, where the V&A East, BBC Music and Sadler’s Wells are moving into. Closer to home you’ve got Coronation Gardens with its picturesque band stand and landscaped maze. New local? Look out for the anticipated opening of the Leyton Engineer pub, in the fabulous listed old Leyton town hall. Head further north west and you’ll come across the part-pedestrianised Francis Road, which is now recognised across the capital as a hub thanks to its eclectic mix of eateries and stores.


- Leyton tube station is around eight minutes on foot to get you into central London via the Central line. A short stretch further you’ve got Stratford International for high-speed services, and beyond that, the incredibly well-connected Stratford station, which is on the Elizabeth line, Central line, Jubilee line, Overground and DLR.
- You won’t ever be stuck for essential items thanks to the great selection of convenience stores on Leyton High Road. You’ve also got an Asda Superstore just a few minutes away on foot. Less than five minutes away, Coronation Square is currently in development where you’ll soon be able to find community facilities such as a new healthcare centre, leisure centre and nursery.

a word from the owner...

"We moved to Leyton in 2016 as the first owners of this lovely apartment, having bought it off-plan as a newbuild. We are now relocating to Yorkshire for family reasons. We instantly saw the area's potential. The location intersects Leyton, Stratford, Hackney Marshes and the incredible Olympic Park, we are biased but it doesn’t get much better than that! We spend most of our weekends at the Olympic Park and Hackney Marshes, which are less than a 10 minute walk. From the park, you can easily walk to Westfield, Here East, East Bank and Hackney Wick. Being walking distance from the Elizabeth Line has also become a game-changer for accessing London! The area has it all, including excellent nurseries and schools all under a mile radius. One of the nicest things about the flat is the Rookery Court community. With only 97 apartments, we’ve got to know so many lovely neighbours over our time here, it’s a really welcoming and secure place to live, with a fantastic concierge team who have been here for years. It is also surprisingly quiet, with double-glazed windows facing the main road and the rest of the windows facing into the peaceful garden. Some personal recommendations of ours: Bamboo-Mat Sushi (Leyton and Stratford), Mother Kelly’s bar (East Village), Yardarm (Francis Road), Deeneys (Leyton) and F45 Fitness class Hackney Wick (8 min cycle)."

Our Local Guide:

Ruckholt 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 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.
