4 Bedrooms

3 Baths

A gloriously spacious and gorgeously appointed four bedroom, semi detached Victorian townhouse, just moments from Wanstead Village. Artfully arranged across four storeys you have over 2000 square feet of immaculately appointed living space.

Highlights are too plentiful to count, but headline features include no fewer than four reception rooms, three bathrooms, dramatically split level rear garden and a luxurious penthouse suite.


You'll be enjoying the highest standard of London living, surrounded by a blend of open green spaces and the bustling amenities of Wanstead Village. Things only get more inviting once you start to explore behind that stately brick frontage, with a choice of two dedicated doorways, as well as side access to the garden. Your lower ground floor starts with a wonderfully bright 180 square foot dining room laid semi open to your kitchen, a below-stairs classic with pristine cream cabinets and large chef's island.

An indispensable utility room and the first of your bathrooms completes the lower ground floor, while step outside for a sun-trap of a sunken courtyard with steps up to the garden. Here you have a large deck giving way to a lush length of lawn flanked with thriving greenery, all overseen by a substantially raised deck leading back inside via your skylit sunroom. On the ground floor itself now, the hallway leads to your twenty seven foot through lounge, with twin vintage hearths and blonde hardwood floors.

Upstairs, and you'll find three bedrooms, two substantial doubles of around 130 square feet apiece and a generous single of 100, all finished with the same immaculate vintage flair as the rest of this handsome property. Note the second family bathroom and separate WC before heading upstairs to the loft. Here you have an enviable penthouse suite comprising a 280 square foot skylit bedroom, with Juliet balcony, one full wall of fitted wardrobes and a sparkling shower room next door.

Wanstead High Street, the heart of this increasingly popular, bustling East London village, is less than ten minutes away on foot. Flanked by the tranquil green spaces of Memorial Green and George Green, here you'll find a full array of independent cafes, bars, restaurants and meeting spots. Former coaching Inn The Cuckfield is one of our favourites. There's also an artisanal butchers and dedicated fishmongers and you're well catered for when it comes to transport too, Wanstead station is likewise ten minutes away and will whisk you directly to Liverpool Street in sixteen, putting the City less than a half hour away door to door.


- The vast natural space of Epping Forest starts just three minutes from your front door. Explore at your leisure for Chalet Wood, The Basin and Heronry Pond. You can venture for miles without ever seeing a road. You'll forget you're in London.
- Wanstead's schools are largely excellent, less than a mile from you on foot are eleven primary/secondaries, all rated 'Good' or 'Outstanding' by Ofsted.
- As noted, you have a substantial private driveway, and drivers can be on the North Circular in five minutes.

a word from the expert...

"Being a country girl at heart, for me Wanstead is the perfect blend of village/city living. With excellent transport links into the city, I often meet up with friends to explore the wonders of London. But I also enjoy going for long, leafy walks with Hollow Ponds and Wanstead Park on my doorstep. There is a great sense of community here in Wanstead, with informative Facebook groups, street parties, a monthly farmers’ market and the local jumble trail. I have made many friends locally, there is a genuine community spirit here and I am proud to call Wanstead my home." KYLI CLAYTON E11 BRANCH MANAGER

Our Local Guide:

Selsdon Road, Wanstead — Stow Brothers

Thanks to its royal connections and grand properties, Wanstead has previously been compared to the likes of Twickenham and Richmond, although East Londoners are quick to point out that it has plenty enough merits of its own. 

For a start, despite its villagey feel, it’s proudly nestled within London’s most creative quadrant and only a short hop on the Central line from the bright lights of the City. There’s also an abundance of green space – Wanstead Flats, Epping Forest, Wanstead Park and Chalet Wood, with the seasonal display of bluebells in the latter just calling out for an accompanying picnic from one of the well-stocked local delis or cafes. But that’s not to say that Wanstead’s charming pubs and restaurants aren’t delightful to look at themselves – it’ll be deciding which to go for that’s the problem.
