3 Bedroom

1 Bath

An ingeniously developed, three bedroom Victorian end terrace, with an artfully extended kitchen/diner and lush rear garden backing onto the boundless greenery of Wanstead Flats. Forest Gate Elizabeth Line station is just a half mile on foot.

Adding to your already impressive square footage you have a double garage and substantial cellar, ideal for storage or further development.


Step past that handsome frontage for your 250 square foot through lounge, with the high ceilings and ornate vintage features of the period. It's all dual aspect and naturally bright, with that bay window to the front, patio doors to the rear and blonde hardwood flowing underfoot in between. Next door your similarly sized kitchen/diner gleams in seamless white cabinetry and glossy grey floor tiling, the original rear bay flowing seamlessly into your gloriously bright conservatory, framing impressive garden views.

Out here, zero maintenance patio stretches away between thriving greenery, beds, pots and planters, ending in that large double garage, with nothing beyond but the endless greenery of Wanstead Flats. Back inside and upstairs, your sumptuous landing's brimming with artful vintage touches and all three bedrooms are substantial doubles with bay windows front and back, soft carpets and characterful colour schemes. Finally your family bathroom is fully tiled in glossy sandstone, with a walk in rainfall shower.

Outside and you can stroll down the side of your new home to be loose among the endless greenery of Wanstead Flats in barely a moment. Once the favoured playground of Tudor Kings & Queens, this is still some of the wildest, wide open greenery for miles around. You'll forget you're in London. But the city's never far away, Forest Gate station is just a half mile on foot for direct thirteen minute connections to Liverpool Street. Heading to the West End? Tottenham Court Road is just six minutes further.


- Winchelsea Road, a local social hub at the heart of an evolving range of independent bars, gastropubs and restaurants, is just five minutes away. Enjoy everything from fine wines at Joyau to delicious pastries at Wild Goose Bakery.
- With your loft space so far unexplored you could potentially add your own whole new storey, as your neighbours have done (subject to the usual permissions) making this a home to meet your needs for years to come.
- Parents will be pleased to find sixteen primary/secondary schools, all rated 'Outstanding' or 'Good' by Ofsted, and all less than twenty minutes' walk. The 'Outstanding' Forest Gate Community School is less than half a mile on foot.

a word from the expert...

"When I decided to move to Forest Gate a few years ago, I was drawn by the great housing stock, the green spaces of Wanstead Flats and the friendly, up-and-coming vibe of independent boutiques, eateries, and bars. I’ve spent many a happy weekend walking on the flats and in Wanstead Park. Often, I’ll finish up with an all-trimmings roast at The Holly Tree or perhaps a fantastic curry from The Wanstead Kitchen. After living here for a while, you really start to feel happy and settled. I love the arty, independent feel of Forest Gate, and I get the impression I’m not the only one — it’s something all the locals nurture and support." JOSEPH EARNSHAW E7 BRANCH MANAGER

Our Local Guide:
Forest Gate

Sidney 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.
