A substantial and spacious four bedroom, mid-terrace Victorian home across three floors, in a sought-after Leyton locale. This property features handsome brick frontage for immediate curb appeal and comes with a lush, landscaped rear garden.

Your new home nestles in a tree-lined, no through road in an enviable sweetspot between Walthamstow and Leytonstone, with a wealth of urban culture and culinary treasures to tempt you.

IF YOU LIVED HERE

You'll be impressed, stepping through your light-filled, characterful Victorian entrance with ornate stained glass detailing, onto gorgeous, highly polished parquet flooring. A cast iron fireplace with a magnificent marble surround is a focal point in your vast, open plan, 515 square feet double reception/diner. You have views through from a generous, shuttered bay, to stunning, anthracite grey-framed bi-fold doors to the rear. It's hard to overstate the quiet harmony of this serene space, filled with light from a feature skylight, reflecting off beautifully grained boards underfoot.

Your splendid kitchen is chic with pale clay hued units pairing elegantly with a refined, veined marble countertop. Brushed steel highlights and high-end, integrated appliances evoke a contemporary feel while authentic-style radiators and coving nod to this home's fine Victorian pedigree. A tower radiator further fuses old and new influences in this immaculate setting where Design and Decor is at a premium. There's a cloakroom off to one side with plenty of incidental space for bags and coats (originally a spare WC, it'll be a simple matter to reconvert). Dual aspect, floor to ceiling doors lead to a lovingly landscaped courtyard that's perfect for summer entertaining.

On your first floor, two airy bedrooms are carpeted for a cosy feel. Your master has an impeccable en suite with a stand-alone, double-sized, rainfall shower. Your main bathroom's a soothing sanctuary, restful in sage green, polished marble and crisp white, with a shower over your full-length tub. Your top floor is a masterclass in exemplary conversion where you'll find two delightful bedrooms. The first is a generous 210 square feet, with feature skylights, a charming picture window and a wealth of under-eaves storage. Your fourth bedroom, another double, is currently in use as a glamorous walk-in wardrobe.

Gravity Well Taproom nestles in a railway arch just ten minutes away, serving up a dizzying array of craft beers. Perky Blenders, also ten minutes' walk, is catnip for coffee lovers and John Dory Seafood offers sustainably-sourced, fresh sea fare. Leyton Manor Park's fitness area, as well as a football pitch and a basketball court, is close and Francis Road, with its vast array of independent cafes, artisanal shops, destination restaurants and gastropubs, is just fourteen minutes.

WHAT ELSE?

- Leyton Midland Road station is ten minutes walk, for the Gospel Oak to Barking line, or the 'Goblin' as locals term it, for a speedy swap to the Victoria line for Kings Cross and the West End. Or make use of the Overground for an easy route to Southend and the seaside. Drivers can be on the North Circular in under fifteen minutes.
- Parents will be pleased to know that you have twenty two primary and secondary schools rated 'Good' or ‘Outstanding' all lying within a mile.
- As well as your rear garden, you have a sizeable, paved front yard, with neat storage facilities for gardening or other uses, so you'll never be short of outside space.

a word from the owners...

"We have loved living on Sophia Road. With one end of the street being restricted and being at the end of the one way system it is by far the quietest road we have lived on in London. It is perfectly placed within walking distance to both Francis Road and Walthamstow Village for shops and cafes, as well as having more parks than you can visit in a day. Nearby Brooks farm is a family favourite. We had the bike store built out front as we found ourselves cycling to Wanstead Flats and Epping forest most weekends. The open plan ground floor makes it a really sociable house and in the summer months opening up the bifold doors makes the garden a true extension to the house."

Our Local Guide:
Leyton

Sophia 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 Leyton Technical, 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.
