2 Bedroom

A two bedroom Victorian terrace, lovingly appointed and expertly finished throughout, with extensive courtyard garden, dual bathrooms and twin receptions. It's all a short stroll from Leytonstone tube and the epic greenery of Wanstead Flats.

With your loft space so far untouched you have plenty of scope for further development, perhaps following in the footsteps of some of your neighbours and adding your own whole new storey.

IF YOU LIVED HERE

You'll step inside and find your first reception on your right, 130 square feet with handsome bistro shutters on the bay window and richly restored original timber floors underfoot. Past the stairs there's more of those vintage floorboards in your kitchen, along with stainless steel cabinets, counters and integrated oven with extractor fan. A skylit, artfully arranged shower room is next, just off your secondary hallway.

The ground floor's completed by your lovingly extended second reception. Dual aspect and skylit, it's a warmly welcoming affair with vaulted, timber panelled ceiling and classic beams. Patio doors frame views of your garden, a substantial low maintenance courtyard. Upstairs, both your landing and family bathroom are nicely skylit, the latter home to a vintage suite. A pair of handsome, naturally bright double bedrooms provide the sleeping arrangements.

Outside and, as noted, you're barely a half mile on foot from the Central Line at Leytonstone. From here it's just fourteen minutes direct to Liverpool Street and twenty three to Tottenham Court Road, putting both the City and West End around a half hour away door to door. Leyton Midland Road overground is closer still, just five minutes on foot for the Gospel Oak to Barking Riverside line.

WHAT ELSE?

- An epic array of open natural spaces, from Wanstead Heath to Wanstead Golf Club, Wanstead Flats, the blue waters of The Basin and Chalet Woods, all start just ten minutes from your front door. With no shortage of space to lose yourself in, you'll forget you're in London.
- The property is presented chain free, for that all important hassle free move.
- Date night? Take the fifteen minute stroll to Winchelsea Road and surrounding area, for a wide range of wining and dining spots. Our pick? The varied menu at Rookwood Village, reached via a pleasant stroll along the borders of the heath.

a word from the expert...

"Leytonstone is a unique, eclectic area, with great gastro pubs like Leytonstone Tavern and The Red Lion to bistro cafés like The Wild Goose Bakery and Gray, along with the open green space of Wanstead Flats, a serene getaway from the hustle and bustle of urban life. The area is full of history, with interesting, beautiful Grade II listed buildings like St John’s Baptist Church (built in 1832) and Leytonstone House, the 18th-century home of Sir Edward Buxton, notable MP and conservationist. There’s also St Andrew’s Church, built in 1886–1893 as a memorial to local philanthropist William Cotton. Leytonstone Library is a great place to visit if you’re feeling studious and Leytonstone Leisure centre is close by for the more actively minded. Wanstead Park, in the former grounds of Wanstead House, takes in walking trails, cycle paths and several ornamental lakes — a great place to relax, exercise and soak up some local history. With an array of buses and the Central line underground station close by, you can be in the City and surrounding areas within minutes." JOSEPH EARNSHAW E11 BRANCH MANAGER

Our Local Guide:
Leytonstone

Southwell Grove 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.
