This lovely studio apartment on the first floor of a double fronted Victorian terraced house is a rare find. Close to the station, shops and amenities in Leytonstone, it offers an ideal combination of a quiet residential location and easy access to everything you need.


You’d appreciate the thought that has been put into the design of this property to create a stylish and compact home with décor that’s easy on the eye and contemporary fixtures and fittings. The thoughtful layout maximises all 261 square feet of space and optimises the dual aspect. The property has great kerb appeal, with a walled front garden and tiled path leading to a handsome and symmetrical brick façade. The shared front door and hallway lead up to your own front door on the first floor. From here you enter straight into the hub of the home, a large open-plan living space that measures 13’10” by 11’10” and has two large northeast-facing windows. There’s space for a dual-purpose lounge/sleeping area and a dining table. From here, a door leads to the small central hall and the kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen at the rear of the apartment is well-equipped, with fitted wall and floor cabinets and a combination of integrated and freestanding appliances. There’s a tiled splashback and the window above the sink has leafy views and a sunny south-westerly aspect. The bathroom occupies a central position and is mainly tiled with a contemporary bathroom suite that includes a bath with a mixer shower and a glass screen, a wall-hung washbasin with a mirrored cabinet above, and a WC. The property is in a good condition, with a combination of wood laminate and tiled flooring and neutral décor. It’s double glazed throughout and has gas central heating. Overall, it’s a light and bright space that’s small but perfectly formed.


- It’s 5-10 minutes on foot to the shops and amenities in central Leytonstone, and the eclectic mix of local independent shops, cafes, and restaurants in Francis Road are just a short walk away.
- Transport links are excellent. It’s a six minute walk to Leytonstone tube station which has fast direct Central Line journeys to Stratford (4 minutes), the City (Liverpool Street 13 minutes), and the West End (Oxford Circus 24 minutes). Leytonstone High Road station, on the Gospel Oak to Barking overground line, is a 10 minute walk and from here it’s two stops to Walthamstow Central.
- There’s great access to green spaces, from small local parks like Dyers Hall Playground and Abbots Park to the large open spaces of Wanstead Flats, Leyton Flats, Hackney Marshes and the huge Olympic Park with its world-class sporting venues and facilities, all approximately a mile away.

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:

Southwest 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.
