2 Bedroom

1 Bath

Located in a much sought-after part of Leytonstone, this fantastic one-bedroom period conversion is set within a glorious double-fronted home and benefits from having a separate kitchen and reception, as well as a study.

Situated moments away from the excellent bars, eateries and delis found around the Grove Green Road neighbourhood, you’ll benefit from being in an area that’s already surpassed ’up-and-coming’ status and moved onto being a bonafide hot destination. What’s more, it’s just seven minutes on foot to the Central line, so getting into the West End or City will be a doddle.


It’ll take a long time before the novelty of walking up to your grand double-fronted home wears off, and the second floor apartment is just as stunning on the inside too. You benefit from having a separate reception room and kitchen, both of which have spotless neutral decor. The bedroom is a double, and the smaller study will be a brilliant additional space - both have more of that polished finish and wooden floors. The bathroom is sleek and modern, and the eaves storage will be very convenient.

Beyond that lovely frontage, you're perfectly placed for all that Leytonstone has to offer; the Filly Brook, Heathcote & Star and Arch Deli are right on your doorstep and sure to become your new faves, while the excellent amenities of Leyton’s Francis Road are just a short stretch further. Head south and you’ll find award-winning Thai restaurant Singburi, hidden gem Panda dim sum and sensational taqueria Homies on Donkeys, which won BBC2’s Britain’s Top Takeaway.

You’ll never be stuck for essentials since there’s an abundance of convenience stores on the Leytonstone High Road, plus you’re only a short hop on the bus or Central line from Westfield Stratford and the Olympic Park. Looking to get out of London? Drivers are less than ten minutes from the North Circular.


As well as being seven minutes to Leytonstone tube for the Central line, Leytonstone High Road station is slightly further for the Gospel Oak to Barkingside line - handy if you want to nip to the Essex seaside. Despite the thriving amenities, there’s a surprising amount of green space nearby. For instance, head south via the Bushwood area - renowned for its wide, tree-lined streets of grand Victorian and Edwardian homes - and you’ll find the Wanstead Flats, once the favoured hunting ground of Henry VIII. Hollow Ponds, at the tip of Epping Forest, is also walking distance. The property is on the market chain-free, taking some of the stress of moving out of the equation.

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.
