4 Bedroom

2 Bath

An elegantly developed, lovingly appointed and gloriously spacious four bedroom fully detached period villa, with private driveway, garden and garage. It's all enviably located just moments from the bustling heart of Wanstead, our lovable East London village.

Barely overlooked and surrounded by mature greenery and high timber fencing, your artfully landscaped rear garden is a splendid solace. A raised patio, sat below bespoke awnings, descends to a lush, expansive lawn, ending in a shed and clear skyline.


You'll climb the steps to your sage green front door, and step inside for your generous, broad and welcoming hallway, with large format smoky grey slate tiling underfoot. Your bow windowed front reception is on your left as you enter, a handsome 150 square feet with floods of natural light, blonde hardwood floors and tower radiator. Back in the hallway there's a handy understairs cloakroom, before we get to the undisputed highlight of your new home.

Your artfully arranged, open plan 430 square foot second reception and kitchen occupies the full rear breadth, with twin sets of patio doors and a large window framing various views of that striking rear garden. A lovely smoky marbled mantelpiece takes centre stage in your lounge area, while blonde hardwood flooring gives way to smoky slate grey tilework as you step into your kitchen. In here you have a generous flank of cream cabinets, pastel letterbox splashback and double width stainless steel chef's oven.

Upstairs and bedroom one sits to the front. A generous 140 square feet, with bistro shutters on the broad bow window, plush carpet underfoot and a soft cream finish up to the picture rail. Next door bedroom two is just as covetable, with striking floor to ceiling integrated wardrobes either side of the feature vintage hearth, and a bay window with garden views. Either one would make a fine principal sleeper. Two more double bedrooms round out the sleeping arrangements, leaving you with a large family bathroom, resplendent in aquamarine letterbox tiles, and an additional sleek shower room, in smoky cream.

Outside and you're just five minutes from the tranquil blue waters of Eagle Pond and the endlessly explorable greenery of Epping Forest. Perfect for joggers and strollers alike, you'll forget you're in London and can wander all the way to Hollow Ponds, for row boat rental and friendly ducks. Even closer to home, Snaresbrook station is just three minutes on foot for speedy and direct connections to the City and West End via the Central line, while Wanstead High Street is just five minutes away, home to a charming range of independent cafes, restaurants and gastropubs.


- With that garage and driveway, you have plentiful private parking and drivers can be on the arterial North Circular in around five minutes.
- Local schools are chiefly excellent, with eight rated 'Outstanding' or 'Good' within a one mile radius. The 'Outstanding' Wanstead Church school is just five minutes' walk.
- With your loft space so far unexplored, you have scope to follow your neighbours' lead and add your own whole new storey, subject to the usual permissions.

a word from the owner...

"How can we best summaries our 25 years here...It has our best nest for so many years. We have loved living here since 1999 and we could not have seen ourselves living anywhere else in Wanstead. Our family has grown up here and at every stage of their young lives Sylvan Road has been the perfect base for them. Walking to fantastic local schools, attending clubs and classes, high street shopping, dining out locally on our amazing high street and congregating with friends at our central home. As they grew older this perfect location gave them the freedom to venture out and explore on their own with public transports nearby. We are sad to leave our lovely neighbours and community, but we know the new home owners will quickly get to know the neighbours and become part of the friendly community on Sylvan Road. We are grateful for our happy years and many happy memories and it has been a privilege to have been able to spend such a big part of our lives here."

Our Local Guide:

Sylvan Road, Wanstead — Stow Brothers

Thanks to its royal connections and grand properties, Wanstead has previously been compared to the likes of Twickenham and Richmond, although East Londoners are quick to point out that it has plenty enough merits of its own. 

For a start, despite its villagey feel, it’s proudly nestled within London’s most creative quadrant and only a short hop on the Central line from the bright lights of the City. There’s also an abundance of green space – Wanstead Flats, Epping Forest, Wanstead Park and Chalet Wood, with the seasonal display of bluebells in the latter just calling out for an accompanying picnic from one of the well-stocked local delis or cafes. But that’s not to say that Wanstead’s charming pubs and restaurants aren’t delightful to look at themselves – it’ll be deciding which to go for that’s the problem.
