An elegant and substantial one bedroom apartment, on the lower ground floor of a grand Victorian townhouse, looking out over the open greenery of West Ham Park. Smartly finished throughout you have a dedicated front door and private garden.

Step out from your kitchen for that wonderfully secluded private sunken deck. Perfect for morning coffee.


Step inside and your bay windowed bedroom is immediately to the left, softly carpeted, naturally bright and with a striking tower radiator. There's soft grey timber panelling above the bed and a sumptuous walk in wardrobe. Next door your bathroom's an equally luxurious affair, with large format, letterbox slate tiling underfoot, a sleek designer suite and a step up, walk in rainfall shower cubicle.

Step through your door at the end of the hallway and blonde hardwood gives way to smoky grey vinyl. Your lounge is laid semi open on the left, 130 square feet, with a striking royal blue statement wall and views out onto your private garden. Finally your kitchen's a smart, modern affair, with seamless banks of matt white cabinets, matching work surfaces and splashbacks, all home to integrated appliances.

Ideal for morning jogs and evening strolls alike, it's a life changing spot to have at your fingertips. It's also the site of the first ever FA Cup goal.

a word from the owner...

"We've been extraordinarily lucky to call this place our home for the past five years. It's a special flat with a garden that really comes alive in Spring and Summer, and high ceilings inside giving the place a very spacious feel. We've hosted some unforgettable summer BBQs for friends and family, and spent many happy mornings having coffee and pastries from local bakeries on the deck. The walk-in wardrobe in the bedroom and the wine fridge in the kitchen were some of the highlights that made us so excited to buy the property and even after all this time, the novelty of those things still hasn't worn off. The flat being on basement level means it's naturally cool during heatwaves, and retains heat well in the cosy winters. It's perfectly situated for afternoon strolls through beautiful West Ham Park, and just a 10/15 minute jaunt up to Forest Gate's buzzy high street, where Gio's and Joyau keep the wine ridge well stocked. The jazz evenings on Wednesday round the corner at The Red House are always great fun and a good excuse to have a drink with our neighbours. We've absolutely loved living here, and we wish the next owners of this wonderful home as many happy memories as we have made here."

Our Local Guide:
Forest Gate

Upton Lane, Forest Gate — Stow Brothers

If you’ve already heard Chiwetel Ejiofor or Idris Elba proudly discussing their hometown, you probably don’t need us to convince you of Forest Gate’s merits, but for those who haven’t, let us catch you up…

With a heritage rooted in culture, it’s not surprising that Forest Gate has a strong creative community today. During just one week in the 60s, the Upper Cut Club music venue there hosted – deep breath – The Who, the Animals, the Spencer Davis Group, Geno Washington and Jimi Hendrix. These days you’re more likely to find the area’s artistic-types supping drinks in the cool cafes and bars. Along with the period property and proximity to green space, this independent scene has been the main draw for new arrivals to the area, although the fact that Forest Gate is now on the Crossrail’s Elizabeth line has definitely helped nudge people in the right direction.
