3 Bedroom s

A refined and enviably located three bedroom mid terrace just moments from the expansive greenery of Wanstead Flats and around the corner from our go-to spot of Winchelsea Road. You have through lounge, contemporary kitchen and rear garden.

Forest Gate Arches sit two minutes away at the end of the street - an excellent option for foodies and ale lovers alike. From the Wanstead Tap craft beer shop and bar, the Wanstead Kitchen and Pretty Decent Beer, there's something for everyone, plus a whole host of surrounding establishments to boot.


You'll be relaxing with friends and family in your light-filled 210 square foot through lounge with a bay window to the fore, impeccable timber floorboards underfoot and a wealth of versatile space. Next door sits your family bathroom - a chic affair with a double length walk-in rainfall shower cubicle wrapped in a sumptuous stone blue tiled surround, and a separate tub. All flooded with natural light from the skywell overhead.

Continue through and your 200 square foot kitchen/diner's no less impressive. In here twin skylights illuminate the entire dual aspect space, picture windows sit by the dining area, and the kitchen's home to wooden worktops and fully integrated appliances. Step through the elegant black doors to the rear for your twenty foot rear garden - it's a wonderfully private mix of decking and raised lawn, all overseen by mature foliage and climbing wisteria. Lastly, head upstairs for two immaculate double bedrooms, a sizeable single and handy WC.

Outside and Wanstead Park station is a nine minute walk or three minute cycle and will speed you across North London on the Gospel Oak to Barking overground line. A couple of minutes' walk further gets you to Forest Gate station for the brand new Elizabeth Line's myriad destinations which include Bond Street, Paddington, Canary Wharf and Heathrow Airport. If you drive then you can be coasting along the North Circular in ten minutes.


- Current and prospective parents will be pleased to know you have twenty one primary/secondary schools in a one mile radius rated 'Good' or better by Ofsted. Five of these have 'Outstanding' status.
- Look out for community favourite Woodgrange Market Place. It's opposite Forest Gate station and offers up organic vegetables and the freshest bread on Saturdays.
- Your new local is The Holly Tree, probably the only pub you'll find with its own miniature railway. Just four minutes away on foot.

a word from the owners...

"We have loved being part of the Forest Gate community, and our green oasis on Vansittart Road. We live in the kitchen, with the doors open to the garden. We inherited a Wisteria and grapevine, which thrive in the afternoon sun (and we've made stuffed vine leaves each year). It is a great corner of Forest Gate - from running on the Flats to coffee at the Wild Goose or a pint at Pretty Decent and the Holly Tree. Our kids scoot to the Jubilee ponds, Patch, Kay Rowe nursery and Davies Lane School and now to the newly-opened Can Club. In spring, the cherry trees on Vansittart Road burst into cherry blossom."

Our Local Guide:
Forest Gate

Vansittart Road, 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.
