Your wonderful rear garden is superbly diverse and uniquely generous. 200 feet in length and bursting with life, here you'll find a mix of patio, lawn, kitchen beds, playground, thriving foliage, a charming dell and mature greenery. A rare treat indeed for a London home.


You'll be stretching out in over 2000 square feet of living space, artfully blended between the classic and contemporary. Your large front lounge is home to the high ceilings of the period, ornate original cornicing and complementary ceiling rose, plus a striking pewter hearth. Reception two is finished in sage green up to the picture rail, with handsomely tiled hearth. Another 150 square feet of sociable space, you may want to consider connecting your lounges for an entirely open plan ground floor.

Double doors under a transom window lead through to your extended kitchen/diner, a modern masterpiece with pristine oversized cream tiling underfoot and a trio of skylights overhead. Together with the dual aspect and a rear wall of bi folding patio doors, it's all bursting with natural light wonderfully naturally bright space. The kitchen area's subtly segmented by a timber topped breakfast bar and decked out with sleek glossy cabinets, with metro tiled splashbacks and chrome fittings. A handy utility space and extra shower room completes he ground floor.

Upstairs now and your principal bedroom to the front is a bright and pristine 200 square feet, with those lovely high ceilings, blonde hardwood underfoot and lashings of natural light. Two more double bedrooms, similarly bright and stylish, complete the first floor sleeping arrangements, and your family bathroom's a smart designer affair with tub and dedicated shower cubicle. Upstairs again and your loft conversion's home to two more large double bedrooms (no boxrooms here) and a stylish skylit shower room.

Outside and, as noted, it's just a third of a mile on foot to Leytonstone tube and the Central line, for direct fourteen minute runs to Liverpool Street and a door to door City commute of around twenty minutes. Heading to the West End? Tottenham Court Road is just nine minutes further. Staying local? Leytonstone High Road is just past the station, around a half mile on foot, for a wide range of shops, cafes and bars. The stately Red Lion Public House, Hotel & Ballroom is well worth a visit, with classic architecture and a delicious menu.


- You'll be pleased to find five 'Outstanding' primary schools all less than a mile away from your new front door. There's a further dozen mix of primary/secondaries, rated 'Good' and just as close.
- Kerbside appeal is impressive, with that lovely Victorian frontage, huge driveway and side access. There's also a cellar for handy extra storage.
- Nature's never far away here, with the vast open green and blue natural space of Epping Forest and Hollow Ponds just a fifteen minute stroll. Hire a row boat and explore the waterways, or take in the sunset with a drink at the Sir Alfred Hitchcock Hotel.

a word from the owner...

This house has been in the family for four generations and is a much loved family home, and we will miss it. We have felt so lucky to have such an incredibly large garden and our children have been able to enjoy the raised vegetable beds throughout the seasons as well as the bark chipped play area underneath the sycamore tree. We love that the house works so well throughout the seasons: The main reception room gets beautiful morning sun, the second reception room is the perfect snug and little library in The dark winter months, and the kitchen bifolds leading to the patio allow us to integrate indoor and outdoor living in the summer. Having ample office space plus guest bedrooms as well as having ample storage in the attic space, cellar and utility room has always been very useful for us as a growing family. We wouldn't have lived anywhere else - we have reaped the benefit of having hollow ponds and woodland in such close proximity, and having the high street, community groups and the central line within a few minutes walk as well as excellent school options has made this our perfect place to live in London.

Our Local Guide:

Wallwood 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.
