This elegant one bedroom apartment in the prestigious Grade II listed James Hilton House has communal parking and landscaped gardens, and is close to the shops, cafes, and restaurants along George Lane. It’s also five minutes from the extensive green space of Leyton Flats, and just a ten minute walk from Snaresbrook tube station.


You’d approach your apartment by climbing the six stone steps up to the grand entrance with its portico and Doric columns. Once inside there’s a communal hallway, and your own front door leads to a central hallway with a walk-in cupboard and doors to the living room, and a smaller back hall that leads to the kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom.

The spacious living room has period features including two large sash windows, ceiling cornicing, and a cast-iron fireplace. There’s plenty of space for a large sofa and chairs, and the room has a lovely view out towards the grass frontage and large houses along The Drive opposite. The kitchen has a large sash window with leafy garden views, space for a dining table, and is fitted with smart gloss black wall and floor cabinets, a beautiful wood worktop, e metro-tiled splashback, and integrated and freestanding appliances.

The double bedroom also has garden views, and ample space for a large double bed, wardrobes, and bedroom furniture. The shower room opposite is mainly tiled, with a large walk-in shower and a contemporary suite.
The property has communal off-street parking to the front, and a beautifully maintained communal garden to the rear. This is mainly lawned, criss-crossed by paths, and with a border of fences, hedges, and mature trees providing privacy.

James Hilton House is a Georgian period property converted into apartments. It has generous proportions including high ceilings and large sash windows. Set back from Woodford Road opposite The Drive, one of the most prestigious addresses in the area, and home to several large, detached houses fronted by a swathe of green open space.


- You’re ideally located between central South Woodford (George Lane) and Wanstead. Both are about a ten minute walk, giving you plenty of shopping, entertainment, and transport options.
- George Lane has an appealing mix of independent shops, cafes, and restaurants, high street stores, and an Odeon cinema, whilst Wanstead High Street has a distinctly villagey feel.
- Both Snaresbrook station (10 minutes) and South Woodford station (12m) are on the Central Line. Snaresbrook is further south, with faster journey times to Stratford (7 minutes), the City (Liverpool Street 17m), and the West End (Oxford Circus 20m).
- There are plenty of green spaces nearby. Leyton Flats is a five minute walk. From here you can follow pedestrian and cycle trails up into Epping Forest, which stretches north for seven miles.

a word from the expert...

"South Woodford was home for the first 25 years of my life. As I get older, I realise how lucky I am to have grown up here, an area with such fantastic schools, amenities and green space. George Lane is the main hub, where you’ll find the Central line station, as well as a great selection of supermarkets — M&S, Sainsburys, Waitrose and a Co-op. On top of this, is a fantastic choice of bars, pubs and restaurants, as well as an Odeon Cinema, library and gym. You really do have everything on your doorstep. Personal favourites for food include the Japanese restaurant Sakura, and the award-winning Indian Grand Trunk Road. South Woodford boasts a great stock of Victorian/ Edwardian family homes, as well as newer purpose-built blocks of flats and conversions, so attracts families and young professionals. It has great transport connections to the City and Canary Wharf, and with Epping Forest on your doorstep, it’s got the perfect balance of everything you need. My favourite local spots for walking are the Hollow Ponds, and the tucked away Elmhurst Gardens, with its two tennis courts. The nearby Woodford Dog Park is also a favourite, where both dog and owner meet up with their regular pals! All round, it’s a great place to call home." BEN CHARLETON E18 SENIOR ADVISOR

Our Local Guide:
South Woodford

Woodford Road, South Woodford — Stow Brothers

Beautiful property, great amenities, green space, a wonderful sense of community and excellent transport links, honestly, what’s not to love about South Woodford?

No wonder it’s become such a popular area for families looking to make their money go a little further. For a start, there’s a Marks and Spencer and Waitrose on the vibrant high street, as well as independent stores and eateries. It has incredibly easy access to the City and West End (18 mins to Liverpool St or 27 mins Oxford Circus on the Central line), and with Epping Forest a stone’s throw in the other direction, residents really do feel like they’ve got the best of both worlds. 

No wonder it’s such a happy community. Luckily they’re a friendly, inclusive bunch too, pleased to welcome both new residents and visitors alike.
