2 Bedroom

1 Bath

This bright and spacious two-bedroom apartment is situated on the second floor of an attractive low-rise development, close to the edge of Epping Forest’s Eagle Pond - a fantastically peaceful spot. Highlights include the spotless decor, separate kitchen and reception, west-facing balcony and private parking space. It’s also on the market chain-free, with a share of the freehold and a lovely long lease.

As well as all that sprawling nature, Wanstead’s High Street is within easy reach, with its much-loved pubs, restaurants and stores, as is Snaresbrook station, which offers quick access to the city via the Central line.


With over 791 square feet of internal space, this is a fantastic home, just ready for you to move into and enjoy the smart finish throughout. Due to its neutral decor and generous windows, the reception room has a bright and brilliant feel. There’s plenty of room for working or relaxing, and the west-facing balcony will be a fantastic extension of the home. The separate kitchen is smart and modern with plentiful units.

As for the bedrooms, they’re both doubles with in-built storage and soft carpeting, while the bathroom is a good-size too, with modern fittings, floor to ceiling tiles and an over-tub shower, and there’s also a separate WC.

Outside, the village-esque hub of Wanstead is just moments. With everything from horse riding, farmer’s markets, charming pubs and lush greenery on your doorstep, it’s easy to forget that you're only about 17 minutes away from the city on the tube. Your nearest station is Snaresbrook, which is a five minute walk away, putting you less than half and hour away door to door if you time it correctly.

If you want to stay local, though, Gail’s Bakery will always be a winner on work from home days, but for a treat, book in for the excellent Provender Restaurant. Takeaway? Tiffin Tin is fantastically popular throughout the whole area. Your new local? How about the converted 19th century coaching inn The Cuckfield, which is a 10 minute stroll away. The Duke Wanstead is another great option too.

You also have easy access to South Woodford, where you have even more amenities, including Marks & Spencer, Waitrose and an impressive Art Deco Odeon cinema. Leyton and Walthamstow are both close to hand too.


- Fancy a tipple with a view? The Sir Alfred Hitchcock Hotel - a nod to the area’s renowned export, is 18 minute stroll over Hollow Ponds and the perfect place to to watch the sun go down.
-Drivers will be happy to know that the North Circular is conveniently located, but not close enough to impact on all that peace and quiet.
- There are excellent sport facilities available at the nearby Sylvestrian Centre, which is located within independent school Forest School but accessible by the public via membership.

a word from the owner...

"Gowan Lea was built in the 1970's and benefits from space design that modern apartment blocks are not afforded. There is plenty of communal green space, own secure garage, as well as being bigger than modern apartments. Although in need of a refresh, Gowan Lea represents a wonderful property in a well located area."

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.
