3 Bedrooms, 2 Receptions, 1 Bathroom, House, Freehold

You get a feeling you're in for a treat when standing outside this three-bedroom Victorian house where custom-made plantation blinds across all the front windows hint at the stylish and design-conscious interior.

Open the front door and, unusually, you see right through to the rear garden because the stairs run up the middle of the house, which allows a completely straight hall.

Feeding the street, the bay-fronted living room is a comfy place to sit where a cast iron fireplace with burgundy tiles acts as the focal point, flanked on either side by custom-made alcove cabinets.

Running across the full width of the house at the back, the dining room has been opened up to the kitchen by removing the internal wall to the rear addition. This creates a large and sociable L-shaped space that gives both rooms clear definition while introducing interplay.

The kitchen was refitted in 2018 in a modern shaker style from Magnet with charcoal grey cupboards, woodblock worktops and metro tiled splashbacks in white marble. Integrated appliances include a tall fridge/freezer and stainless steel AEG electric oven, gas hob and overhead extractor. A deep Belfast sink sits below a window overlooking the garden, while a clever surprise comes from a standalone unit where pulling the drawer reveals a retractable woodblock breakfast bar.

Upstairs, the first floor has two double bedrooms - one across the full width of the house to the front, the other overlooking the garden to the rear - along with a spacious bathroom that blends Victorian, Art Deco and contemporary elements including a roll-top bath, wide pedestal basin, standalone shower, black metro wall tiles and chequerboard tiled floor.

A proper staircase from the landing leads to a superb main bedroom converted from the loft, with loads of built in storage and plenty of light from dormer and Velux windows.

The 36ft rear garden faces south and has a curved patio paved next to the house that leads onto a lawn. Larch lap fencing runs along both sides and ends in a tall screen of trees where a raised deck provides an extra seating area and grilling space.

There's no shortage of places to hang out nearby and your closest locals include To Be Consumed wine bar and a clutch of great pubs: Northcote Arms, Leytonstone Tavern, Heathcote & Star and The Red Lion.

But there's plenty more besides and Southwell Grove Road's location makes it perfect for exploring not only Leytonstone, but also the delightful Francis Road and the emerging artisanal scene in the railway arches on Winchelsea Road.

Transport-wise, Leytonstone High Road Overground is just five minutes' walk and has a swift connection to the Victoria Line at Blackhorse Road, while Leytonstone tube (Central Line) is about 12 minutes on foot. You'll also find plenty of buses in the neighbourhood including a night route that stops at the of the street.
