3 Bedrooms, 1 Reception, 1 Bathroom, House, Freehold

This newly refurbished, classic 1930s terraced house on Leyton's continuously popular Barclay Estate has been extended and remodelled on the ground floor to deliver a wonderfully open plan and contemporary environment, and an overall interior floorspace of almost 950sq ft.

You get an immediate sense that something is different as soon as you cross the threshold and see right through to the back of the house, with light coming in from the kitchen at the rear and full-height sidelights to the left and right of the front door.

The original wall between the front living room and entrance hall has been retained, but the closing of the doorway and removal of the remaining ground floor walls means the kitchen, dining room and living room are now one large, flowing and extremely sociable space, with a wide splay bay to the front and an exposed brick fireplace with tiled hearth.

Sleek glossy white units in the kitchen add to the breezy feel and include a curved peninsular unit in a stylish and subtle nod to the 1930s. These are paired with white corian worktops, stainless steel oven, gas hob and extractor, a concealed dishwasher and white metro wall tiles.

A newer, full-width conservatory acts as the bridge between the original layout and the rear garden, and provides a useful extra room that could happily perform any number of roles: a telly den, a home office, or perhaps a place for children to play indoors while keeping the main living space clear.

Upstairs you'll find three bedrooms - two doubles and a single - along with the family bathroom where a large window draws in lots of light. The white suite is complemented with a glass shower screen, chrome taps and heated towel rail, white metro wall tiles and lovely monochrome floor tiles with a Moorish motif. All the rooms up here retain their original panelled doors.

Outside, the rear garden is just over 50ft and has a full-width patio adjacent to the back of the house, stepping down into a heavily planted area of mature shrubs that provide a secluded and verdant setting.

The house has replacement double glazed casement windows in a style to match the originals along with gas fired central heating, oak engineered floors to the living areas and carpets to the stairs, landing and bedrooms.

A destination location for families with Barclay Primary School, Gwynn Jones Primary School and Leyton Sixth Form College all close by, the Barclay Estate is also popular with doctors for its position so close to Whipps Cross Hospital. And for nature lovers of every persuasion, Hollow Pond, Leyton Flats and Epping Forest are all around the corner.

Leyton Midland Road Overground station is less than 15 minutes' walk and links Barking to Gospel Oak with a handy link to the Victoria Line just two stops away at Blackhorse Road; local coffee favourite Perky Blenders has a shop close to the station as a perfect morning stop-off up before the commute.

The middle of Leytonstone is less than a mile away and has a number of great local places to hang out include The Red Lion, The Birds and The North Star pubs, all of which do a great line in beers as well as good food. Leytonstone's tube station is on the Central Line with trains running direct to the City and West End, as well as to Stratford (2 stops) for shopping at Westfield and a quick change to the DLR for Canary Wharf.
