2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, House, Freehold

Newly refurbished in elegant fashion by a developer with an established local legacy of design-led Victorian renovations this completely remodelled two-bedroom house overlooks the open green spaces of Wanstead Flats and is surrounded by independent shops, pubs and eateries. And with three stations - Leytonstone High Road, Wanstead Park (both Overground) and Forest Gate (TFL Rail/future Crossrail) - all within a 15-minute walk, you can enjoy easy travel in and around London.

Good-looking inside and out, the house features an attractive brick exterior, strikingly complemented by anthracite-framed windows and a bay with white stone sills. A cobbled front patio stops at a three-panelled front door painted in a heritage green shade, finished with brass door furniture and a gilded house number to the glazing.

Step inside a welcoming hallway with soft white walls, pale stone paintwork and beautiful herringbone parquet wood flooring - a palette that flows throughout the ground floor. Other ubiquitous design details range from new flat matt white sockets and switches, radiators, and luxe Kramer handles in rich gold by Dowsing & Reynolds to new four-panelled internal doors.

On your left is a calm and relaxing living room lit by the generous bay window and a pendant light fitting. Two good-sized alcoves could be used for either freestanding or fitted storage. Continue down the hall to a handy utility with bespoke plywood wall-mounted cupboard and a white composite worktop, plus space and plumbing for an appliance.

Next door is the stunning family bathroom. The fresh, stylish scheme pairs grey terrazzo floor tiles and monochrome lily pad hexagon wall tiles with matte black details and tactile gold Crosswater taps and fittings. The full-sized bath has a black-framed folding screen and a rainforest shower with handheld attachment overhead. Beneath the vanity basin is a practical shelf, with more storage provided by a mirrored wall cabinet and bespoke plywood shelf. There's also a heated towel rail and wall-hung loo.

Beyond lies a kitchen and dining space flooded with light from two windows and French garden doors, white recessed downlights and black fixed spotlights to the ceiling. Matt dusky blue cabinets and natural ply-fronted wall units create a contemporary look, with black bar handles, white composite worktops and large format grey tiles to the splashback completing the design-led scheme. There's a black 1.5 bowl undermounted sink, while integrated appliances include a Zanussi electric oven, Hotpoint induction hob with Hoover overhead extractor, and a concealed fridge-freezer.

Back in the hallway, a soft neutral looped carpet leads upstairs and continues in the bedrooms. The master runs along the entire frontage of the house and enjoys lush green views over Wanstead Flats through two good-sized windows. It's completed by two radiators, a pendant light fitting, and alcoves for freestanding or fitted wardrobes.

A second bedroom with roomy bespoke built-in storage has a similarly restful feel and overlooks the garden.

Outside, the 29ft south-facing garden features a stone patio that's perfect for entertaining and leads to a well-maintained grassy lawn enclosed by new timber fencing. The side courtyard is ideal for storage or planters, and there's also an outdoor tap.


Set between Leytonstone and Forest Gate, Harrow Road offers the best of both neighbourhoods. Enjoy exploring the area's thriving food and drink scene, whether it's craft beer and cocktails at Arch Rivals on Winchelsea Road, wine at Burgess & Hall Wines, amazing bakes at Wild Goose Bakery or a coffee and Aussie breakfast at Patch Café, just a short stroll away in Cann Hall Park.

The Holly Tree, Wanstead Tap and Forest Tavern are lively and friendly local pubs, as is The Rookwood Village pub with its stylish interior, deck, and electronic darts. Singburi and Mora on the High Road are well-loved for their respective Thai and Italian cuisine.

Alternatively, pick up lunch from Yard Sale Pizza to fuel a ramble around Jubilee Pond and Wanstead Flats - wonderful, wild outdoor spaces whatever the season. With the Olympic Park, canals, and Hackney Marshes a short distance away, there's plenty to explore in the great outdoors.

Leytonstone High Road, Wanstead Park, and Forest Gate Overground stations can be reached by foot in around 15-minutes, with Forest Gate set to be a stop on the new Crossrail link, slashing journey times to Canary Wharf (12 mins), Bond Street (19 mins) and Heathrow Airport (47 mins).

Ofsted-rated 'Outstanding' local schools include Colegrave Primary, Davies Lane Primary, and Forest Gate Community School. The popular Jenny Hammond Primary School is just a few minutes' walk away and is rated 'Good' by Ofsted. You'll also find a couple of nurseries nearby.
