Close to Francis Road

This exceptional, beautifully renovated three-bedroom Victorian house has a wonderful traditional-meets-contemporary feel. Just moments from the thriving Francis Road, it includes a light-filled top floor primary suite, a stylish extended kitchen and a mature landscaped south-facing garden.

Over the past few years, the current owners have finished the property to a high standard. This included installing high-quality double-glazed timber box sashes with weights and pulleys. These have been treated with Aquatex Weatherseal system microporous paint for a protective, long-lasting finish.

In addition, the original floorboards have been painstakingly sanded and oiled, and the interior doors have been replaced with four-panelled doors with antique brass beehive handles. The house has also been decorated in carefully chosen Farrow & Ball shades to highlight period features such as high coved ceilings and original fireplaces, emphasising the natural light filling every room.

Set behind a low, white-painted wall with a box hedge and cast-iron gate, the house has a traditional brickwork exterior, with original stone lintels and columns to the handsome canted bay window. A chequerboard tiled path leads to a recessed four-panel front door with a numbered transom window and brass furniture, which has been painted in Little Greene’s ‘Mid Azure Green’.

In the hallway, Farrow & Ball ‘Downpipe’ walls create an atmospheric welcome, while the paler shades throughout echo the iconic architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s idea of walking into lighter spaces from darker ones. The restored original floorboards flow from the hallway into the double reception room on your right.

Flooded with light from the front bay and rear sash window, and linked by a soaring arch, the ‘Slipper Satin’ living area and the ‘Shaded White’ dining, study or play area feel bright, spacious and warm, with column-style radiators at both ends. Immaculate period details include a coved ceiling with a complementing rose and a cast-iron fireplace with a stunning Art Nouveau tiled hearth. Meanwhile, bespoke cupboards and floating shelves line the alcoves.

The kitchen lies beyond. Here, a part-glazed door on your left leads to a cellar spanning the footprint of the house. To the right, double pocket doors reveal a fantastic walk-in pantry. Beside this is a separate laundry cupboard with space and plumbing for a stacked washing machine and tumble drier.

The current owner works with food for a living, and it shows here; the kitchen has been designed with a keen cook in mind. ‘Strong White’ walls and matte white slab-front cabinetry with Danish Furnipart straight-edge brass handles pair with a polished Silestone Eternal Statuario worktop.

This high scratch, stain, and impact-resistant surface contrasts beautifully with the bottle green crackle glazed herringbone metro tiles to the splashback. Minimalist ceiling spots and a trio of factory-style pendants illuminate above, while honey oak-toned Amtico Spacia herringbone flooring, warmed by water-based underfloor heating, runs underfoot.

Beyond, wide crittal-style double-glazed aluminium French doors lead out to the garden. Two side windows cast more sun over a built-in window seat in the dining area and the double-bowl stainless steel sink with a Crosswater dual control flexi-spray tap and a separate Insinkerator boiling water tap.

Appliances include a Bosch integrated dishwasher, a Neff five-ring gas hob and steel extractor hood and a pair of Miele integrated ovens. There’s also space for an American-style fridge-freezer.

Heading upstairs, the second double bedroom, painted in ‘James White’, spans the entire width of the front. Light spills in from the two tall timber sash windows, which have column-style radiators beneath, while wall-mounted bedside lamps and a large central pendant fitting provide additional lighting in the evenings. You’ll also discover a show-stopping cast-iron fireplace with bespoke integrated storage to the alcoves, including a shaker-style double wardrobe, floating shelves and a chest of drawers.

Beyond is the third double bedroom, with views through a sash window over the garden courtyard. Decorated in ‘Dimity’ – a subtle blush – by Farrow & Ball, it features a column-style radiator, pendant light, roomy built-in wardrobe and another lovely cast-iron fireplace.

In the family bathroom to the rear, a luxurious roll-top claw-foot bath with Burlington London traditional telephone taps has pride of place beneath a half-frosted sash window. There’s also a Burlington low-level loo and pedestal basin with chrome stand and ceramic lever taps, plus a matching traditional heated towel rail.

In one corner, you’ll find a bespoke cabinet housing the boiler, while in the other, the extra-large walk-in shower has both rainfall and handheld shower attachments, a Majestic Rio frameless glass screen and Fired Earth Retro Metro Marble Arch crackle glazed tiles to the walls. The ‘Pigeon’ paintwork works well with other thoughtful design details such as globe pendant lights and a toiletry niche and mirror above the basin area.

Back on the landing, a second staircase leads to the spacious double-aspect master bedroom in the converted loft, carpeted in a soft grey and decorated in ‘School House White’.

To the front, two extra-large Velux windows with integrated Duo blinds let in diffused light during the day yet provide blackout at night. At the same time, a double-height anthracite aluminium toughened glass window offers a view of the garden below and the Olympic Park beyond. Ceiling spotlights, a stylish column-style radiator, and integrated doors hiding useful eaves storage with inbuilt lighting complete the space.

Continue into a dressing area with inbuilt drawers and rails on both sides, lit from above by a skylight, before entering the en suite bathroom through a pocket door. An anthracite aluminium window lights the space, while white herringbone metro tiles and hexagon penny mosaics line the walls and floor, respectively.

While gold Crosswater tapware adds a touch of luxe to the black-framed walk-in shower with rainfall showerhead and handheld attachment, a bespoke Tikamoon Industriel solid mango wood and metal vanity with Imex Liberty countertop basin adds wow-factor. A heated towel rail and a back-to-wall built-in loo finish the suite.

Inspired by visits to the south of France, the south-facing garden enjoys the sun all day long. The winding Cotswold buff stone chipping path curves around a grassy lawn with Everedge Cor-Ten steel edging, which weathers attractively. This leads towards a peaceful dining area at the back, with raised beds forming banquette-style seating.

Two mature olive trees provide shade, while plants such as peonies, hydrangeas, Perovskia Little Spire (Russian sage), Astrantia, lavender and many different herbs fill the borders. In addition, several varieties of grass combined with alliums create a clever natural division between the lawn and seating area. The well-thought-out planting scheme also includes plenty of evergreen plants to ensure the garden looks lush all year round.

A NOTE FROM THE OWNERS

‘This was our first home, and we’ve poured our hearts into making it into a light and airy space that flows well, works effortlessly, and is easy and enjoyable to live in. We love the sash windows, the Victorian features, and the sightline that goes all the way through the ground floor of the house. You can sit in the living room and look through to the garden and the gently swaying olive trees.

‘We’ve particularly enjoyed al fresco dining and drinks in the garden amongst the greenery or sitting at the kitchen dining table with the doors flung open. The master suite is a real retreat and has a feeling of tranquillity and calmness. In the summer, the cool breeze flows through the extra-large windows, and in the winter, it's a really cosy space. We also have lovely neighbours on either side and behind the house, and the whole street has a great community feel.’

IN THE AREA

Balmoral Road is just under ten minutes' walk from Leyton Tube on the Central line, while the Overground at Leyton Midland Road is only a few more minutes away. For journeys further afield, Stratford International and Walthamstow Central are within easy reach. There's a range of good schools and academies nearby, with Newport Primary and Willow Brook Primary both rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted.

Just a couple of streets away, Francis Road offers a wonderful collection of delis, coffee spots, and independent shops. Try Yardarm for wine, deli goods and small plates; Marmelo for fantastic bread and delicious dining; Venner for gifts; Pause for yoga; and Phlox for books and a relaxing coffee.

There's a vibrant local community with several excellent pubs, including the Coach & Horses (for roasts and a sunny beer garden), Leyton Technical and Heathcote & Star, along with Filly Brook and Solvay Society Gravity Well Brewing. The current owners also recommend Patchworks on Church Road - a new all-in-one café, bar, pop-up restaurant and art gallery - and the 'dangerously' tasty toasties from Deeney's.

The location is also perfectly placed to enjoy the green spaces of the Olympic Park (just a fifteen-minute walk away), the canal at Hackney Wick, Wanstead Flats - where you can get fabulous Sunday roasts at The Holly Tree pub - and even Walthamstow Wetlands. Also on your doorstep, Coronation Gardens is a lovely place to go for a stroll, run, have a picnic or explore the maze, while Sidmouth Park on the other side of the High Street is great for kids.
