This delightful and unique duplex maisonette is converted from an end-of-terrace Victorian property and feels just like a little house with its private street entrance and two-storey floor plan.

Accentuated by the owner's personal furnishings and accessories, the interior design has a soft decor palette inspired by Swedish living, fusing mid-century and antique styles to provide a balanced and calming atmosphere. It's also a great place for working from home, with a number of suitable spaces and settings.

Improvements to note include natural loop pile carpet to the stairs and first floor, timber flooring throughout the ground floor, gas central heating with a new boiler in 2018, and UPVC double-glazed windows to match the original sashes.

Step over the threshold and into the hall where a fresh, crisp and white welcome awaits with natural light coming in through glass at either end. A staircase heads up to the bedroom and bathroom on the first floor, and has useful storage space below.

The airy living room has a square bay with four sets of windows bringing in plenty of natural light, lifted further by the bright white paintwork of the high ceiling and woodwork, with walls in Silver Cloud grey. It's an open and inviting room with a perfect dining spot by the window, and a comfortable space for either entertaining or for cosy evenings watching a movie.

Directly off the living room through a sociable open arch, the kitchen is fitted with wall and base units on opposite walls to retain a clear sightline to the garden. High-gloss white cupboard fronts are paired with slender handles in brushed steel and laminate countertops in a black granite finish. Integrated appliances include gas hob, electric oven and extractor hood in stainless steel, along with a concealed tall fridge freezer. The breakfast bar by the garden door is a lovely spot for morning coffee.

Upstairs, the bedroom is a good-size double with twin double-glazed windows. Painted in a warm and restful Pigeon Green from Farrow & Ball, the room is given an uncluttered sense of calm by a clever invisible wardrobe that sits flush in the wall and hangs over the stairs. It's an escape from the outside world, where integrated wall lights and naturalistic tones create a relaxing environment to retreat and read a book before bed.

The bright bathroom looks out over the garden and has fully tiled walls in crisp white ceramics with a brick mosaic deco strip in teal, azure and black, met with black floor tiles. The white suite includes a large corner bath with telephone mixer, pedal wash basin and close coupled wc.

Outside, the spacious south-facing garden receives the sun from 10am and is given a unique and interesting composition by the corner plot. A long flagstone patio provides plenty of space for an outdoor table and chairs, and has a handy spot where the shed and outdoor tap are tucked into a corner. The patio widens onto a pet-friendly and low-maintenance astroturf lawn, with newly replaced screening from high-quality, long-lasting and pressure-treated Witham Timber fencing, softened by a well-stocked bed of pretty plants including, among others, heather, helleborus, anemone, chrysanthemums, Tom Thumb and red robin.

At the front is an off-street parking space for one car and the street has permit parking, making it easy for visiting friends and family.

Just around the corner from two great neighbourhood watering holes - the Heathcote & Star pub and Fillybrook craft beer hall - the location of Cavendish Drive is equally suited for a wander into the bustle of High Road Leytonstone, or down to lovely Leyton Village on Francis Road. Between the two you'll find plenty of local favourites to explore including authentic Thai cooking at The North Star, locally-brewed coffee at Perky Blenders, remarkable wines at Yardarm and excellent pastries at both Wild Goose Bakery and Albert & Francis. The Leyton Midland Road railway arches are also beginning to transform with the Gravity Well Taproom - a bar and brewery - recently opened and only a short walk away.

Commuting is swift, with Leytonstone tube about 5-6 minutes' walk from where the Central Line whizzes into the City and West End, with a quick change at Stratford to the Jubilee line for Canary Wharf, the South Bank and Westminster.

Stratford is also home to some serious retail therapy at Westfield Stratford City, as well as the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park.

Meanwhile, Epping Forest is but a short tube, drive or cycle away for a quick London escape to over 2400 hectares of green open space and woodland.
