Beyond its pretty screening hedge, chequerboard pathway and poppy red front door, this chic, charming and characterful Victorian terraced house is a fine blend of subtle tones, warm timber and period features with recently renewed décor over smooth, re-plastered and skimmed walls and ceilings.

Gorgeous parquet floors run through the ground floor living areas from where the entrance hall gives way to a pair of reception rooms. Sliding panelled doors with bespoke glazing are an auspicious opening to the cosy living room, where the original coving and ceiling rose overhead are met with a cast iron fireplace and bespoke plantation blinds to the front bay. In the dining room, the breezy Scandi style works perfectly with a second cast iron fireplace and black'n'white mosaic tiled hearth. From here a door leads to a useful storage cellar.

Beyond the dining room the side return has been cleverly converted into a charming lean-to with a timber decked floor and translucent glazed ceiling. It makes a lovely route through to the garden and is used as an inspired, out-of-the-way place for coats and shoes among hanging plants and industrial cable pendants.

The kitchen also leads off the dining room and is fitted in the style of a contemporary urban cottage. Woodblock countertops sit on plenty of deep pull-out drawer cupboards with smart cup handles, paired with a wide enamel sink and bespoke timber shelves. There are spaces for a washing machine, stove, dishwasher and tall fridge freezer.

The staircase runs up the middle of the house between the two living rooms, with stripped and restored original timber boards leading to the first floor landing where engineered oak floors take over.

Both bedrooms feature bespoke joinery: the front has built-in wardrobes to each alcove either side of a chimney breast painted in teal; the rear has floating alcove shelves and low level cupboards.

In the bathroom, a wonderful 55-inch (1.4m) wide bespoke vanity unit has twin wash basins set into a Tiger Marble countertop with masses of storage below and a vast mirror above that adds to the sense of space and light. The white enamel tub has panelling to match the vanity along with a glazed screen, thermostatic Victorian-style rainfall shower rose, and complementing telephone mixer. Completing the picture are white floor mosaics met with white metro wall tiles.

The loft already has a skylight, floor and electricity installed, and, subject to the necessary consent, has potential for extra accommodation in line with the many successful examples in the area.

Outside, the delightful west-facing rear garden of almost 30ft was completely redesigned by professional gardeners in 2019 with a lovely patio of sandstone paving slabs leading onto a lawn. A pair of large railway sleeper planters and a narrower timber bed house a wide variety of plants including an olive tree, two large Ceanothus Concha (for bright purple blossoms in spring), and a collection of honeysuckle, clematis and oriental lilies. At the end, the large shed has big windows and is currently used as a workshop, while a small second terrace is the perfect place for a morning coffee in the sun, which covers more of the garden as the day progresses.

Cobden Road runs north-south between the High Road and Wanstead Flats, just beneath the Ferndale neighbourhood and perfect for enjoying Leytonstone's scene.

To Be Consumed wine bar and the Theatre of Wine shop are just around the corner, with the lovely Leytonstone Tavern less than five minutes' walk away on Harrow Road. Wander up the High Road and you'll find many more local favourites including The Red Lion, The Birds and The North Star pubs, Wild Goose Bakery and Perky Blenders coffee shop, or take in the artisanal scene in the Winchelsea Road railway arches for venues like Arch Rivals, The Wanstead Tap, and Burgess & Hall.

For transport, Leytonstone High Road Overground station is within 5 minutes' walk and has a handy connection to the Victoria Line at Blackhorse Road. Or head further up the High Road to Leytonstone tube, about 10 minutes' walk, for the Central Line direct into the City and West End along with a swift change at Stratford to the Jubilee Line for Canary Wharf, South Bank and Westminster.

Within 5 minutes' walk the excellent Better Leisure Centre has a gym, pool, badminton courts and fitness studios to keep you fit and healthy. And finally, the house is just a few minutes' stroll from the entrance to Wanstead Flats, one of the most beautiful areas of open space in East London. A wonderful place to explore nature, exercise or simply hang out, this abundance of nature is treasured by local residents who feel privileged to have it so close.
