3 Bedroom House

Stylish three-bedroom Victorian terrace

Contemporary and traditional character

Fantastic and extended dining kitchen

Beautiful use of old and new materials

Cleverly remodelled and repurposed spaces

Renovated with imagination and panache

Smart and low-maintenance 29ft garden

Column radiators and underfloor heating

With an inspired use of contemporary materials alongside plenty of period character, and with some clever remodelling and extending, this three-bedroom Victorian terraced house has a number of stylish highlights.

Particularly noteworthy are replacement timber sashes with double glazed panes; custom-made plantation blinds to all the front windows; bespoke built-in Sharps wardrobes to the front and middle bedrooms; and a pair of Nest heating systems - one for the school-style column radiators that are present throughout the house, and one for the underfloor heating in the dining kitchen.

The entrance hall has a beautiful chequerboard tiled floor that is reminiscent of the outdoor pathways to Victorian houses, but that works equally as well indoors - in fact it's quite an inspired move.

The bay-fronted, elegant living room has walls in opulent navy below a white ceiling with original plaster rose and cornice. A fully working cast iron fireplace with a swept chimney is perfect for warming up the coming winter months in front of an open fire, and is flanked by custom-made cupboards and shelves to both alcoves.

The original dining room has been cleverly remodelled to reflect contemporary lifestyles. About half has been opened up and incorporated into the extended dining kitchen, with the remainder divided between a downstairs cloakroom/wc and a useful utility room with sink, cupboards and connections for a washing machine and dryer.

Perhaps the piece de resistance of the house - and certainly the centerpiece - is the fantastic dining kitchen at the end of the ground floor. Extended into the side return beneath a trio of electric skylights with rain sensors, this arresting space for a modern family is almost 350sq ft alone, with the entire back wall opening out to the garden through a bank of bi-folding doors. The kitchen section occupies part of the original dining room and is fitted with a sleek range of white gloss units from British manufacturer Moore's, with white silestone countertops and under-mounted stainless steel sink with instant hot water mixer. High-quality integrated appliances include Siemens five-ring induction hob, dishwasher and tall fridge freezer along with twin Neff eye-level ovens with Bake-off style retractable doors. A chunky iron joist runs overhead for a dash of industrial style, and the entire space has underfloor heating on its own Nest zone beneath porcelain tiles.

Once you're on the first floor it becomes luxuriously snug underfoot with deep and plush carpets covering the landing and all the bedrooms. Above the accommodation through a hatch in the ceiling, the roof space provides ample opportunity for an extra bedroom or home workspace in line with many other local examples, subject of course to the necessary consents.

The three double bedrooms are arranged as the primary bedroom across the entire front with a cast iron fireplace; then the second immediately behind and the third on the half landing at the back of the house, both overlooking the garden.

In the bathroom that imaginative use of tiles is back, this time with a terrazzo floor recalling Victorian porchways and entrance halls. White fittings include a bath with thermostatic shower and folding glass screen; a wash basin set into a wide vanity unit with a demisting mirror above; and a close coupled wc. Metro wall tiles form the backdrop, with chromed taps and a heated towel warmer the finishing touches.

Heading outside, the rear garden faces east and extends to 29ft. More ingenious materials include a lawn of astroturf that retains the look and feel of a Victorian garden, but with none of the maintenance. It sits between a pair of paved terraces and is bordered by plants on either side, with a full-width raised planter hugging the timber fence at the end.

Colworth Road is set in Upper Leytonstone, one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in E11 and the perfect place to socialise, enjoy nature, and commute.

Take a wander in the great outdoors at Epping Forest and Hollow Ponds (a little over 10 minutes walk), or head to the excellent and ever-evolving café and bar scene on the High Road whose most interesting stretch is around 8 minutes' stroll and hosts, among others, Wild Goose Bakery, Perky Blenders coffee shop and three hugely popular pubs: The Red Lion, The Birds and, with its authentic Thai cooking, The North Star.

Along with a collection of nearby nurseries and well-reviewed schools that find favour with families (Leytonstone Comprehensive; Gwynn Jones Primary; Connaught for Girls; Norlington for Boys), the location is popular with doctors and medical staff - who can walk to work at Whipps Cross Hospital - as well as professionals and creatives for whom the Central Line at Leytonstone makes light work of reaching the City, West End and, via a swift change at Stratford, Canary Wharf.
