A bright and breezy atmosphere fills the air at this three bedroom 1930s house on the highly regarded Nightingale Estate, named after the farm it replaced and which is remembered through the excellent local pub, Nightingale on the Green.

The house has received a number of improvements including a newly tiled roof and remodelled bathroom in 2015; a redesigned kitchen in 2019; replacement double glazed windows in the style of the originals, and gas fired central heating.

Unfolding over two floors and 960sq ft, the classic layout has been largely retained but with contemporary flourishes that deliver a modern family home that honours its heritage.

Upon entering you are greeted with an uninterrupted sightline from the front door to the back garden, and the wide entrance hall has timber panelling and open balustrades to the staircase along with Amtico flooring in a modern parquet.

At the front, the living room has a large bay with tulip stained glass fanlights above the casement windows, while the dining room behind it has an original Deco tiled fireplace and modern patio doors that allow the light to flood in through floor-to-ceiling glass.

The kitchen has been redesigned in a way that opens up the centre and the end of the room to give it streamlined mid-century overtones. Newly fitted in 2019 with cabinets from Magnet, the slate grey wall and base units are paired with worktops and open shelves in oak veneer, offset with white rhombus tiles from Equipe Ceramicas and grouting to match the cupboards. The overall effect and attention to detail is fresh, sleek and modern with some added punch from integrated Bosch oven, hob and microwave in black along with a concealed washing machine, dishwasher and tall fridge freezer.

Upstairs, the main bedroom has a large bay above the living room and was fitted with custom made wardrobes in oak veneer by a local carpenter in 2016. The second bedroom, also a double, looks out over the garden, while the third makes the perfect child's room or home office.

The original bathroom and separate loo have been combined into a single larger and brighter space, with white fittings from Victoria Plumb including a double-ended tub, wide vanity basin and standalone glazed shower cubicle, paired with white metro wall tiles and chrome accessories.

Up in the roof, the loft is boarded and sports a pair of Velux skylights. With the necessary consents these spaces naturally convert into an extra characterful bedroom, or a whole new suite at the top of the house.

Outside, the front garden is brick paved and provides useful off-street parking for up to two cars. The rear garden extends to almost 70ft, with a large patio across the full width of the house stepping onto a lawn. The southerly aspect is overlooked by a green wall of plentiful trees at the far end.

The broad avenues of the Nightingale Estate are among the favourite streets in the neighbourhood, not least because of their proximity to Wanstead Village which is around 7 mins walk. Here you'll find a thriving scene to satisfy your culinary, retail and social desires, assuming, of course, that you make it past Gail's Bakery without stopping off for baked treats and coffee!

If you do, why not try some of the favourite places of the owners of the house including Otto for Mediterranean food, The Cuckfield pub with its shabby chic vintage vibe, Luppolo for pizza and craft beers, Le Marmiton for going French, or The Lane for a really good Indian. Alongside the many independent businesses are household names like M&S Food, Tesco, Co-Op and Boots, while the monthly farmers market is an artisans paradise.

Both Wanstead and Snaresbrook tube stations are about half a mile away, taking you straight into the City and West End, as well as Stratford for a quick change to the DLR for Canary Wharf, and major retail therapy at Westfield.

Within a one mile radius are no less than nine primary and secondary schools with a good or outstanding rating from Ofsted, with Wanstead Church School around ten minutes' walk.

Christ Church Green and Memorial Green in the centre of the village are great for picnics with friends, or take long and lazy woodland walks through nearby Wanstead Flats and Epping Forest.
