This lovely Victorian ground-floor maisonette is situated in the centre of the ever-popular Francis Road, with its vibrant community of restaurants, cafés and shops, and within easy walking distance of open green spaces. Leytonstone Tube, Leyton Midland Road and Leytonstone High Road stations are also nearby.

Bright and airy, with beautifully restored period details, the property features two bedrooms, a contemporary kitchen, a central living room with a huge sash window, and a private sun-trap garden.

A classic Victorian brickwork exterior, including stone lintels and decorative columns to the bay window and doorway arch, greets you upon arrival. Recently landscaped, the charming front garden includes beach pebbles, a timber planter and a new picket-style fence. The current owners tell us it's a great spot to sit on a sunny morning with a coffee while chatting with their friendly neighbours.

The part-glazed front door has been painted in a cheery aqua shade that picks out the timber window surrounds to the ground-floor bay. A transom window illuminates the white-painted hallway, along which runs characterful stripped and sanded wooden wall panelling. This wonderful period feature works well with the original floorboards, which start here and flow throughout the property.

Through a restored four-panelled door to your left, the front-facing primary double bedroom - or secondary living room - is a peaceful, sun-dappled spot lit by a large bay fitted with café-style timber shutters. A tall, column-style radiator emphasises the height of the detailed coved ceiling, while the timeless white colour scheme adds to the feeling of light and space. Bespoke shelves to one alcove leave room for freestanding furniture below.

Beyond is the second bedroom - another good-sized double that catches the morning light through the part-glazed door to the garden. Off-white walls combine with white-painted floorboards for a calming atmosphere, while a fitted wardrobe provides useful storage.

The hallway leads past an understairs cupboard into a spacious living and dining room brightened by a huge timber sash window, which offers views of the garden and indoor-outdoor vibes when open in summer. Come winter, the working Victorian fireplace with marble hearth turns the room into a cosy snug, and a fabulous floor-standing column-style radiator in gunmetal grey with tap valves adds further warmth. Other design details include a chunky floating shelf above the door, bespoke alcove shelving, a factory-style enamel ceiling pendant and a bespoke Roman blind to the window.

In the kitchen (installed in 2018), white slab cabinetry with integrated handles pairs with teak wooden worktops and white metro tiles with contrasting grouting to the walls. An original exposed steel beam runs overhead, while solid oak shelves echo the original floorboards, and a ceramic inset sink and drainer with chrome mixer tap sits beneath the double casement window. Integrated appliances include a four-ring Beko gas hob, oven, fridge and a Beko washing machine.

The glossy white metro wall tiles continue in the bathroom beyond, where attractive Victorian-patterned floor tiles run underfoot. There's a newly-fitted glass-screened rainfall shower enclosure, a contemporary wall-hung sink with chrome mixer tap, and a loo. A full-width mirror above the sink area bounces light from the frosted window around the room, and there's also a heated towel rail.

Outside, the garden enjoys the sun from mid-morning until sundown. The side return courtyard blends beach pebbles with stepping-stone pavers, which flow through to a spot for seating and a wild-growing lawn. Towards the back is a dining area paved with original York stone, and beyond, separated by a railway sleeper, is a raised firepit area. A climbing passionflower to one side and ivy on the other create a leafy, secluded feeling, while herbs such as rosemary and thyme grow in hand-built reclaimed wooden planters.


A NOTE FROM THE OWNERS

'We couldn't have been happier with our first home and the lovely community on Francis Road that comes with it. It's a peaceful, cottage-like property with historic Victorian features - a calm little enclave at the heart of the friendly hustle of Leyton village.

'We particularly love the large original sash window in the living room, which is beautiful and unique to these properties. The stripped wooden panelling in the hallway gives it real character, and the bright and airy front bedroom with bay windows and shutters is the perfect spot to sit and read, particularly as the pedestrianised street now means very few cars pass by.'


IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Francis Road is one of Leyton's most constantly in-demand locations, thanks to its urban village of independent local businesses. Firm favourites include Marmelo for morning coffee and locally-baked sourdough, Yardarm wine bar for an evening glass of wine, Phlox bookstore, Edie Rose florist, Morny bakery, Pause yoga studio, and Venner for gifts and homewares.

The recently renovated Northcote pub is at the end of the road, and nearby you'll also find the Heathcote & Star pub, Filly Brook craft beer hall, the Gravity Well Taproom brewery & bar, and the Coach & Horses, which serves a fantastic Sunday roast.

Just around the corner is Leyton County Cricket Ground with its wonderful Edwardian pavilion, while Coronation Gardens is around a 13-minutes walk. The location is perfectly placed to enjoy the beautiful green spaces of the Olympic Park, Wanstead Flats and Hollow Ponds.

The current owners love to visit Epping Forest, a short cycle or drive away, as well as going further west to enjoy the marshes or walking down the Lea navigation into Hackney Wick. They also recommend the tennis courts in nearby Abbots Park.

The Overground at Leyton Midland Road is around a 10-minute stroll and has a swift change to the Victoria Line at Blackhorse Road. The Tube at Leytonstone is about 15 minutes' walk, making light work of getting to the City, West End, Canary Wharf and South Bank. Just two stops away, Stratford hosts the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park and serious retail therapy at Westfield.

Popular and well-performing schools with an Ofsted rating of Good or above include local primaries Newport and Dawlish and Norlington Secondary & 6th Form for Boys.
