Bright and welcoming, this beautifully renovated two-bedroom Victorian house blends original character with contemporary charm. Containing the square footage expected of a three-bedroom property, it has a private garden and also offers the potential to extend into the loft (subject to the usual planning and consents).

In recent years, the current owners have made numerous improvements, such as installing a new kitchen, heating system and boiler, replacing the windows with uPVC double-glazed sashes, and completing a full rewiring.

At the same time, they restored the original fireplaces and sanded and vanished the original floorboards in a rich wenge shade. The interior doors, dating to around 1890, received new handles and were repainted in Farrow & Ball's Railings.

Situated just a stone's throw from a local park on a quiet residential street, the house greets you with a classic Victorian brick frontage, complete with stone columns and foliage capitals to the bay window and recessed porch. A monochrome chequered pathway leads past a low wall to a smart to a smart four-panelled front door with polished chrome knocker and Banham locks, painted in Railings to match those inside.

Stepping inside the hallway, Strong White and India Yellow two-tone Farrow & Ball paintwork contrasts with the dark stained original floorboards. The same heritage shade is echoed on the dark wooden treads of the staircase, which has a good-sized storage cupboard underneath.

The exposed floorboards continue into the double reception room on your left. Here, Strong White walls and a ceiling trimmed with ornate cornicing and a decorative rose reflect the light from the canted bay to the front and large sash to the rear. Bespoke full-height shelving links a characterful pair of original open fireplaces, while other lovely details include a wonderfully curved wall and a pair of coloured glass pendant lights.

Return to the hallway and continue into a modern kitchen brightened by a bay window to the dining area, glazed French doors to the garden, and spotlights controlled by stylish Buster & Punch switches. Farrow & Ball Stiffkey Blue walls are paired with large-format charcoal grey floor tiles and glossy white handle-free cabinetry, which is finished by a solid wooden worktop and a white tiled splashback with contrasting grouting.

Appliances include a dual Smeg range cooker with stainless steel extractor hood, an integrated washing machine and dishwasher, and a freestanding Kenwood American-style fridge-freezer.

Upstairs, the split-level landing leads straight into a super-sized luxury bathroom, where recessed spots punctuate the high ceiling and a dramatic bay window with frosted glass adds to the feeling of light and space. The showstopper here is a beautiful April Airton freestanding bathtub with wall-mounted taps. It's set against a backdrop of pink Farrow & Ball Nancy's Blushes paintwork and white metro tiles laid in a herringbone pattern to the walls, while slate-grey tiles run underfoot.

A large, recessed waterfall shower enclosure with sliding glass screen adds to the hotel feel, while a contemporary close-coupled loo and a square mounted basin with chrome taps and integrated towel rail complete the suite. There's also a feature fireplace and plenty of open shelving - perfect for spa-like fluffy towels.

On the upper landing, past a useful original storage cupboard, you'll discover the large front-facing primary bedroom, which runs the full width of the front of the house and is lit by two large sash windows. As well as Strong White walls and original floorboards stained to match those downstairs, there's a lovingly restored original fireplace with tiled surround and stone hearth.

Beyond, the same restful décor scheme has been continued in the second double bedroom, which has a similarly restored original fireplace and views to the garden below.

Outside, the east-facing garden is enclosed with timber fencing and enjoys the sun from morning until late afternoon. From the kitchen, glazed double doors open directly onto a well-maintained decked area that gives way to a neat lawn with sleeper-edged flower borders, and a raised rear patio built with attractive reclaimed bricks, ideal for barbecues or a firepit.

A NOTE FROM THE OWNERS

'When we bought this house, it was in a state of disrepair. There was no hot running water or heating, and you could literally put your fingers through the wooden sash windows. We feel a real sense of pride from spending eight years turning this into a warm, welcoming home that retains the essence and character of the building.'

IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Residential Gordon Road lies between a quiet recreation ground and a street adjoining High Road Leyton. The Leyton Star and Zizu's restaurant are only moments away, while if you continue north, you'll discover a range of excellent shops, pubs and eateries and a swift route to the bustling Francis Road.

Nearby Leyton Underground (around 6 minutes' walk) runs Central line services into the City, the West End, Canary Wharf, and South Bank. Just one stop along, Stratford hosts the fantastic Queen Elizabeth Park and serious retail therapy at Westfield.

You can also reach Stratford by foot within around 20 minutes, with Hackney Marshes and the Lea Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre also on your doorstep. The current owners recommended the 15-minute stroll to the East Village to visit Hand Café for weekend brunches and Tina We Salute You for evening drinks.

To the east, High Road Leytonstone offers even more restaurants and shops, including the ever-popular Thai restaurant Singburi, To Be Consumed wine bar, and Panda Dim Sum. Jubilee Pond and Wanstead Flats lie just slightly further afield, forming the southernmost tip of Epping Forest.

Education-wise, you'll find Downsell Primary School close by and the Ofsted-rated 'Outstanding' Chobham Academy on Cheering Lane, which is only 10 minutes by foot.
