Spacious, serene, and stylish - this stunning, remodelled three-storey, five-bedroom Victorian home is the perfect marriage of character and modern living. Nestled in a quiet residential area between Francis Road and Hollow Pond, a lush green rear garden completes the fantastic, family-friendly setup.

The house greets you with a cleaned and repointed red-brick Victorian frontage, which forms a striking backdrop to the freshly repainted full-height bay windows with stone lintels, sills and foliage-topped columns. A similarly ornate colonnaded porch surrounds a beautiful panelled teal front door with an inset stained-glass panel, chrome door furniture and numbered transom window.

In the front garden, a mature olive tree sits behind a low brick wall with wrought-iron railings, while a matching gate opens onto a Victorian-style patterned tiled path. Step through into a tall hallway with original wooden floorboards and two-tone paintwork above the high skirtings and picture rail.

Ahead lies a staircase with white-painted banisters, but for now, turn left to discover the bright, multi-purpose double reception room, lit by a large, canted bay window with café-style wooden shutters. There's a well-considered range of bespoke fitted furniture, including a media unit and box seat to the alcoves (creating a fabulous reading nook), as well as a long set of incredibly useful shelves and cupboards to the rear. Soft grey walls rise to the dado rail, while the high coved ceilings include ornate central roses at both ends. Other character details include original sanded floorboards, two attractive column-style radiators, and a traditional-style cast-iron fireplace.

Further down the hall, you'll pass a cloakroom with new Claybrook Metro Deco tiles to the wall and Old Havana Palos handmade encaustic floor tiles, before arriving at the heart of the home - the stunning 28ft-long dining kitchen.

Filled with light from two sets of white-framed bifold doors and a large Velux, beautiful pale Kährs ash wood flooring increases the sense of airiness and space, while recessed downlights and statement pendants, white triple-column vertical radiators and muted taupe shaker-style wrap-around cabinetry add warmth to the fresh, neutral décor. A white metro-tiled splashback with contrasting charcoal grouting and a white composite worktop help pull the scheme together, while there's also a wood-topped butcher's block freestanding island.

To one side, two integrated fridge-freezers flank a bank of storage and two integrated double AEG ovens, an AEG microwave, and a Whirlpool coffee machine. To the other side, you'll find a five-ring gas hob with a glass and stainless-steel extractor hood, a 1.5-bowl undermounted sink, and an integrated dishwasher and washing machine.

There's room for a ten-foot table in the dining area - the current owners say this means it's an ideal spot for working, homework, crafts and games while still leaving room to eat. They particularly enjoy socialising with the doors open, looking out onto the green and peaceful garden.

Returning to the hallway, take the stairs to the carpeted first-floor landing. Straight ahead, at the rear of the house, is a good-sized double bedroom decorated with soft blue-grey wall tones and a grey carpet - echoed in all the bedrooms on this floor. Two large casement windows overlooking the garden and the side return courtyard further brighten the space.

The family bathroom lies adjacent and features slate-grey floor tiles and glossy buff metro tiling to the walls. The bath comes with an overhead shower, and there's also a white basin vanity unit with chrome mixer tap, and a close-coupled loo.

Continue along the landing to find a lovely garden-facing middle double, before arriving in the spacious front primary bedroom. Both the canted bay window here and the one beside it are fitted with bespoke café-style timber shutters and give a calming view of greenery from the tall olive tree outside. There are also two radiators, and lots of space for wardrobes and storage.

Back on the landing, a second grey-striped carpeted staircase rises to the loft conversion. At the rear is a versatile single bedroom or home office that matches the décor in the rooms below, lit by a pendant light and a casement window. You'll also find access to handy eaves storage.

Next door is a stylish fully-tiled three-piece shower room, and the large front double bedroom, which could easily act as the primary. Timber-framed Velux windows and glazed French doors to the juliette balcony - all fitted with bespoke blinds - combine with recessed downlights, while soft grey carpet runs underfoot. There's useful storage underneath the eaves here, too.

Outside, the rear garden catches the sun from the afternoon. Accessed via the bifold doors in the dining area, the paved patio extends from the side return and meets a well-tended lawn enclosed by timber fencing and trellising. Non-spreading Fargesia red panda bamboo screens the garden to the rear, while colourful flowering plants and shrubs fill the borders, including red tip photinia (red robin tree), clematis and ceanothus (California lilac).

A NOTE FROM THE OWNERS

'When you close the front door, it feels very secluded and quiet. There's so much room for everyone - guest rooms, study space, and a big kitchen and reception. This has been an amazing house for us; we've raised our children here and been fortunate to live so close to so many wonderful corners of London.

We'll particularly miss the sound of birdsong from the aviary in the adjacent garden, which is very peaceful. We hope the new owners enjoy the house and area as much as we have.

IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

James Lane occupies a convenient spot in Leyton, about an eight-minute walk from Leyton Midland Road station and a similar distance from Leytonstone Underground station (Central Line - 24 hours at weekends). The town centre is also close by, where you'll find local favourites on the high road such as The Red Lion pub, Wild Goose Bakery, Panda Dim Sum and Yard Sale Pizza. The current owners also recommend Perky Blenders next to Leyton Midland Road for coffee and Morny Bakehouse on Francis Road for pastries and treats.

A 12-minute stroll north will bring you to Walthamstow Village, where you'll find other top choices such as Eat17, Wildcard Brewery, Pillars Taproom and Parish Wines.

Some of the fantastic open green spaces within walking distance include Hollow Pond and Henry Reynolds Gardens (both reachable within 15-20 minutes), with Wanstead Flats and Park extending beyond. Walthamstow marshes and Victoria Park are also not far away.

Alternatively, hop onto the A12 and head down to Stratford for shopping or to enjoy sporting events and concerts at the London Stadium; continue to Canary Wharf; or take the A11 into the heart of the City.
