Lovingly restored, refurbished and extended over the last 10 years, this colourful Victorian home has been revitalised for modern family life, with a beautiful loft conversion at the top and plenty of original character and charm. Set within a peaceful residential area between Francis Road and High Road Leytonstone, and walking distance from both Central and Overground stations, the location ensures you'll never be short of something to do.

During renovations, the current owners used materials sympathetic to the property's period heritage. This process involved replacing all the windows with double-glazed Foster & Sons timber sashes; repointing the brickwork in lime; completing a full rewire and installing a new central heating system. They've also carefully preserved the original Victorian cast-iron fireplaces, plasterwork and doors, and reinstated solid-wood panelled and glazed doors when required to chime with the home's ingrained character.

The charming mid-Victorian exterior will capture your heart at first sight. Pause to admire a bay window with decorative columns and a natural zinc roof, and a recessed front entrance with elegant pediment and lintels, which contrast against the exposed brickwork and blue-painted window frames and guttering.

Inside, the hallway's stripped wood floor continues into the open-plan double reception room to the right. The living area absorbs natural light from the bay through frosted glass to the lower panes, while an original working cast-iron fireplace with marble surround and tiled hearth acts as a central focal point.

Bespoke alcove shelving either side, painted in Little Green Juniper Ash, can hold a TV and a sizable book collection. The ceiling rose in the living room was matched to the original in the dining room by local plaster mouldings craftsman Bill O'Gorman, and anchors the coving to the ceiling. A second marble fireplace and original French doors leading to the garden add further character.

Passing the staircase in the hallway, you'll find a door to the cellar, plus a utility room/downstairs loo to the right with slots for a washing machine and dryer below a reclaimed wooden worktop with butler sink, and a Worcester Bosch combi boiler.

Head through to the spacious kitchen - a bright and airy hub in which to cook, eat and entertain, illuminated by recessed downlights, hanging pendants, Velfac French doors to the garden and a pretty bay window with ample room for a large kitchen table.

White and grey units with chrome handles and reclaimed wooden worktops pair with a white tiled splashback to create a generous and streamlined food preparation area. Integrated appliances include an electric oven, gas hob, overhead extractor, and a dishwasher. There's also a double stainless-steel pantry cupboard and space for an American-style fridge freezer - perfect for self-confessed foodies.

Exploring the first floor, you'll discover a front-facing principal bedroom with two sash windows, stripped-wood flooring, two bespoke fitted alcove wardrobes and a cast-iron fireplace. There are two further well-proportioned carpeted doubles on this floor overlooking the garden, with a cast iron fireplace and original fitted cupboard to the middle room.

In the large family bathroom, white tiles run between soft grey wall paint and bright yellow Forbo flooring, with a pop of colour from the red heated towel rail. A separate recessed shower enclosure, bath with telephone mixer, vanity basin and loo complete the suite.

Follow the green open-stringer staircase - with tropical hardwood bannister rail - to the recently converted loft, which is clad in standing seam VM Anthra Zinc and features space-saving Eclisse pocket doors. The landing splits to large front and rear double bedrooms, each with wooden flooring and both Velux and Velfac windows. The loft is served by a stylish and contemporary three-piece shower room.

Outside, the 23ft garden includes a sunny paved patio with steps up to a raised lawn and terraced beds. Trellised timber fencing, raised flower beds and textural trees such as palms and black bamboo screen the garden and provide a haven for local birds. The orange garden hanging posts, which feature hooks suitable for function (retractable washing line) and fun (festoon lights), as well as useful storage units to the side, were constructed from salvaged roof timbers. There's also an outdoor power socket. Taps can be found in both the front and rear gardens.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Park Grove Road is a quiet pocket of Leytonstone about 12 minutes' walk from the town centre and Central line station, with favourite shops and restaurants of the current owners including Panda Dim Sum, Keraspice, Yard Sale Pizza, Singburi and To Be Consumed. Francis Road is within walking distance and has a wonderful collection of independent shops, relaxed cafés and an organic grocer. Or you can take the kids for a splash at Cathall pool just at the end of the road - brilliant for a weekday swim or Saturday session in the training pool.

Nearby schools with 'Good' or 'Outstanding' Ofsted ratings include Mayville Primary, Davies Lane Primary, and Connaught for Girls.

Leytonstone High Road Overground station is approximately 4 minutes' walk, while Leyton & Leytonstone tubes are both within 15 minutes. Stratford is 12 minutes by bus for serious retail, restaurant and cultural therapy at Westfield and the East Village, as well as a major transport interchange for Underground, Overground, DLR, National Rail and HS1.

Finally, Wanstead Flats' wild and beautiful green spaces are less than 10 minutes' walk and provide a glorious setting for relaxing - or running! - in the great outdoors.
