4 Bedroom House

Classic character and contemporary decor

Four bedrooms including loft conversion

Stunning master bedroom suite

Terrific dining kitchen with room to seat 18

Quiet street near Francis Road & High Road

Seven-minutes' walk from Leytonstone tube

This light, bright four-bedroom Edwardian house has been lovingly decorated by the current owners and sits in a quiet street just seven-minutes' walk from Leytonstone tube. The interior unfolds across 1237 sq ft, with fine views over the beautifully landscaped garden. Here is where classic meets modern: a traditional black-and-white tiled pathway leads up to the porch while a quirky elephant mural in matching tones on the front garden wall gives the house a stylish and fun family feel. Inside, the monochrome theme continues and is brought to life with classic Edwardian features, while stunning glossy black floorboards on the ground floor offset the bright white walls.

On entering the property, the sitting room is to your right. Elegantly painted in Farrow & Ball Pavilion Grey the room has many original features including the very tall skirting boards, a beautiful square bay window and a wonderfully high ceiling with coving and rose: perfect for hanging a chandelier. An electric stove sits on a black quartz hearth, while the alcoves either side are fitted with floating shelves by a local joiner and currently display a colourful array of books.

At the back of the house, past the useful guest loo under the stairs, the original kitchen and dining room have been extended and connected by a central island in a large wall opening. Supremely functional and ideal for entertaining, there's room enough to seat 18 people for memorable gatherings of family or friends. The smart white kitchen units provide plenty of storage with integrated appliances including a Samsung oven, concealed Zanussi washing machine, John Lewis full-height fridge and dishwasher. At the garden end of the dining area is a separate space currently used as a home office where recently refurbished bi-folding doors open the interior to the outside, with a second garden door leading from the kitchen area.

Outside, the stone-paved patio catches the sun for breakfast, from where you can hear the gentle sound of the pond trickling (which comes with a removable safety cover for children). Beyond the lawn, a second, smaller seating area gets more sunshine in the late afternoon. Timber fencing and stylish planters of railway sleepers are all painted black in a striking contemporary scene offset with established olive, apple and eucalyptus trees. There's also a useful storage shed.

On the first floor are three bedrooms and a family bathroom whose white paintwork gives the feeling of size and space, warmed by the richness of solid wood countertops. Two of the bedrooms are designed with children in mind, with the larger of the pair having two large timber sash windows overlooking the street and a colourfully painted animal mural. The third bedroom overlooks the garden and makes a fine study with its floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. 100% wool carpets run throughout this level.

The second-floor loft conversion was added by the current owners in 2015 and is occupied entirely by the master bedroom suite. Three Velux windows - one above the stairs - create a dual aspect that brings a welcome breeze in the heat of summer to a wonderfully bright and thoughtfully conceived space. There are numerous spotlights and power sockets - including connections for a floating television - as well as storage in the eaves and custom-built wardrobes. The stylish en suite bathroom includes a heated linen cupboard.

Among many other notable features at the house are wooden sash windows in almost every room, new fireproof panelled doors in 2015, and an Asgard bike shed at the front of the property.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Scarborough Road is well placed in the neighbourhood and just ten minutes' walk from lovely Francis Road with its wonderful collection of delis, coffee spots and independent shops. Try Yardarm for bread, Marmelo for delicious dining, Venner for gifts, and Flox for books. The dining and bar scene has exploded in the last few years, and there's much to choose from nearby including the Heathcote and Star for its quiz and Sunday roasts; excellent craft beer bars at either Solvay Society or Filly Brook; and Yard Sale for exceptional pizzas to your door.

Leytonstone has many green spaces to choose from, popular with adults and children alike: Wanstead Flats and Hollow Pond for relaxing walks and boating; Sidmouth Park for climbing on frames and a wooden pterodactyl; and Abbots Park with its zip wire. Leytonstone Leisure Centre is also nearby and has a gym and pool.

You'll also find Good and Outstanding Ofsted-rated education, including Davies Lane and Newport Primaries and Norlington School & 6th Form.
