This charming three-bedroom Edwardian house lies on a tree-lined residential street just a few minutes from both expansive green spaces and popular local pubs, cafés and shops, with three rail stations all within walking distance.

Inside, a wealth of period details includes high coved ceilings, box bay windows, a cast-iron fireplace, and stripped wood floors and doors, with paintwork in carefully chosen subtle Farrow & Ball shades. To the rear, you'll also discover a fully-enclosed, private garden.

White rose bushes decorate an Edwardian brick frontage, with stone lintels and columns to the windows, box bay and wide recessed porch.

Exposed floorboards begin as you enter through the forest green panelled and glazed front door into the hallway - painted with Farrow & Ball's soft grey Hardwick White tones to dado-rail height and continue throughout most of the house.

Through a stripped timber panelled door on your left, the central large square bay window fills the living room with light and complements the white walls, picture rails and corniced ceiling. Built-in wooden shelves match the warm wood tones of the mantelpiece, which frames a beautiful fireplace with wide stone hearth.

Return to the hallway, passing the staircase with striking striped charcoal runner and a handy storage cupboard underneath, to arrive in the dining kitchen. A reproduction feature fireplace, fabulous quarry floor tiles and a bespoke in-built dresser with shelves made from 19th Century pine help this spacious area retain a character feel, brightened by a large window and glazed French door to the separate utility. Silvery-toned Farrow & Ball Light Blue walls brilliantly set off a range of cream cabinetry and solid wooden worktops, while integrated features and appliances include a deep butler sink, a Bosch dishwasher and a Kenwood range with gas hob and steel overhead extractor.

Continue into the glazed utility to find the boiler, space for a useful ceiling-hung clothes airer, and a separate laundry cupboard housing an AEG washing machine. It's a fantastic room for houseplants, blurring the lines between indoors and outdoors, as from here, a new glazed oak door opens to the garden.

Upstairs, the stripped wood floorboards continue into a large front-facing primary bedroom with more elegant cornicing, filled with light thanks to the wide square bay window. Farrow & Ball String wall tones create a calming atmosphere and pick up on the original tile inserts in the lovely cast-iron fireplace. There's also an original built-in wardrobe to one alcove.

To the left the third bedroom (a small single) works well as a home office or nursery and is painted a dramatic charcoal grey with a large window overlooking the street.

Continuing back down the hallway, the soft grey-carpeted second double bedroom has views onto the garden and also features integrated storage - as well as another fireplace, finished with a carved white mantlepiece.

You'll find the part-tiled family bathroom overlooking the garden via a large, frosted window. Large format dusky blue wall tiles and luxury vinyl flooring are paired with a contemporary white suite including a bath with shower and frameless glass screen, a wall-mounted basin with mirrored cabinet above, a tall chrome heated towel rail and a close-coupled loo.

Outside, the peaceful garden has been fully enclosed by pressure-treated fence panels (installed in 2015 and guaranteed for 20 years). Mature shrubs - including Fatsia Japonica, tree ferns and a non-fruiting cherry tree - border a stone-paved terrace that captures the sun throughout the day. There's also a useful shed and eco-friendly water butt nestled in the corner.

A NOTE FROM THE OWNERS

"Since moving to Leytonstone, we have seen the area develop in such a positive way. It's so well connected for going into town and escaping London quickly by road or public transport.

One of the things that initially attracted us to the house was the large kitchen - it's a fantastic room for entertaining, offering plenty of space whilst keeping an intimate feel. We also love the period features in this house, particularly the high ceilings, large bay windows, stunning fireplaces, cornicing and dado rails."

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, Morny for incredible pastries, Venner for gifts, and Phlox for books.

The dining and bar scene has exploded in the last few years, including the Heathcote and Star for its pub garden, quiz and Sunday roasts; excellent craft beer bars at either Solvay Society or Filly Brook; and Yard Sale for exceptional pizzas. The current owners also recommend the old-school North Star in Bushwood, The Wild Goose Bakery, and the exceptionally varied international supermarket on Leytonstone High Road.

Leytonstone has many green spaces, 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. The Olympic Park is easily accessible via cycle routes and connects with the River Lea if you want to venture further afield. Leytonstone Leisure Centre is also nearby and has a gym and pool.

In addition, you'll find Good and Outstanding Ofsted-rated education, including Davies Lane and Newport Primaries and Norlington School & 6th Form. Travel links are strong too, with Leytonstone Tube, Leytonstone High Road (Overground) and Leyton Midland Road all just a short walk away.
