High ceilings & period features

Recently refitted kitchen

Impeccably designed throughout

New boiler & column-style radiators

Private sun-trap garden

Just moments from desirable Francis Road

In a designated Low Traffic Neighbourhood this chic two-bedroom ground-floor maisonette sits on a wide-tree lined street and belongs to the historic J G Abraham era, which saw Scotts Road and the surrounding streets gain around 500 apartments reflecting the Victorian talent for thoughtful and liveable spaces. These sought-after properties lend themselves to modern reinventions, with their period details and proportions forming the perfect backdrop to an injection of contemporary materials and design - with this one no exception.

The interior has been beautifully redecorated by its designer-owners, it's a home of clean, elegant lines and natural colours, filled with light and period features.

As you move through the rooms, you'll discover thoughtful design touches such as brass fittings, solid wood flooring, new internal doors with matte black handles, patterned tiling, and Farrow & Ball paintwork. Outside, the same attention-to-detail has been applied in the zoning and planting of the private Mediterranean-style courtyard garden to the rear.

From the street, a brick wall fringed with flowering plants screens a front patio lying in the shadow of a silver birch. A path leads past the traditional brick exterior to a recessed front porch, where a part-glazed four-panelled front door and transom window illuminates a long hallway with open shelving, space for coat hooks and access to a handy concealed storage area.

Turn right into a fantastic, light-filled living room where a Farrow & Ball Green Smoke accent wall with bespoke alcove shelving tones beautifully with the solid walnut floor. A large, original sash bay window with plantation shutters brightens the soft white wall tones that rise beyond the picture rails to the high coved ceiling, which features a central rose with pendant light fitting.

The large primary bedroom lies behind and overlooks an attractively landscaped side return courtyard through a casement window fitted with bespoke Venetian blinds. The walnut flooring continues here and works well with the Farrow & Ball Setting Plaster walls and triple-column radiator to create an atmosphere that's both relaxing and warm.

Continue along the hallway to discover a stylish modern kitchen featuring a custom-made quartz-topped breakfast bar with hairpin legs along one side. Quartz worksurfaces and upstands are also paired with dove-grey shaker-style cabinetry with brass handles, a ceramic undermounted sink with brass mixer tap and natural oak-style flooring. There's space here for open shelving too. Integrated appliances include a Stoves double electric oven with gas hob and overhead extractor fan, a Gorenje fridge-freezer, a dishwasher and a washer-dryer. A window overlooks the courtyard, while there's also a contemporary vertical radiator and an incredibly useful backlit larder nook.

The oak-style flooring flows into a single bedroom, nursery, or home office, where white walls pick up the light from a large rear window fitted with custom Venetian blinds. You'll also find plenty of shelving, a pendant light fitting and a column-style radiator.

Patterned ceramic floor tiles and Farrow & Ball De Nimes paintwork decorate the adjoining rear hallway, which provides access to the side return. It also leads into a period-inspired bathroom enhanced with tongue and groove wall panelling, solid wood shelves, and white mosaic wall tiles. Victorian-style taps adorn the wooden vanity basin unit and a panelled bath with an overhead shower attachment. A fabulous traditional column towel rail radiator and close-coupled loo complete the suite.

Landscaped in 2020 with new painted slatted fences, bespoke wooden planters, built-in storage and covered bike store, the sun-trap garden extends from the fragrant jasmine-filled courtyard side return to a stone-paved terrace and a raised decking area. Enjoying the sun from morning until early evening, bamboo trees screen the garden to the rear, while ornamental grasses, cordyline, Mexican orange blossom, heuchera, and lavender provide year-round greenery. Alliums, agapanthus, and canna lily also add some lovely pops of colour during the spring.

A NOTE FROM THE OWNERS

'This is the first home we've bought together, and as designers, we've loved the process of restoring and decorating each room. The garden is a real haven and where we spent most of our time in the warmer months. We feel fortunate to have such lovely neighbours all around us whilst also having the Francis Road community on our doorstep. We'll be very sad to leave London, but we hope the next owners love the flat as much as we have!'

IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Just moments from Francis Road, the location is one of Leyton's most constantly in demand, thanks to its urban village of independent local businesses.

Nearby you'll also find the Heathcote & Star pub, Filly Brook craft beer hall, the Gravity Well Taproom brewery & bar and the Coach & Horses, which the current owners tell us serves a fantastic Sunday roast.

Just around the corner is Leyton County Cricket Ground with its wonderful Edwardian pavilion, while Coronation gardens is around 13-minutes' walk.
