Looking to snap up a period home with free reign to unleash your eye for interior design? Whether your style is experimental, expressive or artistic, you'll enjoy getting stuck into this renovation-ready project to indulge your passion for Victorian character and contemporary living.

The house is the perfect blank canvas and already functional enough to live in while you unlock its potential room by room: there's no need to feel pressured to rush your creative genius. Extended in 2001, the interior features a garden-facing kitchen that would make a great social space, especially during the summer months.

On a residential street close to a huge range of fantastic shops, pubs, and eateries, the house sits behind a low boundary wall and high hedge that screens the bay window to give the front a pleasantly private feel.

The exterior possesses the charming details you would expect from a Victorian home, such as decorative columns to the bay and variegated brickwork that frames sash windows crowned by white-painted lintels.

A tiled path leads to a smart wooden front door set with stained-glass, echoed in the panel above, illuminating the cheerful black-and-white chequered flooring to the inside lobby area. Stash coats and shoes here before entering the living room just to your left.

This cosy room centres around a handsome reproduction Victorian fireplace with striking blue tiles surrounding an open fire. Bespoke bookcases could replace the recessed shelving to either side for an even greater impact.

The bay window draws in lots of natural light, creating a lovely reading nook, while the ceiling height could support a statement pendant or chandelier to draw the eye upwards.

Continue straight ahead from the lobby into the bathroom, whose bright and fresh feel comes from white diamond-pattern floor tiles, rich blue tiling to the walls, and a large rear window with a deep sill for candles. The modern white suite includes a panelled bath with Victorian-style shower attachment, along with a washbasin and loo.

Follow the black-and-white floor past the central staircase into the open plan dining kitchen. The eating area is large enough for a big table and a sideboard, plus there's a fair amount of storage to the alcove beneath the stairs, where you can hide away shoes and cleaning equipment.

In the kitchen, windows to the rear work with two skylights, recessed downlights, and part-glazed double garden doors to create a bright and airy atmosphere that will invigorate any style you choose to implement. The kitchen currently includes wall and base units with a worktop, a stainless-steel sink and draining board, and spaces for a cooker, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher.

Upstairs, the quiet primary bedroom at the back has a feature fireplace, two big sashes overlooking the garden and a full wall of integrated wardrobes to stow away your clothing collection. From here a door opens to an en suite with a tiled shower enclosure, pedestal washbasin and loo.

The front bedroom is another good-sized double with two large windows and integrated storage cupboards.

Outside, the back garden extends to 28ft, starting with a paved terrace that runs into the side return. A paved path leads into a wild area that could be laid to lawn or transformed into colourful flower beds or a Japanese rock garden. Enclosed by trees, shrubs and larch lap fencing, it feels very secluded and private - ideal for parties or a spot of al fresco dining.


Short Road is in a quiet pocket of Leytonstone about 10 minutes' walk from the town centre, with notable shops and restaurants including Panda Dim Sum, Keraspice, Yard Sale Pizza and Theatre of Wine. Lovely Francis Road is within walking distance and has a wonderful collection of independent shops, relaxed cafés and an organic grocer. Burn off all those calories with a swim or gym session at the local leisure centre on Cathall Road.

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

Transport is excellent and close by with Leytonstone High Road Overground station about 3 minutes' walk and Leytonstone tube (Central Line) around 11 minutes. Or take a 12 minute bus ride to Stratford for serious retail, restaurant and cultural therapy at Westfield and the East Village, along with a major transport interchange for Underground, Overground, DLR, National Rail and HS1 services.

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.
