As you can see from the photos, the sun was shining when we visited this property, highlighting the charming yellow London brick façade. But we think even in the depths of winter this would be an inviting and welcoming home, thanks to the warm tones of the stripped wood flooring and the muted colour palette on the walls. On the ground floor there’s a dual aspect through lounge (perfect whether entertaining friends or just relaxing with a movie and popcorn with the kids), which in turn leads to a kitchen diner, lean to and WC. The three well proportioned and beautifully presented bedrooms are split over the two upper floors, with the master on the second floor having an en suite shower room, complimenting the large family bathroom on the first. A wander outside takes you to the private rear garden, where the little ones will be able to run around to their hearts content, whilst you relax in a deckchair and wonder where they get all that energy from. Summer or Winter, Spring or Autumn, this is a great house, and one we think you are definitely want to see for yourselves – you won’t be disappointed…
Living here... - Both Leytonstone and Maryland stations are within walking distance, meaning the delights of Westfield and the Olympic Park are within easy reach. And you definitely won't be lost for places to take friends, with days (and evenings) out in and around E10 (check out the Northcote, where they have an amazing pizzeria in the garden!) and E11 (the Sunday roast at The Red Lion is a personal favourite). Alternatively, nip across into E7 and head for Winchelsea Road, where there’s a thriving mix of eateries and bars in the railway arches. For those who are more active Leytonstone Leisure Centre (swimming pool and gym) is less than a 10 minute walk away along Cathall Road. Over the summer, Epping Forest offers the perfect spot for a relaxing stroll (with or without canine companion), picnic or messing about in a boat (on Hollow Ponds). Something for everyone then…
In This Area... - Leytonstone, or Leyton-St-One its posh nickname, is the birthplace and former home of Alfred Hitchcock. It gets its name, or the stone bit at least, from the Highstone mile marker which stands on Hollybush Hill. Bordering Walthamstow, Wanstead, Epping Forest, Leyton and Stratford, Leytonstone has a lot going on. The Northcote Arms, which is technically in Leyton, is the local pub. It's got a real community feel including Sunday drag nights, delicious stone-oven pizza and a wide selection of ales. Five mins down from the pub on Francis Road, stroll through "Leyton village" with its much-raved about restaurant Marmelo's, Yardarm wine and cafe and independent boutiques. On the Leytonstone side is the High Road where you can check out The Birds (spot the Hitchcock link?) or The North Star, tucked away in Bushwood. And If you want amazing views of the City, go on a tower tour at St John the Baptist Church. The views are simply spectacular, especially at sunset with the lights of
