A bright, spacious and stylish basement garden flat, nestling the heart of Upper Leytonstone.
This utterly charming home has it’s own entrance door, located on the side of the property. This leads you into one of the largest reception rooms we’ve ever seen in a flat, at a cavernous 180 square feet. It has cool monochrome walls and beautiful wood flooring underfoot, which combine to create a wonderful, multi use hub to this flat, easily capable of accommodating a number of different uses, from relaxing quietly in front of the TV, to enjoying the company of friends and family around the dining table.
It might be more accurate to call the reception room the centre rather than the hub, as most of the other rooms lead off it. To the front are the two bedrooms – one a bay windowed double, the other a generous single. Both have built in storage and that same rich flooring as the reception...
- To the rear sits a wonderful kitchen. This has a range of modern fitted units, tiled floor and splashbacks, and at 120 square feet is large for a property of this type. An internal hallway leads to the family bathroom, complete with three piece suite.
Outside there is a private garden, mostly laid to lawn and with a sizeable patio area directly outside the back door, perfect for relaxing on a warm evening.
Living here... - Upper Leytonstone is a truly fantastic place to live. It’s an area both buzzing with things to do and see (more bars and eateries than you can shake a stick at), yet at the same time perched on the very edge of some of the best open spaces in East London in Epping Forest and Wanstead Flats. Night or day, energetic or contemplative, there is always something to do in this wonderful part of the capital, but if you do need to travel further afield then the excellent road and tube links ensure a journey as pain free as possible. It’s an area full of history, but overflowing with life, and if you don’t catch the Leytonstone bug once you’ve been here a couple of times….well, there may seriously be no hope for you.
In This Area... - Leytonstone, or Leyton-St-One as my friend calls it when she’s trying to sound posh, is the birth place 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. If you are a fan of Thai food, wander down the High Road to Singburi - the Pad Talay is all kinds of amazing. The Northcote Arms, which is technically in Leyton, is a great pub with a real community feel, or on the High Road there’s 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 tours don’t run all year around, so you’d need to keep an eye on their website for dates, but it’s well worth doing. The views are simply spectacular, especially at sunset with the lights of the City set aga
