For more information or a personalised quote, just give us a call. Alternatively, if you are under 60 or would like to purchase this property without a lifetime lease at its full market price of £415,000, please contact Douglas Allen.


Sitting at the kitchen table, cup in hand with the early sunrise you stare into the garden and contemplate the day ahead. The stirrings of the children overhead take you from your dreamlike state as they descend the stairs to shower, eat and head off to school.

As the silence consumes the house after their departure it is your turn to leave. The car is secure in the garage. Today you take the short walk to the bus stop to head into Ilford. The Exchange has the majority of shops that you need but with time on your hands the short train journey to Westfields seems more appealing.

The property may be on a quiet residential turning but it is not too far from the major road links, transport including City and Stansted Airports and many retail outlets.

When the day starts to close in and the family return the centre of the house becomes that hive of activity again. With everyone eagerly anticipating the evening meal, seated round the dining table you smile to yourself and think how lucky you are to have such a wonderful family and such a beautiful home.

What the Owner says:

What made us buy this property over 15 years ago?
When we drove up and saw this house with an attached garage and stepped inside and saw the potential, we knew this would be our family home. The stillness of the road, the park nearby for us to enjoy on summer’s days, the local school for our young ladies to attend sealed the deal.

Over the years we have enhanced our home to make life more comfortable. The kitchen is certainly the heart of the home and ours is no exception. Overlooking the garden where nature unfolds with the changing seasons it is a pleasure to sit at the dining table and watch it happen. However, there is still more that can be done if the new owner desires.

We feel blessed to have met the neighbours that we have and to have had the enjoyment of this house and the surroundings.
