5 bedroom semi-detached house for saleFelstead Road, Wanstead, E11
Sold STC £1,550,000
Nestled behind George Green in Central Wanstead sits Felstead Road: a quiet tree lined turning that is just a short walk from Wanstead High Street with its good mix of cafés, shops, restaurants and bars, as well as Wanstead’s two large greens and good local schools. Transport links are also close for those wishing to travel into the city, being only a five minute walk (0.2 miles) to Wanstead Underground Station and within close proximity to the North Circular.
From the outside it is apparent that this stunning property is not only characterful but enjoys a wide plot, with a private lane to the left providing access to a detached outbuilding housing a garage to the ground floor with living space above. Entering the property the scale of the home and the original features immediately make an impression. The hallway, large enough to accommodate a piano and additional furniture, showcases all the beautiful features of a grand Edwardian house, such as ornate stained glass windows, parquet flooring, high ceilings, cornicing and a central fireplace. Both reception rooms leading from the magnificent hallway are equally impressive in scale and features, with the dining room currently accommodating a dining suite and sofa suite with ease and the living room accommodating a larger sofa suite and library space to the rear. The large bay window in the dining room allows the light to flood in whilst the ornate radiators below add to its charm and originality. The same can be said for the living room where instead of a large bay the focal point of the room is the intricate leaded glass windows and French doors to the garden.
The kitchen, breakfast room and pantry currently provide excellent space and light but also present the opportunity for the next buyer to create a larger, open plan entertaining and cooking space. The original dresser, radiators and tiles are a rare find and would look fantastic alongside more modern additions should the next owner wish to retain them. The enclosed veranda, which runs alongside the kitchen, can be directly accessed from the kitchen and breakfast room and provides excellent further storage by way of original
‘housekeeper’ cupboards as well as sheltered seating for when you wish to enjoy the British summer whilst avoiding the inevitable showers that come with it. Alternatively, subject to planning, the new owners could create a stunning wrap around orangery or show-stopping kitchen/diner; creating the perfect juxtaposition of Edwardian character and striking contemporary design.
To the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms, the majority of which feature charming fireplaces, ornate sash windows and stripped wooden floorboards. There is also a fifth single bedroom, which could function as an office or potentially a second bathroom depending on your needs. There is a separate bathroom to w/c with the bathroom featuring a large sash window and Edwardian tiles – a rare find in such properties. The loft space is exceptionally large and could look to be converted into one very large space or a number of bedrooms and bathrooms (STPC), allowing the next seller to very easily create additional living space for the family or for an Au Pair.
Externally the property boasts a detached outbuilding, now housing a garage below and a large space above, which was formerly the property’s coach house and billiards room. The buildig still retains its ornate pillars externally and given its size could be used as additional entertaining/work/family space or separate annex for additional family members. The original slate billiards table now forms part of the fabric of the home by way of a seating area outside of the former billiards room and doorstep into the main house – the pockets of the table are still visible if you look closely enough! The surrounding garden is fantastically well maintained, incredibly private and the perfect place to sit and relax.
