Tenure: Leasehold


This property is offered at a reduced price for people aged over 60 through Homewise´s Home for Life Plan. Through the Home for Life Plan, anyone aged over sixty can purchase a lifetime lease on this property which discounts the price from its full market value. The size of the discount you are entitled to depends on your age, personal circumstances and property criteria and could be anywhere between 8.5% and 59% from the property´s full market value. The above price is for guidance only. It is based on our average discount and would be the estimated price payable by a 69-year-old single male. As such, the price you would pay could be higher or lower than this figure.

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 Home for Life Plan at its full market price of £425,000, please contact Douglas Allen.


This fantastic ground floor conversion flat is situated in a popular part of Upper Leytonstone. The location itself has a village feel with Victorian style street lamps, local church and attractive buildings.

This attractive property has double bedrooms, high ceilings and a cellar, but the jewel in the crown has to be the private rear garden.

This quaint enclave is snuggled between Whipps Cross, Hollow Pond and Wanstead. It mostly consists of well maintained Victorian residential homes and surrounded by green open spaces of Epping Forest with its boating

lakes and heaths. It is a perfect place to live for those who enjoy outdoor activities such as picnics and bike rides around Hollow Pond on those sunny days.

Commuters are well served by local buses and the underground station which is just a short walk, offering fast direct access to the City and central London.

You are also within walking distance of Alfred Hitchcock pub, ideal for Sunday lunch. Equally convenient is Leytonstone High Street with a wide range of amenities including coffee shops and the well regarded North Star and Red Lion pubs offering a touch of 'shabby chic'.

What the Owner says:

What attracted me was the location being so close to central London and local amenities, but in a quiet and green location.

The property and location both have a lot of 'soul' and would be a great retreat for someone away from working life.
