Tenure: Freehold


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 £995,000, please contact Douglas Allen.


This is one of a kind as it is an exceptional house in the Barking area just off Longbridge Road close to Barking Park and Barking Station.

The property is link-detached Victorian style with an attached garage to the side and there is also a driveway to accommodate 2/3 cars.

As you walk up to the property you cannot escape the size of it as it really has the kerb appeal. Walking through the front door you enter a grand hallway with high ceilings, period features and parquet flooring.

The room sizes are very impressive and have to be viewed in person to appreciate the character.

The original stain glass windows are magnificent and allow in a variety of colour to flow through the house as the sun is shines throughout.

The property has been extended into the loft space which has given it seven bedrooms in total on the first and second floor and a study room.

On the ground floor there is a large drawing room, separate lounge and dining room, a kitchen/breakfast room with the added addition of a sun room.

The garden has been landscaped and well kept and also has a secret bomb shelter hidden away!

What the Owner says:

We fell in love with this property as soon as we saw it from the outside. It was the largest property we have seen in the area and liked the Victorian look to it.

As we walked through the front door, we loved the character, the rooms sizes and the potential.

Over time we have extended the property and utilised the substantial loft and created three additional bedrooms and an en-suite.

We have taken great care to incorporate the period features and modern conveniences, making this a lovely family house.
