Full description

A spacious three bedroom ground floor apartment on the ground floor of a secluded, purpose-built complex originally designed for the Metropolitan police. Surrounded by greenery on all sides, and with Epping Forest and the blue tranquility of Eagle Pond right on your doorstep, you'll forget you're living in London.

Despite the peace and quiet you have excellent links to the city and West End. Snaresbrook tube station is a half mile away on foot and will get you directly to Liverpool Street in just 16 minutes. Tottenham Court Road is only nine minutes further.


You'll be surrounded by greenery. Tucked away at the end of a secluded private street the Buxton House complex is set among tree-lined gardens backing onto Epping Forest itself. The tranquil blue waters of Eagle Pond are just around the corner and Hollow Pond – with rowboats for hire – is less than a half mile on foot.

Inside, the lounge/diner comes in at an impressive 190 square feet, with plenty of natural light flooding in through the patio doors opening up onto the grounds. Light floorboards are underfoot and the centrepiece is a lovely period mantelpiece. The two double bedrooms both come in at well over 100 square feet.

Wanstead High Street is just half a mile away on foot for a wide choice of bars, restaurants and gastropubs – from the sumptuous Manor House (great Sunday roast) to the traditional charms of The George, to the homecooked American cuisine at The Longhorn. There's something for everyone.


- You have private parking and drivers can be on the North Circular in about eight minutes.
- There's also on-site bike storage.
- There's plenty more fitted storage scattered throughout the apartment.

'For me the best part of living here is my lovely neighbours: this is a friendly community. We are surrounded by trees and the forest – my back garden is Epping Forest. You can walk through the forest to Chingford: see the amazing bluebells in Wanstead Park in May. A longer walk can take you onto Wanstead Flats and down to some great wine bars in Forest Gate. Alternatively you can take a gentle stroll down to the ponds, or to Wanstead for a coffee. Its quiet, calm green and the flat is very, very comfortable.

In short, all the benefits of London without any of the hassle!'
