A grandiose, five bedroom family home with cellar and fully powered outbuilding totaling over 2500 square feet. This is a hugely impressive property in one of our most enviable locations, with the wild green and blue space of Epping Forest and Hollow Pond just a half mile away on foot.
Incredibly, there's even potential to develop the property still further, with the loft space still unconverted, potentially adding a whole new storey and making this an uncommonly excellent investment even by high local standards.
IF YOU LIVED HERE...
You'll be exploring this thoroughly capacious property on a daily basis. It all starts with the stucco moulded entry arch and the front door rich with original stained glass, from here you enter the double width entrance hall with vintage floorboards underfoot and an open plan staircase.
The twin receptions on either side come in at an impressive 200 square feet apiece, with original stucco mouldings, picture rails, ebony hearths, ceiling roses and generous bay windows flooding both spaces with natural light. And that's before you come to the 200 square foot kitchen/diner and 130 square foot dining room, another pair of excellent hosting options.
The ground floor is completed by the first of your two family bathrooms, and a morning room with sliding patio door access to the garden, itself a sizable length of lawn with a raised, sheltered decking area off to one side and a spacious patio at the end complete with fully powered, 200 square foot out building currently in use as a stylish snooker hall.
Upstairs and you have four double bedrooms of at least 120 square feet apiece, plus a generous single ideal for a child, home office or dressing room depending on your needs. All are finished to the same luxurious standards as the rest of the property, with plush carpeting, dark hardwood floors and vintage ebony mantelpieces. Here's also where you'll find the second of your two family bathrooms, meaning rushed, stressful mornings are a thing of the past.
Outside the wild, wide open blue and green spaces of Hollow Pond and Epping Forest are less than a half mile on foot, for morning jogs, evening strolls, picnics and row boat hire on lazy summer afternoons. The Sir Alfred Hitchcock Hotel, named after one of our borough's most famous sons, is also well worth a visit if you fancy sipping a quiet pint while looking out over the ponds. It's just a half mile on foot.
- You have an excellent selection of local schools, with seventeen within a one mile radius rated 'Good' or 'Outstanding' by Ofsted.
- Leytonstone tube station is just a twelve minute walk and will get you directly to Liverpool Street, for the City, in fourteen minutes. Or head to Oxford Circus, for the West End, in just twenty five minutes direct.
