An astonishingly spacious and perfectly placed gem of a five bedroom family home. Laid out across three floors with twin bathrooms, private rear garden and cellar, this substantial Victorian terrace is just moments from Leyton tube, Hackney Marshes and all the Olympic legacy delights of Stratford.
With the generous proportions of the period plus that comprehensively converted loft, you have a huge amount of space to make your own, plus plenty of original features you'll want to keep.
If you lived here
You'll have well over 1600 square feet of perfectly located living space to call your own, with your huge bay fronted through lounge and lengthy kitchen/diner (complete with its own bay) providing a wealth of sociable space for welcoming friends and family. Design & Decor may require some personalisation here and there, but fundamentals are strong with blonde hardwood running underfoot in the dual aspect lounge and timeless parquet flooring in the kitchen/diner.
Your rear garden's an expansive, zero-maintenance courtyard, ready and waiting for some imaginative green fingered touches; a scattering of pots, a raised deck, a kitchen garden or pergola. The only limit is your imagination. Head upstairs to find three substantial double bedrooms ranging from 100 to 180 square feet, plushly carpeted, characterfully finished and perfect for families of all sizes. Your first bathroom's spacious too, with a large, L-shaped tub.
Finally, your loft conversion offers a 200 square foot penthouse master bedroom, dual aspect with plenty of natural light and rooftops views, as well as plenty of under eaves storage so you'll have no trouble finding a place for everything. Here's also where you'll find your second bathroom, smartly finished with oversized rainfall shower, and bedroom number five, yet another double and the ideal home working space.
Outside, and among the many sought-after destinations on your doorstep is East Village, the former Olympic Athletes' village reimagined as 'London's Coolest Postcode'. A little over ten minutes' walk, here you'll find a wide range of independent shops and traders, wining and dining establishments, gyms and fitness studios plus regular pop-ups and events like outdoor film screenings. Great for exploring of a weekend.
Even closer to home, you're right in the heart of Leyton here with the tube just three minutes on foot. From here the speedy Central line will get you straight to Liverpool Street in eleven minutes, putting the City around a quarter of an hour away door to door. For the West End, Tottenham Court Road is just nine minutes further. And of course all the shopping and leisure delights of Stratford's Westfield are just one stop away.
