Built circa 1896, this classically restored late Victorian city merchants house is located on one of Leytonstone’s most popular roads, leading directly to Bushwood, on the southern extremity of Epping Forest.
For 28 years the house has been occupied by the current owners who have watched their children grow and thrive in this neighbourhood. Previously the house had been home to a single family who had commissioned its construction almost 100 years previously.
Entering through the original front door the hallway features the restored original Edwardian Mosaic tiled floor as well as such period elements as dado rail, picture rail and Anaglypta wainscoting, which appears throughout the house. To the left is the bright elegantly appointed dining room with original cornicing, a square bayed double glazed box sash window and polished Iroko wooden flooring.
The bespoke fitted kitchen features a central island workspace/breakfast bar, Teak work surface, stylish units and the same Iroko wooden flooring as in the dining room. Adjoining the kitchen is a laundry room with ample shelving and storage space, washing machine and gas tumble dryer with garden access.
Adjacent is the stylish, modern wet room with Villeroy and Boch vanity unit and Grohe fittings.
The large bright living room which has been extended to incorporate what was an original conservatory has french door access to the garden. This room has solid oak flooring and combines the original features with stylish contemporary decor.
The rear garden has been modelled as an outdoor living space incorporating seating and dining areas and a Welsh slate water feature surrounded by an array of evergreen flora, shrubs and raised flower bedding. Subtle lighting enables the extended use of these areas into the evening.
Upstairs located at the front of the house is the master bedroom featuring a square bayed double glazed box sash window with a window seat incorporating storage built into the bay. An additional double glazed sash window positioned alongside the bay window and over to the left enhances the light in the room.
There are two further generous bedrooms with built in storage and below dado panelling and a fourth bedroom which is currently used as an office /music room. A modern family bathroom completes the first-floor accommodations. All the first floor rooms have large windows, and the three main bedrooms have feature fireplaces.
We asked the sellers to describe their home, and its surroundings here’s what they had to say.
“This has been a very happy family home for 28 years. We love the location it’s a peaceful, quiet neighbourhood with no discernible traffic sounds. To us, there’s a real country in the city feel, with the forest and expansive green spaces literally on the doorstep. In our time here, we have carried out many improvements, converting the original kitchen to a utility/laundry room, retiled the roof using reclaimed real slate, we created a downstairs wet room and totally remodelled the rear garden to what we like to call our outside room. We truly hope somebody else will love living here, just as much as we have.”
