Guide Price - £525,000-£550,000 - Spacious and well-maintained three bedroom house for sale in the popular area of Leyton, with exceptional local amenities on-hand. Featuring a large L-shaped reception room with bi-folding doors to the garden, a well equipped kitchen, three good sized bedrooms, a well presented family bathroom and separate downstairs cloakroom.
You approach the property from the quiet street with resident’s only parking, but unusually for this area of London, there’s also private off-street parking to the front of the property, covered by a useful car port. The exterior is well-maintained with clapboard siding to the first floor and brick below. As you walk along the path to the side of the car port, you’ll pass the attractive courtyard style garden which offers privacy from the street, before entering through a wrought iron gate into a second outside space, which has room for a small seating area. The modern, high quality, grey painted front door has a vertical glazing panel and large chrome handle hinting at the quality fixtures and fittings and attention to detail to be found within.
Through the front door is a lobby with plumbing and space for a washing machine, plus useful worktop above. There’s also additional storage space currently used for a fridge freezer and additional wall area for coat and shoe storage. The unusual timber checkerboard patterned flooring and light grey paint to the walls combine to offer a welcoming entrance area to this lovely property.
Moving into the main hallway, the first door on the left leads into the well-presented, modern cloakroom which includes a vanity unit with inset handbasin with mono block tap and a matching low flush WC. There are light grey bevelled tiles to the walls and a complementary darker grey tile to the floors.
Across the hall from the downstairs cloakroom you’ll find yourself in the well equipped kitchen. Here there’s an extensive range of base and wall cabinets and drawers, with beech effect doors featuring an attractive arched raised panel. Currently set out in a U-shaped configuration which maximises the amount of dark granite effect worksurface, the fridge freezer is presently located in the adjacent lobby but could easily be incorporated into the main kitchen area. There are striking tiled splashbacks in cream bevelled tiles, which harmonise with the cabinets and contrasting dark grey tiles – which in turn complement the work tops: a clever piece design which once again highlights the thought that has gone into this property. Slate floor tiles and light grey walls are the perfect finishing touches, and the kitchen also offers high quality Bosch integrated appliances, including a double oven, hob and dishwasher, as well as a high grade 1.5 basin resin sink with mixer tap.
Back into the hallway now and past the stairs – which has useful enclosed storage below. The final door at the end of the hall takes you into the bright and spacious reception room. You’ll immediately be struck by the almost full width bi-folding doors which lead out onto the garden and really serve to integrate the two spaces into a single family living area – more of that later. The large L-shaped room allows defined dining and lounge areas, with the dining space to your right as you enter the room and the lounge area straight ahead. The dining area is large enough to accommodate a family sized dining table and the lounge area will easily fit a large suite or sofa and armchairs, alongside an entertainment unit and bookcases with room in the centre for a large rug and coffee table. Flooring is top quality engineered timber and decoration is in simple modern light grey tones, offering an excellent backdrop for artwork and a large mirror. There are also two large central heating radiators with attractive painted covers.
We’ll take the opportunity to explore the garden next which, as previously mentioned, feels like an extension of the living space and provides endless opportunity for entertaining family and friends. Designed for a combination of low maintenance and attractive features, there’s a lawn of artificial turf, which is inset with stone paving, and borders with mature shrubs. With its south-facing aspect, 22ft length plus the privacy and security afforded by its tall fences, you’ll really be able to maximise the benefits of this superb outdoor space. One final bonus is the chalet-style summer house which also has an electrical supply, making it ideal for a multitude of uses – from a children’s playhouse through to home office, studio or workshop. To the side of the summer house is a gate which opens to the pedestrian access at the rear of the property.
Back through the reception room and hall now, and to the stairs leading to the first floor. The attractive striped stair carpet continues through onto the spacious landing and complements the decoration with light grey below the dado rail and white above – giving a crisp, modern feel to this area.
The first room, straight ahead at the top of the stairs, is bedroom three which looks out onto the rear garden. This is a spacious single room which would make an ideal child’s bedroom or nursery and could also serve well as a study for homeworking. There’s a light timber laminate floor and light grey painted walls with a radiator below the window.
The next room to the left is the main bedroom. This is another spacious room with plenty of space for a large double bed, and its practicality maximised by an extensive range of fitted furniture including mirrored wardrobes, bedside cabinets with display shelves, chests of drawers and high level storage. There’s more light laminate flooring here, this time complemented by a soft rose colour to the walls and a large radiator to ensure that this is a cosy, comfortable room.
Back to the landing and note the two useful built-in storage cupboards before taking the next door to the left into bedroom two. Currently configured as a large single room, there’s room enough for a double bed and associated storage furniture to provide flexibility for a growing family. There’s a built-in double wardrobe and a large radiator, and once again the flooring is modern laminate and walls are a warm cream.
The final room at the end of the landing is the fabulous family bathroom. Here you’ll find exceptional fixtures and fittings along with a well designed layout. The modern three piece bathroom suite comprises of a low flush WC, a large handbasin set on an attractive vanity unit - with mirrored wall cabinet above - and a p-shaped bath with a large, fully-enclosed glazed shower screen designed to provide a spacious and safe shower area… all with the added luxury option of well-deserved long and luxurious soaks in the impressive bathtub. The walls and floor continue the high quality modern feel, with fully tiled walls in large rectangular slate tiles set in a running bond pattern and slightly darker floor tiles. There’s also a large high gloss chrome combined heated towel rail and radiator.
