Spacious two bedroom ground floor flat for sale in Upper Leytonstone – large reception room and bedrooms, garage, communal gardens and lots of potential
A spacious two bedroom, ground floor flat for sale chain-free in Upper Leytonstone. The well-designed layout boasts two double bedrooms, a large reception room and separate kitchen – plus garage, private parking and communal gardens. Leytonstone benefits from excellent localamenities and transport links into central London. The property is located in a small purpose-built block of eleven properties and has a garage along with additional shared parking. The block is surrounded by communal gardens and there’s also resident-only, on-street parking to accommodate an additional vehicle if required. The freehold is maintained through a management company owned by the residents. Through the main entrance door is a large, bright and well maintained communal hallway with stairs to the upper floors. Straight ahead and down a few stairs is a secondary hallway which allows access to the rear area of the communal gardens – and affords an element of privacy for the entrance to the property itself. As you enter, you’ll find a spacious private hallway, which serves each of the rooms and also has two large storage cupboards, ideal for coats, shoes and other household items. You’ll note that the property is in need of refurbishment, but there’s lots of potential starting with the attractive mosaic parquet flooring. There’s also an intercom phone to allow secure access for visitors. From the hallway, the first door to the left leads into bedroom one, which is a large double room with views out to the rear gardens. There’s space here for a large double bed, bedside cabinets and additional storage furniture and the room also has a full height, built-in single wardrobe. Flooring is timber laminate and there’s an electric storage heater – which feature throughout the property. Returning to the hallway, the next room to the left is the kitchen, which again overlooks the rear gardens. Laid out in a galley style, there are currently two runs of timber-style laminate work surfaces with space for storage and appliances below, as well as room for a full size fridge-freezer and free-standing cooker. There’s a stainless steel sink unit and upper wall cabinets facing the window, and while the current layout isserviceable a renovation would transform this space into a generous kitchen suitable for modern living. Back into the hallway and the next room is the family bathroom. There’s currently a three piece bathroom suite comprising of a WC, wall-mounted washbasin and bath with an electric shower above. Once again, while functional, a full re-fit is required to bring this bathroom up toscratch. The next door takes you into the spacious living room. With its large window, there’s good natural light and a view over the main garden area and out to the quiet street beyond. There’s space for a large sofa, an entertainment unit, bookshelves and a small dining table. Floors aregood quality timber laminate and, in line with the rest of the flat, decoration is simple and would benefit from a re-fresh. The last room from the hallway is bedroom two, which also looks out over the main area of the gardens. This is another double room with space for a double bed, a chest of drawers and wardrobes. The decorative theme is continued with engineered timber floors and simple, white painted walls. The room could work equally as well as a study for home-working, perhaps with a sofa-bed for occasional guests, for maximum flexibility. A popular and thriving area, Upper Leytonstone has a quiet residential feel yet benefits from exceptional amenities on the doorstep. There’s easy access to all the services offered by Church Lane and Leytonstone High Road, including bars, restaurants, shops and supermarkets. Close by are exceptional hospitality businesses such as the Filly Brook and the Heathcote and Star, plus E11 Coffee Garden and La Rioja London tapas restaurant to name a few. The area is well served by public transport, with Leytonstone Central Line underground station literally just around the corner, less than five minutes away – where you have direct access to the city centre and can be at Westfield shopping centre in five minutes or Liverpool Street station in 15. The nearest bus stop is also less than a five minute walk and there’s easy access to the A12 which will get you to the North Circular and M11 in just a few minutes.
