A beautifully presented first floor, one bedroom flat in Upper Leytonstone: a welcoming community, excellent amenities and convenient transport links. The flat is set in a charming Victorian property on a quiet tree-lined street, and offers double glazing throughout, gas central heating, a share of Freehold and a chain-free sale. You approach the property via a beautiful arched porch with a period mosaic-tiled floor. Entering via the traditional timber and glass main door, you find yourself in a bright shared entrance hall with lovely original floorboards and high ceilings. The traditional staircase with feature newel post and handrail takes you up to the flat’s private entrance. As you enter the flat, you find a welcoming split-level hall which provides independent access to each room, and would look great as a gallery for your favourite artwork. Above you you’ll note a hatch, providing access to a small area of useful loft storage space. Immediately to the right, step up towards the bedroom area and you’ll see a convenient storage cupboard straight ahead, with the bedroom itself to the right. The storage cupboard contains the central heating boiler and would make an ideal closet for coats and shoes, or any other sundry items you wish to store out of sight. As you move into the bedroom, you’ll find a large bright space including a complete wall of inbuilt storage and well considered decor. The modern built-in storage, with white gloss doors, is made up of three double wardrobes with additional storage above and a unit of shelving – plenty of room for your clothing, accessories and paperwork. The neutral cream paint and fawn carpet are complemented by a beautiful wall-papered feature wall in complementing colours, and there’s space for your double bed, beside units and even a small desk or dressing table. The room has a central heating radiator and overlooks the quieter rear aspect of the property, ensuring a peaceful night’s sleep. As you return to the hall, you’ll find the light and well-appointed bathroom on your right. Here we find a modern white three piece suite comprising porcelain basin with underneath storage, low level WC, and bath with shower attachment. The dark grey gloss floor tiles contrast with the large textured wall tiles – set in a striking running pattern, with feature mosaic-tiled border above. Back to the hall, take the few additional steps up and your kitchen lies to your right. There’s a large selection of modern beech-effect wall and base cabinets with satin-chrome handles, nicely contrasted by the black/grey marble-effect worktops. The integrated electric oven, stylish gas hob and extractor allow complete scope for anything from a light breakfast to a sumptuous banquet, and appliances including dishwasher, washing machine and large fridge freezer are all included in the sale. The smart, modern theme is completed with cream ceramic floor tiles, and white bevel edged wall tiles in a running pattern with an attractive dark mosaic accent line. The last door, straight ahead at the end of the hall, leads you to the indisputable highlight of this lovely flat – the stylish generously sized sitting room. Natural light floods in from the delightful bay window, which is equipped with bespoke Roman blinds and offers the perfect location for a cosy reading nook or dining table. The two central heating radiators ensure this will be a comfortable haven to retire to after a busy day, and there’s plenty of wall space for your favourite photos or art, and perhaps a large mirror to make the best of the plentiful sunlight. Stunning light oak floors and a feature wall with beautiful floral-pattern wallpaper, together with its other fabulous features, give this room a classic luxurious feel. With plenty of options to arrange your desired seating, display or storage units, you can quickly make this lovely space feel like home. The property is situated in the popular Upper Leytonstone area of East London. While the immediate vicinity is a peaceful residential area, all the transport links and amenities of vibrant Leytonstone are just a few minutes away. Leytonstone Central Line Tube Station is a 15 minute walk and several bus routes can be accessed in less than 5 minutes. There’s easy access to the A12 which will get you to the North Circular and M11 within just a few minutes. This area was home to the great Sir Alfred Hitchcock and many local hospitality businesses have used this as their inspiration, including The Rear Window Restaurant, The Birds Pub and The Hitchcock Hotel. There’s also a host of other pubs and restaurants, including The Olive Greek, The Aquila and the highly-rated North Star Pub, which is in the nearby conservation area of Bushwood. There’s a large supermarket within half a mile and many other shops and amenities very close by on the popular High Road Leytonstone. This is also the perfect location if you enjoy the great outdoors, as some of the East End’s best green spaces are close by. Hollow Pond and Leyton Flats are a five minute stroll and Wanstead Flats, Hackney Marshes and the Walthamstow Wetlands Nature Reserve are within easy reach.
