Guide Price £775,000 - £825,000. Offered with no onward chain, this fabulous four bedroom house for sale in Leytonstone is super spacious with a few hidden surprises, offering loads of potential for you to make your mark. Just a short hop from the bustling High Road, it's the ideal location for socialising, great food, open spaces, shopping and commuting into the city via bus, train or tube.
As you approach the house, the front facade has kept every original feature including a beautiful mosaic tiled pathway. Entering the property, you'll be struck by the wonderful height of the ceiling and the long hallway stretching through the property with the staircase lying to the right-hand wall. Before you reach the staircase, you'll see the first reception room is on your left.
Currently being used as a combined dining/living area, it would make a wonderful family living space with plenty of room for a corner sofa, large television, and a good deal of storage, display units or bookcases. This still leaves capacity for the kids to have an area to study or play, and a space for you all to relax together. A large front-aspect bay window and additional window to the rear ensures this room is always a bright and airy space.
At the rear of this room is the entrance to a wooden clad kitchenette. Either restoration or renovation could work well here. The wood could be treated to bring it up to scratch or it could simply be taken down, plastered, and painted to create modern lines and a lighter feel. The possibilities for renovation here are endless but essential to form a modern functioning kitchen. There's also a utility room in the form of a lean-to currently being used as the main kitchen area. A knock-through would create a beautifully light space for cooking and entertaining – or on the other hand, keeping the washing space separate could be useful on school sports days, after long walks in the local outdoor spaces or even as somewhere to wipe down the dog if you're animal lovers.
Speaking of kids and dogs, the garden may be in need of some love but it offers so much potential it's quite exciting – and at around 60 feet long, there really is so much space to play with. With the right attention to detail, the conservatory would be a perfect place to sit and admire your green fingered handiwork. With well established trees and shrubbery, simply mowing, trimming, and weeding would make it a usable family space. There's also a working outdoor toilet, which is great for summer days and evening hosting.
Returning to the hallway and past a beautiful curved wall feature - opposite which is some original floor-to-ceiling built in storage - is the second reception room. With its large French doors and masses of natural light, this room is perfect for a family dining area. Alternatively, it could easily be a gaming or play room, home gym or large office space. The French doors open into a rear lean-to conservatory. Just waiting for renovation, a refurbishment coupled with the correct lighting this could be transformed into a dynamic and lively entertaining area – a home bar anyone?!
Before we head upstairs, there's also access to a good sized cellar under the stairs. With decent head room, it could be converted into a usable workshop, office, or simply used as storage space. The choice is yours.
We climb the stairs onto the landing where we find all four bedrooms and the bathroom. At the front of the house lies the larger master bedroom which has a double and a single window filling this beautiful space with natural light. The scope here is huge. There's room for a king size bed, dressing table, comfy chair and more: it could even accommodate an en suite should you be so inclined. There's a chimney breast on the entrance wall which is a lovely feature and would allow for some beautiful built-in wardrobes or storage cupboards if you wanted to maximise the footprint of this already impressive space.
The next bedroom is smaller but still of decent proportions. It would be a splendid office, child's playroom, or bedroom. It still contains a small original wardrobe, perfect to store the office supplies or keep the toys out of view. The room benefits from the natural light and high ceilings that echoes throughout the whole house and has its original sash windows still in place.
The bathroom has been fitted as wet room, installed with function and practicality in mind for the previous owner. Ease of use and safety has been paramount here with handrails and walk in shower included.
The third bedroom is currently in use as a storage room. After some redecoration and a little work it would be ideal for an office room, study, child's bedroom or even a nursery for those growing family needs.
The rear bedroom looks out over the garden through large original bay windows. This would be an excellent kid's or guest bedroom with some modernisation, giving you the opportunity to totally re-imagine the space. There's even the possibility to knock through to the third bedroom to create a teenager's dream hang-out and bedroom in one.
Located just off Leytonstone High Road, this property is central to a popular vibrant area, buzzing with cafes, bars and restaurants. All of your daily and weekly shopping needs can be easily met, and you also have good schools, GP surgeries, gyms and a Post Office on hand. Situated a short walk from both Leytonstone High Road Station and Leytonstone Station for easy commutes, it's also served by plenty of local bus routes and offers access to a variety of sprawling open spaces in the local neighbourhood.
A few words from the seller…..
'This has a been a family home for most of my life and is being sold on behalf of my late mother. We love the area, and as I also live on the same road I can say that one of best things about living here are the lovely neighbours we have, as well as the convenient location'.
