GUIDE PRICE £350,000 - £375,000. A beautiful one-bedroom period conversion with a private courtyard and original Victorian features, all at an affordable price. The flat is situated in the Bushwood area and is a short walk to Leytonstone Underground Station. Liverpool Street is 15 mins away by Tube, and Epping Forest is just a short walk to the east. It would make the perfect home for a single person or a couple.
From the moment you enter the large communal entrance lobby with its high ceilings and beautiful mouldings, you get a sense of how grand this corner plot is. The high ceilings continue as you enter the flat. The hallway is L-shaped, with the living room and bedroom located at opposite ends, which gives the property a feeling of space and seclusion throughout.
The open-plan living room is at the front of the property, and mixes period grandeur with modern comfort. Its focus point is the original cast-iron fireplace, which dates from the 1880s and makes for a highly impressive feature – the decorative tiling is surrounded by imposing pillars and a mantelpiece. The room has a large box bay window with sliding sashes and modern wooden blinds. Some of the original wooden shutters are hidden behind the boxing, and might make a possible restoration project.
The kitchen area is at the rear of the living room, and includes an integrated Smeg oven and hob, overhead extractor, plumbing for a washing machine, ceramic sink, plus some neat finishing touches such as the solid oak work surface and solid oak units and doors, painted in Farrow & Ball. There is a wall-mounted glazed shelving unit for your spices, jars, pots and pans.
The peaceful double bedroom is at the back of the property, and includes plenty of storage space. The bathroom is en-suite, and features a walk-in shower cubicle with white brick-style tiling, complemented by a traditional full-pedestal hand basin, a low-level W.C., and heated towel rail.
The double doors takes you from the bedroom to the delightful courtyard, where there is plenty of space for outdoor dining.
Bushwood is a sought-after location because of its grand Victorian properties, excellent transport links to Central London, and strong community spirit, with a wide range of pubs, bars and local amenities. The North Star pub, with its Thai menu, and the Red Lion, with its excellent craft beers, are particularly popular. The renovated Ballroom hosts live music events and DJ nights, and the High Street will soon boast a yoga and pilates studio. You can find a peaceful retreat amongst nature in nearby Epping Forest.
Here are a few words from the seller…
I have loved living in the Bushwood area for the last 5 years. I was looking for a community vibe, and Bushwood has it in spades. It has a peaceful, village-like feel, yet with all the amenities I've needed. Since I moved here craft beer taprooms have opened, plus a lovely wine bar called To Be Consumed in the railway arches, and a shop that sells refillable items so you can go plastic-free. You can get great pizza at Yard Sale Pizza. I've really enjoyed swimming at London Aquatics centre/Olympic pool in nearby Stratford. And it's easy to hop on a bus to Hackney or Hackney Wick to sit by the canal.
I've always checked out the website Leytonstoner.london, which is a brilliant guide to what's happening in the local area, including cultural events, dining and things to do.
