GUIDE PRICE £450,000 - £475,000. If you're looking for a two bedroom flat in Leyton with a bit of a difference, then this Abraham maisonette is an absolute 'must view' for you. These character-filled flats are a particularly evocative feature of the Leyton area, and this property comes with its own private back garden and benefits from being within a 15 minute walk of three local train stations and the thriving social hub of the local community.
Greeted by a small front garden, you enter the maisonette via the private external door, turning an immediate right into the long entrance hall with its gorgeous mosaic floor tiles and a small window to keep things nice and bright. Follow the carpeted stairs up into the heart of this lovely home and you'll find the living/reception room at the very front of the property – just double back down the landing and enter the end door to your left.
A spacious living area bathed in beautiful natural light thanks to the large bay window, this airy reception room features gorgeous oak flooring and a traditional working fireplace – a great alternative or addition to the gas central heating on those colder evenings. A lovely fresh space, it also offers in-built shelving to the two recessed alcoves, providing plenty of room to display and store your books and treasured possessions.
Opposite the main reception room across the landing is the smaller of the two bedrooms, another bright room perfect as a nursery/child's bedroom, office or spare guest room, and also featuring the same gorgeous flooring as the living area.
Following the landing back down the three small stairs, the master bedroom lays to your right overlooking the rear garden from its recessed window area – the perfect place for your dressing table or a small desk. This room also includes some built-in shelves in its far alcove for additional storage and display.
Next to the main bedroom is the family bathroom, featuring a three piece bathroom suite and a stunning Victorian-style over-bath shower and screen. The bathroom makes the most of the light with its white tiles and fittings, and directly opposite you'll also find a handy cupboard for your towels, bedding or general storage.
Take a right from the bathroom and you'll enter what could well be the major selling point for this two bedroom property – its sensational, sprawling open-plan kitchen and diner. Made for entertaining and socialising, this dramatic and dreamy space has been carefully designed to combine practicality with comfort and versatility, with its discreet yet well-furnished kitchen that refuses to impose on the large dining area.
With windows to the side and rear aspect, light is never an issue in this large room and the modern fixtures are kept in check by the oak flooring and traditional fireplace, with its unarguable aesthetic appeal conjuring up images of cosy evenings with friends and family. With integrated fridge freezer and space to stow away your washer and dryer, this small but perfectly formed kitchen offers plenty of workspace for preparing meals.
Unlike many flats, a distinctive feature of Abraham maisonettes is that each has its own back garden for the occupiers' sole use. Overlooked from the sink, the back door leads out to 30 feet or so of private garden, laid to lawn with a small decking area at the far end. A wonderful and welcome addition to this superb suburban property.
Served by many bus routes and located within a 15 minute walk to Leyton Midland Road and Leytonstone High Road Overground stations plus Leytonstone Underground, this two bedroom Abraham maisonette also puts you directly in the catchment area for Newport Primary School, Norlington School and Sixth Form, and there's a day nursery nearby too.
With neighbouring Leytonstone just over the A12, you can explore all of the shops, bars and restaurants on the High Street, plus nearer the property you have popular eateries such as Sahara Grill and Marmelo Kitchen within a quick walk and the fabulous Heathcote Star which would make a great local pub of choice!
For lovers of the outdoors, buying this two bedroom property would put you close to both Leyton and Wanstead Flats and Hackney Marshes just a little further afield.
Here's a few words from the sellers....
'This property has made the perfect first home for us and we're only leaving as we have a second child on the way and want a bit more space. Since moving in we've updated the property in a number of ways: we recently had a new bathroom installed, we replaced the external staircase and added grass and decking to the garden and generally brightened up the entire property.
One of the best features is that being on the first floor we get light pouring in at all times of day. Additionally we have a unique layout with an external staircase out into the garden creating a wide open kitchen/diner - which is rare in these style of flats!
Outside we're perfectly placed to enjoy the best of Leyton, Leytonstone, Walthamstow and Wanstead. We have both a tube and an overground station just 10 minutes away, and an abundance of open green space - Hollow Ponds, Wanstead Flats, Wanstead Park and the Olympic Park. And when they open again, amazing pubs including our local, The Heathcote and Star (amazing roasts), The Northcote Arms (amazing pizza), and; the newly opened Filly Brook, not to mention we are a 5 minute walk away from all the charms of Francis Road.
For parents, our daughter goes to a very good nursery in Leytonstone and there is an outstanding primary school at the end of our road!
We have lovely neighbours, and there are lots of young families making the area their home, it's a real community. We will miss this flat and hope it makes the next owners as happy as we have been here'
