An impressively capacious, sumptuously appointed four bedroom family home, with multiple reception rooms and lush gardens front and back. Backing onto the open green space of Wanstead Golf course and the blue waters of The Basin lake, you're still just moments from the bustling heart of Wanstead Village.

You're right on the edge of Wanstead's vast expanse of open green spaces here, with the local cricket and tennis clubs between you and the golf course, itself eventually giving way to Wanstead Flats, once the favored hunting grounds of Henry VIII. You also have the blue waters of The Basin, Shoulder of Mutton Pond and Heronry Pond within easy walking distance.

If you lived here

You'll be stretching out in more than 2000 square feet of elegantly appointed living space, perfectly located between nature and the city. Your capacious entry hall truly justifies the name, 200 square feet with a vintage hearth and mantel immediately to the right and the broad timber staircase to your left. The first of your reception rooms is handsomely decked out with dark oak underfoot, another vintage ebony hearth and, of course, floods of light from that huge bay window.

There's a similarly sized, 190 square foot, hosting space to the rear, currently in use as a bright, lengthy playroom. Also, at a jaw dropping 320 square feet, your kitchen/diner itself makes for yet another superb option for entertaining. Handsome sky blue timber cabinets line the walls and pride of place is taken by a large, timber-topped chef's island. To the rear there's a spacious dining area, dual aspect, with twin sets of patio doors and floor to ceiling windows, making for a bright, beautiful space and wonderful garden views.

And what a garden, a full eighty foot in length the expert landscaping makes it seem longer still. An elegant, raised patio gives way to a gently curving, lush length of lawn, flanked by iron railings guarding thriving beds, passed the raised timber cabin (perfect for all kinds of adventures!) and there's a second large patio, home to an intricate, expert interplay of raised beds, fire pits, fixed seating and a classic brick oven. It's all centered around your large, 360 square foot garage.

Back inside, and head up the timber staircase (with recessed lights on each step) and you come to a landing that's just as generous as the front hall. Your first three bedrooms are all substantial doubles, ranging from 160 to 180 square feet. Bedroom four is currently in use as a home office and features some impressive bespoke timber units. Finally, the family bathroom, as generously proportioned and finely appointed as you'll now expect, with a large tub, separate rainfall shower cubicle and twin vanity sinks.

Outside, Wanstead High Street is less than a half mile on foot. Not only will Wanstead tube station whisk you directly to Liverpool Street in a mere sixteen minutes, but the bustling High Street is home to an increasing range of high end, independent establishments. From sumptuous gastropubs like The Duke and The Manor House, to continental style cafes like The Larder and La Bakerie, as well as traditional butchers and fishmongers.

What else?

- Just in a one mile radius alone you have four primary schools rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted.
- As noted you have a large private garage, and drivers can be on the North Circular in around five minutes.
- With the loft space so far unconverted, you have the scope to develop this astonishing property still further (subject to the usual permissions).
