An impressively elegant, strikingly spacious and lovingly developed four bedroom family home, laid out over three floors and more than 1,300 square feet of living space. Plus a thriving, lush private rear garden. Design & Decor is classic throughout, with a wealth of lovingly preserved original features.

Chaucer Road itself is one of the peaceful, tree lined residential streets that have made Wanstead such a popular destination for city workers and families alike, you're enviably located from Wanstead High Street, with the bustling heart of this sought-after East London village just five minutes on foot.

If you lived here

You'll be enjoying a wealth of sociable space, with more than enough room for the most demanding of families and the most numerous guests. Your front reception pushes 180 square feet, with a large bay window and lacquered oak flooring underfoot. There's also a striking ebony hearth sat in a statement chimney breast.

You've more hosting options to the rear – your adjacent dining room and open plan kitchen make for a bright, flexible space more than twenty seven feet in length. The dining area has more lacquered oak flooring underfoot, plus a second vintage ebony hearth, but it's the beautifully bright, 155 square foot kitchen that's the real star; skylit with a handsome pine suite, Dublin sink and glossy granite effect countertops.

Here's also where you access your lush, thriving garden, flower beds bursting with riotous foliage and a pair of secluded patios perfect for morning coffee and al fresco dining. Back inside and the ground floor's completed by a WC and handy utility room, while upstairs your first two bedrooms are substantial doubles with gorgeous vintage floorboards underfoot and more ebony mantels. Bedroom three is a generous double, and just as beautifully finished.

The first floor's completed by the family bathroom, finished in stately sandstone with a classic freestanding clawfoot tub. Meanwhile, upstairs, the penthouse master bedroom is a pristine, skylit 190 square feet, dual aspect with leafy garden views and plenty of handy fitted storage. There's also an unusually generous en suite shower room, with another pleasant garden view.

Outside and Wanstead High Street is a mere five minutes on foot via the open green space of Christ Church Green, here you'll find a fine array of independent shops, cafes and gastropubs – The Cuckfield Arms and The Manor House serving up sumptuous Sunday Roasts the equal of anything you'll find in the City – as well as independent butchers, bakers and fishmongers. Wanstead tube station is less than half a mile from your front door and will get you directly to Liverpool Street in sixteen minutes.

What else?

- Wanstead is well served with quality local schools; you have twelve primary/secondaries in a one mile radius alone, all rated 'Good' or better by Ofsted. The 'Outstanding' Wanstead Church School is less than a quarter mile on foot.
- The wild wide open green space of Epping Forest is just a third of a mile on foot. Stroll through the greenery and you come to Hollow Ponds, where you can hire row boats and explore the waterways in the company of friendly ducks.
- Heading to the West End? Wanstead station will whisk you to Tottenham Court Road in twenty five minutes.

A word from the owner....

"We moved into this house when we were expecting our first child who is now 21! It has been a very happy family home, close to schools, park, high street and public transport making it an ideal place to raise a family. The house has adapted well to our changing needs over the years and has always been a happy place to come home to relax in. We have seen Wanstead thrive over the years and there is a great sense of community, and we will miss it."
