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."
