Spectacular Two Double Bedroom Ground Floor Flat For Sale In Leyton

An exceptional two bedroom ground floor flat for sale in popular Leyton. There are two double bedrooms, an elegant bathroom and a fabulous family room with a high quality stylish kitchen and space for dining and lounging. Outside there’s private parking, a courtyard and a rear garden with a timber outbuilding.

The property is set on a quiet cul-de-sac and occupies the ground floor of an attractive terraced Victorian villa. There’s off-street parking to the front - a real luxury in this part of London - with a separate footpath leading to the porch.

Through the front door is a shared hallway which offers access to the flat’s own private hallway, from which each of the flat’s rooms are accessed. The hallway also has built-in storage and a bench with shoe storage below. Decoration is simple and modern with light painted walls and high quality engineered timber flooring.

The first room, to the right, is bedroom one, which has retained original features such as deep coving, an ornate cast iron fireplace and sash widows. There’s an alcove which would be the ideal space for a large wardrobe, with space left over for a comfy double bed and additional storage furniture. Alcoves either side of the fireplace have built-in bookshelves and there’s a large radiator below the window with attractive dark painted floorboards.

Next along the hallway is bedroom two which features integrated hanging and storage space in the alcoves either side of the attractive fireplace. The contemporary decoration offers light grey walls and slate grey painted floorboards. A fully glazed door leads out to a delightful little courtyard patio with terrazzo style flooring and extensive planting to provide a real tropical feel – a brilliant design touch.

The next door leads to the stylish house bathroom which includes a combined w.c. With hidden cistern and a vanity unit with a ceramic countertop basin – plus a bathtub with rain shower above, and additional handheld shower head and glazed screen. Clever decoration includes tiled splashbacks, two-tone walls in white and steel blue and real stone travertine floor tiles.

The final room at the end of the hall is the fabulous family room which is housed in a spectacular modern extension with large skylights, French doors to the garden, a built-in window seat overlooking the garden and another glazed door to the courtyard patio. The kitchen area features a long run of light work surface with contrasting dark flat panel wall and base cabinets, plus an integrated oven with induction hob above and a stunning teal green backsplash.

Flooring in the kitchen area is the same terrazzo finish found in the courtyard and in the living area is a continuation of the timber floor from the hallway, further evidence of the well-considered design and flow found throughout the property.

The private rear garden has a brick terrace area, which leads to a lawn bordered with mature planting and a further secluded, gravelled seating area in front of a large timber garden building.

Leyton is a lively and popular area benefitting from exceptional amenities. The property is situated less than 50 metres from Leyton High Road offering an extensive array of shops and restaurants with other hospitality venues close by, such as the Unity Café, the Bread & Oregano Greek café and the Horse & Coaches pub. The area is served by excellent transport links, with Leyton Midland Road Overground station and Leyton Central Line tube station being 10 mins away, as well as excellent bus services and easy access to Stratford International railway station. Leyton is centrally located between a number of London’s best public open spaces including the Marshes and Olympic Park.

Sellers comments
Tennyson Road is a quiet and very friendly street. We bought the house just over 5 years ago and have lovingly renovated it and done much of the work ourselves. We have now outgrown the property and are looking for something a bit bigger, plus a bit of a new project.

When we bought the property, it was in a very sad state but we could see the potential of the house, with a large private garden and its own driveway. We have added sound insulation in the front rooms, and new floors and have replastered and redecorated. We restored the marble fireplace and added another. In the driveway, we laid new setts and added new UPVC sash windows.

At the rear of the house, we have added an extension with a new bathroom, new kitchen, new boiler and all new appliances. We also built a bespoke bench seat to make the best use of the space and laid engineered oak flooring. All of the paint used is clay paint which is eco-friendly and has a nicer finish than regular paint.

We have totally redone the garden which was a mess of brambles when we bought the flat. I’m a garden designer and have added a new patio, a seating area at the back of the garden, and flower beds full of perennial low-maintenance plants which are wildlife-friendly. We now have so many bees and other beneficial insects visiting the garden.

There really isn’t anything that needs doing to the property! It’s completely ready to go. The location of the flat is really handy, just 5 minutes from Francis Road, a great yoga studio, and the best Indian restaurant in London (!) Masala India.
