RARE TO THE MARKET FIVE / SIX BEDROOM TERRACE VICTORIAN PROPERTY:GUIDE PRICE £1,100,000 - £1,200,000 This stunningly brick-fronted family home is fully refurbished to a very high standard with a spacious double garage to the rear of property with the possibility to fit three vehicles.

The Property
The first thing you notice about this house is the newly fitted original timber sash windows. Unusually, there is also a second door at the front of the house which opens into a hallway leading onto the cellar. We believe this would originally have been used for coal deliveries, but these days it is probably more useful as a handy bike store.

Once through the front door you find yourself in a spacious entrance hall. The ground floor boasts plenty of entertaining and living space, consisting of a large through lounge with feature fireplaces and high ceilings. You then have floor to ceiling double doors leading to a generous private rear garden. To the rear of the property there is a charming bespoke kitchen with huge range cooker and built in double fridge freezer. and utility room which also leads out to the garden.

Take the winding stairs up to the first floor of the property, and you will find three double bedrooms and one small double currently being used as a walk in wardrobe. The master bedroom also benefits from a grand bay window and fully fitted cupboards. There is also a delightful bathroom which has been refurbished to a very high standard with no expense spared.

Take the stairs again to the top floor and you have two further double bedrooms and a beautiful en-suite. Your notice that the stairs and hallway is flooded with natural light from the velux window and loads of storage space in the eaves of the loft.

The property also benefits from a very large double garage with separate rear access. which could be used as a garage or could be converted for anyone who wants to work from home or convert it into a gym.

The Location
Forest Drive West is a charming residential street in a part of Leyton known locally as the Barclay Estate (the famous Barclay banking family owned a manor house in Leyton, and many of the streets in the vicinity were built after they sold off the land). This part of Leyton is characterised by houses that are generally larger than those closer to the underground station.

Leyton High Road is less than a quarter mile from the house, meaning that local shopping facilities are easily accessible, and there are excellent public transport links with Leyton Midland (0.2 miles) and Leytonstone Underground (0.8 miles) stations both nearby. Also within a mile of the house is Leyton Flats and Hollow Pond, a part of the Epping Forest which is popular with walkers, joggers and anglers.

Our View
Very few properties of this style exist in Leyton, and fewer have been refurbished to such a high standard with no expense spared. We recommend this property for buyers looking for something a little out of the ordinary, and especially for those people who want to live in an interesting period building.
