An unusually imposing yet beautiful 4 bedroom end of terrace Victorian house in a quiet road within Upper Leytonstone. Epping Forest and Hollow Ponds are 2 mins away but also just a short walk to Leytonstone tube station, the town centre, and Whipps Cross hospital.
This house was built in 1897 and has some additions not seen in other similar properties in the area. For example, the front door entrance path is an original white marble mosaic unique to Upper Leytonstone, the porch has a working pull-out canopy and stained glass windows either side of the front door, and the bathroom has a tiled mosaic floor under the carpet. The house also had early central heating and electrics installed and many of the (non-working) old pipes and porcelain and brass sockets are still in place.
Downstairs the large reception rooms have period features and 10ft high ceilings, and there is a big useable cellar, currently a workshop. The south facing back lounge opens directly onto the back garden and patio area, both of which are secluded and not overlooked. There are mature front and back gardens with a great deal of greenery, shrubs and trees. A side path leads to a private carport and garage (with inspection pit) which have a separate gated access to the road.
Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms and a lovely Victorian style bathroom, with a part-boarded 57ft loft space above. The house has been carefully and painstakingly improved over the last 17 years (for example the replacement windows cost over £34,000) and if circumstances were different, the owners would not be selling as for them it is the perfect home in a perfect location.
