This newly built, energy-efficient rental apartment is a fantastic find, tucked between the eateries lining Leytonstone High Road and the fashionable pubs on the outskirts of nearby Wanstead Flats.
Set in a quiet residential area just off Cann Hall Road, it features crisp contemporary white paintwork and high-quality laminate flooring in the living areas, warmed by underfloor heating and an air source heat pump. You’ll also find solar-operated blinds to the Velux windows and roller blinds for privacy to the windows elsewhere.
Nestled at the end of the road, the apartment’s variegated brick exterior reflects the quality workmanship found within. Step through into a tiled communal entrance porch, where the vaulted ceiling allows space for two bike racks. To your left, your front door opens into a spacious hallway with integrated cupboards and coat hooks.
Illuminated by a stylish pendant light, the white walls and grey laminate flow into a generously sized dining kitchen, where bifold doors open directly onto an enclosed courtyard with composite decking.
Above, the pitched ceiling creates plenty of headspace and draws light from high windows and dual Veluxes. Recessed downlights further brighten the living area and an Ultima kitchen with Howdens 22mm worktops. Integrated appliances include an oven with an electric hob and modern extractor fan, a microwave, and a concealed dishwasher and fridge-freezer.
Behind, you’ll find a large double bedroom with a big front window, Veluxes to the vaulted ceiling, and glazed double doors to another private courtyard area. There are also plenty of sockets and wall-mounted reading lights.
Return to the hallway to discover a bright and stylish bathroom featuring a glass-screened rainfall shower to the bath, a mirrored cabinet, a frosted front window, and a modern vanity basin unit and toilet.
IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD:
The beautiful Wanstead Flats and Jubilee Pond are just ten minutes’ walk away and provide a delightful environment to picnic, jog or simply surround yourself with nature and wildlife. Cann Hall Park is also known for its community feel.
You can always explore a little further on the weekend with a trip to Epping Forest or the nearby Queen Elizabeth Park at Stratford, which hosts a community track at London Stadium, an aquatic centre, and hockey, tennis and sporting facilities, all set within beautiful gardens.
Maryland station is an 18-minute walk, with Forest Gate train station reachable in 20 minutes. From both, you can take the new Crossrail link, racing you to Canary Wharf (around 12 mins), Bond Street (19 mins) and Heathrow Airport (47 mins).
You can also reach Liverpool Street in 12 minutes, stopping at Stratford’s major interchange just two stops away. Here, you’ll find connections to the DLR, Central and Jubilee Lines, plus retail therapy at Westfield and foodie delights in the East Village, including Mother Kelly’s Taproom, Fish House (for great fish and chips) and Appetite, an Italian butcher and deli.
Tavistock Road is just 19 minutes’ walk from Wanstead Park Overground station, connecting Barking to Gospel Oak via Walthamstow, with a handy change to the Victoria line at Blackhorse Road.
Local favourites include the Wild Goose Bakery for pastries and Joyau wine bar under Forest Gate Arches, The Leytonstone Tavern, Singburi for Thai, and Dina for craft beer and natural wines.
The Rookwood Village pub and Tromsø Scandinavian Café are also worth a visit, while Mora plates up authentic, fresh pasta. Many locals are also firm fans of Pretty Decent taproom on Sheridan Road around the corner and the Holly Tree pub.
Don’t miss the farmers’ market on Wanstead High Street, held on the 1st Sunday of every month and offering a wide range of food, crafts, and gifts from local traders.
Forest Gate’s recent renaissance has created a thriving community of independent local businesses. Among the other great places to eat and drink in the neighbourhood are Wanstead Tap for craft beer, Burgess and Hall wine bar and shop, and Corner Kitchen for daily breakfast, lunch and dinner.
