At the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac, yet only a short walk from the High Road and a fabulous range of popular eateries and pubs, this newly built three-storey house is set particularly sought-after location with Wanstead Flats and both the Crossrail and Underground all within walking distance.
Arriving at the house, a communal tiled entrance set within an attractive variegated brick exterior offers space for storing bikes before opening into a hallway to your right. Here, fresh white walls and grey laminate flooring echo the décor found throughout, while a glazed door lets in natural light and opens to an enclosed courtyard.
Passing a modern two-piece WC, you’ll discover a huge open plan kitchen that flows into a dining and living area overlooking a screened garden (with a raised composite deck and oak sleepers) via bifold doors.
Along with a big window framing the courtyard in the Ultima kitchen – which features Howdens 22mm worktops – recessed downlights brighten the entire space. There’s also handy storage available in the cupboard beneath the stairs. At the same time, integrated appliances include an oven with an electric hob and stylish extractor hood, a microwave, and a concealed dishwasher and fridge-freezer.
Back in the hallway, the staircase rises to the first-floor landing, where the soft neutral carpet underfoot flows into two large doubles to the front and rear, lit by big twin windows with roller blinds. The front bedroom also features Velux windows to the pitched ceiling and wall-mounted reading lights.
They share a contemporary, spot-lit bathroom suite with a glass-screened rainfall shower over the bath, a modern vanity basin unit and toilet, and a chrome heated towel rail.
Follow the second staircase to the top floor, which is identically decorated. Up here, you’ll find a third bedroom with useful storage nooks, another Velux and a deep angled window with blind to match the bedroom below, and an en suite WC.
