Property details

Occupying a pleasant and sought-after residential turning, set behind a green, this substantial family residence features an indoor swimming pool and is between South Woodford and Snaresbrook stations.

The family tell us, “It was the location that sold the home to us; we are situated within a highly-regarded setting and we benefit from a good-sized garden with an overall plot of 0.274 acres.

We recall when we first came to view the property we were impressed by the spaciousness of the accommodation, especially the living spaces. Another key factor for us was the indoor swimming pool, it certainly had the ‘WOW' factor. Over the years, it's been put to good use, however now it is seldom used and needs some refurbishment to this space.

We have owned the home for in excess of twenty years. The layout has an emphasis on family living and entertaining, with the sitting and dining areas adjoining each other. It's a great space in which to sit and relax and enjoy the garden aspect, with bi-folding doors opening onto a spacious patio for entertaining during the summer months.

The kitchen area, with a spacious adjacent family/dining area, is the heart and hub of the home – family, friends and guests just seem to naturally gravitate to it.

The location has been everything we thought it would be and we have access to two tube stations, which makes getting easily into Central London and the City a key feature of living here. A selection of shops and restaurants can be found within Wanstead High Street and George Lane, South Woodford. A selection of schools with high reputations provide excellent educational facilities for the area.
