What do you want in a family home? Well, we suspect high on the list of essentials would be plenty of communal space for all the family to enjoy, together with lots of bedroom space upstairs so that all the junior members of the family can have their own room, and probably something that you can move straight into without having to do any renovation work. If that sounds like your wish list, then you might very well want to have a look at this lovely Victorian terraced house. Beautifully presented by the current owners, this will become a long term and well-loved family home. On the ground floor there is a real sense of space, thanks to the open plan arrangement of the rooms and the neutral colour scheme. The through lounge has plenty of space for dining and relaxing alike, as well as some exquisite features, like the period fireplace and the achingly beautiful stained glass in the bay window. The modern fitted kitchen is certain to become the hub of this home, particularly as it leads seamlessly into the cavernous conservatory to the rear, where you can relax whilst keeping an eye on the kids as they burn off excess energy in the garden. When they aren’t dashing around at a hundred miles an hour (seriously, where do they get the energy from?), there is plenty of room upstairs for them (and you!) to relax in, with 5 bedrooms (plus two bathrooms to add to the downstairs WC), thus ensuring that, as far as it’s ever possible, familial harmony will reign. And if that isn’t a good enough reason to buy this house, then frankly we don’t know what is…
Living here... - Have you walked past our office on Sebert Road? If so, you may have seen the “7 Reasons to Live in Forest Gate” on our wall. Frankly though, we could have put 70, or 77, or 777 or….OK, you get the picture. There really are a multitude of things to do in and around this amazing part of East London. How about bounding out of bed and going for a jog on Wanstead Flats or around Plashet Park? (Don’t forget to take the dog – he’ll be your friend for life if he gets to come along too). As a treat for all that exercise, why not stop for a coffee and a pastel de nata at Familia, maybe try a healthy smoothie from Corner Kitchen, or if it’s a Saturday perhaps partake of one of the amazing crepes on Woodgrange Market – they are seriously good! Suitably refreshed, there’s still loads to keep you busy, whether that’s nipping over to Westfield for a bit of retail therapy, reliving memories of athletic glory at the Olympic Park, jumping on the train to head into the West End (or work – boo!), or maybe just relaxing in the garden of The Forest Tavern whilst trying to decide on what to have from the menu. And all that’s without even heading over to the railway arches on Cranmer Road, where there’s even more to delight and tempt you, whether it be a pint and a burger in Tracks, or a delicious cinnamon bun or open sandwich in Tromso. In fact, there is so much to do, you’ll need all the time you can muster. Better stop reading this then and get on out there…
