Our flat is unique for London, in the sense that while you're in Zone 3 and under a 5 minute walk from a tube station, you aren't facing directly into another building but rather, you're looking over a big open playground only occupied during school hours on one side, and leafy trees that provide a private balcony. To add to that, all our rooms have large floor to ceiling north and east-facing windows, which bring in the beautiful morning sunshine in the master bedroom, and a lovely sunset in our third bedroom.
Like a lot of Londoners, our jobs no longer require a full-time presence in the office, and our days of regular partying are quite far behind us, so we're accelerating our move to the countryside with the possibility of starting a family.
This area brings together the diversity of London and the community feel of a suburb. We've reconnected with cuisines we were never able to find ingredients for anywhere else, we've started a 5-a-side football team and even enjoyed the pubs, cafes and parks of nearby areas like East Ham and Forest Gate. You're also really close to Wanstead Park, which makes for a great morning walk filled with wildlife that you wouldn't expect in Zone 3.
