What do you love most about your home?
I love how light the whole place is, the big bay window and unobscured sunlight at the front and back of the property is amazing. The south facing and massive garden is joyous, everything grows so well there and it's great for entertaining 15+ people for summer parties and BBQs. In Spring & Autumn we like to stay out there with a glass of wine into the evening with the chiminea on to keep everyone warm. The greenway (walk/cycle path) behind the property means it doesn't feel like London, with no traffic noise whatsoever and just a big green grassy bank and a big perfectly shaped beach tree on the skyline.
Why are you moving?
I'm buying a larger property in the same area to live with friends and continue having a spare room/office for family to stay in when they visit from Scotland.
What do you love about the area?
There's amazing local greenspaces and my favourite parks are within walking distance, the olympic park is 15 minutes away and Zaha Hadid designed olympic pool is only 20 minutes walk away which offers great gym and swim facilities. The greenway, at the back of the property, allows road/traffic-free walking to both the olympic park and Victoria Park in about 30 minutes.
A classicly styled and well proportioned 2 bedroom maisonette with a private rear garden. Presented in great condition, with a recently updated kitchen and bathroom this will make a great home for a first-time buyer, or even someone upsizing to find the outside space and room to work from home that has been so highly sought after.
West Ham station, 5 minutes walk away, provides the Jubilee, District, Hammersmith & City, DLR and C2C lines which is amazing. You can always get a seat on all of the lines and you can get to the Square Mile (Fenchurch Street) in 10 minutes on the C2C! The street is quiet and not a through road, and aside from a 200m cycle on the street I can get to my office by Tower Bridge in 20 minutes on entirely segregated cycle paths (Greenway and then CS2).
The property is located close to Plaistow Road, Stratford Centre and Westfield Stratford City giving access to a variety of shops, restaurants and nightlife from both local brands and international chains. It also benefits from having very good transport links, with Plaistow Station (District / Hammersmith & City), West Ham Station (National Rail, Jubilee, District / Hammersmith & City, DLR) and Stratford (National Rail, Jubilee, Central Line, Overground) nearby. This gives you an abundance of choice to get you all over London with ease.
The property is located close to several green areas such as West Ham Park and Queen Elizabeth Park. The Greenway cycle path and walkway just behind the property gives great connections to some of London's best landmarks including Victoria Park and the Olympic Park as well as providing a link to the area's past - it was historically walked by Gandhi on visits to London nearly 100 years ago.
