Comments from the owner:
What do you love most about your home?
I love how spacious my flat is, especially with the south facing living room. The juliette balcony and big windows lets the sun flood in, making it a very warm and inviting space to relax in. The convenience of having 2 bathrooms makes it very comfortable for when guests come over to stay. The spare room can be used as a guest bedroom or spacious office. Ideal when friends and family stay over or those working from home. The flat is best suited for a young family or a couple. We are active people and the secure bike shed downstairs within the building, is a god send when storing our bikes.
Why are you moving?
We are looking to upgrade to a house with a potential to convert the garage into a gym. Being a personal trainer under lockdown, the gym is sorely missed.
What do you love about the area?
The transport links are a massive plus. The flat is within walking distance to 4 train stations - Stratford International (6mins to Kings Cross or trains out to Kent and beyond), Maryland, Stratford and Leyton tube stations (jubilee, central lines, DLR and various overground routes in and out of London). There are 3 bus stops just down the road or around the corner of the flat. For more bus routes, the main bus stations are located at Stratford station, which is 15min walk away.
We are surrounded by parks, just a few meters away. Two local parks are downstairs from the flat and The Olympic Park, just 10mins walk away. Great for outdoors exercise, picnics, park runs or simply a stroll. All very well maintained and with facilities for all free to use. e.g. BBQ sets, cafes, table tennis, children climbing frames.
Within the Olympic park is the Velodrome for cycling or the aquatic center for swimming. There are plenty of gyms to choose from with Anytime Fitness, only 5 mins away or Better Gym in East Village, the Aquatic Center or Copper Box.
East Village and Westfield shopping centre is literally down the road with many bars, restaurants, dog friendly cafes, shops, butchers, supermarkets, cinema, banks, bowling alley and much more. Great place to enjoy and have a good shop then stop for a bite to eat or drink with friends. It's a family friendly area too with plenty of entertainment within the shopping centre or playgrounds, climbing walls, and open space outside in the parks.
For sophisticated dining, I would recommend the Stratford Brasserie within The Stratford hotel. Ideal for those special occasions. For a more relaxed environment, you have plenty of restaurants to choose from. The neighbourhood is great for juicy BBQ chicken and the weekly pub quiz.
For culture, the Stratford theatre is in the Old town, also within walking distance. The theatre puts on various shows and comedy standups, making fun nights out.
Accommodation comprises entrance hall with wood effect flooring (evident through the majority of the property), leading into the bright and spacious, open plan reception/kitchen with ample space for both relaxing and dining, and flooded with natural light from dual aspect windows and Juliette style balcony. The kitchen area comprises a modern range of matching white fronted wall and base units with work surfaces incorporating inset sink unit, gas hob with overhead extractor and electric oven below, and further space for appliances. There are two well sized double bedrooms, with en-suite shower to the master, plus a stylish family bathroom with white three piece suite and elegant tiling.
The property is superbly located within easy access of Stratford, Stratford International, Leyland and Maryland stations, all providing unrivalled cross-London and inter-city connections, as well as numerous regular bus routes linking the surrounding area. The property is also ideally located for an array of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants as well as the impressive Westfield Shopping centre and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, also just a short walk away. The A12/M11 also offers easy access in and out of London.
