Located in the highly sought after Capel Road in Forest Gate Village, this imposing semi detached home enjoys delightful, uninterrupted views over Wanstead Flats, allowing the 318 acres of open park land to create a sense of space and tranquillity, not usually found in such a central East London location. There is an abundance of excellent transport links into the city via Wanstead Park (0.4 miles) and Forest Gate station (0.6 miles) which will also be benefitting from the much anticipated Cross-Rail that will be running in 2020. Appealing to families too, there are also a number of local schools and nurseries within a short walk of the property such as Chestnut Nursery, Woodgrange and Godwin Infant School and Forest Gate Community School which has recently been rated excellent by OFSTED. The property is also situated only 2.5 miles from Westfield shopping Centre where you will find a wide array of shops, resaurants, entertainment and activities in the Olympic Park.

The main part of the house is believed to date back to the 1820's, which then later benefitted from a double story Victorian extension and a further single story extension to the kitchen completed in 2010. The property also benefits from a new roof and guttering that was completed in 2018.

On approach, the immaculate frontage, double bay windows and attractive Victorian brickwork, all help create a grand first impression and when stepping inside this home does not disappoint!

The extremely impressive accommodation, which is over 3100sqft., is arranged over three floors, with the extended ground floor accommodation offering two formal reception rooms, with working fire places and stunning parquet flooring.

The contemporary kitchen/diner and conservatory both feature bifolding doors into the garden, multiple sky lights and an impressive kitchen island, which is ideal for entertaining. The high end Neff appliances include a 90cm hob, oven, microwave / convection oven, steam oven and warming drawer, whilst the beautiful mix of natural colour units and heated marble underfloor heating blend well with the age of the home.
To the first and second floors there are five excellent sized bedrooms of which the principle two bedrooms have stunning stripped wooden floors. There are also four original fire places located on these floors. The superb master bedroom measures in excess of 20ft in width and 24ft in length and oozes grandeur with ornate cornicing, ceiling roses and bay window which overlooks Wanstead Flats.

There is a modern family bathroom with a separate shower and bath as well as a separate shower room located on the first floor and a ground floor toilet, which is very convenient for guests.

The rear garden mirrors the inside of the home being generous in size and impressive in design. The garden is 145 ft. and features a patio and grassed area as well as a beautiful mature pond and vegetable patch. The rear of the garden is a tranquil oasis that is very secluded with a large decked area, which was replaced in 2015. This area houses a large summer house and workshop that has electric power as well as an additional greenhouse and bike shed.
