Petty Son & Prestwich are thrilled to offer to market one of Wansteadâ€™s most iconic, Victorian detached homes, positioned close to Wanstead High Street, which has been with the same family for 74 years. The home requires modernisation but offers over 4,560 square feet of living space with two further garages and potential to extend (STPC), a rear garden of more than 135 feet and period features throughout, making it a truly unique home within the Wanstead area.
Situated at the top of Grove Park, one of Wanstead's most prestigious roads, this imposing, detached home is a well known landmark in the Wanstead area. With a wide, deep frontage and garage either side 'bookending' the property there is an abundance of parking despite being only 120 Yards from Wanstead's vibrant High Street with its mix of independent shops, bistros and bars. The home offers exceptional potential for a buyer to create a truly magnificent residence in a sought after location. With an approximate 4,561 square foot of floor space on offer, large rear garden and two garages there is plenty of opportunity to re-configure and modernise the current property, ending up with a very substantial family home, or add further living accommodation by way of rear extension (STPC).
To the ground floor there are currently two front and one rear receptions, all of which are over 20ft in width, and like the rest of the home boast high ceilings, deep skirting and original doors. All three rooms are serviced by the impressive entrance hall, paved with decorative Minton Tiles and beautiful central staircase with ornate balustrade. Leading from the entrance hall there is also a handy downstairs W.C and access to the property's main kitchen with adjoining morning room; an area that could be completely re-imagined by way of
re-configuration and/or extension to create a large kitchen/family room backing onto the substantial rear garden. Additional storage space is provided by the cellar, consisting of three chambers and spanning just under 650 square feet (Approximately).
Moving to the first floor leading off from the generous landing area there are currently six bedrooms and an additional study area on offer, however this was not always the case and the majority of rooms have been created by the addition of stud partitioning to what were once much larger bedrooms. If desired the current bedrooms could be easily restored to realise much larger bedrooms as was once intended by the original designer of the home and, though reducing the number of bedrooms on offer, could arguably create a more workable area with a much grander feel to it.
The two bathrooms to the first floor are a good size with one being configured to act as a main family bathroom and the second as en-suite to the principal bedroom located in the double height bay area. The principal bedroom also has an original door through to what is currently used as a study, though this could be re-purposed as a dressing room if desired.
The second floor, originally the servant's quarters, is accessed via a wide staircase and provides a further two bedrooms, both with adjoining areas used currently as a utility room and storage room. Again, this level has the option of being adapted to provide two bedrooms with large en-suites perfect for guests or older children, or as a self-contained area for an au-pair or long term family member with a kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom area.
The rear garden is incredibly spacious for a home so close to Wanstead High Street with a good width and depth allowing for a complete re-imagining of the outside space. The ability to add an outbuilding, play space, formal lawn and entertaining space without impacting too greatly on any decision to extend the home is a rare one within the Wanstead area and allows a family to make both the inside and outside area completely their own.
The property is also being sold with no onward chain.
