A rare opportunity to acquire this truly magnificent Edwardian residence, positioned on a prominent corner plot in the desirable Aldersbrook area, totalling 4,118 square feet and boasting a wealth of original features, gated parking, garage and South facing garden.

Positioned on the corner of Harpenden and Margaretting Road in the beautiful Aldersbrook conservation area of Wanstead, this iconic Edwardian property is incredibly well placed for access to the scenic Wanstead Park (110 yards), sprawling Wanstead Flats (0.3 Miles) and Ofsted rated outstanding Aldersbrook Primary School (0.2 Miles). Manor Park Station, which is later due to benefit from Crossrail, is one mile away whilst Wanstead Central Line Station and leafy high street is 1.2 Miles away. There are also several bus routes to the surrounding areas easily accessible from the nearby Aldersbrook Road (0.3 Miles).

Reputedly built for their own private use by one of the many private individuals responsible for the grand buildings in Aldersbrook, this impressive home exudes unbelievable curb appeal, with a striking triple bayed turret, two private verandas and exposed brick with ornately detailed wood and stonework. Similarity, the furnishable entrance hall was built to impress and does so in equal measure. The leaded glass and stained glass windows and doors that welcome you into the house give way to intricate woodwork and mouldings, deep skirting, cornicing and high ceilings, all of which feature as you continue to move through the home.

Once inside the hallway you have access to a large office fitted with bespoke shelving in-keeping with the character of the property and an imposing arched window stretching almost the width of the front of the room. Across from this you find the formal sitting room measuring 23 ft 7 at its widest point, boasting a solid parquet floor, fireplace and large triple bay turret currently housing a large, fitted window seating area. Behind the sitting room is the property's original billiards room, now housing the dining room but retaining the cabinetry made to hold the items associated with the game. Like the sitting room, the dining room also retains the parquet floor, decorative plaster ceiling and provides access to a private veranda via double doors. Additionally, the dining room leads onto the homes large orangery, original to build, with beautiful mosaic tiled floor which in turns leads to a large, covered storage area and ground floor W.C. The contemporary kitchen enjoys a good amount of storage including a large pantry area, but could be made larger by incorporating the current storage area and conservatory or potentially relocating the kitchen to the lower ground floor level (STPC).

The lower ground floor is accessed under the stairs and it is believed to have originally formed the original scullery and work area for the live in help, enjoying full head height and sizeable chambers. Currently the lower ground level comprises of two large storage rooms and a further two large chambers. The first chamber features a butler sink, black and red Minton tiles and door leading to a covered area with hatch leading to the first floor storage area, whilst the rear chamber, where there was previously a fireplace, still maintains three windows looking out onto the orangery.

The impressive first floor galleried landing is accessed by a grand central staircase, giving way to four bedrooms; two of which are incredibly generous double bedrooms measuring 22ft and 22ft 5 in length respectively. There is also a W.C, separate shower room with twin sink and large bathroom, but this could be re-configured to provide two large bathrooms or an en-suite to the second large double bedroom. The second floor, thought to be the original servant's quarters, houses an unbelievably generous master suite, with separate dressing room, en-suite shower room with twin sinks and separate sauna. With Dorma windows to the front and rear of the property the room is naturally bright throughout the day and there is further storage space easily accessible in the eaves.

To the rear there is a secluded South facing garden with side access leading to a secure, covered parking area and separate garage. Within the covered area there is an electricity substation, held on a separate title which is currently leased out.
