The Avenue, one of Wanstead's most highly sought after locations, is close to everything Wanstead has to offer and yet enjoys the feeling of space and privacy thanks to the wide road and large plots. Taking advantage of this location, this home benefits from being just 0.2 miles away from Wanstead's vibrant High Street and within close proximity of both Wanstead (0.3 miles) and Snaresbrook Station (0.6 miles). The centrality of this home also lends itself to being a fantastic family home, being within a short walk of all Wanstead's excellent nurseries and schools as well as Wanstead Park (1 mile) with its scenic walks and bike routes.

This detached home has been enjoyed by the current owner's family for over fifty years since its construction in the 1960's. The home offers a wide and deep plot, which provides a good deal of off road parking to the front, access to an integral garage and a large, private garden to the rear. Internally, the property is set out to offer spacious rooms with plenty of natural light and an airy feel throughout. The solid parquet flooring in the hallway continues into the generous lounge/diner, which can comfortably accommodate a good sized dining table and sofa suite.

The large windows and French doors not only provide a great deal of natural light but all year round views over the rare Grade II* listed Georgian summerhouse, which stands within the sizeable, South facing rear garden. There is a further good sized kitchen and separate utility room and a W.C to the ground floor in addition to a conservatory that can be accessed via the garden.


To the first floor there are four double bedrooms and a large family bathroom, with the master bedroom benefitting from a separate dressing room and large en-suite. The garden to the rear is incredibly large and split into two areas. The first of these areas is laid to patio and lawn, edged with mature trees, shrubs and flower beds. The rear of the garden is surrounded by a large wooded area with a circular flower bed forming the striking centrepiece of the space. Separating these spaces there is a rare Grade II* listed Georgian summerhouse with a lower grotto. Built in the early 1700's and once forming part of the Grove House Estate, this magnificent structure went through some considerable refurbishment in the 1970's thanks to the efforts of conservation charities such as English Heritage. The structure is now used for storage but with its impressive floor to ceiling windows and abundance of natural light it has previously been used as a summerhouse and art studio.
