Lovely ground floor garden flat overlooking the open parkland of Wanstead Flats. The apartment has 1 bedroom at the rear of the property overlooking the garden with a very comfortable super king size bed, a spacious living room with bay window, with wood shutters, a wood burner with plenty of logs stored in the garden,and stripped oiled wood floors. The furniture is mostly mid century. We have another reception room, a shower room and kitchen.

We have only recently moved in to the property and we have lots of plans to update and modernise it. However as it stands it’s very warm and comfortable even if it’s possibly not the smartest listing…..yet!

We are a 10 minute walk to Forest Gate station which has direct trains into Stratford and Liverpool Street with connections into central London. The West End is about 30 mins away.
We have plenty of shops and a supermarket clustered around Forest Gate station with a very nice local pub which does excellent food, as well as 2 coffee bars, a brilliant local pizzeria as well as countless other local restaurants.
The Wanstead Flats are directly opposite the apartment which is a lovely
open space and great for chilling out especially on a warm summers day.
Forest Gate itself is a very friendly part of East London with a large gay community, we even have our own pride organised aka Forest Gayte Pride!
