Probably dating from the 1930s period, this attractive looking property enjoys a lovely yet accessible location close to Highams Park with its wonderful Lake and parkland walks! In past years the ground floor accommodation has been enlarged and remodelled to provide additional living space, with now the undoubted potential of a loft bedroom conversion, subject of course to local planning approval. The house sits in a large plot set back from the road and the interior features a reception porch, lovely entrance hall, two charming separate reception rooms with the sitting room having a lovely wide bay to the front elevation. A superb “Shaker” style fitted and equipped breakfast room, a sizeable home office/study, utility room on the ground floor, whilst the first floor features 3 excellent bedrooms and a large family bathroom/wc. To the front of the house there is a block paved drive providing off street parking and the garage, which has been reduced in size, now provides extra storage, including a loft space. A particular feature of this property is the wonderfully secluded rear garden, well established and offering all year round colour! This property is well placed for surrounding facilities, including Woodford Green with its attractive High Street and duck pond, together with a Central line station serving London, and Highams Park with its mainline station serving Liverpool St., Walthamstow Central and the Victoria line.
