A word from the owner.....
When we moved into the property almost eight years ago, we were
having quite a challenging time and moving into our home in
Wanstead from West London was a real turning point for us. Not long
after moving in we got our beautiful dog, Indy and were able to
immediately enjoy all of the local parks and green spaces on our
doorstep whilst noticing how friendly and neighbourly everyone was.
We immediately felt at home, and what was already a lovely high
street with a villagey feel just continued to get better and better
over the years.
There are a number of local pubs, restaurants and coffee shops
within a 5 minute walk or less from our house...not to mention a
babysitting neighbour that enables us to enjoy them. And, as if The
Ginger Pig, local fishmonger, organic greengrocers and bakeries
aren‘t enough, there is also a local farmers market that pops up on
the first Sunday of every month to enjoy on a sunny day the
atmosphere on the high street and local green is
bustling with activity. All of that combined with the close
proximity to Wanstead and Snarebrook tube stations which enable you
to get into the city and Westfield Shopping Centre within 20 30
minutes means that you would be hard pushed to find a better
location in London.
