This attractive 1930s family home with porthole and bay windows is in a superb location and has been carefully extended and updated over the years. It is near the end of a cul de sac that leads to Mansfield Park so backs onto parkland and is a safe and secure haven for children and pets. At the same time it is not far to Chingford Station where the train can whisk you to Liverpool Street in approximately half an hour.
Walking through the outer porch the first thing you notice are the pair of stunning stained glass doors that welcome you into the spacious entrance hall. The design is replicated in windows in the downstairs shower room and also in the dual aspect study/bedroom.
There is a charming lounge with a bay window and an impressive original fireplace which is just the place for a quiet read and to entertain your friends, while the modern family room is where the family is likely to spend much of their time. This has a trendy raised wood burner, hard wearing vinyl flooring and glazed double doors that provide direct access to the very modern kitchen/diner room and, when these doors are open, it gives the feeling of a large open plan space.
The kitchen/diner includes a central island/breakfast bar, a range cooker, a larder and numerous kitchen units housing an integrated fridge freezer, dishwasher and wine cooler. The spacious dining area has bi-folding doors to the impressive new grey sandstone terrace while an adjacent double cupboard houses the washing machine and boiler.
Upstairs there are three double bedrooms including one with a bay window and an en-suite shower room and another with a vast picture window providing wonderful views across Mansfield Park to the William Gurling and King George reservoirs. It also includes a large dressing area with fitted cupboards and a contemporary bathroom with a bath and separate shower.
The outdoor terrace leads down the garden path flanked by lighting, lawns and shrub borders to a second terraced area with a summer house, while the garage includes a well fitted office that is ideal if you are working from home but do not want to be disturbed by activities in the house. At the front of the property there is a driveway to the garage and off street parking for two cars.
We have lived in this delightful home for some 25 years and it has always been a happy, family home but we feel it is now time to retire and move to somewhere smaller. We wanted a place in a good location that we could develop and make our own so, over time, we have extended the property to provide the excellent kitchen/diner and created a bedroom with an en-suite on the first floor and updated bathrooms. The house has also been re-roofed, replumbed and rewired so new owners can just move in without having to do anything except install their furniture.
We love being so close to the parks and the reservoirs as well as the River Lea as there are wonderful places to go for walks. Nevertheless it is also close to the centre of town and the station for commuting to London and not too far from the airport at Stansted. Chingford is full of independent shops, high street stores, pubs, restaurants, hairdressers and beauty salons as well as a selection of primary, secondary and independent schools. While sports enthusiasts can enjoy golf at a variety of venues as well as rugby, tennis and riding in Epping Forest.
