Perks for the Parents

This classic and beautifully decorated Victorian terraced house is well set up for a family stay in London, with large spacious rooms throughout and green spaces nearby. The city is reachable in under an hour. There is a good size family bathroom and a separate downstairs toilet. There is also a large master bedroom with excellent views across Wanstead Flats, and an almost unbroken tree line. A good size playground is just a moments walk away.

Why Kids Love it

Kids of all ages love the space this house offers. There is room for energetic kids to play in the garden, or cross over the street to the wide open space of Wanstead Flats. Walk for just a few moments to discover the swings and slides of the local playground. There are plenty of toys and books for under fives. A crib and a child's bed, a baby bath, and a high chair are available if needed. There is a separate play area for kids in the lounge.

Things to Know

The house is fully set up to provide parents with a worry-free stay. Stair gates are in place at the top and bottom of the stairs and all upstairs windows are fitted with child-proof safety catches, as are all kitchen cupboards. There is ample on street parking space on this quiet street opposite one of London's largest green spaces. Car hire is useful but not essential - the area is well connected to the city center by public transport. The closest airport is London Stansted, around 35 minutes away by car.

About the Location

The residence is in Forest Gate, a friendly family area close to plenty of green space and yet 45 minutes from Covent Garden and the West End of the city. The location combines the feel of the English countryside with easy access to central London. Forest Gate has a weekly food market, every Saturday morning, as well as child-friendly cafes. Forest Gate train station is under 10 minutes’ walk from the house with direct links to Liverpool Street station and just a 4-minute ride to Stratford station, the shopping centre and the Olympic Park.

Accommodation Details

This 4 bedroom Victorian terraced house has a large lounge-diner with views across Wanstead Flats, and a separate kitchen-diner which overlooks a secluded south-facing garden. There are 3 double bedrooms and 1 single bedroom; which makes a perfect nursery room for young children. The house is double glazed throughout and has gas central heating. There are 2 bathrooms, with bathtub and shower, and there is a large part-decked back garden with lawn, seating area and BBQ.

Style Notes

Bright and beautiful, with historic touches. The home has original Victorian tiles in the hallway, and a number of restored features such as ceiling roses and modern chandeliers. It is decorated in a range of traditional Victorian colors. The kitchen and bathroom benefit from modern features, such as a fitted dishwasher, 2 ovens, a large fridge freezer, and wooden worktops. We love the space and light, and the classic style.

Forest Gate, London

An East London delight

One of East London’s most up-and-coming areas, Forest Gate is under 15 minutes from Liverpool Street station in the heart of the city and yet is leafy and green with a strong sense of community. Play football on Wanstead Flats, buy your groceries at the Saturday food market or discover the Olympic Park in Stratford, the city's newest park, which is only a short train ride away.
