EweMove - BUY ME! A beautifully presented and lovingly cared for a double bedroom, early Victorian family home situated on the northernmost end of Katherine Road, moments from the tranquillity of Wanstead Flats, excellent transport links and offering a modern refurbishment with period aesthetics.

The accommodation is a generous double bedroom maisonette with a garden and large cellar that has recently had an immaculate makeover. With the advantage of the pretty garden to the rear, this lovely home is ready to be lived in.

This Victorian property totals over 931 sq ft internally across the cellar and ground floor and offers an imposing frontage with an arched doorway, red brickwork and triple bay windows. Extremely well presented throughout, and arranged over two floors, the property retains many period features including wooden floors to the reception room, hallway and bedroom, shutters, recently installed column radiators, original skirting and a fireplace in the reception room. Complementing these are contemporary touches including built-in shelving, overhauled bathroom with a walk-in rain shower, cleverly designed kitchen to maximise space and unique design elements.

The reception room is occupied by the original bay window with double glazing that faces the sunset each evening, exceptionally high ceilings framed with cornicing, picture rails that run the length of the room, an ornate fireplace, built-in shelving, built-in skirting storage and wooden flooring. The hallway that runs the length of the property comprises stripped wooden flooring, a vertical column radiator that adds pleasing aesthetics, a traditional pulley system for drying clothes overhead, bespoke corner shelving, the basement entrance and a separate storage space arranged as a cloakroom.

The basement itself is over 300 sq ft, running the width of the property and providing a huge amount of storage and/or development opportunity for further accommodation. Entering the double bedroom, the stripped wooden flooring continues along with excellent height to the ceilings, built-in hanging storage and double glazed window to the rear with views of the rear garden.

The bathroom has been carefully considered in design to allow the versatility of both a bathtub and a walk-in wet room shower with rain head shower, vertical column radiator and a hidden storage cupboard that closes seamlessly into the tilework.

The versatile kitchen/diner is open and airy with an ideal design for working from home (WFH), allowing multiple uses of space with a breakfast bar and space for a dining table or desk. Design features of the Kitchen include electric underfloor heating, highly durable and sustainable cork flooring, double Belfast sink, SMEG range cooker with attractive extraction, bespoke machined cabinet doors and open shelving, clever use of breakfast bar as further storage, ample USB sockets, hidden waste bins and plenty of natural light from the large double glazed window. A new combi boiler has been fitted recently along with brand new radiators.

Following on, a porch provides access to the separate W/C, with a two-piece suit, cork floorboards and designer decoration from Cole & Son. The porch then leads to the private garden that reaches 35 ft, catching the morning sun for breakfast and evening sun for al fresco dining, where you'll be surrounded by mature, low maintenance fruit-bearing bushes and flowering shrubs carefully planted by the current owners.

The accommodation is an extremely generous double bedroom maisonette with a garden and large cellar that has recently had an immaculate makeover. With the advantage of the pretty garden to the rear, this lovely home could be moved into without any further expense.

Katherine Road is close to a range of fantastic transport links including Forest Gate station (just 0.5 miles - Elizabeth Line / Crossrail), Woodgrange Park Station (0.5 miles - Overground). Both Upton Park & East Ham (District / Hammersmith & City lines) stations are approx 0.6 miles away which offers direct access into the City of London. The property is just moments away from Forest Gate with an impressive mix of eating and drinking establishments continuously being added to as more residents are attracted by the Crossrail and further housing. Green Street, Woodgrange Road and the Arches are a short walk offering a variety of independent shops, bars and restaurants. The property is within a short walking distance to the popular and extensive Wanstead flats, Epping Forest and Plashet parks.
