The property is a terraced house which has been completely rebuilt to a very high standard. It has a small courtyard garden. It is situated 100 meters from the Wanstead central line tube station.
We are a retired couple. Carol was formally a school teacher and Robert a former public servant. Our interests include gardening, sailing, golf and travel.
We have a house in London where we stay when we are visiting England.
Our twin daughters live in the next street and look after the property for us.
We stayed at this property with friends during our visit to London. From our first communication with the owners Bob and Carol, they were prompt with their replies and answers to our queries. The house was in a great location, only a short 25 min train ride in to central London. The station is only a 2 min walk. The property itself is spacious and well equipped with everything you need, and accurate details on the website. This includes a washine machine, a well appointed kitchen with microwave, and full sized fridge and oven. Comfortable beds and plenty of room to store your luggage, make it ideal for those travelling for longer periods. The bathrooms would benefit from the addition of a hairdryer, especially for those travelling in the cooler months. There is a local supermarket, cafes pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance. If you prefer a bigger shopping complex, its only a 10 min ride to Stradford Shopping Centre. A few small issues stopped us from giving 5 stars, but otherwise we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. A great house.
