House For Sale
. Sold STC
Charlesons of Redbridge are delighted to bring to the sales market this charming 3 bedroom house located in the ‘Commonwealth estate’ in Ilford which was also known as the ‘Garden estate’ due the rare front and rear gardens of houses on this road. The vendor has left no stone unturned in restoring many of the original features of the house when it was first built nearly 100 years ago giving this property a distinct and unique feel. The restored Edwardian feature fireplaces and stripped wooden floors throughout in particular really add to the character of the property, whilst the revamped kitchen and bathroom offers a modern twist.
Upon entering the property you will be met with a long hallway with the 2 separate receptions, kitchen and cellar running off it. The front room is spacious and cosy whilst the 2nd reception is bright and airy featuring double doors that open out onto the ‘must see’ amazing garden. The garden benefits from a patio, decking area, lawn and area at the rear to potentially plant your own produce. There are also a variety of pretty shrubs and plants in the surroundings. The current owner has fitted a bespoke kitchen utilising all the space in the best possible way. The dry cellar is an excellent bonus which benefits from multiple power sockets, lighting and plenty of space for storage – something which you can never get enough of! The 1st floor consists of 3 generous sized bedrooms and a designer 3 piece family bathroom suite. There is also a loft which at the moment is being used for storage.
This family home offered on a chain free basis is ideally located with a range of highly regarded primary and secondary schools within walking distance. Commuters out there will be pleased with the transport options available as well with Gants Hill Underground Station (Central Line) an approx. 10 mins walk away whilst Ilford Train Station (soon to be serviced by Crossrail) is also only a short walk away. The Ilford Exchange shopping mall is close by as well as Ilford High Street which offers the usual perks of: Banks, Post Office, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, clothing stores and more! The rear of the house overlooks the ever popular and gorgeous Valentine’s Park where you can play various sports on the vast grounds and even enjoy boating facilities in the lake.
This property also has the scope for further development with the potential of making this an even bigger family home (STPC). Extensions at the rear and also into the loft can be made bearing in mind the current precedent of other local houses that have been extended in a similar way. The front garden which looks stunning in the summer and spring months could also be adapted as a driveway for those drivers out there wanting to do so.
