Lovely Double Room with Private Bathroom in Leyton, 2 minutes walk from the Overground, 25 minutes from the West End and the City. Surrounded by the Hackney Marshes, Epping Forest and the Olympic Park. Quiet, comfortable, private room.
On the top floor of our home in Leyton we have a lovely double bedroom with a private bathroom. The room is peaceful, sunny and has a large comfortable bed. It feels quite separate from the rest of the house and is a lovely place to stay.
You'll have access to a comfy living room/dining room and a brand new extended kitchen with large french doors, opening onto a very loved garden which backs on to a city farm (occasional donkey ears poking over the fence...). The garden is a good size and has two patio areas and a lot of vegetables.
You'll be living with us (husband and wife, Jo and Ash) and our 2 friendly cats, Peaches and Lyra. Jo is a yoga teacher and Ash runs his own production company in Clerkenwell.
We're looking for someone kind and respectful and is happy to live the quiet life.
If that's you we would love to hear from you.
The house is a 2-minute walk from Leyton Midland Road Overground station which connects with the Victoria Line at Blackhorse Road getting you into Oxford Street and the West End in just 25mins. It is also a 15-18 minute walk (or a 5 min bus ride) from either Walthamstow (Victoria Line), Leyton or Leytonstone (both on the Central Line) underground stations. Buses on Lea Bridge Road take you through Hackney and all the way into the West End with no changes.
Leyton is a wonderful area and it has even been named in the top 10 places to live in London by the Sunday Times. Check out the video on YouTube by searching for Leyton & The Sunday Times.
Amenities wise, we are 2 minutes away from a Sainsbury's, a lovely coffee shop, a Turkish restaurant and a couple of yoga studios. Pedestrianised and popular Francis Road, with more cafes, restaurants and shops is just a 5-minute walk. We are surrounded by great pubs, which are between 5 and 10 minutes away. There's a 24hr gym 2 minutes away and a swimming pool just 5 minutes away.
The beautiful wild expanse of the Hackney Marshes is just 15 minutes walk away, as is Hollow Ponds and Epping Forest. There are some smaller parks close by such as Jubilee Park, Coronation Gardens and Abbotts Park, which have tennis courts, places to sit and relax and kids playgrounds. Just 20 minutes walk away is the Olympic Park and all that it has to offer, from the swimming pool and parkland to a broad array of restaurants on the canal and in the village. If you fancy a trip to Hackney it's just a 15-minute bus ride away.
