With its independent boutiques, coffee shops, bistros, butchers, bakers, greengrocers and fishmongers, Wanstead is a rare gem in London, retaining a village feel whilst being extremely accessible to Central London. With Wanstead Park, Hollow Ponds and Epping Forest all close by, you can escape the hustle and bustle of city life while being only a few short tube stops away from the central hub.

Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac but just a few minutes walk from Wanstead High Street, this stunning apartment is available for the first time in 20 years.

Located in Wanstead's landmark building you would be purchasing a piece of history that was originally a merchant seaman's orphanage, then a convent and finally a hospital featured in the 1970's TV series 'Doctor in the House' before being converted to apartments in the mid 1990s.

Close to both Snaresbrook and Wanstead Underground stations on the Central Line, this first floor apartment really is a commuter's dream home. With easy access to Central London or Canary Wharf and with excellent motorway links, this apartment also boasts over 1600 square feet of space!

Thoughtfully redesigned by the current owners, this period conversion has the feel of a luxury spa hotel whilst retaining a wealth of character features including spectacular domed ceilings and original Crittal windows.

Attention to detail has been given to the lighting and technology with the property also benefiting from CAT 5 cabling and underfloor heating throughout. Beautiful, yet practical too, the design incorporates an abundance of useful storage space.

Loft style apartments, especially of this calibre, are extremely rare in this area of London and this stunning property is truly unique.
