The Story"People passing by often remark on this impressive Victorian house, which has been something of a landmark on Roding Avenue for well over 100 years". This characterful house stands proudly in its own grounds and is surrounded by well-maintained gardens, a feature its current owners have clearly enjoyed - "it's rare a week goes by where someone does not comment on how handsome the house and gardens are, and I love walking up to the front door with hundreds of daffodils and especially when the camellia is blooming bright pink in late spring or past the scented roses and lavenders in summer,".A Unique HomeIt was the character and space of the house, its wonderful windows on Roding Avenue that first caught the attention of the buyers. "We were looking for a larger home with good-sized bedrooms and plenty of light and air. The high standard of the loft extension impressed us, as did the practical arrangement of the house over 3 floors - there's nothing quite like it in the area, we did a lot of research to find it!"Beautiful KitchenThe property is entered via a stained-glass front door into a central hallway. There is a cloakroom and access into the living room to one side, and the kitchen-dining room to the other. The kitchen is a bright space, with a door to the garden and a table for family meals. "We've had some great family get-togethers in this kitchen" he says, "and it's a great space for me to cook, with plenty of storage and work space, but with it's easy to keep tidy and entertain in as well".Stylish InteriorsThe living room has an elegant, modern feel, which makes it a great place to relax and entertain, with a solid wood floor, walls painted in Farrow & Ball colours to compliment the date and style of the house, with timeless on-trend styling touches. The bathrooms have been stylishly upgraded, and well-maintained solid wood sash windows are installed throughout.Excellent LayoutThe first floor of the house features the master bedroom, family bathroom with bath, separate shower and underfloor heating, and a guest bedroom. Two further family or guest bedrooms and an additional shower room are on the second (top) floor of the house. There is plenty of built-in storage, with 4 double wardrobes by Sharps in the master bedroom with matching bedside tables and desk, and further built in cupboards in the front top floor bedroom, second floor landing and under the stairs on the ground floor. "We currently use the bedroom at the rear of the top floor as an office, as it's been fantastic having dedicated space now that we are both working more from home" the vendor said. They have also used the rest of the top floor as a guest suite as it is relatively self-contained, but it would also make a great space for teenagers.Tranquil OasisThe property has gardens to the front, side and rear, and being fully detached has access to the rear garden on both sides of the property. The gardens have been designed to minimise maintenance but provide colour and interest throughout the year, with well-stocked borders, a stone terrace and a lawn to the rear of the house. A gravel drive at the front, allowing off-road parking, leads to a roomy single garage attached to the northern side of the house. It's clear that the house has been a great place to welcome family and friends. There have been a lot of gatherings over the years, and the vendors have enjoyed the sense of community on the street, particularly during lockdown. "This is a quiet friendly area, which is something of an oasis. We are in a convenient position for local schools and shops, as well as travelling into London by tube or out of the city on the M11 and M25".There is (lapsed) planning permission for a side extension, which could add another reception room to the property; this Roding Avenue house could become an even more exciting home in the future, but for the current owners it has already been nothing but a pleasure - "it has been a lovely pla
