An historic 8-bed Woodford Green detached home on an exclusive residential street, close to the tube and shops. Beautifully presented and lovingly restored, this premium property is priced to tempt those seeking a large family home, a multi-apartment .


The biggest house on the street, and formerly a builder?s show home, this large and spacious property is simply spectacular, blending traditional style with modern comfort over three floors of gloriousness. This detached home was built and has been restored to the very highest standards.
Original features have been retained or renovated all over the main house, and are complemented by the modern extensions that add extra space and style to the home.
The opportunities and options this property presents are plentiful. Choose to make it your forever family home and you will haves masses of space for even the biggest of families. The current layout sees bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchens on every floor, ideal for creating separate apartments. Also, the trend in converting properties into HMOs can be realised here with ease, in a home that?s perfect for multiple bedrooms all served by communal kitchen, bathing and living areas. The house has the added bonuses of outbuildings, one of which is currently a self-contained 3 bedroom apartment.
Given the options and anticipated demand for the property, early viewing is highly, highly recommended. Especially when you consider the popularity of the location ? a prime residential street in Woodford Green close to the Woodford London Underground station on the Central Line, with direct and frequent services into the City of London and Central London. Road links are great too, with the M11 and A406 easily reached from here. There are also shops and restaurants close by.
And, just to back-up that ?historic? claim we made earlier, the property was once owned by the local president of the Conservative Party Association. Meetings were held in the house and regularly attended by perhaps the most famous British politician of all-time ? Sir Winston Churchill.
