Overall Description

This is a substantial late Victorian terraced house in a tree lined residential street close to the centre of Upton Park and a short walk from the underground station. The property, owned by the same family since 1947, has had some work done to it in recent years including a new roof, re-pointed chimney stacks, a damp-proof course to the front, and a new boiler, while it also has double-glazed windows. However, it is in need of complete internal modernisation and yet has considerable potential for adding a single story extension to the rear and also a loft conversion, either to make a much larger 4/5 bedroom family home, or to create two apartments (all subject to the usual consents). On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a bathroom, although the third bedroom has been used as a kitchen for some years. Downstairs there are three large reception rooms, a shower room (originally the skullery), downstairs cloakroom and cellar. Some buyers may well wish to reinstate the kitchen downstairs depending on the configuration that suits their needs. The back-garden is a really good size, something of a blank canvass at present, but does have a westerly aspect - and there is a small paved front garden for storing the bins. If you are looking for an excellent development project then viewing is highly recommended. Probate has been applied for. The property is being sold with no onward chain. We have an Open House viewing from 10am to 12.30pm on Saturday 10th September so please call to book an appointment to view.

Please note that there is pay-as-you-go parking available on the street in between the residents permit spaces.

Location

This property sits down a tree-lined residential one-way street just a short walk from the centre of Upton Park, in the London Borough of Newham, and also close to its underground station (District and Hammersmith & City lines). The main High Street (Green St) has a good selection of local shops, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants - as well as Queens Market, the historic covered street market, - and there are plenty of other excellent amenities close-by. Local schools include the Upton Cross and Selwyn Primary Schools as well as the Lister Community School, Grangewood Independent School and Stratford School Academy. The green space of West Ham Park with its children's play area and cricket pitch is around a ten minute walk.
