Why move to Leytonstone, E11?
As some of you will know, Dockleys is marketing a new development in Leytonstone on behalf of the Heritage Estate Group. Leytonstone is an area that’s becoming increasingly popular with people in their twenties looking to move out of central and inner London. It offers good value for money, as well as a tranquil atmosphere, lots of green space and great connectivity with Central London.
Property trends in Leytonstone, E11
Property prices in Leytonstone tend to be slightly lower than in other parts of London, and we’ve seen a steady flow of people moving from Hackney and Bow to E11 in search of better value rentals and an opportunity to get on the property ladder. Family houses continue to sell in E11, but I’ve noticed more interest in one and two bedroom flats in the area as more young professionals move to the outer boroughs.
Transport and commuting
Leytonstone sits on the border of travel zones 3 and 4. You can reach Central London quickly and easily for work and leisure, using either the underground or overground services. Leytonstone underground station is on the Central Line: travel to the City in just 16 mins and the West End in just 22 mins. The overground is on the Gospel Oak to Barking Line, connecting North and East London. Cycle or take the bus or tube to neighbouring Stratford, Walthamstow or Stoke Newington.
Things to do in Leytonstone
E11 is located on the edge of Epping Forest and offers a slower, suburban pace of life than you’d find in other parts of London. Leytonstone benefited from the Olympic regeneration in 2012 and has since become one of London’s most creative and vibrant communities. The Westfield Shopping Centre in nearby Stratford is one of the largest in Europe, while the independent shops, pubs and cafes in the area are well-supported by the new residents drifting in from Hackney and Shoreditch.
Nearby Epping Forest has a wealth of walks and activities – a great way to get back to nature without straying too far out! The Forest itself is well worth exploring, with ancient trees and an abundance of wildlife. Take the little ones to Epping Forest’s farms and museums, or take up canoeing (or white water rafting!) on the river Lee. The Epping Forest area has its own visitors’ website – check it out here.
