4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Heath Drive, Gidea Park, RM2

4
This beautiful home forms part of the renowned Gidea Park Exhibition Estate, which was developed back in the early 1900s as 'an exhibition of town planning'. Various leading architects designed over one hundred and fifty houses and cottages, and a competition was then held. Set in a pretty garden suburb with excellent links into the city centre, the houses are said to be 'some of the finest examples of the domestic architecture of their time'.

"Before moving here eight years ago we were living in London," says the owner. "However, when our two children came along we found ourselves not only craving more space, but also a more serene environment where we could all enjoy a much better quality of life, and that's definitely what we've found here. It's a place where we can enjoy peace and privacy, there's a fantastic little junior school at the end of the road – arguably the best in Havering – and we have lots of wide-open green spaces to enjoy. It's also a very convenient location as we have a fantastic array of shops and amenities within walking distance and I can hop on the train at nearby Gidea Park station and arrive at London Liverpool Street in half an hour. For us the location has been absolutely superb."

"The fact that the property is located within the Exhibition Estate was definitely a huge selling point. The houses are all very different, but all very attractive, and the one we purchased looks out across the 18th tee of Romford Golf Course, so the outlook is really leafy and green. It's a beautiful looking house and inside, despite being very spacious, it has a really cosy feel. Combined with elements such as the sleek modern kitchen and bathrooms, it features old beams, original parquet flooring and a gorgeous fireplace in the living room, so there's a really nice blend of old and new. And outside we have a lovely big garden with two separate patio areas for relaxing and entertaining, as well as a large lawn that's been ideal for the children. All in all it's a fantastic family home and we're going to be really sad to leave."

Favourite room: "I love the whole house, but one of my favourite rooms would have to be the main living room. It features some beautiful exposed beams, the big open fireplace and during the summer months we can fling open the French doors and open up the whole space to the garden. There are also double doors leading into the adjacent formal dining room so it's a great space for entertaining."

Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area: "The Exhibition Estate is like a little oasis. It's really peaceful here, very leafy and green, and yet it's also incredibly convenient. There's a lovely villagey high street just a stone's throw away, and the station will form part of the Crossrail route, which will be fantastic for commuters."

Memorable event (if not another favourite room or unique feature): "At the side of the house we have a shared driveway that leads down to our single garage, which is obviously ideal for parking but can also be used as extra storage space."

What they'll miss most / why they are leaving: "It's time for a new chapter in our lives, but it's going to be a real wrench to leave this house," says the owner. "It's been a fantastic family home and it's filled with nothing but happy memories."
