Situated in the heart of an old Victorian Philanthropic Children’s Home, this 1 bed conversion has fantastic grounds that surround the original chapel building.

‘When I first purchased a property here, my brother and I saw an opportunity to own a piece of local history’, says Mr S.

‘We walked past it for years, looking at it’s beautiful facade. Now 25 years on, we’ve had the chance to partake’.

Spread across the ground floor of one side of the building, you enter into a quiet corridor.

A semi-open plan reception has a straight view of the grounds, and comprises an integrated kitchen to the rear. A double bedroom with plenty of storage, and family bathroom, complete the space.

A grand green encompasses all sides of the original building, with a lovely outlook. Well maintained as part of the wider St. Leonard’s estate, former out-buildings that were part of the wider complex have been converted into beautiful houses.

St Leonard’s hamlet as it is locally known, is a conservation area for the surrounding roads, and is in a beautiful setting. Close to the centre of Hornchurch, all your amenities are less than a ten minute walk away.

The Fatling on the high street is a highly rated local pub, in addition to The Harrow, which is just at the end of the road. Le Moulin is a great local patisserie for your coffee and pastry on the way to the station.

Local primary schools include Harrow Lodge Primary School & St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.

Your big branch of Tesco Extra is just at the end of the road.

Hornchurch station, a 30 minute walk away, connects to the district line all the way to the city. Upminster Rail is a 13 minute drive away, for quick 25 minute commute into Fenchurch Street station. Local buses from the main high street take less than 10 minutes to Hornchurch.
