Houses & Flats to Rent in Lea Bridge
Seven miles northeast of central London you’ll find the neighbourhood of Lea Bridge. With its scenic canal-side cycling routes, hand-painted houseboats and new-build high-rise apartment blocks glittering in the sunlight, you may not even realise this is London at all. Indeed, Lea Bridge had been largely forgotten about by the masses until 2016 – when its railway station, having been closed in 1985 as part of a cost-cutting exercise, was reopened to the public. Since the re-opening, Lea Bridge has enjoyed investment and regeneration from the London Borough of Waltham Forest in the hopes of attracting a new wave of residents. This has seen new developments fly up and reams of rental homes come onto the market, so Lea Bridge is increasingly becoming a renter’s paradise.
Flats & Apartments for Rent in Lea Bridge
The newest apartments to come onto the rental market in Lea Bridge are called Motion. These flats overlook internal courtyards on one side and the London landscape on the other. Dotted along the river as part of the ‘Little Holland’ cycle routes along the canal, these apartments are just metres away from green space and the great outdoors.
Houses for Rent in Lea Bridge
Lea Bridge’s residential streets are filled with Victorian-era houses that are affordable by London standards – in part, of course, because of the long-term lack of rail station. You’ll get good ‘bang for your buck’ renting a house in Lea Bridge, so you may find the homes here a bit larger than you’d expect.
