The flat’s private balcony boasts a view of the entire pitch at Leyton Orient football ground
At a glance, the leasehold property reveals little of its impressive balcony view from inside of the main living area on the online listing.
These is because there are net curtains hanging fully across the floor to ceiling windows.
The net curtains help disguise the view inside of the floor to those sitting in the football ground stands, just metres away.
