Enviably positioned on arguably the Villages' most sought after street this house offers a combination of south westerly light, tranquility, and far reaching cityscape views in equal measure. Featuring a deceptively wide double depth lounge/dining area with solid oak floors and stained glass interior doors this is a home to relax in. We could just imagine being curled up on the sofa, illuminated by the light pouring in from the sash window, as we lost ourselves in a good book. It’s worth taking a moment outside the house before you venture inside, as this property has bags of kerb appeal. It has beautiful sash windows top and bottom, as well as handy side access to the rear garden (more on that later). Directly behind the lounge is the modern fitted kitchen including Smeg oven, which itself is open plan onto the conservatory. This feels like a room that the vendors use all the time, perhaps because its south westerly aspect ensures light throughout the day and evening. On the first floor, you will find two bedrooms and the family bathroom (which complements the ground floor WC). The bathroom itself is beautifully tiled in white marble and includes a generously broad Italian sink. An ascent to the second floor reveals a master bedroom, complete with a balcony offering amazing views of the London skyline from Canary Wharf to Highgate. This balcony is, however, far from the only outside space this house has to offer, as there is a large roof terrace on the first floor, as well as a deceptively large rear garden, all of which of course benefit from that south westerly aspect. Here you will also discover the studio at the end of the garden which when combined with the side access, would make this an ideal property for someone looking to work from home.
... - ...and if all of that isn’t enough (really people???), there is a generously sized cellar, which means there is even development potential to this home, subject of course to the usual consents and permissions. A truly wonderful home, on a wonderful road, in wonderful Walthamstow Village. What more could you possibly ask for…?
Living here... - If Lou Reed had lived in Walthamstow (now there’s a thought!), we wonder how different the lyrics to “Perfect Day” would have been? There’s obviously no zoo, but he could still have caught a movie at The Scene on the way home. Instead of sangria in the park, gin cocktails at Mother Ruin? And as for reaping what he sowed, how about joining the Village in Bloom volunteers as they set about beautifying the area? Frankly, there’s tons of stuff to do, see, eat and drink in the Village that could contribute to a perfect day, be it coffee from Huck’s, a bite of breakfast at the Bakery, a light lunch at Eat 17, or a visual feast at God’s Own Junkyard. The point is, everyone’s perfect day will be different, but the great thing about living and working in this remarkable part of East London is that whatever constitutes your “perfect day” it’s likely to be found right here, right on your doorstep…
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Despite what people may tell you, Walthamstow Village was not invented by estate agents. It’s called Walthamstow Village because it was once exactly that, a village. Once the administrative heart of Walthamstow, the Village is now content to simply be the neon capital of Europe. An unlikely claim you might think, but visit God’s Own Junkyard on Ravenswood industrial estate and you’ll see what I mean.
When your mind has been blown by the neon, pop in to Mother’s Ruin Gin Palace and Wildcard Brewery. All three businesses are based on Ravenswood, making it the most exciting industrial estate on the planet. The Village is full of quiet residential streets that all have easy access to bucket loads of pubs and restaurants. Take in the jazz at The Nags Head on Sunday afternoon, enjoy the excellent food and beer at The Queens Arms, and sample the legendary chicken and bacon jam burger at Eat17.
To walk off all the food you’ve eaten, wander to the 15th century Ancient House, check out St Mary’s Church and its ivy clad church yard, have a pint in the garden at the Castle Pub, then admire the art in the windows of the old iron mongers.
