Cool and elegant are the words to describe this wonderful three bedroom house on Granville Road. Beautifully presented throughout in neutral tones, the odd bold splashes of colour seem all the more vibrant as a result. On the ground floor there is a real sense of space and flow, with the rooms seeming to seamlessly merge into each other. Indeed, you can see right through to the rear of the house and beyond into the garden when standing in the beautiful, bay fronted lounge. In betwixt the garden and lounge are the second reception room (or library – the choice is yours) and a wonderful modern kitchen diner, with exquisite herringbone flooring and doors to the side and rear. There is also a lean to directly off the second reception room and a WC off the hallway. From said hallway ascend to the first floor (checking out the amazing tiled floor before you do), and you’ll discover three double bedrooms and the family bathroom, all as stylishly presented as the rooms below and equally generously proportioned. The aforementioned garden has both patio and lawn, thus making it ideal whatever your al fresco plans. This is, as we said at the start, a wonderful house, turned into a delightful and enchanting home by the current owners.
Living here... - The location of this property could hardly be better, perched as it is on the edge of Walthamstow Village, just a few minutes walk from our office on Orford Road. Stroll up Grove Road, grab a coffee at Huck’s, and then decide what to do with your day (or more accurately how to cram it all in). Check out the menu at The Castle (our favourite is the quinoa and beetroot burger). Alternatively, head to Orford Road, where the culinary choices are pretty much endless (Eat 17, The Queens Arms, Orford Saloon – need we go on?) If you follow the sounds of the bells at St Mary’s you are bound to pass the Ravenswood, where the neon is always glowing at God’s Own Junkyard, the gin cocktails continuously flowing at Mother’s Ruin, and the beers permanently chilled at The Barrel Store. If you need to get further afield then Walthamstow Central station is just a short walk away. Great property, great location – need we say more…?
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.
