Guide Price: £675,000-£725,000. Sleek and ultra-modern, this three bedroom detached (yes, detached!) house on Church Hill Road is the type of property where you can just move the furniture in, put the kettle on, and relax. It’s all been done for you, so those DIY tools can stay safely packed away. On the ground floor there there’s a double aspect reception room and WC, plus the undoubted heart of this house – the amazing kitchen/diner to the rear. Flooded with light thanks to the full width windows, this is somewhere you’re going to spend lots of time, whether entertaining family and friends, or just settling down for dinner with the kids. Upstairs, there are three generously proportioned bedrooms and the family bathroom, whilst outside there’s a courtyard style garden to enjoy as Spring and Summer return. All in all, a great property…
Living here... - It’s hard not to fall in love with properties on and around Church Hill. In fact, in our opinion, there really is only one drawback to this amazing part of E17 – there is simply too much to do! Cut through Poets Corner, where you can grab a pint at the Olde Rose & Crown and take in a show at the theatre there. Further along Hoe Street are Mirth Marvel & Maude (which serves the best espresso martinis anywhere in our opinion) and SoDo Pizza, as well as the cinema and restaurants at The Scene. A wander in the other direction takes you to The Bell and beyond to Lloyd Park, home of the award winning William Morris Gallery. If that isn’t enough choice, then Walthamstow Village is literally the other side of Church Hill, offering an ever-expanding array of places to eat and drink, or to just sit down and watch the world go by. All this, and only a short walk from Walthamstow Central station (or Wood Street station if you prefer), meaning that even the dreaded daily commute is as painless as possible. Frankly, given all of that, it’s a wonder there aren’t more people in love with this particular part of E17…
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Where in Walthamstow can you find a Greek theatre, supposed plague pit, and a collection of dead poets? Give up? Well I’ll tell you - the answer is Church Hill. OK, plague pits and dead poets make it sound a bit a grim so let me tell you more. The dead poets are road names - Milton, Aubrey and Byron. These roads, along with a few others, are often referred to as Poets Corner. This little bit of E17 has a great community vibe, and residents hold a cracking street party every year. The Greek theatre is in the grounds of Walthamstow School For Girls. Built in the 1920s, this open air theatre still hosts performances every summer. (Bit of Shakespeare anyone?) The plague pit? Well, that’s more of a local legend really. People say that Vinegar Alley, which links Church Hill to Church Lane, gets its name because locals sprinkled vinegar along the alley to stop the plague spreading from the graves beyond. This probably isn’t true, but it’s a good story to tell visitors. With easy access to the Village, Hoe Street, and the High Street (even Lloyd Park is just a short stroll away), Church Hill and its surrounding roads are a great base from which you can explore the rest of Walthamstow.
