A quintessential Village property, this charming semi-detached house feels to us like the perfect spot to live, particularly now the warmer weather is returning and you can enjoy the generous, sun dappled private rear garden. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves – let’s start inside. The first room you will encounter is the open plan lounge diner, which provides plenty of space whether the plan is a quite night in with the latest must-see box set and a glass of wine, or entertaining family and friends with your latest culinary creation. If the latter, the location of the kitchen directly off the lounge diner is ideal, meaning you can both cook and entertain your guests at the same time. Completing the layout of the ground floor is the family bathroom to the rear. Wander up the stairs and you’ll discover two well proportioned and presented bedrooms on the first floor. And then of course, it’s back to that garden, which is bookended by patio areas at either end, and can be accessed via a side entrance from the front (perfect if the bike or footwear has got a bit muddy and walking through the house is frowned upon as a result). Like we said at the start, a quintessential Village home…
Living here... - We can see this house whenever we have a meeting or event at Walthamstow Village Window Gallery, which means it must be right in the middle of the Village! Stroll down Eden Road itself and check out the menu at The Castle (our favourite is the quinoa and beetroot burger) or head in the other direction towards Orford Road, where the culinary choices are pretty much endless (Eat 17, Village Kitchen, Orford Road Saloon, The Queens Arms – need we go on?) Follow the sounds of the bells at St Mary’s and nip into the Ravenswood, where the neon will blow your mind at God’s Own Junkyard, the gin cocktails are always delicious at Mother’s Ruin, and the beers perfectly chilled at Pillars and Wildcard breweries. If you need to get further afield (or it’s the dreaded Monday morning commute to work) then Walthamstow Central station is just a short walk down the hill. Perfectly located, whatever the occasion…
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 a stunning leafy enclave, with a community spirit that sees the village regularly win and get shortlisted for the national Village in Bloom Awards, that has established the E17 Designers fairs, the E17 Art Trail every year; that sees neighbours getting together for street parties and where crowds fill the streets for Christmas carols in the village square. There is something for everyone, stylish restaurants and welcoming pubs with beer gardens, to the craft breweries that have taken up residence in the Ravenswood Industrial Park, 5 minutes walk from the property. God's Own Junk yard also found there, truly is a gem and has put Walthamstow firmly on the map with neon treasures that you can marvel at and get lost among. All the desirable amenities for an active social life are here in the village, while being on the doorstep of the beautiful and tranquil Epping Forest, with is bike trails and footpaths, leading you away from the city to solitude within just a few minutes stroll. To walk off all the food you’ve eaten in the restaurants, delis and specialist food shops, wander to the 15th century Ancient House, check out St Mary’s Church and its ivy clad church yard, or William Morris Museum, have a pint in the garden at the Castle Pub, then admire the art in the windows of the old iron mongers.
