This purpose built flat strikes us as being an absolutely brilliant first time purchase, due to it’s location (more on that below) and what it offers in terms of putting your own stamp on it. It really is a blank canvas upon which to give vent to all those ideas you’ve had stored away for your own place, in the process turning this flat into your home. Comprising lounge, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, and set within communal gardens at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this property really could be turned into a fantastic first home.
Living here... - This purpose built flat sits on the cusp of Walthamstow and Leyton. As such, you are lucky enough to have the best of both worlds literally on your doorstep. Wander up Markhouse Road and it’s all things E17, with Walthamstow Leisure Centre a gentle stroll away, as are the beautiful and tranquil Walthamstow Marshes. You’re also within walking distance of the High Street, where you will find bars and cafes aplenty. Hop across Lea Bridge Road, and it’s E10 where you are heading. Take a meander through Jubilee Park, have a pint and a burger at The Hare & Hounds, try the amazing toasties at Lighthaus café, or jump on the train at nearby Lea Bridge station and travel one stop to Stratford, meaning Westfield and the Olympic Park are both within easy reach. There’s even easy access via Lea Bridge Road to Chatsworth Road and Clapton beyond, meaning you will genuinely never be short of things to see and do. Seriously, the only thing that is going to trouble you with this flat is deciding what to do next…
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - The whine and creak of a passing bus, air thick with the sound of church bells, a green flash of colour in the sky as parakeets fly overhead. A tangle of quiet residential streets, allotments and green spaces, all presided over by a 200 year old lighthouse. Doesn’t sound like Walthamstow does it? But it is - this is Markhouse Road. Whilst Markhouse itself is a main road, the streets that lead off it are anything but. Properties here are a mix of Warner flats, terraced houses, and even some former farmers cottages.
Check out the Pumphouse Museum - it’s free and has working steam engines. It also hosts occasional pop up restaurants in an old Victoria Line tube carriage. Jimmy’s Cafe serves a mean fry up and really good Thai food. St James Street and St James Park are just around the corner, and the Marshes, Central Walthamstow and Walthamstow Village are all within walking distance. As for the lighthouse, it’s actually a church topped with a lantern instead of bells. If you ever get the chance to climb up the tower, do it. You have to navigate ancient, rickety wooden ladders, but the view from top is fantastic.
