If there is a better example of a cottage garden in E17 than the one that greets you as you walk up the front path to this old forester’s cottage, then frankly we haven’t seen it. The front garden here is simply stunning, and makes a real statement as you crunch up the gravel path. Once inside the cottage style continues, with two interconnecting reception rooms on the ground floor, the second with an enclosed staircase leading up. The ground floor itself is completed by a modern fitted kitchen and family bathroom. Wind you way up that enclosed staircase and you will find two double bedrooms occupying the first floor, whilst to the rear of the property there is a private garden, complete with decked area. A fantastic opportunity to own a little bit of E17 history – and become the proud owner of that amazing cottage garden to boot!
Living here... - Picture the scene…you wake up on a Sunday morning, brew a cup of your favourite coffee for the vacuum mug, grab the lead as the dog waits (im) patiently by the front door, and then you head off out into the forest directly opposite your front door, man and dog ready for their next adventure. Sound good? Well, with this beautiful house that’s entirely possible, because it really does sit directly opposite Epping Forest. But don’t be fooled into thinking it’s miles from the bright lights as a result. No, instead it’s still just a short stroll down Upper Walthamstow Road to Wood Street, with its eponymous station offering easy access into the City, whilst the street itself has plenty to amuse and entertain - should the dog ever decide to allow you to venture back from your walk! Check out The Duke for burgers and cocktails, Marilucia for the best pizzas around, or Hillmans when only afternoon tea will hit the spot.
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Picture the scene - you are sat in a café, melting into the best hot chocolate you have ever had, watching Morris Dancers whack each other with sticks, whilst a man dressed as a giant ram chases after a group of kids. Wood Street is the kind of place where this sort of stuff happens all the time. As well as events and family fun days, you will also find a load of street art courtesy of Wood Street Walls. Visit Wood Street Indoor Market and roam its narrow corridors which are packed with antiques, vintage, and all sorts of curiosities. Why not visit Homies on Donkeys taqueria, browse through racks of vintage dresses at Gigi's Dressing Room or perhaps indulge in a City Spa Day at Y.Wait Beauty Salon. If you get hungry, The Duke pub is good for beer and burgers, whilst the Flower Pot is a more traditional pub and is fully equipped with pool tables and dart boards. Plus there’s Teras Turkish Barbecue restaurant or The Brothers Fish Bar, which are also popular local haunts. Hollow Ponds boating lake and Epping Forest are just a short walk up Wood Street – both are excellent places to exercise, relax and unwind.
