This two bedroom terraced house on Luton Road offers over 900 square feet of well set out internal space, as well as a sizeable garden to the rear, making it a very “user friendly” home.
The ground floor comprises three rooms. To the front is a bay windowed lounge – the perfect spot to which to retreat for an evening of TV viewing. To the rear are the dining room (more than ample at 230 square feet) and kitchen (100 square feet), which is directly off. However, we think it would be possible (subject to the usual consents and permissions of course) to open the wall up between the two, creating a wonderful hub for this home...
- Ascend the stairs and you will find two well presented double bedrooms and the fully tiled, 3 piece family bathroom.
Outside to the rear is a paved garden, which offers a blank canvas to create your own space, or alternatively simply pitch your deckchair and enjoy the Summer.
Living here... - Now that Summer is here, what could be better than taking a stroll to either Stoneydown Park or Lloyd Park? You’ll be about equidistant from both, so why not grab an ice cream, sit down, and watch the world go by?
Well, as good as that sounds, there are actually lots of other things to do within easy walking distance of this lovely terraced house. Wander down Forest Road and see how many of Time Out’s “14 brilliant things to do on Blackhorse Lane” you can do in one day. (Clue – you are bound to run out of time). If sport is your thing, cut down Edward Road and you could have a game of five a side with your mates at Douglas Eyre Sports Centre. Or wander past there and onto the Marshes (part of the largest urban wetlands in Europe), which are beautiful at this time of year, and a real oasis of wildlife amidst the hustle and bustle of East London.
When evening comes you’re spoilt for choice too. You could nip over to Walthamstow High Street and into The Chequers for a bite to eat (It’s brilliant on Sunday for lunch too) or wander further up towards The Scene. Alternatively, come next year you could instead head in the other direction towards Blackhorse Lane, which is about to become the next big “go to” place in E17, with the Wildcard Brewery already up and running there (we’ll have a Jack of Clubs please), soon to be followed by the new Truman’s Brewery and taproom, complete with street food market and live music space. They’re even planning to run brewing classes if you fancy learning how to turn your shed into a brewhouse (where do we sign up?)
Seems to us Time Out might just have to expand that number of brilliant things to do pretty soon...
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - William Morris was a Walthamstow lad - he lived in the Water House on Forest Road. His childhood home is now the William Morris Gallery, the only gallery on the face of the planet dedicated to his life and work. Lloyd Park, in which the gallery stands, is named after another former resident of the Water House, Edward Lloyd, a publisher of penny dreadfuls. As well as having a medieval moat, playground and a cafe, the park is also home to some great local events, including the May Day dog show which shouldn't be missed. The best dressed dog round is amazing. One year it had a Star Wars theme, with staffie princess Leahs competing against AT-AT Great Danes - it was glorious. The park is surrounded by quiet streets of ex-Warner properties, The Bell pub is around the corner from the gallery, and the cafes of Hoe Street are just a short trot away. Give Wyndwood Art District a go - this little cafe has a lot going on, including a running club and exhibitions. Tommy’s Tuck In cafe, opposite the park, is a good spot for a hangover fixing breakfast. All this is only a fifteen minute walk from the station.
