This three bedroom, mid terrace house on Byron Road is not only ideally placed in the Poets Corner area of E17 – it’s also perfectly set out for modern life.
Wander through the front door, across the porch and the first room you come to is a dual aspect, open plan reception room. At over 285 square feet it overs plenty of room for both relaxing and entertaining, whether that’s curled up on the sofa with the latest must see box set, or sat around the dining table with good food and even better friends. It’s the undoubted hub of this home. Conveniently located directly behind is the galley style kitchen, with fitted units and tiled flooring and splashbacks, and from there you reach an internal lobby and thence the 3 piece, fully tiled family bathroom.
Ascend to the first floor and you will discover three well proportioned bedrooms, the main one stretching across the full width of the front of the house, and the two others offering views of the garden to the rear...
- The garden itself is utterly charming, and has a slightly Mediterranean feel to it. Courtyard in style, it has beautiful planting around the borders, and a raised, stone flagged seating area at the end – the perfect spot for al fresco dining. There is additionally a gate in the back fence leading to a rear access road – perfect if you don’t want to wheel your muddy bike through the house.
This is a delightful home, on a delightful road...
Living here... - As we said above, this home nestles quietly in the Poets Corner area of Walthamstow, close to the buzz of Hoe Street and Walthamstow Village, yet cocooned on a peaceful side road which could be miles away from the hustle and bustle of East London. Everything is on your doorstep, from comedy at The Rose & Crown and cocktails at Mirth Marvel & Maude, through to the latest blockbusters at The Scene and artistic inspiration at the William Morris Gallery. And that’s even without heading in the opposite direction to the Village and sampling the many culinary delights on offer there. Plus of course, it’s within easy walking distance of Walthamstow Central station.
Not only is this a great part of Walthamstow to call home, just imagine being able to tell your friends you live somewhere with a name as aesthetically pleasing as Poets Corner…
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. 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, Church Hill and its surrounding roads are a great base from which you can explore the rest of Walthamstow.
In The Owners Words... - “It’s impossible to remember all of the good times we’ve had since this house became our first home 13 years ago. We love how the Poets Corner end of town has become a destination in its own right and isn’t just a place that is close to the market, station and village (although it is!). Having the William Morris Gallery, Lloyd Park and the Bell on the doorstep has acted like a magnet for a host of new independent businesses to locate literally at the bottom of the road. But we love how you can be close to everything and still feel miles away from it all in our sunny little garden. Probably our favourite memory is getting engaged on the spur of the moment in the front room, but now it’s time for someone else to make new memories here and we know they will be good ones.”
