This 600 plus square foot garden flat offers the opportunity to live in the very heart of Walthamstow Village. Perched on Third Avenue, a quiet residential road off Hoe Street, it’s the perfect first time purchase.
To the front of the property sits the generous, bay fronted lounge, with its beautiful stained floorboards and shuttered windows. As you move along the hallway (passed the door leading to the storage friendly cellar) you will discover a 124 square foot main bedroom, family bathroom, second bedroom and the kitchen, complete with fitted units and Butler style sink. From this latter room you can access the private rear garden via the stable style door. It is mostly laid to lawn and has a patio area for al fresco dining – ideal now that Summer is in full swing.
This is a terrific flat, ideally located, and with space aplenty both inside and out. What more could you possibly ask for…?
Living here... - When you’re perched just off Orford Road, you are guaranteed to have literally everything that the Village in particular (and E17 in general) has to offer. Whether it's a cold beer on your way home from work (The Queen's Arms, The Village and The Castle are moments from your door), dinner of a Saturday evening or a Sunday morning brunch (far too many options to fit in here!) or simply relaxing with a latte and watching the world go by, there is plenty to choose from. And that's even before we mention the delights of the Ravenswood, the sights and sounds of the market and Hoe Street, and the green open spaces of Epping Forest.
Walthamstow Central Station is literally a hop skip and a jump away and offers great transport links into Central London via the Victoria Line and London Overground.
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 content to simply be the neon capital of Europe. An unlikely claim you might think, but visit God’s Own Junkyard on Ravenswood industrial estate and you’ll see what I mean.
When your mind has been blown by the neon, pop in to Mother’s Ruin Gin Palace and Wildcard Brewery. All three businesses are based on Ravenswood, making it the most exciting industrial estate on the planet. The Village is full of quiet residential streets that all have easy access to bucket loads of pubs and restaurants. Take in the jazz at The Nags Head on Sunday afternoon, enjoy the excellent food and beer at The Queens Arms, and sample the legendary chicken and bacon jam burger at Eat17.
To walk off all the food you’ve eaten, wander to the 15th century Ancient House, check out St Mary’s Church and its ivy clad church yard, have a pint in the garden at The Castle Pub, then admire the art in the windows of the old iron mongers.
In The Owners Words... - 11 Third Avenue made a perfect first-time home for us as a couple. And Walthamstow has got better and better ever since!
We were extremely lucky to find it after months of searching. It has really good sized rooms, a lovely garden and on a lovely tree-lined street in the village- it ticked all our boxes and more - as we were even lucky enough to have a second bedroom - practically unheard of!
When we moved in, we took up the flooring to reveal the original wooden floorboards underneath and painstakingly sanded and varnished them which completely transformed the look and feel of the place.
Our favourite feature is the huge bay window in the lounge. It floods the room with light which is then accented with the Pinterest-worthy wooden plantation shutters we added which everyone always comments on - we're just gutted we can't take them with us but they're made to measure!
The quirky cellar is great for storage - and halloween parties! It's always been a real talking point when we've had guests who always insist on going down there to check it out!
The kitchen stable door out to the patio and garden is lovely in the summer, where you have sunlight flooding the kitchen and can hear the birds singing and th leaves rustling in the breeze .
It really is in the perfect location - so close to the bustling, vibrant village and also just a couple of minutes to the tube and train station (where we managed to get a seat without fail! every single day!) - that coupled with stunning countryside right on its doorstep too. E17 rules!
