Finding the perfect home is about many things, but the two most important are the area (more about that below), and of course the property itself. That being the case, we think that this beautifully renovated Victorian house in Poets Corner may very well be that perfect home for whoever is lucky enough to buy it. Wander through the front door and you will see what we mean. The two reception rooms offer flexibility thanks to the connecting double doors, yet seamlessly connect thanks to the solid oak flooring. The kitchen is a joy, flooded with light all day thanks to its south facing aspect and discreet garden lighting in the evening. There is also permission already in place for a 6 metre extension. The bespoke plywood units include solid “nano coated” walnut work surfaces, and house integrated white goods, instant hot water tap, and a food disposal system. Ascend the stairs (not forgetting to check out the made to measure under stairs storage units, as well as the solid fuel stove in the rear reception room), and the charm and elegance continues, with four beautifully presented bedrooms and two bathrooms spread over two floors. Outside the rear garden is a haven of peace and tranquillity, with a mixture of mature trees, shrubs and blooms, ensuring a riot of colour in the summer months. There’s even a vegetable patch if you want to “grow your own” – useful for when family and friends pop around in the summer and you need an accompaniment for whatever is grilling on the BBQ. This is clearly a home that is cherished by the current owner, as evidenced by the attention to detail (did we mention the underfloor heating in the kitchen?), and the love and care that goes into even the smallest of those details, thus ensuring, in our view, as close to perfection as it is possible to come.
Living here... - Equidistant to Walthamstow Central, the Village and Lloyd Park, Poets Corner could hardly be more ideally located (and that’s even before you take into account free fuel for your wood burner from the wood turners at the end of the road). There’s a real sense of community here, with regular events and street parties, ensuring you will soon know all the neighbours by name. Possibly the best pub in E17 (The Rose & Crown) is on your doorstep, as well as the amazing Mirth Marvel & Maude, Yard Sale Pizza, SoDo (the list goes on and on), as well as the green spaces of Lloyd Park (anyone for tennis?) and the sights and sounds of the Village and the Ravenswood. It doesn’t get much better than that…
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Get off the tube at Walthamstow Central and find the world waiting for you. Honestly, this is no exaggeration - if you want something, you’ll likely find it not too far from the station. The market, the longest in Europe, is busy and thriving. Pick up fresh fruit and veg, or visit the rotisserie stall on a Saturday for the best pork or chicken baguettes in town. Next to the market we have a shopping centre packed with high street names, and right at the top of the High Street you’ll find our new cinema and retail complex. Called The Scene, it is home to a ten screen Empire cinema, Pizza Express, and loads of other bars and restaurants. Just around the corner from this new cinema, is a very old one. The Granada opened in 1930, and after a long campaign by local residents it has recently reopened as a bar and live music venue. It will soon undergo a further transformation into a major new arts & comedy venue thanks to a £17m restoration budget and the collaboration of Soho Theatre. The hustle and bustle of the High Street is contrasted by the quiet residential streets that surround it. This part of Walthamstow really gives you the best of both worlds, a shopping hub, nightlife, and peace and quiet at home.
