A quintessential Village property, this charming cottage is larger than many in the vicinity, thanks to ground floor extension to the rear, and is beautifully presented throughout.
To the front is the sitting room, which in our view works equally well as an office as it would a TV den. Explore further, and the engineered wood flooring will guide you seamlessly into the open plan lounge diner on the other side of the stairwell. This open plan, L shaped room is over 23 feet in length, and offers space for both dining and relaxing. There is also a clever use of the space under the stairs as built in storage/shelving, adding to versatility of this family friendly space. At the rear of the ground floor sits the galley style kitchen, complete with sleek, modern fitted units and richly coloured wooden worktops.
The first floor is as handsomely presented as the one below, with two double bedrooms and a fantastic four piece family bathroom, complete with separate shower cubicle.
Accessed from the kitchen is the private, courtyard style rear garden. It’s easy to imagine sitting here on a balmy summer’s evening, enjoying good food and good company, right in the heart of the Village.
Living here... - As you stand in this amazing and historic part of Walthamstow, surrounded by Vestry House Museum, the Ancient House and the Squires alms houses, with the bells of St Mary's Church ringing on the other side of the churchyard, it really is possible to imagine that you are in a village, surrounded by countryside, and a million miles from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis. And yet close to the City you most certainly are, thanks to the proximity of Walthamstow Central station, whilst at the same time cocooned by the tranquillity that Walthamstow Village is famous for. Sit by the flower meadow at the corner of Orford Road, listening to those bells, or outside the Orford Saloon or Eat 17 with a glass of something cold in hand, and tell us this isn’t the most beautiful place in East London (nay, the whole capital)….
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Sitting opposite a 15th century timber-framed house, listening to the sound of bells ring in the nearby 12th century church, whilst the breeze gently blows through the trees behind you. Sounds idyllic doesn't it? Sounds like a scene from the middle of the countryside, but it isn't. This is the scene you will find when sat on the bench on Church Lane in Walthamstow. The timber-framed building in front of you is the Ancient House, the church bells belong to St Mary's, and all around you is Walthamstow Village. Leave the bench behind, walk forwards, and you'll soon find yourself on Orford Road. Take the weight off your feet and relax with a glass of wine at In Vino Veritas. Wander a bit further down the road and you'll find Froth & Rind, our very own (and very amazing) cheese and beer shop. Pop in to the tapas bar or deli, have a meal and pint of pale in The Queens Arms, or chill in the garden of The Village pub. Quiet roads, beautiful cottages, pubs, restaurants, parks for the kids, and more character than you can shake a stick at. This is an urban Village with something for everyone.
