This utterly stunning, four bedroom house on Granville Road has been brilliantly renovated by the current owner, resulting in a simply breathtaking modern home wrapped in a classic Victorian shell.
The ground floor is 658 square feet of modern, open plan living. The bay windowed lounge gives the first hint of the quality of the finish throughout, with exquisite herringbone parquet flooring underfoot, and monochrome walls and ceiling. It flows seamlessly into a sensational kitchen diner, which thanks to the swathes of glazing to the ceiling and rear, is bathed in natural light. This serves to highlight the quality of the finish of the tiled flooring, as well as add further richness to the dramatic exposed brickwork running the length of one wall. Add in the beautiful fitted units and worktops, integrated appliances and a generous island unit/breakfast bar, and it’s easy to see that this is room that will be in near constant use by all the members of the family...
- Upstairs the incredibly high standard of presentation and finish continues unabated. The first floor comprises three bedrooms (all doubles) and an exquisite family bathroom. The second floor is given over to a fabulous, 347 square foot master bedroom suite. This comes complete with a cavernous walk in wardrobe and as good an en suite bathroom as we’ve seen for many a year.
The generous private garden is accessed via bi fold doors in the kitchen diner and is mostly laid to lawn. There is also a paved patio area for al fresco relaxing or dining.
Living here... - Perched on the southern edge of Walthamstow Village, just a few minutes walk from our office on Orford Road, this is a house perfectly positioned to enjoy all that the Village has to offer. Start by wandering up Grove Road and grabbing a coffee at Huck’s – it’s the perfect spot to muse over what to do with your day (or more accurately calculate how you are going to fit everything in). Perhaps lunch at The Castle or The Queens? Or you could pop into Eat 17 or Orford Road Saloon to book a table for dinner. Alternatively follow the sound of the bells at St Mary’s and visit the Ravenswood, where the neon is always glowing at God’s Own Junkyard and the beers are permanently chilled at two of Walthamstow’s best craft breweries. (Ours is a Queen of Diamonds please). If you need to get further afield then Walthamstow Central station is just a short walk away, but who wants to think about work when there is so much still to cram into the weekend. We haven’t even got around The Scene, Mirth Marvel & Maude or the rest of Hoe Street yet. Great house, great location – enough said…
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.
