A delightful three bedroom terraced house in the ever popular Poets Corner area of E17, making it both beautifully presented and conveniently placed.
To the front of the property, and stretching some 27 feet, is the open plan lounge diner. This generously proportioned room offers plenty of space, whether your entertaining family and friends, or simply settling down to watch the latest must-see box set.
Directly behind sits the modern kitchen. It’s fitted with a range of base and eye level units, integrated hob and oven, and tiled floors and splashbacks. The ground floor is rounded off by the three piece family bathroom to the rear, complete with shower over the bath...
- Ascend the upstairs and you’ll discover the three well presented bedrooms, offering lots of practical space.
Outside, there is a peaceful and secluded courtyard style garden, which is low maintenance and thus will afford you plenty of time to enjoy alfresco dining in the warmer months.
Living here... - This property nestles peacefully on a quiet residential street, close to the bright lights and buzz of Hoe Street and Walthamstow Village, yet cocooned such that it 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. Not only is this a great part of Walthamstow to reside in, 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. (Bit of Shakespeare anyone?) 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 (even Lloyd Park is just a short stroll away), Church Hill and its surrounding roads are a great base from which you can explore the rest of Walthamstow.
In The Owners Words... - "This house has been at the centre of our family’s life for over 45 years. People always comment on the feel of our home, how spacious it feels inside but also how very very comfortable and cosy it is. We love that it is only a 5 minutes stroll to the ‘Village’ or to the tube. In the summertime, the garden is a lovely place to relax and unwind whist chatting to the neighbours . We feel part of a community with great neighbours. We will miss this house greatly and wish we could uproot it and take it with us."
