A capaciously proportioned and immaculately presented two bedroom garden flat in central E17, ideally located for both Blackhorse Road and St James Street stations.
This amazing home offers over 950 square feet of cleverly designed and impeccably executed living space, with an exacting attention to detail that runs throughout. The undoubted star of the show is the stunning kitchen/diner/lounge. This generous space is filled with light thanks to the dual aspect, as well as the large sliding doors to the garden and the skylight. It’s an open plan room where each area is clearly defined, yet all merge seamlessly together to create a real hub for this home. What better than preparing dinner for family or friends in the fantastic kitchen (complete with fitted units, quartz worktops and integrated appliances), whilst your guests gather around the breakfast bar, relax at the dining table, or recline in the lounge area. It’s a room that is made to entertain in.
Both of the bedrooms are proper doubles. The one to the front has a bay window, whilst the one to the rear has views of the decked area (more of that later). Both, like the rest of the flat, have handsome engineered wood flooring underfoot. Wander through the second bedroom and you come to the study, which must be a wonderful place to work, offering as it does views of the garden. Also here in the study you’ll discover a uber modern wet room, complete with rainfall shower, to compliment the mid-point, three piece family bathroom...
- Outside there is a private rear garden. It has a large decked area occupying the side return (ideal for al fresco dining in the summer months), plus a large lawned area with border planting further back. And as an added bonus, there is also off street parking – very handy!
This is one of the best (and most generously proportioned) garden flats we have seen, and as such is pretty much guaranteed to be popular....
Living here... - You know what they say – it’s all about location. In which case, this flat scores very highly indeed. Head down Coppermill Lane for a cup of coffee at Springfield Marina and an afternoon exploring the Marshes and Wetlands. If you can’t face cooking, wander over to The Chequers for a spot of lunch – their roasts are fabulous. (You could even grab a movie afterwards at The Empire). Or how about the best fish and chips in Walthamstow – they’re at Bonner’s on Northcote Road. And of course, don’t forget the Crate St James box park, where you can grab outstanding street food and enjoy a pint in the newest retail/entrepreneur hub in E17.
Unfortunately, the weekend can’t last forever (more’s the pity), so when work calls on Monday, take your pick of transport links - Blackhorse Road, Walthamstow Central and St James Street stations are all within easy walking distance, meaning the daily commute is just that bit more bearable.
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 the 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 reopened as a bar and live music venue. Now called Mirth, Marvel & Maud, this building is simply stunning. 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.
In The Owners Words..., - "This property has been an amazing home for us. We have loved living in this space; it is very special and is entirely unique for Walthamstow. The large open plan living area makes entertaining friends and family extremely easy and the two bathrooms have been crucial for when we have had guests to stay. It has been great to see many new cafes and bars open around St James over the last few years. Having the newly opened wetlands on our doorstep has also been amazing for getting out and about. The property has been a very special home for us; we moved in as a couple and will be leaving it with our son in tow. We hope this property goes to someone who adores it as much as we do.”
