A chic two bedroom flat, stylishly presented and with all the comforts of modern life, housed in a beautiful Victorian semi detached house.
This basement flat cleverly uses the skeleton of its construction in its presentation, with exposed steel beams arching over the kitchen/diner/lounge. Together with the sleek kitchen cabinets, tiled floor and partially exposed brick walls, it creates a wonderful hub for this property. Light also floods in, thanks to enormous bi fold doors at one end, which lead to a courtyard area outside.
The two bedrooms are both solid doubles, and have richly hued engineered wood flooring underfoot. The larger of the two has access to a second courtyard area.
The shower room houses a three piece suite, is fully tiled and has the largest rainfall shower we’ve ever seen – it’s like being in a high end hotel!
A fabulous flat, finished to the highest possible standard.
Living here... - This area of Walthamstow offers lots to do, particularly if sport is your thing. Just a stroll across Markhouse Road takes you to Walthamstow Leisure Centre (we’re old enough to remember when it was still called Kelmscott Leisure Centre!), whilst in the opposite direction the green open spaces of Low Hall sports ground beckon. If you wander past St James Park (lovely for a morning run with the dog) there’s Douglas Eyre Sports Centre (can you see a theme developing here?), and the wonderful Walthamstow Marshes, where you can blow away the troubles of the day as you meander down to Springfield Marina. However, don’t think it’s all exercise and no play. No, this area has plenty to keep you occupied when it’s time to relax. Wander down Markhouse Road to the market and check out The Chequers (sorry!), stop for a caffeine hit in one of the many independent coffee shops, or even stroll into Walthamstow town centre itself.
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - The whine and creak of a passing bus, air thick with the sound of church bells, a green flash of colour in the sky as parakeets fly overhead. A tangle of quiet residential streets, allotments and green spaces, all presided over by a 200 year old lighthouse. Doesn’t sound like Walthamstow does it? But it is - this is Markhouse Road. Whilst Markhouse itself is a main road, the streets that lead off it are anything but. Properties here are a mix of Warner flats, terraced houses, and even some former farmers cottages.
Check out the Pumphouse Museum - it’s free and has working steam engines. It also hosts occasional pop up restaurants in an old Victoria Line tube carriage. Jimmy’s Cafe serves a mean fry up and really good Thai food. St James Street and St James Park are just around the corner, and the Marshes, Central Walthamstow and Walthamstow Village are all within walking distance. As for the lighthouse, it’s actually a church topped with a lantern instead of bells. If you ever get the chance to climb up the tower, do it. You have to navigate ancient, rickety wooden ladders, but the view from top is fantastic.
