A truly exceptional example of a classic Warner flat. Achingly beautiful and effortlessly stylish, it’s positioned on the border where Walthamstow meets Leyton, making it the ideal location for exploring these two great areas of East London.
This flat has been renovated and extended to the very highest of standards, resulting in a home with real warm and charm.
The exquisite parquet flooring will guide you from the hallway into the full width lounge diner. Here there is abundant natural light, thanks to the three large front aspect windows, further highlighting that fantastic flooring, coved ceiling and feature fireplace. The first of the three proper double bedrooms sits directly behind, and benefits from large, floor to ceiling built in wardrobes. The second double sits at the back of the flat and enjoys view of the garden.
In between the bedrooms on this floor sit the kitchen and bathroom. The former has plenty of fitted units and work surfaces, as well as stairs down to the garden. The latter is sleek and modern, with three piece suite including a rainfall shower over the tub. It’s a real oasis from the cares of the day...
- Upstairs, the loft conversion is as good as you would expect in this delightful home. Forget about the blistering heat outside with professionally installed air-conditioning in the master bedroom. The master bedroom is dual aspect, with large velux and Juliet balcony, and has fitted wardrobes cleverly built in. There is also the adjoining shower room, as elegantly presented as the bathroom below, to round off this master suite.
Outside, there is a sizeable private rear garden, mostly laid to lawn, and with a paved patio area for al fresco dining.
Living here... - This Warner flat is on the cusp of Walthamstow and Leyton. As such, you are lucky enough to have the best of both worlds literally on your doorstep. Wander up Markhouse Road and it’s all things E17, with Walthamstow Leisure Centre a gentle stroll away, as are the beautiful and tranquil Walthamstow Marshes. You’re also within easy walking distance of the High Street, where you will find bars and cafes aplenty. Hop across Lea Bridge Road, and it’s E10 where you are heading. Take a meander through Jubilee Park, have a pint and a burger at The Hare & Hounds, try the amazing toasties at Lighthaus café, or jump on the train at nearby Lea Bridge station and travel one stop to Stratford, meaning Westfield and the Olympic Park are both within easy reach. There’s even easy access via Lea Bridge Road to Chatsworth Road and Clapton beyond, meaning you will genuinely never be short of things to see and do. Seriously, the only thing that is going to trouble you with this flat is deciding what to do next…
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - The ringing of a cyclists bell, 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 and cycle highways, 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.
In The Owners Words... - "Over the last 12 years, I have enjoyed every minute of living here. As someone who enjoys cycling, Walthamstow has been a gift. Over the last few years the London Borough of Waltham Forest has constructed miles of new cycle ways and more are yet to come; this is a great place for anyone wanting to jump on their bike and safely explore the parks and sights of East London and beyond. During the summer, forget about the blistering heat outside and enjoy the comfort of the air-conditioned master (loft) bedroom. For winter evenings, the living room is a great place to relax and watch the flames flickering away on the open fire. Walthamstow is well connected with great public transport links on London Overground, Greater Anglia, Victoria Line and direct buses to Central London.“
