Guide Price: £525,000-£575,000. A family friendly and beautifully presented three bedroom terraced house, perched on a quiet residential road between Wood Street and Walthamstow Village.
The 800 square feet of internal space is uber practically set out for modern family life, with the ground floor being essentially one large open plan space. To the front sits the kitchen area, kitted out with a range of modern base and eye level units, and with room to eat as well as cook. The lounge area is expansive and immaculately presented, with sunlight flooding in from the rear window and door, highlighting the engineered wood flooring. It’s the ultimate family room.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, all as well presented as the ground floor, and a modern three piece family bathroom.
Outside there is a low maintenance garden, ideal for relaxing once the summer months return.
Living here... - At the risk of repeating ourselves, we adore this part of Walthamstow. Seriously, what’s not to like? As well as an amazing sense of community, Wood Street is rapidly becoming another must visit destination in E17. There are literally new businesses and buildings seemingly popping up daily. Head down to Marilucia for a fantastic thin crust pizza (we love the Contadina), or check out the amazing vegan food at Mini Hiba. If it’s evening entertainment you want, The Duke offers fabulous cocktails and burgers well into the early hours, or wander up Shernhall Street to the Ravenswood, where your mind will be blown by the dazzling neon at God’s Own Junkyard. If the head is somewhat fuzzy the next morning, where better than the Old Station Yard Café for the magical restorative effects of a full English fry up, perhaps wandering into Lancaster’s next door when you’re done to pick up some plants for the garden. If you feel the need for exercise, Walthamstow Cricket Tennis and Squash Club is just around the corner on Greenway Avenue, whilst across the border in E11 Hollow Ponds offers the perfect spot for walking the dog (or for the dog to walk you). All this, and just a short train journey from the City via the handily located Wood Street station. Like we said, what’s not to like…?
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Picture the scene - you are sat in a café, melting into the best hot chocolate you have ever had, watching Morris Dancers whack each other with sticks, whilst a man dressed as a giant ram chases after a group of kids. Wood Street is the kind of place where this sort of stuff happens all the time. As well as events and family fun days, you will also find a load of street art courtesy of Wood Street Walls. Visit Wood Street Indoor Market and roam its narrow corridors which are packed with antiques, vintage, and all sorts of curiosities. Why not visit Homies on Donkeys taqueria, browse through racks of vintage dresses at Gigi's Dressing Room or perhaps indulge in a City Spa Day at Y.Wait Beauty Salon. If you get hungry, The Duke pub is good for beer and burgers, whilst the Flower Pot is a more traditional pub and is fully equipped with pool tables and dart boards. Plus there’s Teras Turkish Barbecue restaurant or The Brothers Fish Bar, which are also popular local haunts. Hollow Ponds boating lake and Epping Forest are just a short walk up Wood Street – both are excellent places to exercise, relax and unwind.
In The Owners Words... - This house has been at the centre of our family life for 4+ years. Friends always comment on the feel of our home, it's spacious and light but also very comfortable and cosy. We've also enjoyed plenty of large BBQs in the garden in warmer months. It has been ideal having the Victoria line and the Overground on our doorstep whilst one of us has worked in Central/West London, and one of us has been based in the City/East - basically any commute has been a dream from Walthamstow! It has been fantastic having the ever expanding range of places to eat or drink out locally, and more recently we have appreciated the great standard or nurseries in the area. Only the desire to expand our family further, and so to move out of London to get a bit more space has meant that very reluctantly we have decided we must leave the area.
