A stylish and contemporary end of terrace house, with interiors that are as fresh and modern as you could ever hope to see.
Coming in at not far short of 1000 square feet (973 if you want to be more accurate) the internal space is as impressive in size as it is in presentation. The exposed steels in the lounge diner show how this property has been adapted to modern life, to create uber practical, open plan living.
The ground floor comprises lounge diner, kitchen and bathroom. The first of those is cavernous - easily able to accommodate lounge, dining and home office areas. It’s also got exquisite engineered wood flooring underfoot, the rich hues of which are really brought out by the natural light that floods in from the bi fold doors at one end. This is a room that will be the hub of this home whatever the day of the week or time of the year. The kitchen next door has plenty of almost industrial looking fitted cabinetry, sleek work surfaces and tiled splashbacks, whilst the bathroom has a Victorian feel, complete with claw foot, free standing bath as part of the three piece suite...
- Upstairs the attention to detail continues. Both of the double bedrooms have more of that fabulous engineered wood flooring. The larger of the two is dual aspect, with Juliet balcony and built in storage, and also benefits from a fantastic en suite shower room, complete with large, walk in shower cubicle.
Outside there is a low maintenance, courtyard style garden – the perfect sun trap in the summer 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 pizza at Yard Sale, 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... - I bought the house back in late 2014 and totally refurbished the property adding an extension back in March 2015. I feel that it is a haven of calm in the east end and have enjoyed many years there and am only selling as work has now relocated me in Leicestershire. I oversaw all aspects of the renovation (E17 has copies of the before pictures if these are of interest) and wanted the highest specs to make this a forever home as it is such a special and unique property with a rich history going back to the 1840's when it was, I'm told, a dairy. I know that whoever ends up buying the property will thoroughly love living in such a special house right in the heart of E17.
