A beautifully presented and sympathetically extended three bedroom terraced house on Century Road.
Offering over 1100 square feet of incredibly practical internal space, this is a home that it is impossible not to fall in love with. The cool palette used throughout, with splashes of colour from items like the exposed brick chimney breast, stripped wood flooring and sleek, fitted kitchen units help create a warm and welcoming feel, where original features sit comfortably with the necessities required for modern life.
The ground floor of the property comprises bay windowed lounge to the front, and bright, spacious kitchen/breakfast room to the rear, with bi-folds leading to the garden. There is also a ground floor cloakroom. The first floor houses two bedrooms and a fantastic three piece family bathroom, complete with free standing roll top bath. The loft extension then rounds off the internal spaces, with dual aspect master bedroom (with Juliet balcony) and en suite shower room.
The garden to the rear is low maintenance, with artificial lawn, border planting, a paved patio area.
Living here... - The location of this house couldn’t be better. Head down Coppermill Lane for a cup of coffee at Springfield Marina and an afternoon exploring the Marshes and Wetlands. (On your way back nip into Crate St James for some amazing street food). Or head the other way and check out Lloyd Park and the award winning gallery therein. Can’t face cooking on a Sunday? Check out The Chequers for a spot of lunch – their roasts are fabulous. (You could even grab a movie afterwards at The Empire). If alternatively you are looking to “whip up a storm” in the kitchen, then make sure you pop into Forest Wines to pick up something delightful to go with it, be it an organic Tempranillo or even a gluten-free Pale Ale - they’ll always recommend the perfect accompaniment, whatever your requirements.
If something creative is on your agenda, then this area is perfect for you, with both Blackhorse Workshop and Gnome House just a stroll away. Check out all manner of classes, from printing to metalwork.
Once the weekend is over, Blackhorse Road station is close by, meaning the daily commute is just that bit less stressful.
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Blackhorse Road station sits at the junction of Blackhorse Road and Blackhorse Lane. The name is actually a mispronunciation of Black House, a grand old house that once stood near St James Street. Blackhorse Road runs through the heartland of the old Warner estate. If the road was an artery, then its veins would be the quiet tree lined streets of red brick half house flats that lead off many of its junctions. Have a wander down Edward Road and marvel at number 108. This beautiful tiled building is now flats, but once belonged to Truman's Brewery. It is simply glorious. Stoneydown Park is a great park with a kids’ playground, and the perfect spot to sit with an ice cream in the summer. Behind the park is Bonner’s Fish Bar which, according to some, is the best chip shop in Walthamstow. Quiet streets, good transport links, free music, and the best chippy - what more could you want?
In The Owners Words... - This house was our first home together and it's a very difficult one to leave. Not only is it full of wonderful memories but it truly marries the best of both worlds. It's a pretty Victorian home with original features and high ceilings but without any of the practical drawbacks. After a sensitive top-to-toe remodelling by a local developer, it's full of light and top-end fixtures that all sit in their perfect place - an instant 'add-water' family home.
We especially adore its seasonality. In the winter we sit under the skylight with a bottle of wine and a table of friends and when the sun shines, we open up the bi-fold doors into the garden and have breakfast outside. The camellia blooms red in spring and the birds sing throughout the year. It's an oasis with a 25 minute commute into town.
Whilst our neighbourhood is peaceful, there's always lots to do. The 'Makers Corner' of Walthamstow has recently benefited from huge investment so there's always something exciting popping up - craft breweries, restaurants, even a climbing wall/yoga spot. We love that we're a 10 minute walk (or 5 minute run) to Lloyd Park with its farmers market, gallery and tennis courts, a 15 minute walk to the Wetlands, the best brunch in Walthamstow around the corner at Blackhorse Workshop and lots of indy coffee shops.
Transport-wise, it's very well connected. A 5 minute walk to Blackhorse Road for a seat on the Victoria Line or North London overground, an 8 minute walk to St James Street or a lovely cycle route to Hackney Wick.
The only reason we're leaving is because there's no work needed on the house and we're (stupidly) in search of a project!
