An utterly charming and exquisitely presented four bedroom house, quietly positioned on Grove Road in Walthamstow Village.
Behind the Victorian exterior lies a wealth of modern comforts, set across the expansive living accommodation, all of which is beautifully presented and expertly designed. The three floors of this home provide space for the whole family to enjoy. On entering you find a large, bright lounge with wood flooring and panelling, together with a feature fireplace. The hallway leads through to the stunning, open plan second reception/kitchen/diner. This is the undoubted hub of this home. It’s filled with light, thanks to the velux windows in the ceiling and the bi-fold doors that open onto the private garden. Whenever entertaining your family or friends, this is undoubtedly the perfect room at any time of the year.
Two double bedrooms (one with en suite) are found on the first floor, together with a contemporary four piece family bathroom (complete with rainfall shower in the walk in cubicle). From the landing stairs then lead you upwards to the loft extension, where the remaining two bedrooms sit. The smaller of the two is still a double, and offers access to a private balcony – ideal for that first coffee of the morning. The principal bedroom suite next door is dual aspect, has a Juliet balcony, en suite shower room and plenty of fitted wardrobe space.
Outside there is a delightful private garden, accessed via those bi-fold doors. It’s mostly laid to lawn, with a paved patio area for al fresco dining, plus a brick out building at the far end.
Living here... - When it comes to location, it’s hard to think of a better on than this house enjoys. That’s partly because Walthamstow Central is just a short walk away, but let’s be honest, what you really want to hear about are the local amenities, right? OK, well for the caffeine addicts amongst you (count us in!), have a wander across the road to Grove Road’s very own coffee shop, Huck’s. Armed with your latte (or in our case double espresso please) meander past Grosvenor Park and head on up to the centre of the Village. On Orford Road itself you will find plenty of places to eat and drink, whilst if you are in a more artistic mood, carry your coffee onwards to investigate local history at the Vestry House Museum (checking out the Ancient House along the way) or all things neon at God’s Own Junkyard. Or alternatively just sit down opposite St Mary’s Churchyard, relax, and watch the world go by…
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Despite what people may tell you, Walthamstow Village was not invented by estate agents. It’s called Walthamstow Village because it was once exactly that, a village. Once the administrative heart of Walthamstow, the Village is now content to simply be the neon capital of Europe. An unlikely claim you might think, but visit God’s Own Junkyard on Ravenswood industrial estate and you’ll see what I mean.
When your mind has been blown by the neon, pop in to Mother’s Ruin Gin Palace and Wildcard Brewery. All three businesses are based on Ravenswood, making it the most exciting industrial estate on the planet. The Village is full of quiet residential streets that all have easy access to bucket loads of pubs and restaurants. Take in the jazz at The Nags Head on Sunday afternoon, enjoy the excellent food and beer at The Queens Arms, and sample the legendary chicken and bacon jam burger at Eat17.
To walk off all the food you’ve eaten, wander to the 15th century Ancient House, check out St Mary’s Church and its ivy clad church yard and have a pint in the garden at The Castle Pub.
In The Owners Words... - I’ve loved living here these past nearly 7 years watching the area evolve. This house has been my sanctuary, I invested in a complete overhaul signed off nearly 6 years ago and have loved watching the neighbours following my lead, and young families move in and a vibrant community being built.
The house has been great during the past few months as there's been space to enjoy time working at home, sipping coffee in the morning on the balcony and being south facing enjoying the sun all day, the front of the house has been cool enough to work comfortably.
Huck's across the road is amazing with the professionalism of the baristas, the music nights, the food tasting menus - and not forgetting the cocktail nights. Boma in the antiques shop is a fabulous character always a smile and friendly advice. Here I feel part of a community but within my little sanctuary. The house has thrown some fabulous parties especially New Years - where you see all the fireworks along the Thames. Now is time to hand over this mantle that I’ve loved, I hope you fall in love with it too.
