A capacious and inviting four bedroom end of terrace house, situated on Folkestone Road.
This generously proportioned family home offers in excess of 1500 square feet of space, set across three floors. It has been thoughtfully extended both on the ground floor and into the loft, ensuring there is plenty of room for all. The ground floor comprises of four rooms – two receptions, kitchen and conservatory. Both reception rooms have beautiful exposed floorboards underfoot and feature fireplaces, with the front benefitting from a large bay window and the rear offering access to the conservatory via French doors. There is also a connecting door between the two reception rooms. As you would expect, the conservatory has a fully glazed ceiling, ensuring it is light filled throughout the day, making it the perfect spot to retire to with a good book and a cuppa. The kitchen next door is kitted out with a range of base and eye level fitted units, and also has space to dine as well as cook.
Upstairs the bedrooms are divided across the two upper floors. On the first floor there are three bedrooms. Two are solid doubles (both with feature fireplaces) and the third a single, which would make a fantastic home office in our view. The family bathroom is also on this floor, together with the separate WC. The second floor houses the principal bedroom suite. This comprises generous bedroom (with Juliet balcony and plenty of room for free standing storage) and an en suite shower room...
- Outside there is a private garden to the rear. This is mostly laid to lawn, with border planting and a paved patio area directly adjacent to the conservatory. The garden can also be accessed via a sideway leading from the front of the house – very handy when wheeling muddy bikes back after a day’s cycling!
Living here... - There is so much to do in and around E17, you’ll need more hours than there are in the day to fit it all in. Seriously, how else would you have time to stroll the length of the longest street market in Europe, watch the latest blockbuster at The Scene, browse the shops in the Mall, peruse the latest exhibition at the William Morris Gallery, devour a pizza at SoDo or Yard Sale, laugh ‘til your sides split at Red Imp Comedy? (Stop – pauses for breath). The list goes on and on. And that’s without even mentioning Walthamstow Village, in which this property sits, and is home to numerous brilliant bars and eateries.
There simply aren’t enough hours in the day...
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, have a pint in the garden at The Castle Pub, then admire the art in the windows of the old iron mongers.
In The Owners Words... - “This has been a happy house for nearly thirty years where we’ve raised our children and seen them fly the nest. I love the sense of light especially in the loft, and in the conservatory where we’ve spent many a restful hour, especially with the doors open to the patio and garden watching the bees buzz around the flowers. A lit fire in the open fireplace in the front room gives a real sense of cosiness and being in the heart of the home on a cold winter’s night. It’s a friendly and peaceful road, combined with being so close to the village, market and tubes and busses. Walthamstow has a lovely community feel and we’ll be sad to leave the area and the house, but we feel it’s now time for a new family to enjoy this house as much as we have.”
