An utterly charming and deceptively spacious two double bedroom terraced home, situated right in the heart of Walthamstow Village on Grosvenor Rise East.
Cleverly reimagined from former shop premises, this is now a wonderfully warm and inviting 1100 square foot home. It’s that former life which means this property has a huge, almost full width window to the front. This results in the light truly flooding into the lounge and bouncing off the wooden flooring underfoot. Directly behind sits the hub of this or any home – the kitchen diner. And it’s a wonderful example of the same, with modern fitted units at one end and room to eat and entertain at the other. There’s an uber useful island unit/breakfast bar in the kitchen section, whilst bi-folding doors in the dining section can be thrown open in the summer to let the outside in.
Upstairs the level of finish and presentation continues. Both the bedrooms are proper doubles and almost identical in size, whilst nestling between them is the family bathroom. This latter room is particularly swish, with a four piece suite including walk in cubicle with rainfall shower over.
Outside the aforementioned private south facing rear garden is low maintenance, with artificial lawn and decked area immediately adjacent to the house. It’s easy to imagine sitting here on a summer’s evening and kicking back with a glass of something cold – perfect.
Living here... - This property is within strolling distance of our office, which means it must be right in the middle of the Village! As such, there are a wealth of things to see and do (and eat). Literally on your doorstep is The Castle gastro pub (try the quinoa and beetroot burger – it’s awesome) or head towards Orford Road, where the culinary choices are pretty much endless (Eat 17, Village Kitchen, The Queens Arms – need we go on?) Follow the sounds of the bells at St Mary’s and nip into the Ravenswood, where the neon is permanently glowing at God’s Own Junkyard and the beers are always chilled at the brewery tap rooms there. If you need to get further afield (or it’s the dreaded Monday morning commute to work) then Walthamstow Central station is just a short walk away. Perfectly located, whatever the occasion…
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... - We’ve gone through some major life stages in this house and it’s been amazing for us. As a couple, having the village pubs, restaurants, breweries, and coffee shops within 2 minutes walk have made it ideal for our lifestyle (The Castle is only steps away if you’re feeling super lazy). The kitchen diner, opening up into the garden, has been perfect for entertaining friends and family throughout the year. The garden itself is south facing, which means it’s a sun trap the majority of the day! This has been the dream house, even as our family has grown. With Wingfield Park, Tom Thumb Nursery and the Toy Library also only a 3 minutes walk away, our 2 year old would agree there is something for everyone.
