An incredibly spacious and family friendly four bedroom terraced house, perched on a quiet residential street close to the wide open spaces of Walthamstow Wetlands.
Internally there is a generous 1200 square feet of internal space. All of the room are well proportioned and uber-practical, making this a wonderful family home. The ground floor is comprised essentially of two rooms – the through lounge reception room and the kitchen diner. The former is 23 feet in length and has high ceilings, exquisite stripped wood flooring, A wood burner and a front aspect bay window. It’s a light and cheerful room, and multi-functional too. The front section is set out as the lounge area, and the rear as the dining area, meaning it’s a room that’s likely to be in constant use throughout the day. Directly behind sits the kitchen diner. It is kitted out with modern fitted units and wood work surfaces, as well as underfloor heating, making it as practical as it is stylish and ensuring it will be a joy for any home chef to use. There’s even space for a further table, where you can enjoy breakfast or your morning coffee, as you gaze through the double doors to the garden beyond.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are evenly split across the upper two floors. On the first floor you’ll discover two solid double bedrooms (including one across the full width of the front) and a very swish three piece family bathroom, complete with rainfall shower over the tub. Ascend to the second floor and you’ll find the final two bedrooms. First there is a double to the front, where you can lay in bed and look up aT the stars through the velux windows. To the rear sits the fourth bedroom, currently configured as a home office – very handy and now high on every buyers wish list. In between the two is a delightful three piece shower room, again with rainfall shower.
Outside there is tranquil and private rear garden. It has lawn and border planting, plus A paved patio area directly adjacent to the house.
Living here... - Perched just off Coppermill Lane, and thus perfectly positioned for the commute into town via St James Street or Blackhorse Road stations, the location of this house is pretty nigh on perfect. It’s just a short walk down Coppermill Lane to the Marshes, Walthamstow Wetlands (Europe’s largest urban wetland) and beyond - perfect for exercising any canine companions, or perhaps more accurately for them to exercise you! Head in the other direction and you will find this part of E17 is changing daily. Whether it be cafes and shops at the end of the market (check out the retail outlets and eateries of the crate park by St James Street station) or art and design spaces like Gnome House, Switchboard Studios and Blackhorse Workshop springing up around Blackhorse Road. Add to that the dozens of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance (try the Sunday roast at The Chequers – it’s amazing!) and you’ll agree with us – this part of E17 really does have it all…
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Coppermill Lane runs from the end of the High Street, all the way down to the glorious Walthamstow Wetlands, the largest urban wetlands nature reserve in Europe. The two ends of the road couldn’t be more different. The top of Coppermill Lane is right in the heart of the action, close to the market and home to The Mill Community Centre, which was once a library but saved by locals and turned in to a valuable community resource. Further down from The Mill, the road morphs into a rural idyll as it passes the Wetlands, and meets the open space of the marshes and the River Lea. There’s a friendly little shop part way down, a pub, and an excellent children’s play area. Coppermill Lane is also home to the Douglas Eyre Sports Centre, which is a regional football centre and home of London’s FA coach training programme. Terraced houses and Warner properties intermingle, and the listed Coppermill that gives the Lane its name still stands at the bottom of the road. THE surrounding roads are very quiet, and many, like Edward Road, are tree lined. Blackhorse Road tube, St James Street Overground station, and St James Park are all within easy walking distance. All in all, a nice little spot.
In The Owners Words... - We fell in love with this house the moment we saw it and have spent six happy years here, extending the house and our family in that time. It is perfectly situated for getting into town – about 15 minutes into King’s Cross on the Victoria Line from Blackhorse Road, and the same into Liverpool Street from the overground, and the local area has really blossomed in the last couple of years – one of our favourite spots is Lighthaus cafe, and Walthamstow Village is just a 25-minute walk away. The wetlands are great for letting off steam with a run or for walking to the Princess of Wales on the canal or the Ferryboat for a pint. All the neighbours are super welcoming and there’s a wonderful community spirit. The open plan living on the ground floor has suited us perfectly for socialising and as we’ve welcomed a little one into our lives, and we hope that it will be as loved by the next owners. We’re moving out of London to be closer to family – if we could pick up this house and take it with us, we would!
