A thoughtfully laid out and beautifully presented two bedroom terraced house on Chatham Road.
This delightful home has a wonderful feeling of warmth and welcome as soon as you walk through the front door. The first room you come to is the lounge. It’s a charming room, with high corniced ceiling, stripped wood flooring and a large bay window to the front to illuminate it all. It’s easy to imagine kicking back here whilst you stream the latest must see series. Wander further along the hallway, passed the uber-useful WC/utility room cleverly tucked under the stairs, and you come to the kitchen diner. This is a gorgeous, light filled room, with full width glazing along the far wall, skylight above and more of that stripped wood flooring underfoot. To one end sits the kitchen, fully kitted out with modern fitted units and beautiful work surfaces. The garden end is the dining part. Here you can sit under that skylight and look out through the French doors – the perfect spot for that morning coffee or dinner with friends...
- Upstairs you’ll find two en suite bedrooms. Both are proper doubles. The one to the front stretches across the full width of the house, and has it’s own three piece shower room attached. The rear bedroom overlooks the garden and benefits from a three piece bathroom.
Outside there is a low maintenance courtyard style garden, accessed from the kitchen diner. It is fully paved, with mature border planting. Where better to relax on a warm summer’s evening?
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... - We instantly fell in love with the location of the house and the Walthamstow energy. Direct neighbours are delightful and the street has a nice community spirit. We undertook a complete renovation of the house that was untouched for 50 years. New boiler, new central heating system, rewiring and complete redesign of the architecture. Everything has been thought out to create space, maximise light and a beautiful user journey. Materials include original encaustic tiles and a full reclaimed teak wood floor in the kitchen / living space.. The entrance corridor has hand painted patterns and a floor compass. The staircase has a mural designed and painted by atma, the artist of the award winning mural portrait of William Morris, next to the gallery. We grew and designed the large garden to feel sunny, refreshing and private. Over the last 5 years, the house has been filled with great memories, love, friends and family. As we set off for new horizons, we hope the new owners will enjoy this beautiful home as much as we did.
