A charming two bedroom semi-detached house, nestling peacefully on Byron Road in Poets Corner.
This delightful home offers over 800 square feet across two floors. On the ground floor there is a capacious reception room, with monochrome walls and exquisite stripped wood flooring underfoot. It offers plenty of space to both relax and dine, making it a wonderful multi-purpose room. Directly behind sit both the kitchen and bathroom. The former is kitted out with modern fitted units, and again there is room here to dine, or simply relax with that morning cuppa. The bathroom features a three piece suite, with a free standing roll top bath with shower over.
Upstairs there are two solid double bedrooms – one front and one back. Both have painted floorboards underfoot and plenty of room for storage.
Outside there is a private rear garden, which is accessed from the kitchen. It is mostly laid to lawn, with border planting and a small paved patio area immediately adjacent to the house.
Living here... - This property sits quietly in Poets Corner, close to the bright lights and buzz of Hoe Street and Walthamstow Village, yet cocooned such that it could be miles away from the hustle and bustle of East London. Everything is on your doorstep, from comedy at The Rose & Crown and drinks with friends at The Bell, through to the latest films at The Scene and artistic inspiration at the William Morris gallery. And that’s even without heading in the opposite direction to the Village and sampling the many culinary delights on offer there. Not only is this a great part of Walthamstow to reside in, just imagine being able to tell your friends you live somewhere with a name as aesthetically pleasing as Poets Corner…
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - Where in Walthamstow can you find a Greek theatre, supposed plague pit, and a collection of dead poets? Give up? Well I’ll tell you - the answer is Church Hill. OK, plague pits and dead poets make it sound a bit a grim so let me tell you more. The dead poets are road names - Milton, Aubrey and Byron. These roads, along with a few others, are often referred to as Poets Corner. This little bit of E17 has a great community vibe, and residents hold a cracking street party every year. The Greek theatre is in the grounds of Walthamstow School For Girls. Built in the 1920s, this open air theatre still hosts performances every summer. (Bit of Shakespeare anyone?) The plague pit? Well, that’s more of a local legend really. People say that Vinegar Alley, which links Church Hill to Church Lane, gets its name because locals sprinkled vinegar along the alley to stop the plague spreading from the graves beyond. This probably isn’t true, but it’s a good story to tell visitors. With easy access to the Village, Hoe Street, and the High Street (even Lloyd Park is just a short stroll away), Church Hill and its surrounding roads are a great base from which you can explore the rest of Walthamstow.
