A spacious and comfortable four bedroom terraced house on Falmer Road.
This extended family home offers in excess of 1400 square feet of internal space, set across three floors. The ground floor has two generous reception rooms. Both have bays, feature fireplaces and exposed wood flooring, with the one to the front used as the lounge and the one to the rear as the dining room. That latter room also has French doors leading out into the capacious, full width conservatory, which doubles as a utility area. The ground floor is completed by the galley style kitchen, kitted out with modern fitted units and solid oak work surfaces, and which has a serving hatch to the dining room (very handy!) and access to the conservatory.
Upstairs the four bedrooms are set across the two floors. On the first floor there are two doubles (both with plenty of build in storage) and a single, together with the three piece family bathroom. The second floor houses the final (and largest) double bedroom (this one dual aspect), as well as a smart, three piece shower room.
Outside, there is a private garden to the rear, with mature border planting and shingle covered seating area at the far end.
Living here... - You will find there is a plethora of things to do in this fantastic part of Walthamstow. Situated on the old Rectory Manor estate, the roads off Church Hill offer the perfect location to explore all things E17. Cut across Aubrey Road and down into Poets Corner, where you can grab a pint at the Olde Rose & Crown, before taking in a show at the theatre. Alternatively, head down the hill to The Bell, a fantastic gastro pub and the perfect spot whether you fancy a quiet pint at lunchtime or an evening out with friends. Continuing on the theme of good food, just around the corner from The Bell is the fantastic Buhler & Co, or once the weather warms up you can sit on the grass outside The Magistrates (it’s the old court building if you couldn’t guess) and enjoy a coffee from Perky Blenders. From there, why not head further down Forest Road and into Lloyd Park for a game of tennis or bowls, a wander around the gardens or an afternoon of culture at the award winning William Morris museum.
When work beckons, Walthamstow Central station is a gentle stroll away, meaning central London is within easy reach.
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.
In The Owners Words... - We have lived here for nearly three decades so the house has been extended to meet the needs of a growing family. The area has a great community feel with good schools, transport links and recreational spaces. There are plenty of activities for children and adults to enjoy, even the dog has joined a local WhatsApp group The Waltham Forest Feelgood Centre leisure complex is less than ten minutes walk away and there is a pharmacy, post office and art shop amongst the cafes at the Bell Corner. There is a resident parking scheme and the surrounding roads have benefitted from a new traffic calming project.
We lived locally before we moved to Falmer Road so we already knew that it was a really friendly and convenient location. We loved the wooded, verdant feel of the gardens and the elevated position of the house which keeps it light and bright and gives us some great views. We are moving to downsize and we will miss the creative hubs, the studios and galleries, being twenty five minutes from Oxford Circus, daily walks in the forest, evening strolls through the village and our lovely neighbours.
