A family friendly four bedroom house on West Avenue.
This charming home offers over 900 feet of space across it’s two floors, configured in a way that is perfect for modern family life. On the ground floor both reception and kitchen diner are accessible from the hallway, but also interconnected by double doors between the two. This means these rooms are very flexible, capable of being divided or opened up as the need arises. The reception is the ideal spot for movie night with the kids, whilst the kitchen diner is perfect for when the family gathers for mealtimes. That latter room stretches across the full width of the back of the house, and offers views of (and access to) the rear garden.
Upstairs there are three generous and one small double bedrooms, plus a fully tiled three piece bathroom, complete with shower over the tub.
The rear garden is, like the house, generously proportioned. It is mostly laid to lawn, with border planting and a paved patio area. There are also two useful outside storage cupboards, plus side access for when you return from muddy cycling adventures with the kids – very handy!
Living here... - Everything you could possibly need is on your doorstep with this house, whether it’s dinner in the evening or weekend, drinks with friends at one of the many bars on Orford Road, neon and IPA at the Ravenswood, local history at Vestry House museum, or just grabbing a cup of coffee and watching the world go by. All that, plus the shortest of short strolls to Walthamstow Central when work beckons – it really doesn’t get more perfectly placed than that…
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... - This house has been our home for 43 years and we have been very happy here. It is great to have a good sized garden for the family to play in, and to relax, and an abiding memory for me is the sight and sound of the geese flying over at dusk. We are so central for all amenities yet peaceful. Plenty of choice for schools and places of worship. A short cycle/bus ride to Walthamstow Wetlands and easy access to Epping Forest, yet only 20-30 mins from the City and the West End. Of recent years quite a few creative people have made Walthamstow their home, which .make the occasional craft fair a great place for gift buying and the annual Art Trail a real treat. A new Cinema and William Morris Gallery in Lloyd Park complete the choice of activities. Just check out Walthamstow Market, the longest outdoor market in Europe, with the familiar call of "Pound a bowl".
I shall be sad to leave the house but would like to think that a new family will love it too. It also comes complete with wonderful neighbours.
