A stylishly fashioned, two bedroom, ground floor Warner flat on Blyth Road.
This delightful home offers 580 square feet of internal space, all beautifully presented. To the front there is a well proportioned lounge, with two large windows that let the natural light flood in. Directly behind, off the hallway, sits the larger of the two bedrooms. A solid double, it is rear aspect and has a large built in wardrobe, as well as a feature fireplace.
The second bedroom is a generous single and positioned mid-point. It would make a fabulous home office in our view. It is followed by the sleek, three piece family bathroom, complete with rainfall shower over the tub.
The final room is the kitchen. It is kitted out with a range of base and eye level fitted units, as well as tiled floor and splashbacks, and offers views of (and access to) the private rear garden.
That garden has a paved patio area adjacent to the property, and a decked area at the far end, both offering space to relax and dine al fresco. The remained of the garden is laid to lawn.
Living here... - This property is perched on the border of Walthamstow and Leyton, and thus offers the best of both those great areas. Wander up Markhouse Road and it’s all things E17, with Walthamstow Leisure Centre a gentle stroll away, as are the beautiful and tranquil Walthamstow Marshes. You’re also within easy walking distance of the High Street, where you will find bars and cafes aplenty. Hop across Lea Bridge Road, and it’s E10 where you are heading. Take a meander through Jubilee Park, have a pint and a burger at The Hare & Hounds, try the amazing toasties at Lighthaus café, or jump on the train at nearby Lea Bridge station and travel one stop to Stratford, meaning Westfield and the Olympic Park are both within easy reach. There’s even easy access via Lea Bridge Road to Chatsworth Road and Clapton beyond, meaning you will genuinely never be short of things to see and do. Seriously, the only thing that is going to trouble you with this flat is deciding what to do next…
In This Area - By Walthamstow Diary - The whine and creak of a passing bus, air thick with the sound of church bells, a green flash of colour in the sky as parakeets fly overhead. A tangle of quiet residential streets, allotments and green spaces, all presided over by a 200 year old lighthouse. Doesn’t sound like Walthamstow does it? But it is - this is Markhouse Road. Whilst Markhouse itself is a main road, the streets that lead off it are anything but. Properties here are a mix of Warner flats, terraced houses, and even some former farmers cottages.
Check out the Pumphouse Museum - it’s free and has working steam engines. It also hosts occasional pop up restaurants in an old Victoria Line tube carriage. Jimmy’s Cafe serves a mean fry up and really good Thai food. St James Street and St James Park are just around the corner, and the Marshes, Central Walthamstow and Walthamstow Village are all within walking distance. As for the lighthouse, it’s actually a church topped with a lantern instead of bells. If you ever get the chance to climb up the tower, do it. You have to navigate ancient, rickety wooden ladders, but the view from top is fantastic.
In The Owners Words... - This house has been a great home for us and we will be sad to leave but we have decided to move closer to family. People always comment on the feel of our home, it's light but also very comfortable and cosy. We love that it is only a quick cycle to the ‘Village’ and we love to visit The Kitchen, our favourite restaurant. We quite often walk to Chatsworth Road on a Sunday and enjoy the lovely market with fresh cheeses and pretty handmade soaps. It is easy to get to Leyton station and equally easy to Walthamstow, Blackhorse Rd and St James Street. The transport connections in Walthamstow are the best I've seen after 12 years of living in different places across London. The road is quiet, peaceful and green and we will miss our neighbours, who are always friendly and helpful. We love hosting BBQs in the garden in the summer. We hope that someone can get as much joy out of this home as we have.
