This bright and spacious four bedroom end of terrace house, nestling in the very epicentre of Walthamstow Village, is a classic example of the Victorian builders art.
If you’re the next person to call it home, you’ll be luxuriating in more than 1300 square feet of bright and flexible living space, safe in the knowledge that there is plenty of room for all as the family grows. On the ground floor, pride of place belongs to the 300 square foot, sash bay fronted, dual aspect through lounge. This is as immensely practical as it is spacious & bright perfect whether you’re entertaining friends or merely relaxing with the little ones. It’s a space that will be in constant use throughout the day.
Wander through into hall you will also find a small coal cellar which is another great space for storage. Then the kitchen and here you will discover the heart of the home and another venue if you’re entertaining - 200 square feet plus, with a newly fully fitted kitchen & wood effect flooring. The kitchen comprises of a range style five ring gas hob double oven, dishwasher amongst the fitted units. Once again, there's no shortage of space & natural light here, thanks to the side bay. The ground floor is completed by the utility room which includes the downstairs toilet & basin. (Although if you wanted to create even more space, there is scope to extend into the unusually generous side return, subject to the usual consents and permissions).
- Upstairs your principal bedroom is another bright and spacious dual aspect room, with large bay double glazed sash window to the front. Bedroom two is a similarly generous double, whilst bedrooms three and four interconnected at the rear of the property, making them ideal as children’s bedroom and adjoining playroom, whilst still having room in both rooms to have double beds. The bathroom rounds off this generous level of the house.
To the rear is the private garden, mostly laid to lawn, and with a large L shaped patio area in the side return
Living here... - When your address is Orford Road, you are guaranteed to have literally everything that the Village in particular (and E17 in general) has to offer. Whether it's a cold beer on your way home from work (The Queen's Arms, The Village and The Castle are moments from your door), dinner of a Saturday evening or a Sunday morning brunch (far too many options to fit in here!) or simply relaxing with a latte and watching the world go by, there is plenty to choose from. And that's even before we mention the delights of the Ravenswood, the sights and sounds of the market and Hoe Street, and the green open spaces of Epping Forest.
Walthamstow Central Station is also within walking distance and offers great transport links into Central London via the Victoria Line and London Overground.
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... - Our Family home has been the centre of our family life for three generations, not only are we sentimental about our home we know whoever moves in will love it just as we do and will find it hard to let go, once they experience living here. Not only is it so convenient for transport, shops and eateries it’s just as quick getting into central London & city area by car. We also love the fact our street is quiet even though we’re so close to everything and that we have such good neighbours. What amazes me about this house, is that it has such great potential to be so much more, being the end of terrace our house has a wider garden and an unusually large side return over double the size of our neighbours. It measures about 8ft in width and about 25ft long. It was always a dream of mine to do a side extension and then on to the loft to realise its full glory. We will really miss this house and wish we could uproot and take it with us.
